Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Freedom Is Indivisible

Since freedom is indivisible, I hold that people have the right to do what they want with their property and thus that Muslims have the right to build a mosque within a few blocks of the once and future World Trade Center.

Since freedom is indivisible, I hold that people have the right to do what they want with their property and thus that Greg Gutfeld has the right to open a gay bar nearby.

After all, if the nontraditional lifestyles associated with gay bars are dubious, what better place than near an organization that might persuade people otherwise?

And futhermore…

This is as good a place as any to mention that one of the supposed absurdities of intolerant Muslims isn't completely absurd. According to Mark Steyn, one of the complaints of Sayyid Qutb (a founder of school of thought that held Islam should overthrow Western civilization as soon as possible) was against the song “Baby, It's Cold Outside.” For some reason, Mark Steyn thought that absurd.

I disagree. Have you seen some of the lyrics? It's The Christmas Date Rape Song. I can't understand why it's considered innocuous.
