Should All Hot Dogs be Required by Law to be Kosher/Halal?

The two sets of rules are nearly identical and following them provides enormous benefits to health of humans and humane treatment of animals.  The benefits of mandating Kosher/Halal rules for hot dogs - one of the most widely consumed foods in the U.S. - would far outweigh the benefits of the much more intrusive mandatory vaccination laws.

Pork products such as bacon, ham and pork sausage would still be available to those who love the swine.  People don't buy hot dogs because they want pork.  Pork and beef hot dogs taste almost exactly the same, especially to people who smother them in condiments as most do.  Most people are unaware that there is pork in that ballpark frank.

You may debate this point as you please with two exceptions:

1)  No mention of the constitution banning forcing a religious belief on anyone.   The health benefits are more important than any religious significance.  If you seriously stress out about "establishment of religion," keep in mind that under my idea Jewish and Muslim children will not be fed a product in government schools that violates their parents' religious training.  Besides the constitution is being completely ignored and we have consented to that by anyone on this board's definition of consent.

2) - No debate about whether Kosher/Halal food preparation provides health benefits.  If you're that ignorant, I hope you choke on your next plate of barbecued ribs.

Obviously no. Nor should the government be involved in any such claim.

Government should stay out of religion.

If Jewish and Muslim moms are concerned about the holiness of the food their child eats, they can prepare a lunch for their child.

That's how we did it 50 years ago.  Some kids ate the school-prepared lunch, some kids brown-bagged it.

It worked quite well.   

When did that stop?    Anyways, that's the simple solution.    Government should steer clear of "blessing" food.

Let's hope you aren't in charge when the Ebola virus gets loose in America.

Government should never regulate foods or enforce Kosher only standards. That being said, I only eat kosher hot dogs. Not for religious purposes, but because I know what goes into non-kosher dogs, and it makes me want to yak.

Side note; why do we call them hot dogs when there is no dog meat in them? If anything the government should force honesty in advertising, either add dog meat or change the name LOL

Yes, the market can fix it by people buying kosher hot dogs.  There's no need for government involvement
