Lowes Folds To Bigotry And Pulls Advertising From TLC's All-American Muslim

| Filed under: TV NewsReality TV

Lowes Blows

OMG! We can't believe this is actually happening! We can't believe we actually have to write about this nonsense! We can't believe companies like Lowes would actually LISTEN to this nonsense!

TLC's reality show All-American Muslim, which follows five muslim families living in Michigan and documents discrimination they face on a regular basis, is facing discrimination from advertisers!

After cowardly buckling to protests from the cray cray's of the Florida Family Association, Lowes has pulled their advertisements from the show because the FFA believes:

All-American Muslim is propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values."

Ugh! Get over yourselves!

When will people like this wake up and realize not everyone holds the same "traditional values". Not only that, but these nuts are trying to claim that a particular religion is of a particular danger to "American liberties". Have they forgotten that this country is founded on Freedom of Religion!?!

Yes, that means citizens are free to practice any religion and worship (or not worship) any God they want! Do you get it, FFA?

No? You're still blissfully ignorant and living in your own little blissfully ignorant world where only you're right and everyone else is wrong? Oh okay, that explains why you're intellectually incapable of learning anything from "The Learning Channel"!

What is sad is that these people who are unwilling to view the world from a different perspective ARE the problem with the world. Whether you're a terrorist attacking the American way of life or an American intolerant of a person who looks and speaks differently than you, you are spoiling this great planet for the rest of us who are just trying to get along.

After citing "offensive" moments in the show, such as a Muslim police officer stating he is an American (who rightfully asserts there are "no ifs ands or buts about it"), the FFA campaign, calling for other intolerant viewers to complain to advertisers, reads:

"Clearly this program is attempting to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and to influence them to believe that being concerned about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show."

Not only do we COMPLETELY disagree with the Florida Family Association here, but we think we'll be choosing Home Depot for all of our home improvement needs from now on.

We'd like to encourage any of our readers who feel the same way to write Lowes and express your disappointment in the company for folding to pressure based entirely on fear and bigotry.

If you want to read the Florida Family Associations argument in full, click here and let them know the only "clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values" is THEM!

Are U upset by this? Share your thoughts below and let the whole social media world know that #LowesBlows!

    For once perez is actually right



  2. 2

    Why so quick to jump on the bigotry wagon ? Lowes can advertise with whomever they wish, Chik-Fil-A can endorse whomever they wish, and stores can refuse service to anyone they choose and they don't need a reason. You speak of freedom of religon, what about freedom of choice ? As I mentioned before stores can choose to service whomever they want and refuse service to whomever they want without having to give reason. Kind of like when you exercised your freedom of choice to live a homosexual lifestyle Perez.. Get over yourself, and glad to hear that you're shopping at Home Depot now I can shop at Lowes without having to worry that i'll accidentally run into your pathetic, idiotic ass!



  3. 3

    This is disgusting! The ignorance and intolerance of some people is truly astounding.



  4. 4

    Why can't a company decide who they will advertise with? If they think the show is offensive- then let them pull their ads- why does this have to be a news story???



  5. 5

    Re: dryan1971 – …so let's hear it for the freedom to choose which group to hate and discriminate against, right Einstein?



  6. 6

    true muslims desire jihad. there is no question about it.. educate yourselves..



  7. 7

    Lowe's has the prerogative to use their advertising budget however they chose. As for the rabid commentary on other media sites, it's obvious most posters tweeted each other to spam blogs with their outrage. How many in the PC community had ever heard of this show or watched it? Lowe's did the show a huge favor by putting it on the map.



  8. 8

    btw, I've stopped shopping at Macy's because of their huge gay agenda.. is that offensive to anyone? tough shit.. I choose who I shop with, and they choose who they advertise with.. I'm not going to picket their store or tell other people not to shop there.. not everything is news, our country is great because we can make choices like Lowes has made. What makes you so much smarter than they are? It's people like you who will invite the enemy in their homes and let them set roots into the fiber of what makes you who you are..



  9. 9

    Lowe's has the freedom to endorse and advertise however they want, but that doesn't mean they are ignorant in agreeing with the FFA. There are many shows about Christians that don't garner the response of such bigotry. TLC also airs "Sister Wives" and "19 And Counting" without showing the "risky" sides of Christian extremists, but the FFA isn't up in arms about them for not representing the full spectrum of the religion.



