A disappointed ABC announced Friday that Christian-bashing sitcom GCB will not replace Desperate Housewives next fall. Mark Delkin, who played "Christian" homosexual Blake, said, "Wow. I feel stunned and sad. We had an amazing ride…"
Yes, it's been amazing how such unprecedented anti-Christianity could have been pushed down the throats of "Christian" America for ten weeks with hardly a whimper of protest from major Christian leaders. It's also amazing how only a few thousand activists, by doggedly calling and emailing commercial sponsors, undoubtedly played a decisive role in the show's demise. Four out of five sponsors, clearly apprehensive of the controversy the show was generating among customers, chose not to advertise a second time. Thirteen national sponsors gave us definitive statements that their ads would not reappear.
GCB’s unique emphasis on the bizarre immorality and hypocrisy of most of its “Christian” characters did not resonate favorably with many, even among the young and liberal. As a result the series, finishing last in its category, was simply not popular enough to successfully replace Desperate Housewives. Did our protest influence GCB’s ratings? TVseriesfinale.com is conducting an informal poll asking that question and 52 percent are saying “yes.”
There is no doubt that our protest powerfully influenced sponsors to abandon the show, undercutting the economic viability of GCB next season.
Fulfilling my prediction of what, with God's help, a small Gideon's band could do, we gutted GCB of most of its sponsors. Such massive alienation made GCB the advertising "typhoid Mary" of the industry.
I believe that, above all other factors, God helped defeat GCB.
In my opinion, here are the crucial human reasons dashing ABC's economic hopes for a permanent GCB next fall:
Considering the boycott's huge success, some suggest NPN lead boycotts against other depraved television programs. I won't exclude that possibility, yet NPN's primary duty is to warn of the most dangerous present threats to freedom.
I have been very disappointed at response within the alternative right to one of the greatest threats to freedom ever to come before Congress, CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act). (See Who's Really Behind Internet Takeover Bill CISPA?)
Are lovers of freedom so weary from having worked against (and defeated!) the SOPA bill that they just can't muster activism to oppose more legislation that will take away internet freedom?
Leaders of the religious right, with vast resources and millions of supporters, clearly thought it was impossible to beat GCB and therefore did and said nothing. How wrong they were! Don't be similarly shamed by letting CISPA pass.
Gen. Washington's truly weary, ragtag, shivering, and malnourished soldiers fought battle and yet another battle to purchase freedom. They didn't give up. It's time for us to again take to the phones. Under no circumstances can we let a free internet be taken from us.

Yes, we will fight CISPA and the next bill like it and the next one after that. At least, I will. I hope you'll fight with me.
Hate crimes laws may make you a lawbreaker! Such laws, while claiming to promote tolerance, actually lead to the end of free speech! Powerful articles and NPN's new video exposé of hate crimes laws in Canada and the United States provide you with the vital tools necessary to combat this imminent threat to freedom. This video is especially important as acts of terrorism extend the power of "Big Brother" to monitor what you do, say, and think.

President Trump’s recent Executive Order IS THE TEXT of the Jewish ADL’s “Anti-Semitism Awareness Act, S852, recently rejected by the US Senate for Committee consideration.
24 Sep 2019 - EMERGENCY ALERT
“Anti-Semitism Awareness” Bill Worse than “Equality” Bill! Good news! The Christian-threatening, LGBT- promoting “Equality Act” could not face confrontation with hostile Senate Judiciary Republicans this spring. It went nowhere. Yet Democrats could still try to get it through the Senate Judiciary. NPN will sound the alarm at Truthtellers.org if it starts to move forward.

Call the Congress Hotline at 1-202-224-3121 and ask for a Senator’s office. I suggest you say: “Please don’t vote for the “Equality Act” S788. It will help end free speech for Christians making them criminals if they criticize Homosexuality”.

If Jews acquire full protection as a “protected class” in America it will mean that if a Jew complains to the government that he has suffered “acute emotional trauma” as a result of “anti semitic” discrimination or criticism of his race or religion he may prompt a federal investigation. If the government agrees, the defendant will have to retain the best lawyer he can find.
