    I know, right? What makes them think they should get their own foot washing station?

    You asked what the "problem" was. I guess there's none if you think state buildings should accommodate all those things.
    I have no problem with any of those things, as long as all religious items are granted equal privilege.

    But if you think any of them should be forbidden or removed, then you should think all of them should be.
    I think religion should be treated equally under the law. But as I said, my guess is you can find the word "God" in at least one place in the capitol. If I'm wrong, so be it, it's complete conjecture on my part. But I'd be surprised if I was wrong.

    So, what I think is irrelevant to whether or not you should "concede" the point
    Not at all. What you think is entirely important as to whether I concede the point.

    But to answer the question, I think none of those things should be present in a state building.
    Then, assuming the lawmakers agree to the same mindset we both have, point conceded.

    Well, I guess that, if those Tennessee congress critters want to wash their feet in a mop sink, I say "Have at it". LOL.

    I didn't know cleaning floors was a religious practice. My mistake.

    Oh, so you missed out on the entire context of what I said. Well, hey, it's Deuce. I'm used to it.

    Oy vey. Maybe one day you'll learn to read.

    Next time I'll put bold flashing red text saying "THIS POST, LIKE MOST IN THIS THREAD, IS MAKING FUN OF THE GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT A FLOOR SINK WAS A RELIGIOUS ITEM. IF YOU ARE NOT ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY NOT BE OFFENDED."

    Nice spin, ducky, but you screwed the pooch. I was not saying what you thought, and you could have figured it out had you simply, you know, bothered to read. How many times now have I pointed out your problems in this regard? Quite a few, yet you continue to have the problem. Well, I guess you have to want to improve in order to do it.

    It is a device used to clean feet

    A regular sink can be used, a plastic tub may be usedf


    It is not a religous device, anymore then your car being used to get you to church is


    It is not how a muslim gets their feet cleaned before prayer but that the feet are cleaned before prayer. It has to have clean water, and i expect soap avaliable. Which means your bathtub would be a muslim religous device if you consider a foot washing basin to be religious
