I don't know about preventing it from responding to mouse clicks, but
you can move the clock to another location in the panel or remove it
completely.  The clock applet may be locked in place - to unlock it
right click on the clock and select unlock.

Once the clock is unlocked you can remove it by right clicking and
selecting "remove from panel".  To move the clock, click and hold the
middle mouse button on the clock and move the mouse left or right
until the clock is in the desired position.

If you want to add the clock back later you can right click on an
empty area of the panel and select "Add to panel", then "Accessories",
and finally "Clock".

Yes, this is a Gnome thing.  If you are interested in learning more try:
