There has been much hulla-boo-hoo about the building of a mosque and an islamic centre (relatively) close to Ground Zero. Which is still nothing more than a hole in the ground, nine years later, yeah, that showed them, didn't it? We are so fucking resilient that Dubai built a big skyscraper, well, actually, they didn't build it, they just gave the money... out of uncovered debit... and we? We didn't even manage to build a damn memorial!

And a lot of people got up in verbal arms about it, blah blah, having that mosque built somehow shows that we caved in to "islamist fascism"...

(incidentally, look up the fuck what fascism means. And if you don't know what it means, then shut the fuck up. Like I stated elsewhere, you are lowering the IQ of the entire fucking street by merely opening your mouth)

.. if we allow "them" to build there. Bull. Shit. It shows strength. It says, "sure, you are part of this country here, but you know what? This country has a set of rules, and that means, be fucking prepared to be offended".

So, while most of the right-wing idiots are merely ranting, one guy at Faux News actually had a brilliant idea that encapsulates the dominance of tolerance over every religious bullshit, and here it is, in his own words.
So, the Muslim investors championing the construction of the new mosque near Ground Zero claim it's all about strengthening the relationship between the Muslim and non-Muslim world.

As an American, I believe they have every right to build the mosque - after all, if they buy the land and they follow the law - who can stop them?
Which is, why, in the spirit of outreach, I've decided to do the same thing.
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.
Build it, Greg! Because tolerance is always the tolerance of people living differently, being different, and as long as they are not hurting anybody (chaps, chains and shackles do not count, if they are worn by all involved), that whole "I am so offended" bit? Goes straight, uh, well, you know what I mean... it goes out of the window.

Build it. And they will cum!

Well, kind of. (unless of course those Crazy Christians all over sudden find themselves in bed with the Crazy Muslims, because, hell, everybody there hates gay people right?).

And hell, if you place has really good music, I'll show up there myself the next time I am in New York. But you better not play ABBA or the Village People.

Or I will blow up your place myself!
