According to a Charlotte Observer news report, a coalition of “interfaith” organizations is planning on delivering a petition to Lowe’s protesting its decision to stop advertising on the reality TV show “All-American Muslim.” (For Sage_brush’s post on the planned All-American Muslim reality show, click here.)
The coalition claims it has 200,000 signers on its petition.
Act for America is coming to the defense of Lowe’s with a petition. Already, a first round of 31,000 petition signers has been delivered to Lowe’s.

This what the petition in support of Lowe’s says:
We the undersigned join to stand with Lowe’s Home Improvement stores in their decision to cease the flow of their advertising dollars to The Learning Channel’s (TLC) television show “All-American Muslim.”
We believe that American businesses should be free to make advertising decisions without fear of repercussion from radical Islamist groups.
We strongly oppose the tactics used by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to attack Lowe’s Home Improvement, an American company, for making a responsible and lawful business decision.
We reject comments from California State Senator Ted Lieu alleging that, because Lowe’s decided to stop its advertising, the company is “bigoted, shameful and un-American.”
Therefore, we the undersigned, join with others across America, to let Lowe’s Home Improvement know that:
- We support Lowe’s Home Improvement’s decision to end paid advertising on TLC’s “All-American Muslim.”
- We thank Lowe’s Home Improvement for their position in the face of unwarranted and unfair criticism.
We are resolved that in addition to signing this petition today we will pass it along to others in our circle of influence and encourage them to add their names to this document as part of our statement of support for Lowe’s Home Improvement.

Another way to support Lowe’s is to buy something from Lowe’s. Make sure you tell the checker why!
