An Idaho company claims their pork laced ammunition will not only kill Muslims but also send them “straight to hell.”
Jihawg Ammo promises to provide “a peaceful and natural deterrent to radical Islam” with bullets coated in pork-infused paint, which the company claims makes the ammo “haram,” or unclean. Therefore, the company claims, the pork-infused bullets will not only kill a Muslim, but also keep that dead Muslim from entering paradise.
The pork laced ammunition is sold by South Fork Industries, based in Dalton Gardens, Idaho. Slogans and claims on the company’s website include “Give ‘Em a Spankin’ With Some Bacon,” “Put Some Ham in MoHAMed,” and “Peace through Pork.”
Huffington Post reports the company was started by a group of Idaho gun enthusiasts angry about the idea of an Islamic cultural center opening near Ground Zero.
The company claims the pork-infused paint makes Jihawg Ammo “the only commercially available ammunition with the added deterrent factor of eternal damnation for the fundamentalist Islamic Jihadist.”
However, experts say the company’s theological strategy is based on an inaccurate understanding of the Quran. Islamic scholars agree that Muslims would not be banned from heaven for coming into contact with pork.
And, of course, many rational people simply dismiss the whole idea of heaven as being nothing but a silly superstition that gives false comfort to those frightened and unable to face their own mortality.
