We're pretty adept at putting our feet in regular sinks when need be.  We don't need super special prayer sinks.  Thanks, though.

While details of the practice vary by sect, Muslims are required to wash their faces, hands and feet before praying as an act of ablution, or ritual purification. Forms of ablution are practiced in almost all major faiths.

The ritual washing of others' feet is practiced by some Christians as a sign of humility and emulating Jesus Christ, who was said to have washed the feet of his disciples before the Last Supper.

Wow, that's really the story. I'm surprised these people are smart enough to breathe.

they aren't.  they have alarms on their phones with reminders.

The only smart people I know from TN are transplants from other states.

I'm a smart person that used to live there, but I was transplanted. From Alabama.

There is only so much one can keep track of to worry about. One is going to have to choose between Muslims with clean feet and morons and bigots in the state legislature.

Do you have to be an uneducated, fearful, ignorant, bigoted redneck to be elected as a southern Republican, or does it just give you an edge over the not-insane competition?

I am from there, and I know I'm smart because I moved away.

My guess is that Muslims had expressed concern about making it a felony to practice Sharia law because it would make them felons for things like having Islamic leaders mediate a divorce, and the journalist just read that they were worried and filled in the details on their own.

2013-03-25 09:31:20 PM  
They should be very worried about the installation of this sink not because it's a secret Muslim prayer sink used to force Sharia Law on good Christian white people but because it's been installed two farking feet from an electrical panel.

While most states exempt state owned buildings from local building codes and inspections, I find it hard to believe a licensed plumber would actually install a mop sink that close to an electrical panel. It must have been installed by Joe The Plumber: Overtaxed American Patriot.

That didn't take long.

Because thinking that a sink is used for prayers by people of a certain religion means that they think that they are genetically inferior.  Hurrrr DuRrrrrrrrrrR

Personally, I do wonder about the placement of the thing. Its awful close to an electrical panel .... Thats poor planning right there.

THIS. Who in the hell thought this was a good idea, especially with a flexible hose on the end of it that could spray just about any direction it wanted if the water is turned on high enough.

Hey now.  Can't we all stop bickering and just compromise on calling them something like, you know ... morons.

Or assholes.  That would also be acceptable to me.

Nonsense.  Voluntarily moving to TN is prima facie proof that they are, in fact, not smart people.

It's in Tennesee.  As in the Tennessee Valley Authority, aka cheap electricity by way of massive federal spending.  What are the odds they haven't already cut power to the building in protest?

I  assumed that the fact that an investigation was launched into a janitor's closet was prima facie evidence that these folks were common clay of the new West.

If you think that racism is simply thinking another race is "genetically inferior", then you're probably not educated enough to contribute to this conversation.

Mop is code for Muslim

Both made in a foreign country.
Both have lots of cloth/fabric on one end.
People tend to avoid an area when one is spotted.
Most Americans don't know great details about either one.
