Lowe's is suffering a backlash from politicians, civil rights advocates and celebrities from Mia Farrow to Kal Penn for bowing to pressure from the tiny Florida Family Association to pull the home improvement retail giant's commercials from TLC's All-American Muslim. But Lowe's was just the latest advertiser approached by the conservative Christian group that claims its campaigns have had varying success. After the jump are other targets of the FFA, including a biography on a Huntington Beach resident.

A Lowe's spokesman explained to The Hollywood Reporter Friday its decision to bow to the FFA: "We understand the program raised concerns, complaints or issues from multiple sides of the viewer spectrum, which we found after doing research of news articles and blogs covering the show."

Here's that list we promised:
