Newt Gingrich: ABC's 'Good Christian Belles' Show is Anti-Christian

Gingrich refers to it by the same name as the novel that inspired it: "Good Christian B---hes."

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP/The Blaze) — 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 B---hes."

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.

This is the ABC trailer for GCB:
