Indianapolis To Cater To Muslims

A big todo is being made of the footbaths for Muslims to wash their feet prior to prayer that are planned for the airport currently under construction in Indianapolis. As one would expect the nutty wild eyed columnist seems to approve or at least criticizes the outcry of local residents.

Ablution, the ritual washing of hands, face, arms and feet, is a requirement for
Muslims before prayer. More than 100 Muslim cab drivers have been washing their
feet in the regular sink in the taxi restroom or going outside with bottles of
water. Since special foot sinks are more hygienic, the airport authority says
that installing them is in the interest of public health.

I thought religious symbols and practices were taboo on government and certain public grounds thanks to the ACLU and its pals because it made some folks feel uncomfortable. Now suddenly it appears we are taking steps to encourage such religious rituals at the Indianapolis International Airport. The airport maintains that since it takes government money only for certain aviation related expenses this should be alright. Bulls**t! Believe it or not, the ACLU decided not to challenge in other cases of footbaths in government or tax supported facilities. Hmmm. Agenda? It's been mentioned over and again. Here's more ammo.

Here is an opportune time for the anti-American liberals to try to appear that they are sincere in their beliefs regarding separation of church and state, no matter how erroneous their beliefs may be, and they dropped the ball. Guess that lends a little more credibility to the agenda theory as if there isn't enough evidence already.

Just an observation.

So, if the issue is rituals, all those people who pray before flights should be asked to do it outside, I guess. Frankly, I am all for the idea. I don't relish the idea of washing anything in a sink where people have been washing their feet. Once again, you are grasping at straws. It's a foot bath, for god's sake. It's not like they are erecting shrines.

You're missing the point entirely, Mark. It's about consistently applying these idiotic laws and judicial rulings. These aren't for the run of the mill Jew to stop in and wash off his or her feet. Don't lose sight what it really is.

Muslims Against Sharia denounce the decision by the Indianapolis International Airport to install footbaths. The controversy will further alienate the non-Muslim population. Footbaths will be used as urinals, which will provoke tensions, and more importantly, installing religious ritualistic devices on public property clearly violates the separation of Church and State.

For Islamists, this is a step towards Islamization of of the West; for Americans, it is a step towards Dhimmitude.
