Why is Verizon sponsoring ABC's awful show GCB?

Message 1 of 21

I am unhappy that Verizon is a sponsor of the ABC television program GCB because of the show's intolerance toward Christians and Christianity. I would find it hard to imagine you sponsoring programming that would so directly insult members of any other religious group. I urge you to express your *tolerance* of Christianity by cancelling your sponsorship of this show.

Verizon Sponsoring GCB is Pure Offense ro All Faiths

Verizon's sponsoring of ABC's "GCB" is a direct offense to my faith and opens networks and sponsors-such as Verizon- to attack (or fund the attack of) any faith they choose.  Stop this as soon as possible!

I agree!  Maybe if more people complained about this show, it would be pulled from the line-up.  Interestingly, I can't give the original comment kudos.  It seems to be blocked.

GCB Extremely Offensive

The premise of this show is completely offensive to all Christians!  Would you even begin to support the same type of program about Islam?  I think not because you know the violent backlash you would get because of it.  Christians are not violent so you don't have to worry about that BUT we do have buying power.  Expect to be boycotted until you dumpyour support this show!!!

Oh brother, then don't watch. The bad show is going to have a very short shelf life anyway.

I don't know who you are posting to about "supporting the show GCB".  If you read the top of this forum it says PEER-TO-PEER (in case that means nothing to you your peer is anaother user).  Not passing judgement on you or the show one way or the other.

 

If you want to express your issue to Verizon try the Idea Exchange - BUT also keep in mind that the promoter of the show is ABC and its sponsors, not Verizon who only carries the network as required by the FCC.

If a forum member gives an answer you like, give them the Kudos they deserve. If a member gives you the answer to your question, mark the answer as Accepted Solution so others can see the solution to the problem.

Verizon is not going to censor the content of a network. you have a problem go complain to ABC. It just kills me that people like this scream and yell, well you know what don't watch the show and it will get canceled before you know it. The more noise you make the more people will tune in to see what the all yelling is all about.

 

Sorry I am a Christian as well and I find CENSORSHIP more offensive then a bad television show.

Which is it, are they SPONSORING as an advertiser or simply carrying it! It most certainly makes a difference!

You can't immediately give kudos on sign up, you have to reach "contributor" status first. (This is, I assume, to keep people from creating multiple new accounts solely to give themselves kudos.)

 

It looks like you have the required status now, so maybe you should try again.
