A decision by retail giant Lowe's Home Improvement to pull ads from a reality show about American Muslims following protests from an evangelical Christian group has sparked criticism and calls for a boycott against the chain.
The retailer stopped advertising on TLC's "All-American Muslim" after a conservative group known as the Florida Family Association complained, saying the program was "propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda's clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values."
The show premiered last month and chronicles the lives of five families from Dearborn, Mich., a Detroit suburb with a large Muslim and Arab-American population.

The funny part of it all is that the people on that show are about as Muslim as GBM is Christian. They adhere to virtually none of the teachings of Islam. I would imagine that devout Muslims are the ones most upset by that show since it presents their religion in a manner that is not indicative of their true practices.

Can we start a boycott of the Florida Family Association?

Interestingly, the Florida Family Associations website has been hacked and is currently not working. I do not support their idiocy but hacking and crashing their website is no more right than their words.

I'm glad that someone is speaking out against extremists who hijack their religion for their own sinister agenda.
