Been a long time since we rapped at you, we know, light posting lately on account of finals, deadlines, holidays.
Please enjoy this item from the Huffington Post:
Lowe's, the national hardware chain, has pulled commercials from future episodes of "All-American Muslim," a TLC reality-TV show, after protests by Christian groups.
The Florida Family Association, a Tampa Bay group, has led a campaign urging companies to pull ads on "All-American Muslim."
"'All-American Muslim' is propaganda clearly designed to counter legitimate and present-day concerns about many Muslims who are advancing Islamic fundamentalism and Sharia law," the Florida group asserts in a letter it asks members to send to TLC advertisers.
The show profiles only Muslims that appear to be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to the liberties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish," the FFA's letter continues.

The “Florida Family Association” is one guy and a website and a lot of time on his hands. New York Times:
“During that session, Ms. Thornton encountered the man who had manufactured the entire controversy: David Caton. An accountant turned rock-club owner, the author of a book about his pornography addiction, Mr. Caton had become a born-again Christian and the founder and sole employee of a fundamentalist group* called the Florida Family Association.
This dispute, otherwise a mere footnote in Americaâ€™s culture wars, matters very much right now. This same David Caton is the person who has maligned the television show ‘All-American Muslim’…”
* Can’t be called a “group” if there is only one member!
Thanks for the comment. This guy definitely wins the troll prize.
I remember taking a class where we discussed how we form our beliefs and why do people believe things despite having evidence to the contrary.
Sounds like an interesting class.
lol. I suppose one man really can make a difference.
