Liberty Counsel is once again showing what may be the most ubiquitous personal trait of the wingnut tribe — hypocrisy. When gay people use their purchasing power and voice to push companies to favor equality, that’s “economic terrorism.” When wingnuts do the same thing to complain about a TV show, that’s just doing God’s work.
A Christian legal group applauds Lowe’s for standing by its decision to pull advertisements from a show on Muslims living in America. The North Carolina-based Charlotte Observer reports that Lowe’s will not change its decision to pull commercials from TLC’s All-American Muslim. The decision came after the Florida Family Association and the American Decency Association requested that constituents e-mail the show’s advertisers because of the program’s failure to present the lives of radical Islamic believers truthfully. The company has stood firm on its move, even after Muslim groups launched their own petition drive.
“We applaud Lowe’s for taking the steps that they think [are] correct by pulling the advertising,” says Matt Krause, litigation counsel for Liberty Counsel. “And if they don’t feel that the show or the contents of the show genuinely reflect the values of its customers, then we say that that’s terrific that they’re standing by their decision.”
Bryan Fischer will be so proud.
