Lowe’s pulls ads from show supporting muslims

Lowe’s recently pulled it’s advertising from the TLC show All American Muslim. The show follows a Muslim family who lives in Michigan to show people that Muslims are just as American as anyone else and that they are normal  people who still face the prejudices that followed 9/11. A conservative group in Florida called the Florida Family Association complained that the show was “propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values.”  I get very upset when I hear my Christian family members or friends complain about Muslims when the two religions are so very similar.  It seems to me that the Florida Family Association is full of bigots who can’t possibly accept the fact that all Muslims are not America-hating terrorists. A senator in California is calling for legislative action against the company if they don’t issue an apology.  I’m glad not everyone in the U.S. is as close minded as the people in the FFA.  I personally won’t we doing any of my shopping at Lowe’s for a long time.
