LGBT

Hallmark..say it isn’t so. I am extremely disappointed in your recent change of heart in televising homosexual commercials and possible movies to come. Hall mark is known for Christian based family friendly heart warming movies. While every single television channel is airing movies with this content I was relieved there was one place my children and grandchildren did not have to view it. While I do not condone homosexuality I am not surprised every channel is showing that content. Isn’t it okay to keep one network that does not? Let the other networks conform to politically correct. Please please stay true to the company you have built and the audience that has always supported you. Let one thing stay sacred!!

Inappropriate content

I used to love the Hallmark movies and channel. If this channel wishes to show homosexual couples, then I choose to not watch this channel ever again. If someone gets offended by my comment, I don't care. Obviously, you don't care to offend others by exposing this type of immorality.

Changing content

SO sorry that you have reversed your position and caved in to the left agenda. We have enjoyed the family friendly programming and have never felt that the advertising was offensive until now. Your channel used to stand for "family entertainment" and "morality" ! Our choices for 'clean' watching have now dwindled even further. These issues shouldn't be forced upon those who don't agree with them.

LGBT content

My family and i have been watching the Hallmark Channel for many years and it has never disappointed us - until now. I have been a subscriber of the Hallmark Channel, but i will cancel my subscription in a heartbeat and not think twice if this channel adopts and supports the gay and lesbian way of life. It is so sad that this channel used to be the one channel that i could watch at any time and not worry about having my children in the room or offending my religious beliefs. Hallmark channel is SO worried about offending the LGBT community, but what about your conservative community, who is the primary source of your support/income?? I really hope you reconsider this decision and think about who you are worried about offending. This channel has been around for a long time and has been extremely successful over the course of the years and its continued growth should speak volume as to the type of viewers who SUPPORT your channel. I would love to remain as a supporter of your channel, but if you promote this, i will have no choice to boycott an encourage my church community , family and friends to do the same.Thank you in advance for your consideration.

ZOLA

I am sad to see that you have decided to air ads featuring lesbians kissing. I have watched Hallmark for years, and I pay for the subscription monthly. With it being a commercial, I cannot simply "choose" not to watch it as I can choose not to watch R rated movies or movies with violence. I do not think a channel that has stood for family values is the place for these ads. You are choosing to cave in to political pressure, when I am guessing the majority of your viewers are conservative in their beliefs. It is a shame, but I will no longer watch Hallmark since I no longer have the option to avoid scenes that conflict with my beliefs.

LGBT Dirt on you TV Channel

I have watched Hallmark movies on TV since I was old enough to do so. My parents are now deceased. I watched your shows with my own children, and wife. My children are grown now. I have never been so ashamed of your Movies, and TV channels. You have given in to showing nasty shows with LGBT stories. What filth! You have always been a decent family channel. I guess that is gone now. I will not be watching your movies, or tv shows anymore. I will not be shopping in you stores, or buying Hallmark cards. Hallmark used the term-" Only send the best", Your best is not the best anymore. You have given into the pressure of filth, and those who embrace such a lifestyle. You know better, that is why you pulled such commercials from you channels, BUT you retreated under pressure from those who seek to destroy the family, and family values. I hope you rethink this issue, and drop such filth, and nasty stories for your programs. Do what is right.

I cannot tell you how disappointed I am that you caved in to the 3% minority. What about your majority? You have offended us and you do not seem to care. Now what am I supposed to watch? If you aren't going to support us, then I guess I cannot support you. I am deeply saddened.

gay ads and movies

Im really disgusted and disappointed in your decision to show gay content in commercials and movies. This used to be a great channel with wholesome content you could enjoy with anyone at any time but now you have resorted to ramming this homosexual lifestyle down our throats. Wake Up! Not everyone embraces this disgusting lifestyle. And, NO, it's not ''normal'' just because you liberals want to believe it is!! Go ahead and appease your 2% audience and lose the rest of us. Stupid decision. Do you really think everyone embraces this stuff??? seriously???

Hallmark is the only channel I watch. Now what can I watch? So upset with you Hallmark, for caving in to the 3% minority. Don't you care about your majority? You have just offended us. If you don't stand up for your customers, then I will not stand up for you. I am deeply saddened.

Gay Marriage Ad

I am disappointed that the Hallmark Channel is compromising its traditional family format with a Gay Marriage ad. I seriously doubt people who condone this make up your principle target audience. You have lost me as a Hallmark viewer and store shopper!

gay ads and movies

I'm really disappointed in Hallmark for deciding to go this route with ads and movies. I'm really tired of this homosexuality being rammed down our throats. Wake up!!! Not everyone supports this disgusting lifestyle you insist on making "normal" when it is NOT! It was nice to actually have a clean channel that was appropriate for everyone but now you have decided to change all of that. It was refreshing that any movie that was on was wholesome and respectful in all areas. What used to be my favorite channel will be no more. It's too bad you have to give in to this and ignore your biggest audience and support such a small percentage. You are making a really bad decision and it's really sad you gave in as you did. You have lost me and my family and Im sure there are many more like me that feel the same way. So disappointing!!!

remove ad is correct move

I will be boycotting hallmark channel ,nor will I buy or condone hallmark in any way.I used to tell friends to watch hallmark because of its content including commercials, but no longer ! I loved the family series and movies and knew the channel to be a safe place for children even unsupervised .Young minds are easily influenced, especially what they see. Children are not able to understand relationships and sex. That's why hallmark was so good - no sex,no violence, no foul language,just good clean shows. I think you are going to lose more than you gain.Why not use a different ad company,one that stands with the character of the shows you present? You have bought into Hollywood and the celebrities who are trying to change social values starting with the very young! Shame On You ! Your first announcement to get rid of the commercial was the correct one !

