I saw an ad online for the new ABC TV show GCB (Good Christian B******) a few days ago, and was planning on writing a post about it. However, Michael Farris of HSLDA (Homeschool Legal Defense Association) has done the job for me. He is absolutely right, if this show were against any other group of people, the liberals would be storming ABC headquarters. They are so offended at what Rush said last week – where is the outcry against a show that has an advertising tagline of “the cleavage will keep your cross straight”? Here’s the first part of what Mr. Farris wrote:
ABC-TV has decided that it can take direct aim at Christians with what amounts to hate speech. This is the premise of its new program GCB (which stands for Good Christian B*****es). We need to fight back.
This program ridicules Christians, Christianity, the Bible, and Christian symbols in ways that would be unthinkable if aimed at any other religious group. For example, in the official Facebook page for GCB it said that “cleavage will help keep your cross straight.” Can you imagine the reaction in the Muslim community if that kind of message (complete with a highly suggestive photo) would have been made aiming at a symbol of the Islamic faith?
Please read the rest of his article and contact ABC and the list of sponsors he has provided.
note: The show is based on the book by the same name. ABC “in their head” changed the name of the show to Good Christian Belles, but anyone with a brain isn’t fooled by such pandering. Changing the name doesn’t change the content or intent.
