“I wonder why they don’t accomodate Christians also? Maybe Christians should raise hell.”


The problem is that biblical Christianity requires no (not one) ritual (Romans ch. 14; Col. ch. 2; etc.) The TRUE God seeks those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24), not in earthly ritual, earthly washings, earthly temples, earthly shrines or earthly priesthoods.

But(!) I wonder if we could come up with a few rituals (just for the fun of it) that we could say require some modifications of public facilities. I would do it for fun, but I’m afraid somebody would actually create a new religion out of it.

Well said!!

;^). . .A good posting here. . .am e-mailing/sharing this story as an 'fyi to brighten your day'. Perhaps if we start sharing more info. . .some heat will be generated. That said. . .add to this, the 'Muslim cabbies' wanting the 'right of refusal' to use against passengers. . .the Flying Imams. . .the Muslim women's gym. . .basketball and swimming. . .their demands, et al and ad nauseum. . .

Meantime; truly do not like the implications of this 'slippery slope'. . .

“Having been in a few cabs around the country, a good supply of Speed Stick and air freshener would be a better choice.”

Hey! I took a Greyhound bus from Winston-Salem, NC to Nashville, TN a few years ago and there were two very, very smelly rag-heads seated near the front of the bus. I was seated near the restroom. The scent flowed back through the bus and we were gagging!

In Virginia we took a break and I purchased a L A R G E can of Glade air freshener in a convenience store while others went to get burgers or whatever. I sat the can on the floor in the isle. Every few minutes as we traveled along I would reach down and let out a burst.

If I dozed and didn’t spray, the other passengers would, without hesitation, awaken me and ask, “Hey! Where be ‘dat Glade man?!” “Let’s hear sum o’ dat pssss...pssss.” I was the only caucasian on the bus, by the way, and I was a hero on that bus, except to those two rag heads.

I have never been in any airport, except for Ben-Gurion Airport in Israel, that provides kosher food concessions for Jewish travellers.

I once handed a Russian guy a specimen bottle to pee in. The nurse about gagged when she was telling me he somehow shit in it instead....there is only one way he could have cleanly placed a large turd in a tiny bottle.

Once again, blame Bill Clinton for all this. He rewarded Somalia for Black Hawk Down by bringing 90,000 of those savages into America scot free, with most of them becoming cab driving jihadists. Tell your friends this next time they say “I wish Clinton were still President”.

Footbasins? Wonderful.

That means I get to carry around a plastic baggie full of Pig $hit.

And I know some basins in which to put it.

These basins are a GREAT idea.

I think many Americans don't seem to realize that the Muslims you are allowing to immigrate to the USA are mainly from Afghanistan and Somalia.

These two countries have long ago adopted perhaps the most extreme interpretation of Islam.

Not only is America going all out to appease Muslims, but you are going all out to appease the extremists and this is extremely dangerous.

..an airport official who requested anonymity. "Why are we catering to their rituals? We don't do it for any other religion."

Just think. If the official used his name while uttering a common sense question, he/she would be fired faster than Imus. What a society we live in that one has to fear for one's livelihood and career investment when spouting a little logic. Words can harm and even kill in today's PC clime.

By the way, you have very cogent articles; thanks.

This is a clear case of government encouraging a specific religion, a violation of the Second Amendment.
IMO part of FR's biggest benefits is the ability of people to come here and learn things. I've learned lots of things here over the years, so I'm not claiming any vast intellect here.
I do, however, know that there is one thing you need to learn and that is what the Bill of Rights says, 'cause you don't seem to know what the hell you're talking about!
The FIRST Amendment is what you're trying to talk about. The Second is about the right to keep and bear arms.

I hope you take my correction as helpful, despite my callousness.

For sure; and cannot be said often enough. (& as per my post #15 as well). Canada is ahead of us in accomodating Muslim 'Civil Rights'. . .but we are not so far behind. 'CAIR' there and here. . .both working to foster legal accomodations so as to facilitate their radical Muslim agenda. . .

Just pondering this gives one a 'stop the world; I want to get off' moment. . .

Why is the airport accommodating employees of other companies? I have no problem if the taxi company, using taxi company money, built a taxi-stand/drivers lounge/mosque near the airport.

I could understand the issue if the airport was accommodating muslim airport employees, or muslim passengers.

But the airport and its facilities are not there for the taxi drivers. They are there for the passengers first, then the airport employees.

And they certainly cannot make an excuse about the cabbies not being able to drive to a nearby mosque.

This is a case of using taxpayer money to fund a religious facility for non-government employees.

Enjoy your local barbecue while it lasts, Kansas City. It won't be long before its banned for offending muslims.

Just visited your blog. . .thanks for link. Extremely funny - and enlightening. LOL on this excerpt:

"Years ago after a dinner party at my house, I was horrified when I went into the bathroom. Toilet paper was strewn everywhere, the toilet was was on the verge of overflowing, the floor was all wet and there were footprints on the toilet seat. It was a nightmare I will never forget."

