Those Sponsor Boycotts Can Work Both Ways

Yes, conservatives can play the same game:
After several Christian and conservative groups spoke out against the new ABC series “GCB,” Kraft Foods has pulled Philadelphia Cream Cheese ads from appearing during the show, TMZ reported.

The show is based on the book “Good Christian Bitches” and revolves around a group of catty, church-going women in a wealthy Dallas neighborhood.

Dan Gainor of the Culture and Media Institute called “GCB” a “sex-filled attack on Christians” for its raunchy portrayal of supposedly devout characters.

“Trying to find one bad point to discuss in the foul and hateful ‘GCB’ is like trying to find one individual liberal in Hollywood. You can’t. There are too many,” Gainor said.
Out of curiosity my wife and I watched the first episode. I don't think any further boycotts will be necessary because this show is so horribly bad I don't expect it to last very long. It's not worth wasting a boycott on.

Pick and choose your battles well, as boycotting can make creeps look like martyrs.

Ignoring the creeps relegates them to the trash-heap where they belong.

Just tell your friends. And write the sponsor that you are disappointed in them.

I wrote to ABC and told them I wouldn't waste a minute on the program and wouldn't support it's sponsors.
