A parents’ rights group has hit out at producers ABC, calling their latest show ‘Good Christian Bitches’ an ‘affront to women’.

The Parents Television Council, who recently attacked MTV’s controversial new teen drama Skins, said the title of the new show denigrated women and attacked the world’s ‘largest faith’.

The show, which is based on a book of the same name, is still in its pilot stage

Bowing to pressure, ABC has since abbreviated the working title of the show to GCB.

PTC president Tim Winter said: ‘The ‘B-word’ is toxic and is used to degrade, abuse, harass, bully and humiliate women.

‘The ‘Christian’ element only adds insult to injury. Regardless of whether the title ultimately makes it to broadcast, ABC has publicly proclaimed its values and it has tarnished the Disney brand.’

Would ABC even consider another faith to denigrate?  Would they even consider a program title or a plot line based on ‘Bitches’ who were Muslim, Hindu, Jewish or Buddhist? I suspect not, and I certainly hope not.  So why the double standard.’
