Yeah this is a stupid fauxrage but this is FNC who sees Shariah at every corner. I said it yesterday but I think some people sincerely want to be afraid of Muslims and their customs. They don’t want to get over their bigotries.

The local JCC where Lord Of The Pies go swimming every week also has times set aside for “women only” and for “men only” but nobody is freaking out about that.

“Just for serenity, to have mother-daughter experience,” she said, adding, “a pool isn’t a bar. It isn’t for singles.”

Anne Gould, a 59-year-old Columbia resident who also supports the women-only swimming times, said, “There are times you want to be with just women.” […]

I get so tired of right-wing Christian busybodies, who are prying into our personal sex lives on a non-stop basis, whining about how Mooslims will impose SHARIA!@11213235321Q;451POL7-09
