Notes and Asides – ABC’s Assault on Christians…..

I only want to spend a little time on this because I generally think these topics get much more attention than they deserve.  I briefly want to comment on the latest assault on Protestant Christians in America.  ABC network recently premiered a new series entitled “G.C.B.” aka Good Christian Bitches.   For those who want to know all there is to know about this allow me to introduce the former Speaker of House and current GOP presidential contender the Honorable Newt Gingrich:

“Here’s to show you the biases of the elite media, look at the new show that’s on that has the word ‘Christian’ in it and I want you to take the exact name, drop out Christian and put in Muslim,” Gingrich said. “And ask yourself, is there any network that would have dared to run a show like that and you know the answer is not a one because anti-Christian bigotry is just fine in the entertainment industry but they have to be very protective of Islam.”

 By the way, if Mitt Romney is wondering why he can’t seem to close the deal on this nomination it’s because he doesn’t say things like Newt just did.  But I digress. Since Newt said all there is to say I want to address my comments to American Christians.

There is an old saying “You teach people how to treat you.” For far too long Christians have been too eager to merely go-along-to-get along and too eager to “turn the other cheek” when assaulted by the popular culture or media.  The same generally holds true for the Catholic church but they, at least, have a staunch advocate and fierce defender in Bill Donohue, the president of the Catholic League.  He is first on the scene when the Catholic is demeaned, slandered or mocked.  Where is the defender of Protestant Christianity?  Does he or she even exist?  As Newt said, in the United States of America, where we often tolerate even the intolerable,  there is one form of bigotry that is not only tolerated but encouraged and that is against those who worship Christ.

Just something to think about.
