Public Swimming Pools are not for Religious Usage

Reader comment on item: Muslim Hours at Municipal Swimming Pools in the West

Submitted by Mara Chalav (United States), Jan 6, 2009 at 09:51

There is no reason for public swimming pools to be segregated according to the wishes of various religious groups (such as for male Islams and a separate one for female Islams). There are better uses for our tax dollars rather than for support of such pools. The swimming pools are intended to be used by mixed (sexes) and common swim-wear. If Islamic people wish to swim in pools where they extend their version of 'modesty', they should pay for construction of such pools themselves!

Tax dollars cannot back such perverted usage!
