AFA Pledges Advertiser Boycott of ABC’s ‘Good Christian B*tches’

by | Mar 7, 2011 | Charisma Archive

tvremotecroppedABC is preparing a pilot for a new series entitled “Good Christian B*tches.” A star, Leslie Bibb, has been chosen for the series, and the show’s executive producer, Darren Star, brought “Sex and the City” and “90210” to the small screen.

Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, issued the following statement in response:

“The very title of this new series is an egregious display of religious bigotry, prejudice and bias. Attorney General Eric Holder recently railed against ‘stereotypical thinking when it comes to public matters, but apparently ABC wasn’t paying attention, and is perfectly willing to engage in blatant and inexcusable negative stereotypes when it comes to the Christian community.

“There’s no chance ABC would approve a series entitled ‘Good Muslim B*tches,’ or ‘Good Jewish B*tches,’ or ‘Good Black B*tches.’ This is just more proof that Christians alone can now be targeted for the most offensive kind of bigoted discrimination, with approval from the very people who see themselves as paragons of tolerance.

“In fact, according to the left’s own template, this entire series is a hate crime since it singles out one group of people for vitriol and abuse.
“Yesterday, President Barack Obama said we must not ‘demonize’ the Muslim community. Well, Mr. President, how about calling on ABC not to demonize the Christian community?

“If ABC continues with plans to produce this series, AFA will call for a boycott of both national and local advertisers, and will urge viewers in every community to contact their local ABC affiliate to strongly urge them not to broadcast this toxic waste.”

American Family Association is a pro-family advocacy organization with over 2.5 million online supporters.
