TV Series Mocks Christians, Undermines Liberty

ABC-TV has decided that it can take direct aim at Christians with what amounts to hate speech. This is the premise of its new program GCB (which stands for Good Christian B*****es). We need to fight back.

This program ridicules Christians, Christianity, the Bible, and Christian symbols in ways that would be unthinkable if aimed at any other religious group. For example, in the official Facebook page for GCB it said that “cleavage will help keep your cross straight.” Can you imagine the reaction in the Muslim community if that kind of message (complete with a highly suggestive photo) would have been made aiming at a symbol of the Islamic faith?

Here is why this impacts homeschooling. There was a decision of the Supreme Court of New Hampshire about a year ago affirming a decision to take a girl out of homeschooling because this method of education had the impact of advancing the girl’s Christian faith. The government of Alberta, Canada, is trying to force Christian schools and homeschools to affirmatively teach the moral equivalency of homosexuality—and specifically forbidding any instruction that homosexuality is sin—during the school day.

These decisions are being made because it is becoming publicly acceptable to demean Christianity. Our freedoms go with our faith. If they can attack our faith, they surely will attack our freedom. There are law review articles which I have written about in the past with law professors at major universities arguing that homeschooling should be eliminated in the United States because it is necessary to teach our children tolerance.

These anti-Christian homeschooling arguments are a subset of anti-Christian hate-speech and bigotry. We need to stand up and fight back.

I am posting a list of all of the sponsors of this program. But please start your protests by contacting ABC Television with an email. The link is provided.

Wal-Mart was originally listed as a sponsor for GCB, but the retailer has since clarified its position. I talked to a press representative for Wal-Mart Tuesday. They informed me that the ad which included Wal-Mart on this highly objectionable program was placed by one of their vendors rather than by a direct purchase by Wal-Mart. She was unable to clarify whether Wal-Mart had participated in the cost of the ad, but promised to check on that for me. She also indicated that Wal-Mart would not be advertising on this program in the future. We very much appreciate the cooperation of Wal-Mart and their appropriate response.

Thanks for your action.