  10. 10

    Good for Lowes! I'll shop there now for sure. Perez, this shows how uniformed you are. read the Koran and you will see they believe in Jihad. Don't be stupid and think this is just some fun religion. It is not. Educate yourself before you post crap like this.



  11. 11

    Oh shut the fuck up, Perez. Stop acting so holy.



  12. 12

    In the words of Oscar Wilde, "America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between."



  13. 13

    Yes, Lowes has a right to pull advertisement from any program it wants, but the fact is that they bent over to appease a bunch of backwards ass bigots from Florida. Man up! If those bigots wanted to take their business to the inferior customer services of Home Depot, let them.

    I don't agree with any of the redneck, political causes Chick-Fil-A supports either, but at least I respect that those are actually issues they support and not just caving to a bunch of right wing morons who make a mockery of all the liberties they claim they value.



  14. 14

    I'm gonna go ahead and support Lowe's on this one. Perez, you don't have to pick EVERY single cause out there to support. And muslim would be about the worst one to go ahead and pick up. Jeez, you are the biggest bully in the play ground and you choose to pick on Lowe's? You're unbelieveable. How quickly you forget that muslims are actually cutting the heads off Americans. Shame on you.

    Re: electromouth – Oh I love that quote!



  16. 16

    i respect you so much more for posting this!
    the ignorant people below read a few biased articles and think they know everything about islam… get over yourselves. please.



  17. 17

    Re: KarrieBelle – It's hilarious that outraged so-called consumers threaten to take their business to HD. HD is rated in the Top Ten as worst offenders for employee treatment and customer service. (Hear that, founder of Def Records?) If truly PC wall street occupiers want to do the right thing, do business to the local hardware store….if there are any left.



  18. 18

    what a beautifully written article!



  19. 19

    Well I, for one, have always been a bigger fan of Lowes than Home Depot. The shelves at Home Depot are constantly empty and Lowes marketing campaign is significantly more effective. Throw this into the mix, and, well, frankly, I don't give a shit. Cry me a fucking river. Their money, their choice. But, if I could suggest one itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, microscopic piece of advice . . . Acclimation. That's what Muslims ALL AROUND the world (not just the US) need to comprehend and practice. They're almost single-handedly eradicating culture from the countries they inhabit by insisting on their refusal to familiarize themselves with native practices and procedures. Hell, they've even created their own set of laws. Religion does not have to be a problem. While there's no need for it to exist, it certainly can exist when executed properly. With that being said, blatant displays of this and that, all of which reflect upon one's religion, have no place within an opposing norm. If I want to see platoons of people dressed in Islamic/Arabic garb, sliding down their mats, and praying X times a day then I will go to Iran, Pakistan, etc.



  20. 20

    Let's throw this up to the NIMBY argument and agree that we don't want extreme displays of incontrovertible customs and ideologies occurring in our back yard. Those who believe so firmly in a higher power (I mean, come on, religion has been antiquated since the Scientific Revolution) are not as stable as those who abide by a societal and civilized code of conduct. The liberals in this country bathe in the term "Acceptance" but never do they understand the implications and ramifications of its inevitably deteriorating consequences. A country's greatest pride is its culture but if said country invites everyone in for the party and refuses to re-enforce some strand of acclimation, then well, the globe will soon be rid of its greatest treasures. Mark my words, it all starts and ends with Islam.



  21. 21

    Ludicris! this is effing ludicris!!!! I am posting to my 650 k followers so they can join the fight against this ridiculousness.



  22. 22

    Re: electromouth – Quoting a man who spent @ 23 hours a day playing with his genitals and trying to link america and decadence together is classic



  23. 23

    Re: kallengirl – Thats possibly the most ignorant statement I've ever read. I'm muslim and I'm not chopping anyones head off, I was born and raised in America. I went through 9/11 with all my fellow Americans and I cried with everyone else. It's not fair that I have to suffer from the backlash. Plus I don't even consider those people muslim, they were terrorists. Islam is a peaceful religion, how about you educate yourself before making dumb hateful comments.

