Ground Zero mosque may have some company

In the name of tolerance, Greg Gutfeld, the host of Red Eye on Fox News Channel is raising money to open a gay bar right next to the future Cordoba House mosque. And not just any gay bar, but a gay bar that is open to gay Islamic men:

I'm announcing tonight, that I am planning to build and open the first gay bar that caters not only to the west, but also Islamic gay men. To best express my sincere desire for dialogue, the bar will be situated next to the mosque Park51, in an available commercial space.

This is not a joke. I've already spoken to a number of investors, who have pledged their support in this bipartisan bid for understanding and tolerance.

As you know, the Muslim faith doesn't look kindly upon homosexuality, which is why I'm building this bar. It is an effort to break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world.

The goal, however, is not simply to open a typical gay bar, but one friendly to men of Islamic faith. An entire floor, for example, will feature non-alcoholic drinks, since booze is forbidden by the faith. The bar will be open all day and night, to accommodate men who would rather keep their sexuality under wraps - but still want to dance.

Bottom line: I hope that the mosque owners will be as open to the bar, as I am to the new mosque. After all, the belief driving them to open up their center near Ground Zero, is no different than mine.

My place, however, will have better music.

Greg reiterated at the end of his post that he is being "dead serious" about this venture.

The anger and frustration about this mosque has been building over the past few weeks and was close to boiling over, and with just one post, Gutfeld has helped to diffuse the situation.

LOL. Tolerance is a two-way street. (And make of THAT metaphor what you will - what I'm meaning by it is that if the folks building this mosque want to be tolerated, then they're going to have to show some tolerance themselves.)

Only thing better is if they also served BBQ pork sandwiches...

I'm with Steven Green, who said that he's all for the mosque as long as they agree to perform muslim gay marriages.

Heck, they could satisfy the more traditional muslims too and hold a stoning immediately after the marriage...

Just a thought.

Opinionated Vogon:

When I first heard of the planned mosque I thought the same thing. They want to use our freedoms against us, lets turn the tables. Lets have a tittie bar on one side, a draw Mohammed Art Gallery on the other, and across the street a Honey Baked ham store. Let them enjoy the pork flavored aroma of freedom!

I also came up with a few names for the tittie bar, but I'm sure others will want to make suggestions. My partial list:

Allah bout Ass
Sexy Sharia Strip Club
Boobs of Badr
Tawaf of Twats
Jihad Jiggles
Fatwa Fannies
Pussy of the Prophet - Gimme a Fatwa Den I Mecca You Feel Good

All in good fun, natch! Remember, be tolerant!

Investors have every to flush their money down a toilet, it isn't illegal after all. They can also invest in such an establishment because they feel like it. One might even argue that they have a right to build a gay bar where ever they want to.

I might include a blast barrier or two into the building plan though...

Getting stoned will be legal in one establishment and what you do to the fairer sex in the other. You got to love the barbaric ironie's.

Maybe there could be a pantomime show across the street depicting the proper way to stone a Woman. Would be great for visitor's and passerby to see one true facet of islam.

They could even use the flute to announce the call to prayer.

.... I'm announcing tonight, that I am planning to build and open the first "gay" bar that caters not only to the west, but also Islamic "gay" um "men" ....

I've spent much of the past almost fifty years living traveling in the Islamic world including in North Africa, Arabia, The Persian Gulf and throughout South and South-East Asia and can state categorically that if - in the demographic, 'Islamic "gay" men' - Mr Gutfeld includes every middle eastern/Arab male Islamic who practices the buggery of his fellows (in addition, in pretty much every instance, the buggery of the neighborhood goats, of his sisters and of every passing little boy) Mr Gutfeld's (Mohammud's Mattress Munchers'?) Bar will need to occupy about one hundred floors of a building covering every one of the former Trade Canter's sixteen acres.

And serve Pedophilager On Tap?

#9, Posted by Sir Toby Belch, says Oscar Mayer should bless the mosque site with 1000lbs of hickory-smoked bacon, to let the mosque be built on a strong foundation.

And I say Sir Toby's spot on and not only endorse his suggestion but reckon we should start a fund to raise the dough to buy the bacon!

Greg's idea is absolutely the funniest thing I have heard in years. This is totally hysterical. There is no end to the spin you can create from an imaginative romp through Greg's notorious notion. I'm practically peeing myself from laughing so hard. If nothing else, this is truly a great laugh!
