Skip to comments.New University of Regina bathroom facilities help Muslim students prepare for prayer
Posted on 09/20/2013 10:07:01 AM PDT by Morgana
The University of Regina is going to great lengths to help its Muslim students avoid doing the same when washing for on-campus prayer sessions.
The university has installed foot-baths in a public washroom at its Riddell Centre, in order to allow Muslim students many of whom pray numerous times a day, and wash themselves beforehand to clean their feet in a way that isnt awkward and difficult through a use of regular sinks.
Ive seen them do it. Its tough for them, Nathan Sgrazzutti, president of the U of R Students Union, said on Tuesday of the troubles that many of the more than 700 practising Muslims at the campus had experienced when preparing for prayers.
Were showing our ability to cater to their needs.
Two foot-baths, resembling large sinks with seats, are in a mens washroom following their installation earlier this summer at what university spokesman Dale Johnson said was a total cost of about $35,000.
I havent been in the womens washroom, but Im under the understanding its in both, Sgrazzutti said, lauding the U of Rs administration for its efforts to assist Muslim students from Regina and those who have come to the campus from other countries.

I guess Christians can pray there too right? Oh forgot, Christians don’t need to call attention to themselves when they pray. They are taught to do it in secret; in closets or private places where they can pray to God without worrying what other people might think and do so honestly and openly. My bad..,
Toilet paper not to be found? Yeah, that’s a muzzie thing.
That’s why Allah have them their right hand, right?
***The university has installed foot-baths in a public washroom***
And when the muzzlemen aren’t around they become urinals.;-D
Kinda hard to wash blood off their hands using foot-baths, isn’t it?
Animals,, washing their feet in the sinks. This is Canada, but its disgusting that we have imported so many of them too. Probably the very worst crime of Bush against freedom was to increase moslem immigration to the USA 5 fold.
Are there separate toilets for those undergoing a sex change operation? Gotta cater to everybody, you know!
Syracuse University has muslim foot washing stations in Hendricks Chapel.
And there’s a mosque just down the street from there to boot.
Both things torque me.
Just toss in a handful of bacon bits every time you pass by.
Mosems are on a different wavelength than normal people; their thoughts, perceptions, and desires are formed by their total immersion in islam and ignorance and avoidance of any real interaction with the non-moslem world....and when there is interaction it is to change our world to theirs.
Most moslems are oblivious to or misinformed about what exists beyond the narrow confines of islam....... They are little more than ultra-fanatical rubes with severe tunnel vision...who are determined to inflict their standards on American Society and any other country they invade.
This is another example of “stealth Jihad” and Americans are yielding to it.
Oh, were those things footwash stations?
Damn. I thought they were new-school urinals, I peed in one.
I thought the design awkward, now I know why.
If Muslims represent a large enough customer base, it makes sense. Who wants their feet in the sink where you wash your face and hands.
Religious tolerance does not mean abdication to their religion.
So that they do not wash their feet in the regular sinks.
Good useful addition to the facilities. Footbaths for the Muzzies, floor-level urinals for everybody else.
Why don’t they install Bacon Vending Machines, and thin out the herd????
As good kufr, every non muslim should wash his/her feet in one of these footbaths in the presence of a muslim. They can’t reserve the use of them for Muslims only and, as Muslims believe that kufr are unclean, our use of the footbaths would spoil them for the musselmen. You’ve heard the expression ‘voting with one’s feet’? This would be an example of that.
Somewhere to take a dump when all other stalls are full. Why waste perfectly good bacon to pollute the footbaths?
Jews and Christians need not apply for their needs.
Minnesota State University at Mankato installed Muslim foot baths in the student union building in 2008. Needless to say the ACLU said nothing about the separation of church and state.
Cater, huh? The definition of that word is to indulge, to please, to humor, to nurture. Now imagine the same statement made about Christian students.
It wouldn't happen in a million years.
Anyone else completely grossed out at the thought of someone washing their FEET in a public sink in which other people have to wash their HANDS??
Well, on an encouraging note, there are very clear indicators that God is really moving on the SU campus. There have been some significant changes that have happened and are in the works that will change the direction of the university. It’s an answer to many years worth of prayer by some very committed Christians praying weekly for the campus.
Anyone who is so inclined is encouraged to keep praying for the university. SU is so big and so diverse that it would have a real impact not only on Syracuse and CNY, but on many parts of the world as there are many foreign nationals who attend there and ultimately return home.
Considering how often they wash their feet, their feet are probably cleaner than their hands.......
Think about it....your feet were washed in the shower this morning and were encased in clean socks up until this time...your hands, however have touched all kinds of things both personal and public...you shook hands with seven people, handled papers and objects touched by others and blew your nose three times......and you're worried about feet??????
“The little Foxes Spoil the Vine”....
The university has installed foot-baths in a public washroom .... in order to allow (appease) Muslim students many of whom pray numerous times a day, and wash themselves beforehand to clean their feet in a way that isnt awkward and difficult through a use of regular sinks.
This is the USA NOT an Islamic Nation....this is not part of our ‘culture’ practices nor that of our Judeo-Christian heritage...these practices are not who we are...... We are fools for adapting to their culture and practices... for each inch they take away from ‘who we are’, and appease their demands.... THEY see as a victory for the Islamification of America....which their ultimate goal is to dominate this country.
I have great fear this nation chooses to forfeit who we are.... and for that can no longer discern ....who we are not.
We are soon going face the same problems Europe is having and of which they are loosing those battles to Islam.
In every country they enter they bring violence and dominance...and criminal elements we have yet to see will get out of hand in no time.
