Good Christian Bitches!

That's the name of a new ABC pilot show. The show title has religious and women’s groups up in arms over what they describe as an extremely offensive and distasteful show title. A Christian publisher  told FOX 411 that the show taglines “For Heaven’s sake, don’t let God get in the way of a good story!” could put Christians in an unfairly bad light. The publisher stated that she find the title offensive. I don’t think those two words should be combined,” she said. “A show like this can damage perceptions [of Christians in this country].” A spoke person  from the Women’s Media Center said Christians aren't the only ones who should be upset. “It is not an appropriate term to use to describe any woman, regardless of their faith.

 I will agree it's a ugly title name  for a show. But I also think when Christians jump on offensive or controversial books, films, and shows we  inadvertently just end up playing into these promoters’and publishers' hands. What do you think? Do these promoters’and publishers' do this to draw attention to their product?  Do you think they should change the title?
