Skip to comments.MSU installs a foot-washing facility (Muslim footbaths)
Posted on 11/24/2008 5:17:49 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
In hopes of meeting the needs of Muslim students, a foot-washing station was recently installed in Minnesota State Universitys Centennial Student Union.
What we try to do around this building is provide things that make all kinds of groups of students feel comfortable, said student union director Laurie Woodward.
The idea was brought to the Student Union Board several years ago, but it wasnt until the renovation of several bathrooms on the second floor that the space became available.
The station was paid for entirely through student fees. Woodward said anyone is welcome to use the room even though it was put in to serve the religious needs of Muslim students.
Foot washing is a rite observed by several religious groups. Muslims are required to perform foot washing in preparation for ritual prayer and before handling and reading the Quran. Many Muslims pray five times a day, and each time they wash their feet, hands, head and face. This process is called wadhu.

If I was a student there I would sidle up and pee in it.
I mean, it looks like a urinal, right?
Great lookin’ Urinal...
Is a White House installation next? How soon will all public buildings be required to install these things?
Why am I picturing pile of turds in it?
The pink color is a nice touch.
Anybody got a can of lard?
So, MSU just performed the Dubya Cringe: the fetal position and whining, “Please don’t hate me!”
Dhimmis. This whole country is made up of sheep and dhimmis.
Foot baths again! I want to know if every shack they live in their countries of peace have one. Shaking my head again!
Muslims maybe, but I suspect the foot fetishists are behind it all.
Well, I think it’s only fair. The place has been a brain washing facility for quite some time now. Equal time for other body parts!
Step 1. Devise a PORTABLE foot-wash station.
Step 2. Sell it to 1,000,000 Muslim cabbies and students.
Step 3. Retire.
What is next? An A$$-Ki$$ing station so the Americans can serve their Muslim masters?
Minnesota State?-lets hope Luther Van Damme doesn’t take a dump in it.
There is no “separation of church and state” when liberals want something.
How about a series of FACE WASH stations for all of the ‘reporters’ with their heads stuck up Obambi’s @$$?
I’d prefer that they dispense with the foot washing and do all a favor by applying a little deodorant.
Now if the wash the rest of their body, stinking towel heads.
I would simply hang raw bacon on the faucet handles. In my college days, I surely would have.
I weep for my country
Why don’t they save the costs and just have then walk into a stall, close the door, stick their ugly dirty Muslim feet in the toilet, and hit “flush.”
Looks like a urinal to me. :-)
I want a shooting range with the bible on tape playing 24 hours a day so I can worship
How about giving students a decent real education without all the current PC and diversity crap so that we will have people in the future that can solve problems instead of being problems....
lets just give them snorkles so they can just stay there
I’m thinkin it’d make a good urinal after some beers.
But thats just my thoughts.
Would the state—through student fees—pay for a prayer chapel for Christians who want to pray ONCE a day?
How about kosher food for Jewish students?
(I thought not...)
And drop a loaf or three in the trough.
Minnesota. January. Foot baths. Pneumonia. I’m liking it.

Translation: “We’re scared sh*%less of the Muzzies”.
Question, Mussies are washing feet in preparation for prayer, 5 times a day no less. I don’t imagine that they are going off campus to pray, so they must have an on campus prayer room.
Is there a Christian prayer room if not why not?
If it is a violation of “church and state”, then why are’nt the muslims being held to the same standard?
Certainly wouldn’t want to confuse that with a pissoir, would we? Might offend our muslime brothers.
Send treats to the troops...
Great because you did it!
oh for God’s sake.
Are they going to comply?
This ought to philosophically place the moslems in direct opposition with the hippies who, for whatever reason, seem radically opposed to hygiene in any form.
Every student who goes into the restroom should it down and wash his feet. It’s there for everyone, not just muslims, right?
And why on earth should muslims feel "uncomfortable" with the dominant culture in the place they choose to reside? I am so sick of liberals who try to encourage and validate the idea that America is inherently offensive to other people. Liberalism is like a virus that causes the infected to commit cultural suicide.
I thought that stood for Making Stuff Up
I an an alumnus of Mankato State University and will no long give any donations and will make it clear to alumni affairs that I find this revolting.
Muslim State University...
My humanities professor in college said that the mosques in the middle east were stunningly beautiful, but they stinked to high heaven. This was because moslems clean “7 openings in the body” but not much else, and that includes their feet. So those beautiful Persian carpets stink like dog poo.
That night a few rental RVs with Muslims came in...They all went over to the concrete pad at the sewer dump station to wash their feet...There were public restrooms with showers directly across from the dump stattion.
Here is a list of MUSLIM Nations where special accomodations are made for CHRISTIANS:
I recommend a biological and radiological scrubbing station for all Muslims before the come on campus. Or for that matter before they go anywhere. X-rays too.
