Gin­grich hits ‘GCB’ for bias on Chris­tians

The Washington Times Daily - - Life - BY BETH FOUHY

GULF­PORT, MISS. Re­pub­li­can pres­i­den­tial hopeful Newt Gin­grich says a new ABC tele­vi­sion se­ries is ev­i­dence that the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try har­bors anti-chris­tian bias.

Mr. Gin­grich is crit­i­ciz­ing the com­e­dy­drama “GCB,” which has also been called “Good Chris­tian Belles.”

But Mr. Gin­grich is re­fer­ring to the se­ries by the name of the 2009 novel that in­spired it, “Good Chris­tian Bitches.”

The se­ries be­gan air­ing March 4. 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.”

Mr. Gin­grich says anti-chris­tian big­otry is con­sid­ered ac­cept­able by the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try but Is­lam is pro­tected.

Mr. Gin­grich made the com­ments Fri­day at a rally in Gulf­port, Miss.
