My apologies

I was supposed to write today, and it may still happen, but I’ll confess, I’m being the mom right now. It’s a great thing, and I haven’t much more time, so perhaps you can be patient.

Also, and this is a great bit amazing also, Greg Gutfeld is going to be on Glen Beck in about 15 minutes to lay out his plan for a gay bar next to the mosque planned for Ground Zero.

That’s where I’ll be watching.


  1. Good grief. Greg Gutfield may have a wicked sense of humor, but I’m not seeing the fun in this; why go out of your way to insult people? Not even the people he’s angry with, by the way, just random targets.

    I may send fan letters to Fareed Zakaria and New York Mayor Bloomberg.

  2. “Why go out of your way to insult people,” indeed. If the irony is lost on you, it’s bad news for the rest of America.

  3. The Lorax says:

    I’m just reading this Duke University study about how Mosques decrease threats of terrorism in the area.

  4. Right. Because surely they plan to hit the same place twice.

  5. It would be funny if there weren’t already a gay bar around the corner, and a regular bar on the same block, and a strip club a block away, and hot dog vendors right there with their pork products …

    (The strip club is actually closer to Ground Zero than the community center would be; I guess pasties are less offensive to the memory of 9/11 than burqas.)

  6. Randy in Richmond says:

    You’re kidding or being sarcastic, right ? ” Go out of your way to insult people” ? You should restudy this issue starting about nine years ago. Or you can go back further into history–hundreds of years–and their are examples of Islam building mosques near or on churches in conquered lands. In fact most major religions have done that.

    And I don’t know Greg Gutfield’s orientation, but perhaps he is simply standing up for convictions that are meaningful to him. Those on the left best take a very close look at Islam and their day to day beliefs because much of what the left espouses is in direct, if not huge, conflict with these beliefs.

  7. Randy in Richmond says:

    My memory is that it wasn’t drunks or strippers or venders that deliberately murdered 3,000 people in the name of Allah.

  8. Randy, nor was it the moderate Muslims of the Cordoba Initiative who despise radical violence and Islamist intolerance.

  9. I called it! Ok, I didn’t write it here first, but I absolutely predicted someone would defend those magical “moderate” Muslims.

    Then let’s say it’s cool to build the mosque as long as everyone signs a moderate card check at the door. Heck, maybe they’ll even frequent Gutfeld’s bar on occasion.

  10. Do you propose the same kind of cred-check at all the mosques in Manhattan? And maybe while we’re at it, we should check the Catholics in Ireland (they have a history, you know!) and the Evangelicals in Michigan (that’s where McVeigh was from), and the …

  11. Randy in Richmond says:

    Perhaps someone can tell me where there is an existing Muslim facility, such as the one proposed in Manhatten, where Jews, Christians, gays, women, alcoholics, prostitutes, druggies, and the like can worship equally and participate in an ongoing manner.

  12. Here’s the clip:

    Folkbum, I’d settle for just the mosque next to Ground Zero. Heck, there’s no need to inconvenience all those other people. And if this blog has taught me anything, it’s that life isn’t fair.

  13. Randy in Richmond says:

    McVeigh had issues with the Federal Government: not non-Christians. It was Waco that motivated him-not religion.

    And the simple answer to this whole question is that if those wanting to build where they propose
    were to follow their own announced convictions–they would build elsewhere.
