Skip to comments.( Boston ) University Installs Foot Baths For Muslims
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

Can you piss in them ?
What size are they? about big enough to hold a pork roast?
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?).
“Anyone can use them”
...I’ve been walking through pig sh&% all day, so thanks! Don’t mind if I do.
I’d be tempted to drop a deuce in it.
I’m a horrible person.
Next time I’m in Boston, will have a backpack of bacon, lard, and ham-hocks.
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.
“Im a horrible person.”
You sound like a regular guy...
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.
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.
How about Holy Water bowls too?
We need to start a religion that requires all human defecation be performed while facing Mecca. Why not? All religious beliefs are equal, right?
Boston University, not Boston College
