Florida Family Association
I don’t understand why there’s so much public fury at Lowe’s for pulling their TV ads after being threatened with a boycott. Sure it was spineless for them to cower and bend over under pressure from a pitiful group of Biblehumping inbreds. But most of the public’s anger should be directed at the aforementioned inbreds — the Florida Family Association.
The Florida Family Association is apparently not affiliated with the American Family Association, even though both groups love to handle snakes, and they both go into mass seizures at the mere mention of Muslims, gay rights and people who say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas.
As you know, the president of the Florida Family Association — David Caton — threatened to boycott Lowe’s because Lowe’s was one of the sponsors of the TLC program “All-American Muslim.” Blasphemy! A TV show that portrays Muslims as ordinary day-to-day people instead of crazed jihadists — the nerve!
I’ve never seen All-American Muslim, or any other “reality” TV show for that matter. But I’ve seen a Canadian program — Little Mosque on the Prairie — a sitcom about the Muslim population in a small town in Saskatchewan. It’s pretty funny — just day to day life in a small town where the people happen to be Muslims. Presumably Canada doesn’t have any gangs of knuckle-dragging rednecks trying to get Little Mosque on the Prairie taken off the air.
Other TV shows condemned by the Florida Family Association include: Family Guy, Nip/Tuck, The Girls Next Door and Modern Family. Somebody has way too much time — and too many snakes — on his hands.
