Hallmark Changes

Dear Hallmark Executives,

I have been a faithful watcher of Hallmark Channel for decades. I loved the movies because I knew what I could expect. A simply, clean love story. Where boy meets girl and they fall in love.

Now, Hallmark is starting to put same-sex couples together in the movies. Like, for instance, "Wedding Every Weekend." This makes me feel very uncomfortable and sad. I know you want make people start accepting LGBTQ as normal, but I cannot and will not. And I hope and believe there are a lot of people out there like me who want a basic story between a man and a woman.

If you cannot stop, you should at least have a notification at the beginning that states, "Same-sex relationship included." Or, "Warning, same-sex relationship." If you cannot do that, then I will have to say "Goodbye" to my long tradition of watching the Hallmark Channel (that I have enjoyed for so long).

Thanks for listening.

Wedding Every Weekend Movie Scenes

I am a longtime fan of the Hallmark Channel and have watched it for many years. I am very saddened to say that if you continue to air movies like "Wedding Every Weekend" which aired on August 15, 2020 and included 2 females marrying each other and kissing mouth to mouth on screen, my husband and I will have to change our cable package to exclude the Hallmark channel.
I am EXTREMELY disappointed that you chose to ruin this movie by including scenes catering to the LGBT agenda. It is a crying shame and a sad day for loyal Hallmark Channel fans.

While your decision may gain you a few LGBT viewers, this will be at the expense of losing several thousands of your loyal followers and fans who love and support wholesome family programming.

Please reconsider your direction for future films if you plan to continue to be considered a family friendly channel with a large number of loyal fans and followers. I agree with others who have commented that there are plenty of other channels who offer the LGBT community the movies they want to see where their lifestyle is highlighted and celebrated.

content of movies,commercials

I have been a viewer of Hallmark movies for years, but if the trend for the inclusion of LGBT content and characters becomes a part of their movies and commercials, I will ban the Hallmark channel from my viewing time. I was crushed recently when I viewed "Wedding Every Weekend" and saw two lesbian women kissing and marrying. Hallmark's claim for "quality family entertainment" is ruined and so was my viewing pleasure. I am disappointed in Hallmark for condescending to a small minority who have abandoned traditional, Christian family values. Hallmark will lose a large viewing audience if they take this route.
I have also noticed the advertisement of and increased use of alcohol by the characters in their movies. As a nation of people battling alcohol addiction, why is a channel that still features the traditional Christmas carols and message of the birth of Christ, promoting and encouraging the use of alcohol in so many movie scenes and commercials? Now Hallmark will be selling alcohol!!

Disappointed

I am so disappointed. This is the first time I have turned off a Hallmark Movie (Wedding every weekend) - very sad because I watch them all.

I hope your new demographic keeps you going because you may lose your existing customer base.

LGBTQ Programming

Why are you changing the wonderful Hallmark channel I have loved for years? Tonight I watched the first hallmark movie I disapproved of. Why would you do this when the LGBTQ community is not going to support your channels or your Hallmark stores? Your are attempting to accommodate a group that will never be satisfied until you have completely morphed into promoting their point of view 100 percent. Your brand was unique but now you are like all the other channels, so this is good-bye.
Tonight, I am removing the Hallmark app from my phone and Monday, I will return my Warm & Cozy Christmas ornament to the Hallmark store. Sometimes you have to boycott to stand up for your beliefs.

The downfall of a once great family channel

Dear Hallmark Representatives......
You blinked first and now you will lose the very people you once proclaimed as valued “family” members. First you tried to sneak in a gay male couple in Love Under an Olive Tree. When I realized how subtile their introduction was and how you almost got away with it, I immediately turned the channel. I don’t need to watch that kind of junk. Then tonight you decided it was the women’s turn to flaunt good values when you aired Wedding Every Weekend.
I have watched the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries or Hallmark Channel since its’s beginning. I watch either channel from October until January because Christmas means a great deal to me and my family and the values I grew up with were once mirrored in your movies and series. But no more. Even your ads have changed and they reflect your changing values.
If you even make one Christmas movie with a homosexual couple, you will lose millions of viewers.
You may not care about who you lose. You will see that the brief introductions you have already given them to feed their demands will soon not be enough and they will demand more.
You have lost me.....what a shame you can’t see or refuse to see what you had was more valuable than giving in to the new “cultural diversity” standard which is nothing but political garbage meant to destroy family values.

Turning Hallmark Off. Changed values.

