If they were really All Americans they'd be Christians.

Screw that show. It is propaganda.

Do you all think any Muslim country outside of maybe Turkey would let "All Arabian Christian" air on TV?

But that's what makes living in the west so great.
Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.

Man... I just spent a few minutes on FFA's website and it actually made me angry reading some of what's on there. Even though I'm pretty confident I wont get a response, I'm going to send them an email asking to clarify a few things.

I very much equate 9/11 with Pearl Harbor. I know, Gridlock, you're the first one to make such a comparison.

After Pearl, there was so much animosity towards Japanese people, that they were rounded up and interred for the duration of the war. Prisoners of War, without picking up a single weapon.

People cheered it. Then forgot it, and then realized it was wrong.

After 9/11, there was so much animosity, that we can't allow people to build a mosque in an area close to the WTC site. So much animosity that one group can force another to alter their business plans.

And there is so much animosity, that even some members right here on this forum can show us link after link about what people are capable of, when they declare they work on behalf of Islam.

And people cheer it. And soon, we'll forget it. And I hope, soon, we'll realize its wrong.

Hey, I get it. I know very little about the Islamic faith, and all I hear doesn't put it in the class of "progressive" religions that I'd want to convert to.

This pisses me off, because it strengthens this FFA, and organizations like it the next time they target a company that does something they disagree with. Hell, Gays are on their radar-who's next?

And it really pisses me off that Lowe's couldn't even whitewash this with talk of ratings. That shows you where their collective minds are at. They don't even care.