    24

    Perez my respect for you sky rocketed because you posted this. I will never shop at Lowes again. And…I just want to make a blanket statement. In Islam like any religion, it is open to interpretation based on the development of society and language. Islam does not frown upon women, it is the Sharia (man made laws years and years later) that step on women's rights. Furthermore, Islam gave women the right to own land, divorce, inherit, and marry by their own choosing (it's the geological rules within tribes that can alter that). Islam gave women the right to vote and carry a life nearly equal to men and they did this centuries before we gave women the right to do that in America or the west. What you and I see is the doing of man, who put their own interpretation on the religion. In fairness, all major religions suffer this fate, if not in America then somewhere around the globe. In recent decades, Islam has taken a leap backwards and continued down this path. It's easy to judge an entire faith by what we see in our life time but lets keep in mind that any faith on the face of this planet existed long before us, and what we are seeing is merely a page in a long book.



  25. 25

    Wow…… Fact: jihad means *personal struggle against evil* Fact: killing someone when it is not in self-defense is forbidden and considered an abomination in islam. Fact: Islam christianity and Judaism all follow the ten commandments of Moses. Fact: Many people prefer buying stuff instead of learning religions. Don't fear Jihad, fear your own destructive lifestyle you retards. Instead of getting all riled up against normal muslim people, why not actually go and read what the Qur'an really says. NOT HARD TO DO. Thanks for being understanding and standing up for this. I think those are the real American values.



  26. 26

    Let me tell you something, you pig. When I see Muslims calling for the death of Israelis and Jews, I have every right to hate them. When their holy books says people like you and me should be killed, I have every right to hate them. Go to a Muslim country and pull what you pull here and see what happens you hypocritical douchebag.



  27. 27

    Good for Lowes! They just gained a customer. That show fails to show all facets of Islam (many are NOT so good, kind, tolerant etc.)

    Next time we head to Home Depot, I'm going to suggest we try Lowes.

    28

    perez, mad props bro! its sad to see this thread full of racist bigots who must be with the FFA, spreading hate will only produce more hate, i, as a muslim, as a TRUE muslim, whos studied my OWN religion, been to more muslim countries than most of these people here can even think of know that my religion does not in anyway promote hate or violence, but equality and tolerance….just because people hvae taken a very beautiful religion and manipulated it and used it for evil and destruction doesnt mean they represent the religion. we promote equal rights, but sadly we do have ignorant and narrow minded leaders who do promote hate which we TRUE muslims denounce is not islamic. we wish peace upon everyone….again, Perz, very noble of you to post this whole piece, you're truly a good man.



  29. 29

    PEEREX, you DB, lowes is a FOR PROFIT business, much the same as YOURS. Don't you decide how to spend your advertising dollars? Why do you not allow other businesses to do the same. You are an evil hypocritical son of a bitch.



  30. 30

    ALL of you people who support PEEREX'S stand always DEMAND your rights, but refuse others to have the same right. Seriously you should read a little of your laws and the constitution, you know the PAPER that codifies your rights.



  31. 31

    Re: piggsie – that is EXACTLY what PEEREX is doing, seriously don't you see that?



  32. 32

    Why dont the replace the show with a Amecian NeoNazi program. They can point them in a positive, like watch them play Xbox and watch football and forget about that whole kill blacks and jews thing

    I mean after all, the MAJORITY of muslims still practice Stoning , Mutilation, abuse and execution of gays and women. According to the WHO over 50 billion women have been mutilated. Advertisers should just jump on board!!! Maybe Perez should move over there and get his dick cut off becuase he is gay. What great behavior.



  33. 33

    Re: AB21 – religion does not in anyway promote hate or violence" I'm sorry but you must be mis-reading your BOOK. It has been many years since i read it but I do recall a section that directs the "taking of arms" to spread the "word" When will everyone that ALL RELIGIONS OF ANY BOOK, are selfcontradicatory and full of lies, hate, murder, jealousy. Both books, refer to David the "good leader" who sends his general out to get killed so david can fuck his wife. is just one example.



  34. 34

    Re: pammie1 – in your post to your "650,000" (yeah i believe that) followers that you are a fucking idiot.

    Good for Lowe's. Now if they could just pull their advertising from gay shows.

  36. AB21 says – reply to this


    36

    Re: raypearson – yes, it is our duty to spread the word….by just spreading the word…please show me in FULL CONTEXT, as in the two verses before it, and the two verses after it, where it says to "take up arms to spread the word"



  37. 37

    how do you get a muslim women off?

    You cant- their clitoris was cut off with a dirty razor blade. women dont deserve the right to experience pleasure , they are second class citizens and just a hole for their men.

    And gays? They aint event second class citizens to the MAJORITY of muslims. they are less than coackaches and will be stoned on site.

    The is a religion that has not evolved form the middle ages.Its savage , inhumane, bigoted and one of the most EVIL examples of religion controlling people.

