New ABC show called deeply offensive to Christians

Catholic World News - March 07, 2012

GCB, a new television series based on a book entitled Good Christian B------, has premiered on the ABC television network, prompting calls for boycotts. The show will air under the book’s offensive title in Australia and New Zealand.

Promotional materials for the series portray the words “Love Thy Neighbor” above a woman in miniskirt choir garb. Additional materials on the web site GCB Confessions feature what appears to be a Rosary dangling from the show’s title and an invitation to “share your confessions” in return for a chance to win a GCB Kindle.

    Another indication of the decline of Western Christendom. Are there not enough nominally Christian/Catholic folk in the entertainment industry to stop these type of ventures before they even get off the ground?? That is the burning question?
