Turning the other cheek
Some news out of London.
Facilities in a prison are being built so Muslim inmates do not have to face Mecca while sitting on the toilet.
The Home Office said two new toilet blocks are being installed as part of a refurbishment at Brixton jail in south London.
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.
I got no problem with making the modifications. However, how does one not face Mecca when using the throne? If one part isn't facing Mecca, then one is? Can someone please enlighten me.
Oh no never mind.
