The ACLU has been very busy lately. They sued the city of Slidell, La. over a portrait of Jesus hanging on the wall of a courthouse lobby. It is apparent that Jesus, well no, it’s not even Jesus, it is a picture of Jesus. A picture of Jesus is to the ACLU what daylight is to a vampire for crying out loud.
So when it comes to the subject of foot-baths for Muslims’ use before prayer, five times a day, you would think the ACLU would be all over that too! But you’d be wrong.
In fact, the Muslim group that was considering getting these foot-baths for their believers anticipated the ACLU would either sue them or the school over using public money that they were prepared to fund the $25,000 ‘project’ with private funds. But when they found out that the ACLU would represent them, they decided to have taxpayers buy them instead.
Muslims are required to wash body parts, including feet, up to five times daily before prayers. University officials say the floor-level wash basins are needed because some students at the 8,600-student campus wash their feet in the sinks.
A lesson on the subject of character from the “Religion of Peace”?
The public accommodation as far as I can tell is the fact that these ‘foot-baths’ are for prayer purposes. They’re sure not for hygiene. Prayer and the sinks that go with it are OK? A picture is not? How come I can Google all kinds of pictures of Jesus but not one picture of a Muslim foot-bath?
The ACLU has not only been busy, but they also have apparently taken sides. For them its political though, not religious. This issue is just a ride on the vehicle of chance to advance their contrary agenda. What’s important to note however is the fact that now they can not avoid showing themselves for the leftist anti-American bunch that they are. Even to the cool-aide drinkers out there. The ACLU is still a pig with lipstick. And the Muslims in Dearbornistan are what they are.
