Hallmark Caving To LGTBQxyz Mob Is A Bridge Too Far

Have I mentioned that I like to watch Hallmark movies?  So, I will confess it now.  Yes, I realize that these movies are formulaic, much as the Harlequin Romance novels are.  There are certain Hallmark stars that show up time and time again because these people project the sort of personality the Hallmark movies typically want projected.  Lacey Chabert, Candace Cameron Bure, or even Ali Liebert, who is in real life a lesbian are stars on the Hallmark Channel.  But Liebert projects a normal character on television, and the reason  people like these movies is not because of the real life of the actors and actresses, but  because the movies themselves project an idealized picture of life.
If you’re a pious Christian mom who wants to escape into a universe where all the cynicism and immorality of modern life aren’t allowed, or if you want to snuggle up with your eight-year-old daughter and watch a silly movie without having to explain inappropriate content you weren’t expecting, the Hallmark Channel is about the only place left that will let you do it.
So, on the heels of the Chick-fil-a cave in to the LGTBQxyz mob, now comes the Hallmark Channel, caving to the LGTBQxyz mob as well, in a piece at The Federalist by Hans Fiene at For the LGTB Mob, Lesbian Ads On Hallmark Channel Are Just The Beginning.
On the latest episode of “Everybody on the Internet is Angry,” the Hallmark Channel found itself caught between a Christian rock and an LGBT hard place. After the network ran a commercial from online wedding firm Zola featuring a lesbian wedding, One Million Moms, a division of the American Family Association, “voiced its concern and gave Hallmark the opportunity to do the right thing.”
Hallmark quickly dropped the ad from its schedule, but after complaints from “prominent LGBT celebrities and advocacy groups” and the rise of #BoycottHallmarkChannel on Twitter, the network reversed its decision, with Hallmark CEO Mike Perry apologizing for the hurt the company had caused and stating, “Hallmark will be working with GLAAD to better represent the LGBT community across our portfolio of brands.”
The major point of the article is that the mob will not be content with taking most of the culture. No, even this small corner of the culture will be invaded, and you will be required to celebrate their perverse lifestyle. You will be made to care.
Once upon a time, you could watch a sizable chunk of network TV shows with your children without exposing them to programs that praised fornication (of both the heterosexual and homosexual varieties). Then the children of the sexual revolution got control of the writers’ rooms and the programming decisions, and now you don’t dare let them near a Thursday evening sitcom for fear they’ll contract HPV via satellite dish.
Once, you could take your kids to a Star Wars or superhero movie without being told you weren’t welcome in Skywalkerland or Iron Man Village if you believed homosexuality was contrary to God’s law. Not anymore. Once, you could trust Disney and PBS not to fight actively against the Christian beliefs you wanted your children to hold. Then Disney and PBS stuck gay characters in programs aimed at preschoolers.
While Hallmark may not be the hill on which Christians want to die, we will eventually have to speak out and resist the cultural invasion of evil that currently is on the march. Will you be on the side of God, or the side of Satan? Personally, I no longer eat at Chick-fil-a, but then I didn't eat there often anyway. Their food just doesn't appeal to me. But now I will not watch Hallmark movies, and that hurts. Still, I can not support the LGBTQxyz program. It is not that I hate gays themselves, I don't, but I can not condone their actions, and I will not celebrate the LGTBQxyz lifestyle.
But it’s important for all Christians not to miss the three-fold point. First, the LGBT mafia zealously desires to drive faithful Christians out of any space where they are welcome. Second, the LGBT mafia is proving to be ruthlessly efficient at carrying out this goal.
Third, the same ruthlessly efficient mob probably won’t be content to take away every metaphorical sanctuary we have and then stop short of seizing our literal ones. If they wouldn’t let us celebrate cheesy Hallmark Christmas without celebrating their sin, they won’t let us celebrate actual Jesus Christmas that way either.


  1. Sad that Hallmark caved to the minority crowd, but not all that surprising in many ways, I guess. Maybe, like Chik-Fil-A, Hallmark will now experience a drop in customer base, revenue as well as a decline in their viewership.

    Have a Merry Christmas, Wade.

  2. Dave, Thanks, and Merry Christmas to you as well, and if we don't connect before then, have a Happy and prosperous New Year.

    I don't know whether Hallmark will experience a loss in revenue, but they will certainly have one fewer viewers, which will please Mrs. PolyKahr fine, as she doesn't care for Hallmark Movies anyway. And no, I will no longer darken the door of the Hallmark store. Sad that they either didn't realize who was watching, or else thought they could violate these people's beliefs to gain a...what? 1% increase in viewership?



  3. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours, Wade. (A little early, but we're all going to be a bit busy the next few days. Best and Blessings to you always.
