A certain home improvement store has decided to pull its advertisements from a new television show on TLC about a typical Muslim family in America, entitled All–American Muslim. They did this because of some fringe evangelicals from Florida (there’s a surprise – NOT). If the efforts of this evangelical group (Florida Family Association) isn’t blatant religious bigotry, I don’t know what is.
Some of my very best and most trusted friends are Muslim. Frankly, I trust each of them more than many “so-called Christians” who talk one way on Sunday and act a completely different (and sinful) way they rest of the week. These kinds of fringe Christian groups worry me far more than any potential adversary from inside or outside our nation.
Now is the time for all Americans to speak out (loudly) and stop this crapola, before it gets out of hand. Perhaps, if the German populace had spoken out in the 1930s, the horrors that took place in World War II may have been averted. Don’t be an ostrich and hide your head in the sand, speak out against this cowardly action.
How dare this home improvement chain not stand up for basic human rights and American principles of freedom of religion, fairness, free speech, and equal rights. Corporations wanted personhood, so it is time for them to get some backbone and stand up for what is right.
Is it at all possible that this will ever happen?
Who knows? Felt I had to say something about it, though.