    This show is dishonest and highlights a very small minority of the muslims in the world. ( thats right people, the US is not the center of the universe)Google image women mutilation in islam. Over 10 billion women in ISlam have mutilated faces from Acid ( the problem is so common, they are trying to ban acid form being sold). How many have had their noses cut off?

    Perez, I think you are trying to be a nice guy here but you are very ignorant a bout this situation and the world of Islam.

    Re: Pretty Boys Are Forever

    Islam the land of stoning , abusing , mutilating , degrading and executing people based solely on their gender and sexual orientation. Is that bigotry or something worse?

    Re: MVPnis – it was just 70-60 years ago america was hosing down and brutally beating and lynching down blacks, im pretty sure the american justice system is just as effed up as the effed up muslims out there, we free the guilty and convict the innocent

    Re: MVPnis – i dont hate america at all, i truly love this country, i did do the research "ignorant one' and its impossible for 10 billion muslim women to be abused…because THERE ARENT EVEN 10 BILLION HUMANS ALIVE TO BEGIN WITH! LMAOOOO YOU RETARD!!!!!! the world population is 6 BILLION! theres 1.4 BILLION muslims out there, now how many do you think are women? hahahhahahaha woooow, it truly shows how IGNORANT you bigots are….maybe if you really did research, sat with a muslim, and asked him questions as to why these horrendous actions occur, maybe you wouldnt hate so much



  49. 49

    Re: AB21 – thereyou go being WRONG AGAIN



  50. 50

    …..The word bigot means "stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one's own." So I think, Perez, by definition, you are a bigot as well.



  51. 51

    Re: MVPnis – There aren't even 50 billion people on the planet, moron. Muslim extremists are NOT the majority, that's why they're called EXTREMISTS. Most muslims are peaceful people. The Qu'ran is no worse than the bible, but fear and ignorance means people twist it to be so. Disgusting.



  52. 52

    I'm very upset by this. I understand Lowe's right to advertise who they wish as well as Chik-fil-a however the fact that they did this in order to continue the prejudice RATHER than inform American society that there is more than one view of an American muslims. For instance, @kallengirl says ignorant shit like "How quickly you forget that muslims are actually cutting the heads off Americans" and WHY NOT share every flippin cause out there because how else are they going to educate people like you who chooses to believe a stereotype and create social change in America. I'm so embarrassed with all the comments I wrote, any respectable person who feels the need voice opinions so close-minded and so close to stupidity should really at least try to learn more than what they see or hear first. The reason this is such an issue (besides the fact that Lowes has the freedom of choice to keep America ignorant) is that this show would not only show multiple perspectives and the huge discrimination that muslims encounter every single day, it will show that these people are American. They love this country every much as we do and the fact that show has the opportunity to show Americans how prejudice we are is amazing. America needs a huge slap in the face on all the biases we have.



  53. 53

    some lovely quotes from the bible for all of you who seem to think the quran is the only religious book that should be taken verbatim
    *
    Leviticus 20:9
    If anyone curses his father or mother, he must be put to death.
    20:10
    If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife—with the wife of his neighbor—both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death.
    Deuteronomy 22:20-1
    If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the girl’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death.
    Exodus 35:2
    For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the LORD. Whoever does any work on it must be put to death.
    Deuteronomy 7:1-2
    When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations . . . then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.
    Exodus 21:20-21
    If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.
    Leviticus 25:44-45
    Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property.

  55. 55

    Hmm… If Lowe's had pulled their advertising from a "conservative" show like 19 Kids & Counting or Fox News would they be called "bigoted"?



  56. 56

    Re: AttFinch – Apparently you didn't realize that all of those Bible verses are from the Old Testament? If you actually read the Bible instead of just Googling something like "crazy bible verses", you would know that, & you would know why the old testament is in many regards to be viewed differently than the new.



  57. 57

    The Florida Family Assocation has a long history of not only attacking Muslims but also President Obama, entertainment companies and the LGBT community:
    *
    The FFA created a highly-edited video that tries to make President Obama appear to be Muslim and derided the “extraordinarily strong bond that President Barack Obama has with Islam.”
    The group went after Campbell’s soup for boosting the “advancement of Islam and Sharia law in the United States” because the company made halal soups and sponsored a conference held by a Canadian Muslim relief organization.
    The FFA also waged a campaign against Modern Family. Florida Family Association objects to Modern Family because the show labels a same-sex couple with an adopted child as a modern family and attempts to normalize homosexuality by contrasting it with heterosexual couples that the show characterizes as abnormal.”
    The group helped pass a state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, a ban on same-sex parents adopting children, and claimed to have sent state legislators “over 10,000 emails opposing Domestic Partnerships and legislation that promotes the homosexual lifestyle,” including legislation that would bar discrimination against people due to their sexual orientation.