Hallmark claims to promote being a family channel, but I am not watching anymore. I was watching a new movie and was shocked to see a wedding kiss that does NOT promote family values, but potical agenda and propaganda...how disappointing! I have been a faithful watcher of Hallmark for years and have never had to worry about watching these movies with my children...until now. I cannot trust this channel and won't support this new direction.

Hallmark Channel

I do NOT want to watch movies about homosexuals getting married. Tonight I started watching a few minutes after the beginning of the new Saturday night movie "Wedding Every Weekend." I didn't expect the plot to contain a wedding between two women. When I discovered that I turned it off immediately, in mid-movie.

I am sad to see that Hallmark Channel is sacrificing its integrity in order to indoctrinate people that wrong needs to be tolerated as "ok," or to condition people to accept immoral behaviour.

Until now I have been so pleased to watch your movies which have consistently been wholesome and in line with God's word. There are so few companies filling that need in entertainment. However, you have shaken my belief in your integrity.

I have never written a review of a television program before. But tonight's movie was unacceptable. I suspect that there are others who feel the same way I do. I hope you will consider the people who have been your loyal viewers until now, and not try to pass off wrong as right going forward.

Hallmark Channel

It saddens me to see the way Hallmark has let the world change them to offer the kind of movie that was showing tonight. As a Christian, the Hallmark Channel movies were the ones I thought we could trust, like Signed, Sealed, Delivered. Not anymore, you have made your decision. This world is falling apart and you aren't doing anything to help it. Only God can change hearts.

LGBTQ AGENDA

I have been a loyal viewer of Hallmark movies and I was totally disgusted tonight as I watched two women holding hands and I already heard that this platform was being forced down our throats. This has always been a family friendly channel and now I do not want my children or granddaughters to watch this. This platform is so far from what God designed for marriage. God designed marriage for a man and a woman, not two men and not two women. This is all about the almighty dollar. Please reconsider airing this agenda. Hold your ground and return to decency. Children are watching, but more importantly, God is watching.

DON't CAVE TO LIBERAL BULLIES!

After having a close and in many ways exclusive relationship with you for the last 5 years, we have decided that it is time to part ways. You used to be a faithful friend, someone we could depend on, when almost all the others were questionable, until your recent decision to join “the pack” and run in the same questionable direction. And WHY did you decide to go in this new direction? To please a handful of people who probably “courted” you just to get you to let them control you and take you down all in the guise of “inclusiveness”!
The likelihood of this becoming a long term relationship with them is VERY questionable. You are losing us, and many of your other “suitors” just to go down a path that will probably lead to your eventual demise. What a shame! You are getting in line with people who will bully you until they have ruined you! Look at what happened to the Boy Scouts of America and that is you, once you have lost your faithful supporters!
You recall what happened to the Boy Scouts when they caved in to the Bullies on the Left, they lost support from those they depended on the most, as scouts left to join together to form other groups they could trust and the groups that hosted them left them host-less to fend for themselves, as well as bankrupt financially!
Do you really think these people care about your success?
Don’t be fooled! Their purpose is to get you and all the rest of us to fall in line with their wrong-mindedness, as to think any differently than they do is what they call “intolerant”! They can’t tolerate any one who thinks differently and therefore THEY are the intolerant ones! The word “Lemming” comes to mind! To them, we don’t have a right to a different opinion than they have or we are not “politically correct".
If you are going to insist on letting them lead you off this “cliff” like the Boy Scouts did, you can count on losing those faithful supporters, like us, who have made you such a success until now!
You say you want to “create a Hallmark experience where everyone feels welcome”? Families too? You cannot create such an experience because only the handful of those who you are trying to please, will feel “welcome”, and you will become just like nearly all the other stations, catering to the Left, with the movies your faithful fans have been avoiding!
We are so sad to break up with Hallmark, but we will be joining thousands of others in boycotting your company over this very poor decision of betrayal! We are cancelling our Hallmark Mysteries and Movies channel as well as our Hallmark Drama! The further you go down this road, the further you will find yourselves losing like the BSA! It’s amazing what damages poor choices can cause us, sad to say! In time, we bet you WILL regret this!
We hope someday, you will realize that by caving to these people you have lost something priceless, people’s trust. Wholesomeness is something rare and much needed in this world today!
PLEASE RECONSIDER this decision!

Hallmark Channel..No more!

