How low can we go? Public urination facilities paid for by tax dollars!

You’re not going to believe the latest in public degradation: public urination facilities known as “pissoirs” and we have our old friend Brad Dacus, President of the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) joining us to tell our listeners what PJI is doing to stop them.  

Several years ago, you might recall, Brad joined us to discuss something most of us had

never heard of before: Same-sex locker and rest room facilities. Since that time, Brad and many others have been fighting the LGBT agenda over open restrooms.

Now we see one city, San Francisco, sink to a new low: public urination facilities. Brad will join us again this week to discuss the legal issue and PJI’s suit against the city in an effort to stop this new demonstration of depravity.  

PJI first reported on February 4 that San Francisco had constructed a semi-circular structure, known as a pissoir, at the corner of Dolores Park. The wall is about 4 feet high and is completely open at the back, with no roof or doors. Men using the hole in the ground are visible to children playing in the park, passersby on the adjacent street, sidewalk and light rail, and to residents overlooking the park. ​

PJI sent a demand letter to the City and County of San Francisco more than two months ago, identifying numerous legal problems with the pissoir.  In response, San Francisco offered no substantive rebuttal but disclosed documents confirming that it spent at least $15,000 on the pissoir.

Brad commented, “San Francisco’s use of tax dollars to promote public urination is not only disgusting; it is also blatantly illegal.  Officials would not and could not allow such a facility to be constructed by private businesses or residents, because it so obviously violates disability access and basic health and safety laws, to name a few.  These officials are not above the law.”    

Join Deacon Mike Manno and his co-host Gina Noll Tuesday at 9 a.m. (Central) on Iowa Catholic Radio 1150 AM; 88.5 & 94.5 FM; and streaming on for a discussion of this and other legal issues of interested to people of faith. The program will re-air at 9 p.m.
