A Muslim Gay Bar Next to Ground Zero Mosque?

Monday, August 9, 2010

I do have to admit I am curious what our bleeding-heart liberal friends have to say about this. Do they value gay rights or anti-American rights more? Oh the dilemma...

Redeye's Greg Gutfeld:

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.

Update: Greg received a tweet from the Muslim Mosque group asking him to "consider the sensibilities of Muslims" to "build dialogue"! And they're considering the sensibilities of 9/11 victims, New Yorkers and Americans?!!!

He also shares some possible names for the bar as well as some facts: such as they will offer 72 virgin drinks.

I, for one, am fine with a gay bar near a church or mosque, provided it's funded properly and meets normal building standards. For instance, here in Kentucky, we have rules about how close a bar of any sort can be to a school or, I think, a house of worship. We live in a free nation and as long as they meet building code, go for it.

On the other hand, mosques and churches in the area may find some common ground, in not wanting to see a bar built too closely to them. They may even join together to make sure it doesn't happen.

Either way, win/win.

Gay rights over respecting religious convictions for Dan, even when it comes to radical Muslims. Interesting. Or does Dan just want to see more gay bars?
