It Takes a Church, expected to premiere on GSN during the Summer to tie-in with the third season of American Bible Challenge has gotten mostly good general remarks as a "faith based dating show" and "The Bachelor but better". One site is ripping the format.
The article mentions It Takes a Church as taking attention away from church and religion and more towards Hollywood, which I disagree with. It Takes a Church will take place in a church, filmed anywhere in the United States no less, and be handled while using religious-based help to guide one contender to the other.
The article also shows similarity to the It Takes a Church idea and ABC's The Bachelor. I really don't see this at all now and by the time It Takes a Church hits there airwaves, you can most likely really not connect much between both The Bachelor and this GSN Bible tie-in.
GSN describes It Takes a Church on its website as a show that visits a congregation from around the country every episode to surprise one unsuspecting single with the news that they are about to be saved from the dating world. In the end, a donation will be made to the church.
To me, the description sounds absolutely nothing like The Bachelor and similar to American Bible Challenge with a "charitable donation".
Well, there was controversy over the idea of American Bible Challenge but we all know that turned out well.