When Cheryl Crowe was hyping - as are many 'greenies' - the one-sheet-per-person toilet paper approach; I could only wonder if she/they would not want exceptions. . .say to 'food handlers' - which actually, means 'all of us'; of course. . .but wondered where does Cheyrl dine. . .her favorite night spots. . .are these one-piece-per' people going to take care of her food and drink? How about her neighbors and it is cook-out party-time. One sheet per person? What are these people thinking? Or, rather NOT thinking. . .What next here. . .the one-hand only custom would be then called into play?

Now; upon reading your blog; am wondering; do Muslim 'food handlers' here. . .working in dining establishments, use toilet paper? If not. . .should they not be working elsewhere; and not handling the public's food? Or is that Left-handers need not apply. . .?

Anyway; more than I want to think about perhaps; but it had crossed my mind. . .and your blog reminded me. .

No muslim food handlers do not as a rule use toilet paper. They use water and their left hand and fingers.

Stay away from the ones with long or uncut fingernails.

I'll leave the rest to your imagination.

It is bad really bad. Im sure many who have lived in a Muslim country can relate to that story though.

I found out later who did that to my bathroom and I just had to bite my tongue. The reprobate had climbed up on top of the toilet flung down his pants and dropped a bomb and then sprayed water and crap all over the bathroom. it was the most disgusting thing you have ever seen.

Over here we call it at times a third world country with first world facilities. The guy looked okay, he just didn't know how to use a toilet.

I've caught a lot of flack from many Americans visiting the region for a few days staying a five star hotel and going home thinking there is not difference between us and them.

Again a LOL on your story. . .

Have a friend who who was in Morocco; and invited to dinner. . .bathroom had no tp; but it did have a stack of washcloths(?). . .Forgot to ask him if they were clean. . .or used. . .and did not ask him if the cook had long fingernails; or not.

I have been to Japan and experienced some of this as well. . .five-star hotel with bathrooms in the public areas designed for both persuasions. . .or inclinations. . .

It was not until reading your blog that I 'got it' that tp was in fact not a requirement/necessity. . .if only by hindsight. . .so to speak. And it made me think as well; that here is another common-denominator that Libs and the 'others'. . .share. For different reasons. . .but same 'bottom line'. . .

You are correct about the breeding. A muslim is encouraged to marry within his tribe in order to keep the tribe ‘strong.’ The inbreeding has resulted in an abundance of murdering, Muslim psychopaths.

When I'm in a moslem country or in any country that has a culture different to my own, I learn the taboos, especially regarding religion and act accordingly. I respect most of their beliefs, after all it is their country. If I don’t like the culture I am glad when I leave but while there, I try to be courteous and understanding. Enough said. Now in my country, I expect foreign visitors or immigrants to respect my culture which includes love for my dogs. If they don’t like it, LEAVE! Not next week or even tomorrow but right NOW!

Our leaders are gutless, cringing, naive ‘Girlie People’! That, in a nutshell, is one of the main reasons as to why much of the world despises us. There are other reasons too, but that is the main one. “My God, they won’t even stand for themselves in their own country! They let ‘Tin Pot’ dictators tell ‘em what to do and would rather lock up their own citizens than upset foreigners! How, in God’s name can you respect people like that”! Welcome to America, except of course, if you are a Christian - you know how it is, they seem to upset the foreigners!

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Airport officials are debunking a story posted on the Internet.

The story from WorldNetDaily.com claims that Kansas City International Airport built foot-washing basins for Islamic taxi drivers. The article alleges that airport police are afraid of Middle Eastern men who congregate near the wash areas.

KCI spokesman Joe McBride said the story isn’t true.

“It’s a case of mistaken information on the Internet and we’re trying to clear it up,” McBride said.

Taxi drivers said they comprise people from all over the world — not just the Mideast.

“All (kinds of) cab drivers we have here — Somalis, Christians, Jews, Orthodox. Everybody we have here, every nationality,” taxi driver Abdul Sharif said.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
McBride said the wash stations were installed about a year ago when the airport expanded the taxi facility and added another bathroom. He said the wash stations weren’t made for the exclusive use of anyone or any group in particular.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“The guys making a big issue out of it — it’s not just for Muslims,” taxi driver Shareif El-Mahdi said.

“I think the Internet article blew it out of proportion. (It) had the wrong info about the facilities, gave the wrong impression. I think once people learn the facts, they’ll see it’s not a big deal at all,” McBride said.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Doubletalk. Can we infidels wash our dog poo covered shoes in them?

How about washing the salt off of our finest Missouri cured country hams in the wash basins?

Not that we’d waste a ham, but we’d see some heads exploding I’m sure.
