Let's make sure there's no shortage of fun!

While I haven't had as much time as I might like to sound off on the issues of the day (and don't really have the time now), I want to take the time to say this:


No, really. I cannot stress the importance of such, um, inclusion, especially near the place where this country was attacked on September 11, 2001.

This is America.

However, I am bit taken aback by the idea that religious bigotry might stand in the way.

It seems that if there is to be a mosque nearby, then there can be no gay bar, because apparently no bars are allowed near religious establishments:

New York state issues liquor licenses, not Bloomberg's City Hall. And no bar can be within 200 feet of a place of worship. Will the state rule the Islamic site is such a facility? Or a mere "cultural center"? As it is, there's no shortage of watering holes downtown...one can certainly unfurl a gay pride rainbow flag with a crescent superimposed...
As Glenn says, "Fun Galore!"

(I'm all for that.)

So, it occurs to me if there can't be a gay bar next door because of religious issues surrounding alcohol, then how about a gay bathhouse? (New York only has three....)

It's always good to have a backup plan.

Anyway, I just wanted to toss the idea out (or would that be slip the idea in?). And even though I agree that there's no "shortage of deliberate provocations in today's America," I see no harm in adding my suggestion to the surplus.

MORE: Out out, damned but!

Why can't there be more loopholes in the Koran?

That's almost as many as they have in St. Louis, the sexual deviancy capital of...the part of Missouri it's in.

I wish I had thought of it, but the
'Allahu Ak Bar '
has a nice ring to it.

Ramadan Kareem, y'all.

Apparently it's not going to serve alcohol, but it's going to have 72 virgin drinks.

It has to be named Outfidels!
