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.
