Silly Jesus: Satanic_Hamster: But don't you dare call them racist.

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


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.

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.

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

alienated: theknuckler_33: what_now: What ire it was a foot bath for Muslims? I don't understand why that would be such a terrible thing?

Should there be a chapel in the state house?

washing feet aint a chapel, its basic  hygeine.


...that people do in their shower at home. For goodness sakes, it would be even more weird if foot-washing facilities were added to state capitols in the name of 'basic hygiene'. Who the fark goes to the state house and says to themselves "damn, I really need to wash my feet right now!".

Krymson Tyde: That's Lulu Roman. Haven't you ever seen Hee Haw, you philistine?


I recognized Lulu right off the bat. I do love seeing the word 'philistine' associated with anyone not culturally aware of  the entertainment relevance of a television classic such as 'Hee Haw'. I found your use of the term both refreshing and enjoyable. I shall say, 'Roll Tide' on your behalf... and as an LSU fan, that means you really did brighten my Fark experience.

Your jib, I like the cut of it.

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.

iron_city_ap: I like the part about muslims being worried about a bill that makes it illegal for them to obstain (sp) from drinking alchohol.


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.

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.