Couldn't agree more with some of the other complaints about Hallmark's new agenda. The channel/programming has been a source of inspiration, a place of decent and entertaining movies with traditional family values. Sadly, like many in our society, Hallmark has 'caved' to the liberal agenda and the 'alphabet soup' (lbgtq..et.al) ideology. Looks like we'll have to find another channel.

homosexual movies

I have a homosexual son. It is wrong. It tells you in the Bible it is wrong. It is against my religion. Hallmark are the only channels I could watch without having homosexuality and bad language. If you have homosexuals on your shows and go that far left with the liberals you leave me no choice and alot of other people but to drop your channels. What a shame this will be SHAME ON YOU for not having a backbone. In the Bible it says all people will stand before God and answer for what you have done here on earth. That means you too.

Lets keep it Wholesome

I am a long time hallmark channel viewer, I have bragged on this channel many times over and love to watch good clean tasteful movies with awesome actors displaying a male and female relationship. Hallmark has always been my go to channel. My family and I never had to worry about seeing or hearing things that goes on with so many channels that are Not family orient. Please don't take away your Greatest Quality, Your Best features that represent who you are and what you stand for. Please DO NOT destroy your GOOD reputation by trying to be like some of these other channels. I was deeply crushed when I heard about the movie you are suppose to be showing. Please Don't TAKE Away my Right to give it to someone who say they have a right.
They have so many other channels they can turn to and tune in for that. Step out on faith and don't allow this to happen. You have so many viewers that will join in with you to take this bold stand. Do Not lose your audience for something that can be prevented. Thank you so Much!

LGBTQ

I can't believe that conservative ideology has lost our last remaining network. EVERY network, show, movie, book, magazine promotes LGBTQ agenda! The percentage of folks in that community is in single digits but is very over represented in media, by a long shot. Hallmark channel was the only refuge from liberal indoctrination. We had noticed subtle changes prior to this. Like removing the pastor, and church services from When calls the Heart. Why oh why can't we have 1 network that doesn't succumb to the liberal Gestapo?? How many people consider themselves religious compared to how many are LGBTQ? Media representation for those with religious beliefs are either non existent or made out to be radical nut cases. We have nowhere left to turn. Other than to turn off the TV.

Throwing away what makes you stand out

Dear Hallmark. Up till now, you have made a name for yourself 'The Family Channel'. We could leave the channel on with our children and not worry about nasty commercials, ugly language etc. You have changed that now. Last year you made so many people proud!!!! Your LOYAL viewers!!!! Do you honestly think the type of people who are 'diverse' are going to be faithful viewers of your channel??? Unless you start adding filthy language, ugly scenes, sexual scenes, etc. they are not going to be happy nor are they going to want to be a loyal viewer. Your morals and standards are what has set you apart from all of the other channels....now that changes? What will set you apart now...NOTHING you will just be another channel that plays immoral movies, you have given up what makes you stand out!! Up till now you have captured the hearts of the wholesome American family and we love you. You have been wonderful... we have literally watched every movie you've made and have many on DVR. That will change if you let this movie air on August 15. I understand you have already put the money into it and cannot just cancel it. So here is an option, cut that scene out, or wedding rather. You have made a seriously bad choice. Actually if we wanted to take this further we could open a law dispute, as you claim yourselves to be a 'clean family channel'. A clean family channel does not include these kinds of scenes. My heart aches as my daughter and nieces love this channel. This is one of the high lights of Christmas, is your new Christmas movies that come out each year. PLEASE fix this!!!!!

Gay Movie Release

WHY HALLMARK? WHY? Once your LGBT movie airs, I will cancel my subscription to the network. It seems everyone feels the need to be PC in this pathetic culture. Every show on cable and broadcast TV has, at least, one or more LGBT+ character/relationship which we have to explain to our not mature enough children. Why then, does every single network have to have LGBT+ programming when they consist of less than 5% of our population. We have enjoyed your movies because they are moral and correlates to the principals with adhere to in our home. For Heaven's sake: YOU avoid kissing on these movies, and NOW you want a gay couple to marry? It is antithetical to your previous standards. I am deeply saddened by your choice to lose so many viewers in order to appease this society.

Movies too much a like

My main complaint about your Hallmark Movies that all the actors and actress need to have their makeup and hair redone. Most of the women look terrible with uncut hair and not brushed. Makeup is horrible too. The don't even look good period. They have dog eyes and shows too much teeth. Unbelievable. Plus wearing those big high healed shoes. Come-on. You have to have a budget for Makeup people and stylists. Most of them are not even good to look at. Get better actress or do something about how the look. I could name the actresses, but just look at the movies and you can tell right away. And Please change the story line a bit, they all end the same way. I know I'm not the only one the feels this way.

