‘If you won’t consider the sensibilities of Muslims, you’re not going to build dialog.’

The official Twitter account of the Park51 Lower Manhattan community-center project — colloquially known as the Ground Zero Mosque — has told Fox News’s Greg Gutfeld, in response to his proposal to open a bar catering to gay Muslims near the site:
