Gingrich blasts 'anti-Christian' ABC television series

Newt Gingrich slammed the new ABC television series “GCB” Saturday, arguing it is an example of “anti-Christian bigotry” in the entertainment industry.

The series, which is based on the 2008 novel “Good Christian Bitches,” has come under fire from conservatives and religious groups in recent weeks.

Addressing a crowd in Gulfport, Miss., Gingrich criticized the show, a comedy that follows the lives of several wealthy women living in Dallas, Texas.

“Look at the new show that’s on that has the word ‘Christian’ in it, and I want you to take the exact name, drop out Christian and put in ‘Muslim.’ And ask yourself is their any network that would have dared to run a show like that and you know the answer is not a one, because anti-Christian bigotry is just fine in the entertainment industry but they have to be very protective of Islam,” Gingrich said, according to ABC News.
