What? Who? Why? confused
Is that an acceptable practice? Can you ask one of them why they do that? I am simply amazed. What, in their culture, says that is socially acceptable?
That's just fuckin' weird. I can understand the whole prayer thing, but......!!!!!!!! WTF??????

Don't stalls have doors? How do you know he's not playing the spoons?

Ok, You are definately confused about something with the "Sex ed" reference. In my sex Ed Class, they definately stressed that abstinence was the only way to give a 100% guarantee that you would not cause a pregnency or spread any STD's. Abstinence is a form of birth control afterall. Schools can not teach an Abstinence only Sex Ed class - that does not mean they can not teach abstinence in a Sex Ed class.

The "Thoery of Creationism" is a term that doesn't exist, since Creatinism isn't a theory. Creationism (like evolution which it is so often compared to) would be a Concept, that is supported by various Theories (Such as Darwin's theory). The reason Creationism isn't taught, is because there isn't a Theory that supports Creationism. The reason there aren't any Thoeries is that the Hypotheses which would be the foundation of the Theories cannot be repeated or tested, so they can not be a hypothesis and are discarded.

You might want to look into that.

If you read my original post, you would already see the answer to that question.

Interesting signature you got there Off-Your-Crib. Did you know Oscar Wilde led a double life that involved little boys?

Precisely why a lot of us don't use the restrooms. We take our "smoke breaks " (I don't smoke, but if they get a break...) and walk down to the warehouse.

I don't want to "look into" any part of this. I'm still relatively "new" here (5 months) and I don't want the "crusader" label. There are certainly members of HR who are "looking into" a politically correct way to stop it without having to draft a "no masturbation in the bathroom" policy.

You shouldn't have to tell people that washing their feet in the same sink you use to rinse out your coffee mug is "bad." mad mad mad

I can't seem to find further evidence to support your claim. But if it is true, then my signature will change. For the time being, I shall change it to something more appropiate. Thanks for the potential heads up.

If that is not the truth, I don't know what is.

I do not sense and I do not see any respect from the same group you mentioned about others beliefs.

Meanwhile, this group is trying to use our country's judicial system to force American citizens of all religious faiths, to respect their views, wishes and commands while subsequent court decisions in their favor, infringe on everyone else’s beliefs. These so called rights that come from these decisions destroy our very human rights and the proper values this free country was founded on.

NY Madman, I don't agree with everything you write but in most cases I do and I agree with you here.

PNUTMNM, I enjoy your comments on this issue as well.

Chalk one up in the win column for the Constitution.
Virginia Military Institute supper-time prayers are unconstitutional. Read about it here.

I meant "look into" the laws...
If you're into looking at "other things", well... eek

I'd just look at the local laws, and if you find something that applies, then just leave a copy in an inbox of someone in the HR department. Simple, effective, and no backlash against you.
