( Boston ) University Installs Foot Baths For Muslims
Boston Channel ^ | November 29, 2011

Posted on 11/30/2011 11:07:40 AM PST by george76

In Boston, one university has taken steps to help Muslim students maintain an important ritual: bathing before prayer

...

Across the country a number of universities, including the University of Michigan in Dearborn and George Washington University in Washington D.C., have installed foot baths.

So have two airports, the Indianapolis Airport and KCI Airport in Kansas City, Missouri. In each case the move came with some degree of resistance.

...

Some of the foot baths in other states were built using public funds. The American Civil Liberties Union generally objects to public money being used for religious structures.But they don't take issue with the foot baths because, they say, anyone can use them

It would be appropriate for all Christans and Jews to begin using said footbaths several times a day. Every day.

You can never have feet that are too clean.

Anybody can use a Church and is welcome to celebrate Christmas but the ACLU has a real problem with any of that.

They do make inviting urinals, however....

How about a bar of soap made from pig lard?
Actually, those aren’t foot baths they are just clogged storm drains filled with icy slushy water. Normal this time of the year in Boston.

My feet have “little piggies” on them. May I use these footbaths?

Just thinking out loud now, but since two airports have installed foot baths, perhaps, hygienically, passengers should use the foot baths AFTER the TSA shoe inspection (who knows how much fungus we pick up?).

They say it’s so they can bathe before prayer. Is this all they ever bathe? I’ve known a few and it’s either A) They only wash their feet and never anything else or B) They never pray.

If you get a government grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, then I would assume so - remember the Crucifix in the jar of . . . I can't even say or type it.

As Andrew McCarthy and others have said, the left is only to willing to oblige those who want Islamism to flourish in the USA. Seems to me the liberals’ main mistake is to just assume everyone around the world is just like us in terms of political philosophy, and all religions are just silly “cultural fairy tales” which they despise. Throw in all the hatred for European peoples, culture and civilization these people have been taught, and it makes sense for them to want to dilute Christianity and Judiasm.

But many who are pushing Islam have a very, very different view of civilization, government, society and religion's role in all three. The left either does not realize this or does not care. Liberals will be the first to pay the price, but we all will.

I am hoping America wakes up in time, but I also believe many of these occurrences were predicted.

I'm glad my faith in Gd remains,even if my faith in our government and people fades away.

To make them even more comfortable, are they also adding a nearby shelf to set down their school books, lunch box, C4, wires, alarm clock, and batteries?

Those aren’t foot baths, they’re a place to dump diapers. And other used items that you would dispose of in a lavatory.

I used to work at a company where we had some Muslim guy wash his feet in the sinks in the men's room. That was pretty disgusting.

Surely the buildings at Boston College are old enough where they have the urinals that run from the floor to about waist high? Jigger the valve on one of those so the water runs constantly, get some imam to bless it or whatever is necessary and presto! You have a foot bath that is in keeping with the desirability to recycle existing facilities.

We need to start a religion that requires all human defecation be performed while facing Mecca. Why not? All religious beliefs are equal, right?

Those footbaths make superb urinals - easy to hit and little splashback.

I’m sure that Boston University has them, too. No offense meant to BC, though do I wish they’d beat Notre Dame more often.

"Using our bathroom ended up being a messy situation with a lot of water on the floor," said Center director Margot Veldivia.

So when the center upgraded the bathrooms they installed ritual foot baths.

"The students have been very grateful. They didn't ask for this but rather we understood the tradition and how necessary it was in their daily lives," she said.

I’ve known a few as well.

The ones I know wash out their mouths, rinse their faces and hair, rinse their arms and hands, a little water up the nose (which I will admit, I did try on recommendation to prevent colds: to my surprise, it works and I still do it once a day....haven’t had a cold in three years) then of course, the feet.

And the ones I knew bathe at least once a day.

And yes, they pray too. Of course, the ones I knew were Turkish, no Arabs, so mileage may vary.

why don’t they wash their butts before they stick them up in the air?

When they answer the ‘call to prayer’ I am sure that the people not in the first row would appriciate it.

Are they big enough for a doggie bath?

or, as a commenter on the site suggested, a place to wash your flip-flops after you’ve stepped in something?

The special little baths will come in handy for the implacable Muzzies to wash the blood from their hands after they set off their bombs or fire their guns against sleepwalkers they view as vile infidels.

Which WILL happen.

All of this makes my faith even stronger; there is no longer a fuzzy line between good and evil. It is clearly marked and I thank Gd everyday that I am able to see it-AND that He is with me.

1-Enter the the bathroom.
2-Check for surveillance.Disable it if possible.
3-Dump pig grease,ham juice,pig blood,pig's feet or any other pork product in the basins.
4-Repeat every day until the idea is abandoned.
5-Encourage your friends to do the same.
If repeated attempts to disrupt and annoy work for the 0ccutards,it should work for the rest of us.
