Enough!

The founders of our country risked everything to establish a society governed by the rule of law and to enable themselves to escape religious persecution. Their intentions were not to separate church and state, which is no where in our Constitution, but that government should not sanction the establishment of any single religion over others.

What does it say to you that the Kansas City International Airport has added several foot basins in restrooms to enable Muslim cab drivers to wash their feet for daily Islamic prayers? In western civilization, which is where we are for the moment, restroom basins are provided for hygiene and not religious rituals. I find this highly offensive.

I believe that our founders would be disappointed in America today. Today in America the ACLU sues the Boy Scouts, a private organization, because they require their members to recognize a higher power. Today in America the ten commandments are not allowed in many government buildings. Today in America over zealous government bodies are seizing private property, one of the fundamentals of free society, for economic profit. Today in America Muslim cab drivers are allowed to deny service to patrons with animals or alcohol and Muslim cashiers are allowed to not handle pork products at the checkout counter.

This post is biased against the favoritism being given to Muslims in this country - since it appears to be the politically correct flavor of the month. In an attempt to not offend anyone or deny anyone their religious freedoms, we are slowly loosing our own identity.

You know the old saying that if you drop a frog in boiling water he will jump out, but if you slowly increase the temperature from cool to boiling the frog will boil to death without realizing it? Well, the temperature is rising...

##That's my opinion##

Right On! Spot On!

This should be a wake up call to not be a frog. We are known in the world as a great melting pot. Let's not be a boiling pot of hot water. Get out there and get involved.

Nothing against Islam or any specific religion, but as Lucid points out we need to stop allowing every small group change our fundamental way of society to meet their needs.

Hold on here for just one minute... Let me see if understand this correctly...Let me get this straight now, because this is kind of heard to believe. Do you mean to tell me that .when I enter a restroom at the Kansas City airport I have to be subjected to a bunch of stinking, smelly dirty cab drivers washing their filthy stinking, smelly feet in the same room that I'm trying to take a leak

I don't get it..To me ..and correct me if I'm wrong, but this is a clear case of government encouraging a specific religion, a violation of the first Amendment. The separation of church and state..Where is the ACLU when we need them?

Why they don't accommodate Christians? Maybe I want to give confession before I get on a plane?
On second thought, that may not be a good idea after all.
