The Boom Boom Room? Greg Gutfeld Proposes Gay Bar Next Door to Ground Zero Mosque
Demonstrating the ingenuity of a great American, Fox News Channel host Greg Gutfeld has proposed a way to help break down barriers and increase understanding with the Muslims who wish to build a mosque just steps from Ground Zero:
A gay bar.
Gutfeld, the former Huffington Post guest blogger and current host of FNC's late night cult hit Red Eye, made the proposal during Monday night's "Gregalogue," a segment in which Gutfeld takes an intriguing look at the events of the day and offers a sarcastic, if not sane, perspective.
"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," Gutfeld offered.
" I'm announcing tonight," he continued, "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."
Gutfeld went on to describe the fact that the Muslim faith does not look kindly upon homosexuality, and that his new venture "Is an effort to break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world."
He closed by stating that his place "Will have better music," and that anyone serious about investment opportunities should contact him at dailygut.com.
My personal suggestions for names? As written above in the title of this post, "The Boom Boom Room," or maybe "Mohamed's Secret." I'd love to hear your suggestions...
