Gingrich Claims New ABC Drama Is "Anti-Christian"

Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich says a new ABC television series is evidence that the entertainment industry harbors anti-Christian bias.
Gingrich is criticizing 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.
Gingrich made the comments Friday at a rally in Gulfport, Miss.

    People who live in Glass Houses.... Why is it that anyone who doesn't belive exactly like some people are considered anti-Christian, a bigot, or several other things? No one least of all a man like Gingrich has the right to call anyone anti anything. Last I knew this was a free country and we could say as we please, within reason, and had religous freedom also. The title of this show doesn't have words but 3 letters, which could to my knowledge stand for a lot of things. The show is about Hypocrisy, which Gingrich should know a great deal about, maybe this just hits a little to close to the truth for the guy.

    I watch this show and it is funny! I think it pokes fun at a lot of things. Sorry but I even know people who are like these. Most of us do. It is not anti anything. It is satire. Also since when has a man who had 2 affairs while married, divorced two different wives to marry two others an expert on what is or isn't Christian, Bubist, or any other relegion. Sorry but to me Newt is a hypocrite!!!

    I wonder if anyone remembers the crime dramas back in the 80,s and 90,s when hollywood deplicted Christians as nut cases, hipocrites and blowing up buildings. Now its 2012 and look whos blowing up buildings its the terrorists. Yet hollywood wont use the word muslim in front of the word terrorist why is that? Is it because muslims will retaliate look at what happened to David Letterman when he told a joke about muslims on his show. He was threatened with dismemberment true believers of Christ will forgive because God Almighty is judge. Hollywood is biased and anti Jesus because they are ruled by Satan he is their master so when Gingrich says their Anti- Christian hes not far from the truth in fact I would say their AntiChrist read 1 John.

    Can someone offer me a reason why anybody should listen to a thing that comes out of Gingrich's mouth? This clown has, single handedly, made a mockery out of many of the core beliefs of the faith he claims to care so deeply about. "Hypocrite" hardly goes far enough in describing him.
