Why Are We Constructing Places of Worship for Muslims in Our Airports?

From "Airport adds foot basins for Muslim cabbies" posted 4/28/07 at WorldNetDaily.com.

The Kansas City International Airport has added several foot-washing basins in restrooms to accommodate a growing number of Muslim taxicab drivers who requested the facilities to prepare for daily Islamic prayer, WND has learned.

The move concerns airport police who worry about Middle Eastern men loitering inside the building. After 9/11, the airport beefed up its police force to help prevent terrorist attacks.

"Why are we constructing places of worship for them inside our airports?" said an airport official who requested anonymity. "Why are we catering to their rituals? We don't do it for any other religion."

Why indeed?

This is very interesting when contrasted with the fact that citizens of Muslim countries can be killed for converting to Christianity.

On a different note, one might think the ACLU could take a little time out from scrubbing our public square clean of every last vestige of our Christian heritage to devote a little time to something like this...
