Bridge Building 101: Diversity and Tolerance at the Ground Zero Mosque
This is Brilliant.
For the first time in my Life... I can say these words:
I support the building of a Gay Bar... Wholeheartedly.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf has been trying to pass off the building of the Cordoba House Mosque abomination, it's proximity to Ground Zero, and it's 9/11 2011 10 Year Anniversary start... as a positive thing.. here's his spin:
The truth about the 'mosque': The leader of proposed Muslim center near Ground Zero defends his plan

It's about RESPECT... that's why they're doing it..
Mosque madness at Ground Zero
...according to the mosque site developer Sharif El-Gamal there will be:
“a September 11th memorial and contemplation space” within the building.
Doesn’t that make you feel warm, fuzzy and more tolerant towards Cordoba House?
So with tolerance in mind and to refresh the memories of those city leaders who approved this project, I have a suggestion for the Imam and Mr. El-Gamal— how about carving into the marble foyer walls, the names of all 2,750 people who died just two blocks north?
Then, how about running continuous 9/11 television footage on HUGE screens built into the marble. (I presume for $100 million the foyer walls will be marble.)
Wait there is more — how about lining all the hallways, including the prayer space with a permanent display of 9/11 photos.
How about dedicating the entire Cordoba House to September 11, 2001 with these words carved over the front door:
“NEVER will hate be taught in this mosque and never again in any mosque on the planet.”

It's not about anything but gloating & conquest... & they're not budging...
They want their Trophy.
Offer Rejected to Move Mosque Away From Ground Zero to State Property
Published August 11, 2010 | FoxNews.com
The developers of the so-called Ground Zero mosque rejected New York Gov. David Paterson's offer to provide state property if the project is moved farther away from where the twin towers once stood.
In an effort to appease disputing parties, Paterson had said Tuesday that he would provide state help to the group sponsoring the Cordoba House if the developers opt to move it elsewhere.
"Frankly, if the sponsors were looking for property anywhere at a distance that would be such that it would accommodate a better feeling among the people who are frustrated, I would look into trying to provide them with the state property they would need," Paterson said.
While Paterson has "no objection" to the mosque being built a few blocks away from Ground Zero, he said he’s "very sensitive to the desire of those who are adamant against it to see something else worked out."
But Paterson said Wednesday that the developers told his office they weren't interested in moving...

Greg Gutfeld To Open A Gay Bar Next To Ground Zero Mosque To Cater To “Islamic Gay Men”
by Jon Bershad | 8:23 pm, August 9th, 2010
No, this is not a joke.
In fact, it is instead one of the most brilliant pieces of provocation in recent years.
Greg Gutfeld from Fox News’ Red Eye announced today via his blog that he is actively speaking to investors and plans on opening a gay bar next to the controversial mosque being built near Ground Zero in New York.
To make matters worse (better?) the bar will be specifically designed to cater to homosexuals of the Islamic faith.
God, this is going to be an exciting block.
GAY BAR Next to Ground Zero Mosque!!!
Here’s Gutfeld’s entire post which he will expand upon during tonight’s Red Eye:
“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.”
