Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich says a new ABC television series is evidence that the entertainment industry harbors anti-Christian bias.
According to the Huffington Post, “Gingrich criticized the comedy-drama GCB which has also been called “Good Christian Belles.” But Gingrich is referring to the series by the name of the 2009 novel that inspired it, “Good Christian Bitches.” The series began airing last Sunday. ABC’s website describes the series as a “funny, sassy and heartwarming drama.” The former House speaker says no network would run a show with such a title if the word “Muslim” were used in place of “Christian.”
Gingrich says anti-Christian bigotry is considered acceptable by the entertainment industry but Islam is protected. He made the comments Friday at a rally in Gulfport, Miss.
