In order to accommodate passengers who are likely to purchase tickets for the new Emirates Airlines non-stop flights from Orlando to Dubai, the Orlando International Airport will be opening a “Reflection Room” in a few weeks. With Muslims in mind, the $250,000 space will give people the ability to wash themselves before praying, a place to put their shoes if they must take them off, and directional signs so they can make sure they’re facing Mecca.
To be clear, anyone can use this space. Even atheists who just want some quiet space before a flight. But since the accommodations are directed at Muslims, some conservative Christians are furious.
