Hackers operating under the Anonymous and AntiSec banners breached the official website belonging to the Florida Family Association (floridafamily.org) allegedly obtaining tons of information on their members, including credit card details.
The main reason for the hack seems to be the hateful attitude displayed by the organization against gay communities and Muslims.
“Anonymous will not stand for hate and divisive vitriol to be spread across our country and whenever we can...we will stop it. FFA you managed to use your power to influence Lowe's to follow you into your racist stupor and they too will answer for that,” the hackers state
Email addresses, IP numbers and detailed credit card information was obtained from FFA’s databases, part of which was posted online in a Pastebin file. The hacktivist claim that they will not publish all the credit card data they obtained since they believe it might belong to innocent individuals who are among the “99 percent.”
“I am though reading the emails and getting information on those who did donate to make sure they are not worthy of the scorn of Anonymous as well...if i find information such as anyone being a part of other hate groups such as the Klan or anything similar all bets are off for those people,” they continue.
As a precaution, individuals who made donations to the FFA are advised to closely monitor their bank reports to make sure no illegal transactions will take place from their accounts. Also, those who were in the association’s mailing list should take in consideration that their email addresses may be misused to launch spam campaigns.
Even if the hackers say they’ll try not to hurt any innocent people, you never know who may get into the possession of the information that’s already out there, partly available for anyone to see.

The Florida Family Association is a hate group that promotes intolerance and is just as bad as the ones they persecute. They hide behind the Flag and Family just as Hitler did in his rise to power. Shame on them and their despicable deeds and hate propoganda.

Good for you! I'm a Christian, a BIBLE believing one, who knows the Word of God. And this organization can be likened to the Pharisees & Scribes of Jesus' days whom he called HYPOCRITES!! This group is spewing hatred when Jesus told to love your neighbor as yourself but of course this group has their interpretation NOT GOD'S.
Not only am I a Christian but I am PROUDLY AN ARAB with many family members who are MUSLIM. The show depicts those who are truly lovers of God and not haters of men of certain religions. Shame on FFA. I don't call you true Christians and those who agree w/what you are doing are NOT true Christians as well.

I agree w/you. [Just wrote a reply but it disappeared, may have posted???]
FFA is NOT a true Christian group but a bunch of phonies just like the Scribes & Pharisees of Jesus' days whom He called HYPOCRITES!!
I'm a proud CHRISTIAN ARAB & have Muslim family & friends. I'm sorry I have a credit card w/Lowe's but will be writing to them my disgust w/their discriminating decisions.

Racist Islamophobia spreading activist Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller may get their instruction from Mossad's propaganda department.

Good for Anonymous. Groups like FFA should be made illegal.

Good. This Family Association is decidedly racist and ought to be taken to court for its hateful attitudes. Just another religious organization being extremely divisive.

FFA should have freedom of speech, even if their speech is hateful. That doesn't mean they get to escape all the consequences of their hate speech though.
|Comment #4.1 by: Daniel on 13 Dec 2011, 01:24 GMT|
Well said. It is not up to the government to stop these morons. That would be a violation of the constitution. Freedom of speech may shield this group from the government, but it doesn't shield them from the people.

What race is an islamist? Why are so many people afraid of the truth? islam wants to kill all none islamists. not hate, written in their book of hate. islam is the real hater in our world today.

I think David Caton and Florida Family Association are very wrong on their view of Muslins. They have taken a very uneducated view of a whole group of people when only a few fall in what this group believes to be true of them. They choose to be uneducated because they do not want to be bothered with the facts. So once again they have made Florida a laughing stock for being so ignorant. The people in this group need to take lessons in how to get along with everyone, if we want to survive as a people. By the way I am a Christian!

I'm sorry for you. Have you read the Koran? I think not, you probably get your info from one source. Do yourself and everyone else a favor, go get some real info. on this religion, they we can have an educated discussion

More power to Anonymous. Hate Groups like FFA should be outlawed.

I've fought for our amendments and to have the right for others to use them, but i did not fight for people to use there rights against other people in a hatred agenda. yes, all American citizens have the right to use there rights freely, but not all Americans have earned that right. They should not to be allowed to contact these companies to boycott the shows. I'm sure people wouldn't allow the KKK to do these sorts of things against black related shows, so why should we allow Florida Family association to do it? If someone doesn't like what they see on T.V and other types of media... Stop watching, reading, and listening to it. that's your right... don't try to take it off the air because you don't like something. Its easier to change the channel, put down a magazine, and walk away from it then it is to Do all these circus hoops around like what these people are doing.

I'm a Christian Arab, have family & friends who are Muslims. I'm familiar w/Islam & it does not promote hate but no one can convince RACISTS of that truth. Many of the people who are opposing anything Muslim are Christians. I can say for sure many of the Christians I know have less regard for God than do the Muslims I know. If they were TRUE Christians they would follow the BIBLE which tells them to be a LIGHT, to turn the other cheek, to LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF. Besides, it appears the most child molesting goes on by CATHOLIC PRIESTS who are gently slapped on the hand and sent on their way to other locations so they can start w/a fresh set of children!

This is scary stuff to think the hackers (Anonymous) do not respect FFA's rights to freedom of speech. Besides threatening and fear mongering, Anonymous itself is proving to be hypocritical and willing to break the law and more. . . . Seems to me they are the ones to be stopped.
|Comment #12.1 by: FLGuy on 07 Mar 2012, 21:40 GMT|
No, Anonymous isn't disrespecting thier right to free speech, instead they are targeting them for all thier racist action. Score one for Anon, glad to see they are continuing to clear up all the filth

"hateful attitude". Way to be neutral 'softpedia'. Yet, 'hateful attitudes' about the womb, humility, sobriety and family are cool with you? This is what liberalism does: destroys those things that oppose THEM. This is a war, we are further divided (thanks to yer boy 0bama and his class warfare). And 'anonymous' wont 'stand'. Racist? Islam is a race? Can liberals be any more ignorant?????? Wimps. Tell us who you are.
|Comment #13.1 by: sickofphonies on 13 Dec 2011, 16:41 GMT|
The Florida Family Association is trying to do what you are accusing liberals of doing. They don't like Muslims so they are trying to get their show off the air by removing all of the advertising. And even worse, threatening boycotts if the companies don't cowtow to them and their biases. I know everyone has a right to free speech, but this type of bullying is certainly "unchristian". And don't blame Obama for the division in this country. The so-called good Christian right has been against him since the day he took office. A group of them referred to him as a skunk the other day. Talk about racist!

Softpedia only posts comments that support their views. Typical liberal bias.

They should at the very least release the names of the members to this shameful organization
|Comment #20 by: Eric on 14 Dec 2011, 20:56 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Maybe its personal bias but I have no problem with this whatsoever...anyone that donates money to an organization that literally only believes in hate gets what is coming to them. I agree 100% that the people that donate to groups that only support hate are the problem...
