    New reality show about American Muslims

    The series, which premieres in November, tracks "very distinct lives that often times challenge the Muslim stereotype," according to the release.
    Characters include a pair of tight-knit sisters, one of whom wears a traditional Islamic headscarf and one who sports piercings and tattoos and has recently married an Irish Catholic man who is converting to Islam.
    Another character is a consultant to big auto manufacturer and struggles to strike a balance between work and raising a modern Muslim family, according to the TLC release.

    When do we get a show about American Catholics, Minnesota Lutherans, or Miami Jews?

    How about a Survivor type reality gameshow, pitting different religions against each other in bug-eating and mud-wrestling contests?

    Lets see now, the story is.....dau marries a catholic who is converting to Islam. All is happy in family. Now, if the story was the dau marries a catholic and is converting to catholicism, would they show dear ol dad going berserk and doing the honorable thing by cutting off her head? It would be a short-run show - one episode and lost of reruns. If your offended, sorry about that.

    I'm not even going to mention my particular Christian denomination ( LDS-Mormon ) .

    Much has been produced on the matter has been inaccurate.

    Will they follow them during jihad?

    Media caters to ratings. If ratings work the show will stay. If it doesn't they will jhiad the program.
