I bet if you do a blind comparison of Halal vs. Regular Meat, a Muslim would not be able to tell the difference.
I guarantee you are correct.

fyi, Popeyes uses a supplier that supply's them with machine-slaughtered Halal certified chicken.

"To our loyal fans – we have changed our chicken supplier in Canada for a number of reasons, including supply sustainability, specification adherence, food safety, and brand consistency. As a result, the chicken is now machine processed rather than hand processed. It is, however, still Halal certified. Please visit your local restaurant manager if you have any questions or would like to view the official certificates. We want you to know we made the change to ensure that we can continue to serve you the chicken that you love from Popeyes!"

Do you have a study that shows machine-slaughtered Halal certified process still causes pain to the animal?
Did you read the study? As long as the neck is cut without stunning, the animal will feel pain.

Not like we stun animals now....Lots of reports on how animals are treated and are not stunned and it's not worst than conditions they're being raised in at the factory farms

Just don't eat meat if you're concerned...Halal or not makes zero difference to the "pain" animal feels... They're in pain entire lives UpTo slaughtering and halal or not makes zero difference

What does the year have to do with someone's religion or faith?
It's not my religion, but it is something timeless that relates directly to a specific religion or faith based idea.
Much like how the Jewish have their Kosher.

If Muslims want to eat halal they should open up their own chain of restaurants instead of harassing a publically owned company. Why should the rest of us eat cruelly slaughtered chicken just because Islam mandates it? I would be uncomfortable knowing that the chicken I'm eating had its neck slashed open alive and died in excruciating pain instead of being stunned first.

Nobody is forcing you to eat it? If you don't want to eat it...Go elsewhere

As for pain... Animal is in pain regardless of method...All their lives in factory farms...Halal or not...Animals aren't stunned despite what they tell you .

Ever eat seafood as well?

I would like to think with what we've learned scientifically, psychologically and through errors in history over decades (1400-2000 years or so) would outweigh this type of religious silliness. That's why the year matters.

Yet people go-to church on Sundays, , observe lent and etc

The church still rules society despite supposed separation from govt and "norms" like abortion, contraceptives, stem cells etc
