Edwin's right though. Lowe's didn't really do anything wrong. If they wanted to pull out, so be it.

I put the blame solely on the FFA.

ding ding ding. I've known plenty of Muslims who really do fit the "All American" moniker. CAIR can be kinda annoying IMO, but so can Bill Donhue from the Catholic League (and I say that as a Catholic). Sure there are some pretty scary wack jobs, but they are akin to the Aryan Nation...well with more kills granted.

They are responsible for their actions.

They chose to appease the FFA and they deserve any criticism that comes with that.

Would you say the same if CAIR manages to pressure Lowe's back into the sponsorship?

I agree completely. But even as a business decision this one lacked foresight. By attempting to remove themselves from a potentially contentious position, they've put themselves in the center of it. I still maintain, however, that if the TV show was about conservative Christians, the FFA and others would cry foul.

"Duh" moment of the night. The FFA are no better than those two business majors back at my university.

Yes it's a free society. They also deserved the criticism from the FFA for daring to sponsor a show that depicted normal hard working Muslims Americans as normal hard working Muslim Americans.