  60. 60

    This makes me so sad. I understand lowes hass a right to do what they please im not taking that away but do it because its what you feel is right not because of what other people may think. My sister was shot and killed by her muslim ex boyfriend. He did it because he was crazy not because he was muslim and i would never in my life hold that against any muslim person. My jhs got the ashed on from the twin towers falling. I would never be ignorant enough to say all muslims are evil. My boyfriend is a muslim and I've never been treated so well by any guy and one day I will be a muslim too. there are radicals in every religion and we need to stop penalizing the whole and start penalizing the few. These people on this show did NOTHING to any of us and we need to start recognizing the difference between evil people and good innocent people.



  61. 61

    I will now become a Lowe's shopper. Please understand "free speach" and take a look at the Quaran. The ignorant continue to amaze me..

    Re: Appalachian_American – Yes, much better!



  63. 63

    Perez is such a HUGE hypocrite! If there was a show called "All American Christian" and Lowes pulled their ad he would be PRAISING them! He would call Christians, Homophobes, Bigots, Racists ETC… Perez you are a huge HYPOCRITE and PS: Muslims hate GAY people too!



  64. 64

    Re: Appalachian_American – so i'm guessing you don't "believe" in the Old Testament? how convenient. and it's not like the New Testament doesn't also contain lots of as you described "crazy bible versus". how blasphemous of you.
    the contents of the New Testament deal explicitly with 1st century Christianity, although BOTH the Old and New Testament are regarded, together, as Sacred Scripture.



  65. 65

    So they're obviously besties with the Westboro Baptist Church



  66. 66

    i always loved you perez…but with your take on this news.. i love you even more. to people who don't understand why this is not a good thing. you have not been discriminated against.. in other words.. you don't get it. and it's exactly why perez has such a strong opinion about this news…



  67. 67

    Fuck Lowes. Guess I'll be giving all my business to Home Depot, assholes.

    Go fuck yourselves.



  68. 68

    Re: Lexiibabii – The fact that you plan on converting to Islam just shows your utter lack of intellect. Also, in a way, it shows that your boyfriend (and HIS family) cannot completely and truly accept you UNTIL you've taken the leap of faith. Religion shouldn't be an issue, but guess what . . . it is. For those trying to spread their beliefs where they are neither wanted or needed simply proves that they're stupid. Perhaps you should see a therapist, as it sounds like you may be suffering under delusion or quite possibly being brainwashed. Here's a piece of advice, do not convert. Celebrate the culture and history of your native religion in a secular manner or perhaps just abide by the golden rule and be loving of everybody WITHOUT the backing of an ancient, antiquated set of rules and fictional stories. Be the you WITHOUT religion and then see if your boyfriend is so perfectly understanding of you and loves you unconditionally.



  69. 69

    Wow americas are big fucken racist shits



  70. 70

    Wow, everyone's so worked up about this. The thing is, Lowes can advertise where they want. If you disagree, just shop somewhere else. But the bottom line is that this tv is hard for a lot of Americans to handle bc the Muslim community in America has largely stayed quiet on the war on terror. The American Muslim community is also not standing up or openly trying to put an end to home-grown terrorists. I'm not saying that every Muslim in America is evil or secretly wishing to cut off anyone's head. But I do think that if the American Muslim community wants to be more accepted in the US then they need to join us in battling these terrorists that are killing innocent people the world over AND doing it in the name of Allah. As a Christian, I don't like to be grouped with every radical group that claims Christianity. For instance, Westboro Baptist does not at ALL know the first thing about Christ. So when they came to my hometown to protest, I joined the opposition group. They have hijacked Christianity so as a Christian I gladly was a part of telling the world that they don't know the first thing about Jesus. If the Muslim community is sincere in their disapproval of terrorists, then stand up against it. Stand up against Sharia law. Stand up against oppression in the name of Allah. Until that happens, Americans will have a hard time believing Islam is a peaceful faith.



  71. 71

    Re: dryan1971 – My thought exactly. They can advertise wherever they wish, end of story. The outrage! Yeah right.



