    TN lawmakers confuse mop sink for Muslim foot-washing sink

    NASHVILLE — Sometimes a mop sink is just a mop sink.

    Building managers and legislative staffers have sought to reassure some concerned Tennessee lawmakers that recent renovations at the state Capitol did not install special facilities for Muslims to wash their feet before praying.

    “I confirmed with the facility administrator for the State Capitol Complex that the floor-level sink installed in the men’s restroom outside the House Chamber is for housekeeping use,” Legislative Administration Director Connie Ridley wrote in an email. “It is, in layman’s terms, a mop sink.”

    Some of them may have never used a mop before so it would appear foreign to them.

    That is what happens when you raise a child who have never touched a mop, broom or shovel.

    It's also what happens when you become so paranoid and afraid that even someone washing their feet strikes you as something to be concerned over.

    I'm confused, even if it had been a Muslim foot washing sink, what's the problem?

    Yeah, I saw this earlier today...suspect those who originated the question haven't used one before.

    ps. But of more concern in the photo the mop sink is within 36" of the breaker panel on the right. This is a violation of both the plumbing and electrical code...in a government building no less...

    Good catch. I went back and looked at the pic and you are right. But maybe that was intended to catch some less observant Muslim to be washing his feet and touch the panel....lol

    You are right on that one. Here in Texas, it is 6 feet. But we are talking about Tennessee here.
