Florida Family Association Website Reportedly Hacked

The conservative organization recently convinced Lowe’s to pull its support of the TLC show “All-American Muslim.”

Just days after convincing a national hardware chain to pull its financial support of the TLC show “All-American Muslim,” the Florida Family Association is now claiming its website has been hacked.

The conservative Tampa-based organization with ties to Carrollwood has long lobbied against what its founder David Caton says is “the rising tide of immorality," according to an article published in The Tampa Tribune.

The association’s members started a letter-writing campaign to Lowe’s following the show’s debut on TLC in November. “All-American Muslim” portrays the lives of five Muslim American families living in Dearborn, MI.

While supporters of the show say it’s a portrayal of what life is really like for these people, Caton claims "it's flat propaganda hiding the Islamic agenda's threat to American liberties and values," according to the Tribune article.

The St. Petersburg Times broke the news of the website’s alleged hacking this morning. Caton has claimed that he’s received threats since launching the campaign to get Lowe’s to pull its advertising from the TLC show.

On the association’s website, Caton wrote: “No further proof is needed of the potential for vicious action then exactly what these folks are trying to do to this web site. The attack has been extremely mean spirited.”

 Caton did not return phone calls this morning.

The Florida Family Association has a Carrollwood phone number, but operates using a downtown Tampa post office box. It is unclear where the organization is based.

What do you think about the Florida Family Association’s campaign against “All-American Muslim?”

David Caton himself apparently doesn't hold American values. This is a country of a freedom to worship the God that you see fit. Let's take David Koresh, Jim Jones and the Crusades of the middle ages and say that they are what Christianity is all about. Muslims are just as against pornography as Christians are - probably more so. You would think Caton would welcome Muslims to help him in that area. Jews have a large play in the 'ungodly' movie industry - to include porn. Does Caton speak out against Jews for the ones involved with that? Caton needs to remove the 'Beam in his own eye' before prejudging others. A lot of American Muslims love our freedoms and are contributing members of the good in our society. Caton spreads hatred and only those with a hardened heart will listen to him. Jesus never spoke against the Greek or Roman gods, but he greatly criticized the self righteous religious Pharisees. What would Caton say to Jesus when He hung out with publicans and sinners? Caton does things exactly backwards to win non-Christians to Christ.

Lowe's -- what a bunch of cowards. Curious why they'd let a psycho like this guy coerce them into pulling their support.