  72. 72

    Re: Death2Gaga – I don't have to convert that shows your utter lack of knowledge for the religion lOl I'm choosing to convert. Thats where the conversation ends lmfao because since you dont know the most simple basic knowledge part of the muslim religion shows me that you do in fact know NOTHING. Just saying my boyfriend is half Honduran and half spanish. Just thought you should know. smh. If my mother who lost a child who was a biased person and weary of muslim people can forgive and love and take a muslim man loving her only daughter left and calls him her son I don't see why anybody else can't. Knowledge is power and I see not everybody has that. Read up my friend you'll learn a couple things. lOl

    Re: Lexiibabii – I actually took several theology courses in college, so I think I'm just the slightest bit adept in handling conversations on such topics. The correlation/connection between intellect (or lack thereof) and religious devotion has been proven. Now, see, I'm not trying to insult you, but there are only so many ways to skirt the issue without delving into particular vocabulary. You said, "My boyfriend is a muslim and I've never been treated so well by any guy and one day I will be a muslim too." Love is blind, is it not? It would figure then, should love be blind, then it's also oblivious to creed. Your statement, as would be perceived by almost anyone, implies that you are converting to Muslim BECAUSE your significant other is Muslim. All I ask is why? Why convert? So, instead of waiting for your painfully contrived, inane, and uninformed response, I advised that you do NOT convert and save yourself the hassle of stumbling down on bended knee and submissing yourself to your potential husband's beck and call. In love, religion plays no part*. Hmm, I put an asterisk, didn't I? I suppose I should explain. Religion plays no part in love, should the two parties be educated academics or thoughtful, moral beings. In converting, you are, in fact, losing a part of yourself. Or, as the matter may be, you don't care for your religion and therefore are committing yourself to your lover's will.

    Re: Lexiibabii – Either way, what sense does it make? You're better off celebrating the secularity of religion and enjoying the overall message that it celebrates, which, as is often the case, love and acceptance. The practice of religion, whether it be by a zealot, extremist, or terrorist, has no part in modern civilization. Religion drives people to do unquestionably deplorable crimes. As a society, a society of humans, especially in America, religion is not needed. Why? Because we have science and law and we're also smart enough to realize that not every question needs an answer. We. Are. Civilized. Those who are devoutly devoted to their faith are often Uncivilized. So, as to relay back to your Hondurian/Egyptian bo, if he's asking/implying that you convert to HIS religion, then there's an issue there that you may want to consider dealing with, because from what I can discern, you are taking the backseat to his religion. And, well, if I'm with someone, I certainly wouldn't want her valuing another entity more than myself. Religion is an obstacle and hopefully you'll be smart enough to plow right through it and leave it in your rear-view mirror. If you were MY GF, the talk of conversion would never ever come up, but, then again, I'm not Muslim. Also, lastly, the fear of Islam in America is actually quite rational. This is the 9/11 generation. We do not fear a nation, we fear a principal, and that, my friend, is truly terrifying.

    Re: Death2Gaga – I'm def not saying it's irrational. I understand. But as someone who has lived a loss of my SISTER being KILLED by a MUSLIM MAN and my ability and especially my MOTHERS ability to look past a religion and who a person is,is something I feel many people should do.You can take as many courses as your little heart desired its still nothing compared to living it or seeing it or seeing a family who not only accepted someone who was not of their faith but accept TWO people who are not of their faith.I convert because I want to. I'm not religious at ALL.I'm roman catholic and also happen to be a native american. My mom somehow joined to the two.Now my bf has celebrated Christmas his whole entire life. He also fasts during Ramadan and has BBQ's on Easter. This is all I'm trying to say stop basing what a few people did on 9-11 on every muslim out there.Just like the bible is taught how one person interprets it that goes for the quran. Every religion has their radicals. People just need to relax. See it from other perspectives. School can teach you but so much but theres nothing like a life experience.His Muslim grandmother asks how I'm doing and asks when I'll have a baby even though she doesnt like me spending the night when shes there since we're not married.She doesn't speak a lick of english and embraces me for who I am.Tells him to just marry me at city hall. Which requires no converting.

    Re: Death2Gaga – Its not about Lowes pulling their add.They can do what they want it's the reasoning behind it.If they feel this show is negative in any way say that but don't pull you're add because other sponsors are doing it and you're jumping on the bandwagon.Be about it.

