    Freedom to build...

    Freedom to express provocative ideas

    http://www.davidyerushalmi.com/uploads/newsapps/app_371281397439.pdf

    I wonder what kind of reaction this provocative ad, which will run on NYC buses through September, will bring.

    Here's some more sauce.

    Greg Gutfeld is planning to build a gay bar next to the mosque that will specifically cater to Islamic gay men. His reason? Bridge building, baby.

    That's nothing, Whodey plans to open a pig farm across the street from the mosque entitled, "We are Gods creatures too".

    I can't speak for Muslims, but I'd imagine they might respond something like...

    "That's why we don't kill and eat you."

    Feel free to give him some more ideas for names.

    The "fundament" in fundamental (look it up)

    But who are the fundamentalists here? Who is displaying intolerance and bigotry? Is this a fundamentalist mosque or are you prepared to be this offensive against any of the many millions of Muslims throughout the world?

    When any group is allowed to be stigmatized and openly insulted, then you have to ask who will be next. That is the lesson from Nazism: "When they came for the Jews I did nothing, because I was not a Jew....."

    Are you referring to the ads referenced in the OP or this game choosing a name for the center.

    If the latter, relax, we're just joking around.

    If the former, people have the right to be offended by a large Mosque being built near Ground Zero if they like; and they have the right to express their offense. What they don't have the right to do is to discriminate against people because of their religion.
