Do Conservatives Consider This “Gentlemen’s Club” Hallowed Ground?

Conservatives opposing the proposed Islamic community center in New York argue that it would be wrong to place the “Ground Zero Mosque” on “hallowed ground” near ground zero. “Ground Zero Mosque” is an inaccurate, and intentionally inflammatory, description and these pictures certainly question the Republican concept of “hallowed ground.”

The pictures show what is actually in the neighborhood surrounding Ground Zero. It hardly appears to be any sort of “hallowed ground,” including everything from the Gentlemen’s Club pictured above to a McDonald’s. Now maybe if we’re speaking of the Irish some would consider the item below to be hallowed ground, but there is clearly nothing hallowed about the area which would prevent the building of an Islamic cultural center or Mosque.