    I'm so glad you all sound like ignorant rednecks, generalizing an entire population of people. And you claim to know the "Facts" Don't make me laugh. So we should just generalize everyone, All Germans are Nazis, All gays are flamboyant, so on and so forth.

    To be honest, reading this ignorant and uneducated comments about Islam and Muslims is very disturbing to me. I find it sad that people can be so close-minded and unaccepting of others. As a Muslim, and an Arab-American, you know what I wanna say to those people? How about YOU get out of America. Obviously none of them have any idea about what it means to be an American. They can't accept others, they won't allow themselves to be educated, and they are territorial and completely irrational. Yes, there are Muslims who are bad. But there are horrible Christians and Jews in the world that are bad too. I've heard stories of priests molesting children. I've heard stories of Jewish men abusing their wives. Oh, and how about Columbine? Was it not a Christian man who committed that horrifying crime? It was. But does that mean that ALL Jews and Christians are bad? Absolutely not. The fact that a group of people would be so against something as simple as an advertisement is something I find pathetic. And the fact that even MORE people are agreeing to that, is something very very sad. Shame on everyone who has a problem with people who are different. If being Muslim is something that would bother anyone in America, then get out. Because this is a place where we can all believe whatever we want to believe and you are not one to tell us we cant.



  94. 94

    Oh, and just an FYI. The direct translation of "Jihad" is NOT run around and chop people's heads off. In the Quran, it means a personal struggle. Whether that struggle is with school, work, family life, or war, a struggle is a struggle, there for Jihad. Get educated before explaining things you don't even understand.



  95. 95

    Re: Lexiibabii – My particular point is that Islam holds itself in higher regard to "alien" cultures. On the majority, they do not acclimate to their non-native country. That, no matter your religion, is a major problem. When you're too busy constructing walls and fencing out your surrounding community, ill-sentiment will be harbored. They WILL be singled out. They WILL be feared. Muslims will always be Muslims, which isn't exactly the issue here… It's that, because of their religion, they will never be American Muslims, French Muslims, Japanese Muslims, etc. But, you know what's an ever greater dilemma? It's the fact that we still label them Muslims. They should just be people, regardless of religion, nationality, sexual orientation, etc. These people, those of the Islamic connection, INSIST that they remain Muslims. Not Americans, not Californians, not neighbors, just Muslim. They allow that word, the religion, to identify them. And as long as that continues they will never be fully accepted outside of their native territory. Of course this isn't a Muslim-centric problem, but they are certainly the biggest culprits.



  96. 96

    You think I'm going to go move on out to Pakistan and live my life exactly as I do now in California? Fuck no. I would take into consideration their customs and culture and do my damndest to not offend the status quo. Just look at what Islam is doing to Paris. One of the greatest cities in the history of mankind could very well be on the verge of collapse… Anywho, I've lost my train of thought. Best to end it now.



  97. 97

    Wow, muslims:
    - think it's OK to subjugate women
    - " " " " lie to "infidels"
    - throw molotov cocktails at organizations for making a joke about their religion, even though the same organizations (i.e. local newspapers, Comedy Central, etc.) have poked fun at other religion without inciting any real anger
    - want to bring Sharia Law to non-muslim countries (i.e. Canada and the UK)
    No, not all muslims are "bad people", but a lot of them have a fanatical holier-than-thou attitude, and never take responsibility for the fact that YES, THERE IS A PROBLEM within their religion, and it is muslims who have to seek to correct it, as opposed to hiding their heads in the sand by saying that every act of violence in the name of islam is "an isolated event".

    I moved to France a couple years ago, and trust me, muslims can be a major pain in the ass here (and this is a country that supported interracial relationships back when the US still made black people drink from separate fountains, so France can't be accused of being racist)!

    Re: Oliver1 – Haha. I just referenced Paris in the comment before yours . . . Hopefully that remarkable city/country will start doing what is needed/required to retain and maintain their remarkable history.



  99. 99

    Re: Death2Gaga – Hey there, just read your comment AFTER i posted mine (my bad). Paris truly is remarkable, and I hope it retains its heritage too. I don't mind that it's multicultural; in fact, i like that, but a lot of muslims there stick out like sore thumbs and have snubbed local laws because they think there above them. If you get the chance, check out some of France's political cartoons re. Islam (I don't know if you understand French, though). Some are really thought-provoking and funny, but they've also royally pissed off certain parties (guess)… Cheers