Cancelled DISH Heartland Package

Due to Hallmark Channels' betrayal of the majority of American families and yanking away a safe haven for family viewing, I just cancelled my Heartland Package with DISH Network. Why should I fund an organization - Crown/Hallmark - who has caved to the "Woke"/"Cancel" culture. And forget about paying $10 for a greeting card or other expensive trinkets - I have been buying your products because I supported your vision. Let just say one last thing to the Hallmark Channels...cow towing to the LGBT community is never enough for their progressive agenda. Every single show on cable and broadcast TV has, at least, one or more LGBT+ character/relationship which we have to explain to our not mature enough children. Why then, does every single network have to have LGBT+ programming when they consist of less than 5% of our population. What a tragedy that of the few bastions of morals in broadcasting has folded on LGBT+ pressure. BTW, just in case you are wondering what the "+" represents, just check out the North American Man/Boy Love Association's site (which has non=profit status in NY). That is one of the many heinous directions the "+" is going - it is a slope onto which you now have joined the enemies of the family.

commercials / shows

I'm not sure what Hallmark is trying to prove, I watch hallmark literally 24/7 I'm very upset about some of the commercials your running. I don't watch any other T.V, news, movies, etc. just Hallmark. The Hallmark channel has always been a family channel and I've enjoyed all the movies and shows you play. Unfortunately, the last few weeks I've noticed 1) you took the golden girls episode of the Black in laws meeting the girls for the first time off the air and won't show it, that was not in any way rude or racist, you took it down to agree with a political agenda. 2) You play an old Navy commercial that (THEY SAY) supports all people, I think you need to watch it a few times, It does not, again supporting a political agenda, BLM, and LGBTQ. I didn't see anything about supporting "Law enforcement" the brave men & women who put their life on the line everyday or again is it a political agenda. Amazing. Now on 7/30/20, I see another commercial with a woman who says she's black several times...Ya ok and? I don't understand why. Can't you just keep the politics off the hallmark channel? Although you can probably care less. If I continue to see these kinds of commercials, and shows being taken down because some think it's offensive, I will no longer watch the Hallmark channel.

Don't Give In

It is obvious that times are changing. However, not necessarily for the best in many cases. God has been taken out of schools and look what happened. Our country is in chaos because a few people have decided they know better. My husband and I have watched your channel for years and always look forward to good, clean entertainment. We have enjoyed all of your shows, whether they be Christmas, The Good Witch, a romantic show, etc. We knew we could count on an entertaining hour. If a show does not interest us, we quit watching. After all, it would be a funny world if we all thought and lived in the same way. However, if you give in to the minority who want to make changes to your format, then I guess we will have to rethink our watching your shows and buying Hallmark Ornaments and cards.I do not want to see men kissing men, women kissing women. Anyone who wants to be in that type of relationship, that's their business and fine if they are comfortable with it. But many people are not. Why does the minority get to make the decisions for the majority? I thought you were a wholesome channel who believed in God and I would be disappointed to learn otherwise. Please pray earnestly before you make any drastic changes to your programing.

"Moms" LGBT

I am a Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother and I find the complaints and potential boycott of Hallmark Movies ridiculous, narrow minded, insulting, and refusing to see the current world we live in. Years ago I had discussions with my own sons when the first one realized a high school classmate was gay. We all talked about it, I explained it as well as I could, but stressed everyone is free to love whomever their heart choses. It might not be their choice, but they were to respect any choices an individual makes. This is what makes us all part of America. We all different in many different ways be it religion, our nationalities, our political views and yes, the right to love whomever we choose. Wake up "moms" this is today in America

Caving to the LEFT

Hey Hallmark, The reason you are so popular and loved is because, the left has 100s of channels they can watch and be happy. Conservative audiences (which is at the least is about half of the country) only have YOU. Half the country can only watch you and know they will not be made to feel physically ill. If you cave, I will get a Pure Flix subscription immediately and boycott your channels and all of your merchandise. HALF the country has ONLY YOU. The left has ALL the OTHER channels. DO NOT CAVE. Entertainment is about an escape, not having the LEFT shoved onto you.

And yes, I haven't been able to watch you the entire month of July because you will only air Christmas shows. That's absurd.
