[Religious Peedom] Don’t Shit On Mecca

Posted by Lex Fear on August 23, 2006

I was sent this link to BBC News this morning:

“Facilities in a prison are being built so Muslim inmates do not have to face Mecca while sitting on the toilet…

“…Faith leaders had told prison bosses it was unacceptable for Muslim inmates to face Mecca while using the toilet…

…The refurbishment has been carried out with due consideration for all faiths”, a Home Office spokeswoman said…”

If you ask me this is just a waste of your “freedom of religious expression”. If it was me I’d be milking it for all I could get-

“Sorry, these bars are facing the wrong way to my spiritual homeland, please move them”
“My faith calls for me to do everything wearing no clothes for at least 5 hours a day”
“Allah gets offended if I don’t eat enough Ben & Jerry’s”
“My faith requires me to attend a cinema to pray at least twice a week”

Still, we have to give them credit for toilets, I don’t think anyone could top that idea! So is this asymmetrical warfare against plumbers or what?

There’s too many jokes in this and I’ve gone for the obvious, can you do any better? Leave a comment, that goes for all you lurkers…