Homosexual perverts/transgender freaks

Unlike the homosexual perverts and transgender freaks you are caving to, my wife and I actually watch the Hallmark Channel all year long. In fact, we watched the Cheerful Christmas movie last night. There is no faster way to lose us as viewers than to begin showing the immoral nonsense from the pervert/freak/queer community on your channel. Unless you reconsider, you are going to lose a WHOLE LOT of decent people as viewers. The perverts and freaks will may gain will pale in comparison to the moral and decent people you lose.

No longer FAMILY entertainment!

WOW, such a disappointment!!! Hallmark has been known for their FAMILY style movies. Our TV will no longer be subscribed to this TRASH. Sad a few could sway a huge company with so many viewers opposed to such junk! There are plenty of stations that show that trash!. Sad y'all have joined the lower ranks. Goodbye!

Programmed

So long Hallmark! You were a family friendly group of channels that we could trust. It is a shame that your leadership has no backbone to stand up for morality. It is with deep sadness and anger that my family and I have to tune you out. Please don’t do this to your customers.

Hallmark Channel

To Whom it May Concern,

You know, Hallmark Channel WAS the one that I knew I could go to to see movies that WERE based with morals and values. I held on to cable specifically for it!!! Cable is quite a lot of money, yet with all the shows that force sexual content (Hetero and Homosexual), swearing, killing, stalking, on and on, I felt like at least there is still Hallmark. You HAD so MANY people, so many, and yet, you are now just like all the rest. Even worse now. You took away what millions were running to. For what? Why do you think your channel was so popular? Where I work, it is predominately women who love to go home after and just decompress with the Hallmark Channel. Purchase your merchandise proudly. We loved the many great actors who WERE fortunate to be able to work for Hallmark because of it's once wholeness values. Whomever just made this decision, blew it big time. Again, you are no different now. You have lost respect, and are even worse than all the others. All we wanted was ONE network. Out of over a hundred channels that are available to us, to our children, we just needed one. You once gave it to us, and then took it away. What would we have seen next in regards to, let's take When Calls the Heart for example? Men kissing men, women kissing women during that era? It will probably be coming soon presented by the NEW Hallmark Channel. Thing is Hallmark, from all that I am reading in comments from many different sites, the majority of your viewership is now gone. This was actually the topic today at our place of employment. Number one thing that I kept hearing was, "That's what made Hallmark different."

Sincerely,

A ONCE grateful fan.

You caved

I was relieved when I read that you were not going to air the commercial showing a same sex kiss. I have no problem with the gay community. However your channel have always seemed to be Christian based. I am not judging the gay community don’t get me wrong, however there is a time and place for everything, and by airing this advertisement, you are going against everything you have built your base on. I was so disappointed when I read today that you caved to the pressure of political bull. You have based your channel on certain standards, so why back down, because someone complained. Well I for one am so tired of political correctness, I guarantee that no matter what a person says or does he will upset someone. So why not keep the standard that you built your channel on.....just my 2 cents.

giving in to pressure

Saddened by you giving in too pressure by LGBT. There are other ways to watch Christmas movies and I will be using that alternative. There is a larger viewer audience that you are turning your back on.

Unfortunately Hallmarks lack of conscious in allowing "alternative" content and commercials has driven me and my family away from watching their programming and buying their products.

Zola commercial/Hallmark programming

Cheers to the Hallmark Channel! I am so happy you will continue running the Zola commercial on your channel and have agreed to partner with GLAAD to broaden your programming. Families come in all shapes and sizes and it is so important that a channel that represents family values truly represents all families! Nothing shows better Christian teachings than reaching out to all with love and acceptance just like Jesus taught us. Cheers to you for upholding Christian values and not shrinking down to the bullies and haters.

Hallmark's LGBT Stand

As an avid fan of Hallmark TV for years, I find it very disturbing that I can no longer watch your channel anymore, because at some point there will be scenes including same sex romance.

I am not a hateful person, in fact my own family loves and respects those who have gone a different route then how our large family was raised, but I no longer have to support something I am not at all comfortable with. That is where thousands and thousands of people are now "drawing the line in the sand" and saying "enough is enough!" We don't have to support what we don't believe in."

Thank you all for the many, many happy years of watching movies that were, predictable, enjoyable and clean. I will be passing this onto my friends, so there will be no surprises for them as well.

Sincerely yours,
Kate Prado-

Disappointed in Hallmark Executives

I was and am so saddened and disappointed that Hallmark Channel is thinking of conforming to the sinfulness of this world. I watch Hallmark because it is one of the only clean channels left without curse words and filth that I am able to watch with my family. I cannot believe that your executives are thinking of caving to pressure from the LGBT community. They have pretty much infiltrated every other channel on television that I can no longer stand to watch. I will be cancelling my Hallmark subscription if you add "gay" or "lesbian" content to your movies. SHAME ON YOU HALLMARK! SHAME ON YOU for even considering such an abomination. What is this world coming to that we can't even count on one channel to make good, clean movies?

Halmark no longer supports my values.

I am a Christian. I will no longer be viewing either Hallmark Channel. This is a big deal for me, I was a long time fan and viewer. Guess I no longer will subscribe to Comcast since the two Hallmark Channels were main reason I was getting cable.
