    Default GCB: A TV SHOW YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GCB_%28TV_series%29

    I intend to find out who its advertisers are no matter how they try to pretty up the name or the mockery behind it and boycott them. Enough is enough and this show is over the line.

    I think the only way to find out who the advertisers are is to watch the show.

    I can record it, check the commercials and fast forward through the rest. I really don't like to take anyone else's word for things like that. That's one of the reasons I wanted to check out the show myself first before believing the hype. I've found in the past that christian objections to some things have turned out to be unsubstantiated. Jumping before we're bit does no good, only harm.

    One is or was Philadelphia Cream Cheese. Not sure if they are still sponsoring or not.

    But here's something to think about, is this how the World, not just Hollywood, thinks American Christian's are? If so, we need to look at how we live are lives and how are lives reflect Christ to others.

    Philadelphia Cream Cheese (Kraft), Target, Mentos (Perfetti Van Melle), Chef Boyardee (ConAgra), and Hellmann’s (Unilever). Supposedly these are some of the sponsors. Again, not sure about Philly, based on what is being said out there. Also, Verizon maybe another sponsor.

    Yea, I used to love Target but now they just seem like they're trying to be sort of high class and hip at the expense of higher prices and smaller selections.

    Mocking christianity seems to be a fashion nowadays.... people like to point out hipocrisy on others while they ignore their own hipocrisy.
    For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
    Isaiah 55:9

    “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck,
    write them on the tablet of your heart.Proverbs 3:3

    I think the thing that bugs me most is that no one would DREAM of mocking any other faiths so openly. It's extremely prejudicial.

    Here's a comment given by an atheist, Dianna Narcisco in regards to mocking Chrisitianity:

    But it seems making fun of Christians is just fine.

    "And that's right. They're right. The best candidate for satire and humor is the one who has the most control, the real power, and is the most hypocritical. And in the United States, that's the Christians."

    Basically, she states that because Christianity is not a minority religion, that it's okay to mock. However any other religious or antireligious movement, such as atheism, muslim, etc, are not okay to mock.

    That's the most hysterical comment in the quote. Pot...kettle..black.

    I and my family are boycotting the show. And yes, I noticed how you won't see these people making fun of other religous groups, but Christians they enjoy picking on. I didn't know so many companies were sponsoring that show.

    I think "hypocrisy" is the most common argument from non-believers about christianity.

    The truth is, we all know there are hypocrits in the mix. The truth is also that there are hypocrits in pretty much every faith, are there not?

    Just seeing the promo for this show offends me. I'll be emailing my displeasure to the sponsors.
