It didn’t take long for conservatives to weigh in on the new ABC drama “GCB,” or “Good Christian Bitches” as it was once known.
The Daily Caller reports the show’s premiere episode Sunday sparked plenty of concern about how the series will treat its Christian characters in the weeks to come. It’s already pretty ugly, according to several sources who spoke with TheDC:
Now the show, which is characterized as “Desperate Housewives” goes to Texas, is being ridiculed by Christian and conservative groups as “a sex-filled attack on Christians, conservatives and Texans….”
Dan Gainor of the Culture and Media Institute told RadarOnline that the show is filled to the brim with offensive stereotypes: “Trying to find one bad point to discuss in the foul and hateful ‘GCB’ is like trying to find one individual liberal in Hollywood. You can’t. There are too many,” he said.
One plot line in particular that features a closeted gay man married to a beautiful, Botoxed housewife is especially offensive, Gainor said.
“The gay plotline is just one more way that the ‘writers’ who scripted this garbage can attack those they hate — and that seems like a long list,” he said. “Next time they should try less bile and something better than a ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ level script.”
James Hirsen, a Christian commentator, wrote on Newsmax that “the show is mottled with characters that are shallow, vain, and hypocritical while claiming to be true believers,” he wrote. “When one of the show’s moms questions the propriety of a certain cheerleading outfit, Chenoweth’s character informs her that ‘cleavage helps your cross hang straight.'”
