The ultimate irony.

The ultimate irony - using freedom of expression to try and limit other people's freedom of expression.

I was sent the following piece by Nichola Romney of

It’s one of the funnies things I’ve read all week and it’s spot on:

I am truly perplexed  that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built  in Auckland.

I think it  should be the goal of every New Zealander to be  tolerant.

Thus the Mosque  should be allowed, in an effort to promote  tolerance.

That is why I also  propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque,  thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque.

We could  call one of the clubs, which would be gay, “The Turban Cowboy  “,  and the other a topless bar called “You Mecca Me  Hot.”

Next door should  be a butcher’s shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that  an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called “Iraq o’ Ribs.”

Across the  street there could be a lingerie store called “Victoria Keeps  Nothing Secret”, with sexy mannequins in the window modeling the  goods.

Next door to the  lingerie shop there would be room for an adult sex toy shop: “Koranal Knowledge “; its name in flashing neon lights, and on the  other side a liquor store called  “Morehammered.”

All of this would  encourage the Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they demand of  us, so the mosque problem would be solved.

If you agree  with promoting tolerance, and you think this is a good plan,  please pass it on…

(I do not know who the original author is but if I find out, I will credit them here)

Tolerance is a two-way street. Many people seem to forget that.

Love it.
