The Mickey Mosque Club
"You want to build a what next to my mosque?"
There has been a lot of talk regarding the proposed Mosque near the former site of the World Trade center. Conservatives strongly believe that building anything that is related to the people who committed these atrocities should even exist near the location. Liberals cite the freedom of religion and also the contradiction that in the same area we have strip clubs, fast food establishment and gambling houses. In this blogger’s honest opinion I sadly have to agree with the liberals. We live in a free country, where people are entitled to believe and build whatever they choose as long as they don’t cause physical harm to others. That’s why I’m proposing this interesting concept, I like art I have always been a fan of art. Granted, not too crazy about religious imagery being painted in cow poop but I respect the freedom of the artist even though I think they may be a talentless douche. I believe, to express my own freedom of speech I would like to paint a murial at the east side of the proposed mosque. Why the east side? Well, I think the lighting would be much better. My idea is to promote tolerance, by painting a picture of Muhammad (the prophet of the Muslim religion, not the dude who sells Falafel down the street) I think, since it is New York after all, that he should wear a Yankees jersey while making out with a very effeminate yet looking burly blonde. The picture isn’t hurting anyone, and as far as art goes it would seem pretty tame. I would also like to add the caption, “Allah loves me for who I am”. How could any progressive be against the arts? I mean, it’s a harmless picture and it’s nothing compared to some of the artwork that has been available in New York City.
Speaking of arts, New York City also allows street performers. Hey, if a guy can play his guitar in his underwear in Times Square, I figured I could do a little bit of showcasing myself. I have always been a fan of Broadway, however I doubt I will be on stage any time soon but I would like to make it in New York. So, to promote my new musical “The Prophet Phollies.” I would dress up like Moses, holding the Fifteen Commandments (the third tablet was accidentally broken by Muhammad) while singing “Muhammad, come out and play”
Freedom of speech, expression and religion is great. Let them build their mosque, but also let me express my own freedoms by allowing me to paint hot man on man action with Muhammad and letting me dress up like Moses in front of the Mosque (on public grounds). If I also happen to dress like a belly dancer on Halloween and ask for candy, I would hope that the Imam would be kind enough to participate and give me some candy… or Turkish delights. When Christmas comes around, I would also hope that in the spirit of the season the Imam would kindly open his doors to allow for Christmas carolers to wish them a Merry Christmas… after all in the words of Keith Olbermann “This is America, damn it!”
