Im curious to know what the right-wing anti-mosqueteers response will be to this proposal (CHT Starchild) to open a gay bar catering specifically to gay Muslims next to the non-Ground-Zero non-mosque.
It puts them in a bit of a bind, I should think. Lately, people whove never given a damn about the rights of gays before have been invoking Islamic homophobia to justify their own Islamophobia. Itll be interesting to see whether the conservatives newfound concern for gays will extend to a support for this latest effort, i.e., whether their anti-Muslim bigotry will be strong enough to overwhelm their usual anti-gay bigotry.
In other words: will the anti-mosqueteers be willing to pass beyond mere lip service, suppress their gag reflex, and swallow a gay bar? (Sorry.)
I reserve the right, however, to remain skeptical about the claim that the bar will have better music than the Islamic center. But then, I really like Islamic music.
