The Detroit News reports from Dearborn on the University of Michigan’s plan to spend $25,000 for the installation of footbaths on campus: “Muslims won’t fund footbaths.” The article reports that “Muslim leaders in metro Detroit have decided not to raise private money to pay for two footbaths” on campus. For them, it clearly seems less to be about religious observance than about the submission of public authorities to their observance. If you’ve followed our series on wudu you know, to paraphrase Creedence Clearwater Revival, that there’s a bad dhimmitude rising.
The Detroit News also reports that the ACLU finds nothing constitutionally objectionable in public support for the footbaths. Just in case you were wondering, Detroit ACLU director Kary Moss explains:
“We view it as an attempt to deal with a problem, not an attempt to make it easier for Muslims to pray,” said Moss, who likened the plan to paying for added police during religious events with huge turnouts.
“There’s no intent to promote religion.”
The unholy alliance between the radical left and radical Islam continues unabated.
