Controversial Ad and unbelievable disappointment

You are now political...we are done! We never expected Hallmark to cave to "The Left.". I am not religious and honor love between two people. It is just that in my opinion we need to tread a bit lightly on how we raise our kids and what we show them on TV at an early age. Thanks for taking away the only sweet channel that we can find for both kids and adults during the year!!! If you cannot see the current trend away from leftist behavior...so sorry for you! Still unbelievable!!!

Family Programming, NOT LBGT

You just couldn't leave it alone, could you? Now, you guys may have set a new record for sheer speed of spineless position vacillations by a corporation. The whole thing was and is pathetic.
Here's the deal: We used to choose your channel for "safe", family-friendly, feel-good programming so we don't have to explain sexual content to the kids. We don't want to see sexual content, whether it's straight, gay or whatever, either on your programming itself or on your advertising. If you are going to be just like all the other trash on TV, you will lose enormous numbers of viewers. You will lose even more for not deciding what you believe in and sticking to it. We trusted you to be one of the few places of refuge on TV from moral decay. You have broken that trust. Then changed your minds. Then instantly caved in to pressure and changed your minds again. Pathetic. I'm done with you. Really bad move.

Boycott Hallmark

The main audience base for Hallmark is Christian or wholesome families. There is no way the gay community outnumber us therefore you will be losing the majority of your viewers. With a lot us cutting cable we now have streaming options. Hallmark will not be one we choose. Shame that a good network was bullied by a group of people who do not even watch them.

Good-Bye Hallmark

In the past, I have always loved the Hallmark Channels. It was refreshing to watch movies (including commercials) that did not need to be monitored for content or language that detracted from the story or were offensive to the usually silent majority watching these channels. However, Hallmark CEO has now chosen to cave by reinstating commercials with LGBT content and also stating openess to movies soon to follow. By falling in line with the rest of Hollywood to help push the gay agenda, as of today, I am now boycotting everything Hallmark and encouraging everyone I know to do the same.

A few online comments, probably from LGBT people, have said they see nothing wrong with the Zola commercials. I looked up statistics showing that population numbers that are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender worldwide represent ONLY 1% to 6% of the TOTAL population. This minority group is pushing an agenda to make their practices acceptable as part of the mainstream lifestyle. They can't do that by pushing their practices onto the majority of people in the world who believe a marriage is between a man and a woman. The major flaw in the logic of LGBT lifestyles is that without the traditional family, they would not even be here to push their agenda!

As a Christian, I believe Jesus loves sinners but hates the sin. I don’t have to bring this stuff into my home via TV. With only a few monitored exceptions, my family has stopped going to movie theaters because most films are so trashy. The silent majority is extremely tired of being ignored, and statistic percentages are against you, Hallmark. Enjoy “boiling the frog” with the rest of Hollywood as you join them in trying to make this lifestyle acceptable. Good-bye Hallmark!!

Wonderful Inclusive Ad - Thank you!

It isn't a complaint, it's a good for you! Thank you, thank you, thank you for being inclusive and reversing your decision. I will proudly watch the Hallmark channel. I'm very grateful to you for recognizing that inclusion is the only way to be.

THANK YOU!

AD

I am so disappointed in the Hallmark Channel for airing the "wedding" ad with two brides kissing. I was ready to subscribe to the live stream app to watch only Hallmark wholesome programming with my family but will definitely not subscribe now. The LGBTQ community is a small minority in this country compared to the families who do not want this programming thrown in our faces on every channel. Hallmark was the only safe channel we could watch as a family with no cursing or inappropriate content and if you continue down this path you will lose millions of viewers. This is a free country and they can express their lifestyle without having to indoctrinate our children and your company and its viewers. I have LGBTQ members in my family that I love but do not agree with their lifestyle choice. That is their choice just like mine wanting a family channel with my Christian viewpoints on marriage to be displayed for my family. I hope Candace Cameron Bure will end her ties with you because of this as well. It breaks our hearts that you would be bullied into changing your values by a small population that probably doesn't watch your channel anyways.

Apology for standing up for family values

I was so saddened to hear that you had apologized for standing up for family values and removing a same sex commercial from your television station. I am so sick of the liberal haters in this country trying to force all of us to abandon our Christian values and beliefs. As a Christian wife and mother, I take God seriously, when he tells me in Titus 2:5 to guard my home. I am vigilant about not allowing evil influences, including television, into my home to corrupt the minds of my children and grandchildren. Hallmark was one of the few channels I watched, because I thought they promoted my family values. It bothers me that the liberals have taken over almost every channel. Can Christians not have even one channel that we can watch? Are liberals the only ones who have rights? Jesus said in Matthew 10:31, But whosoever will deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father, which is in Heaven. Many Christians today are denying Christ, and giving in to the evil that is taking over our country. I appreciate Chick Filet, Hobby Lobby, and others who have taken a stand against evil, and refused to give in to the bullies. I am disappointed in Hallmark for not having the courage to stand with us. I am standing up for God, and my beliefs. I will not be watching Hallmark channel any more.

Really Hallmark?

You make money hand over fist getting young and middle aged women with families to watch your terribly written shows. They watch them because even though everyone knows the plot inside and out it is nice to enjoy something that is clean and uplifting. Mothers can leave the channel on with the kids watching without having to worry about answering awkward questions about girls kissing each other. Now you are removing one of the few safe channels left, encouraging further cord cutting from this demographic. Speaking of demographics, my wife and I are millennials (she's the primary Hallmark fan in my family, I'm just along for the ride) and contrary to what your marketing consultants are telling you there are a lot of millennials like us out there who do not want to see gay people kissing each other on every channel. If we wanted to see that trust me Hallmark is not where we'd go. Stay in your lane or suffer the consequences. Most of the people that criticized you for pulling the gay ad don't even watch your channel anyway. Those of us complaining now do.

LGBT problem

Hallmark was/is to be a "hallmark" - to take a stand, to have a position. I do wonder how far any company will go away from Biblical morals and values - yes, I did say Biblical. Without a "rulebook", just what does one base their values on - the shifting tide of society has historically and currently proven to be destructive so why not just stand firm - logic and faith over perversions based on selfishness.

Pedophile - If a group insists on lowering statutory rape to 8 years old, will you conform; zoophile - if a group insists that beastiality is acceptable, will you conform; Islam - if a group mandates that you support Sharia law, will you conform; so my question is quite simple, where do you draw the line because if you cannot draw a line, Then I refuse to support you (Hallmark) in any way - actually, I will be active in turning people from you.

Hallmark

NOT A COMPLAINT. BRAVO Hallmark for running the ZOLA ad featuring a lesbian couple getting married!!! Offended Hallmark watchers, especially the woman who thinks this will scar her TODDLER? We're NOT going away, we're not immoral, love is love. For you faux (fake) Christians, I guess Hate is obviously a family value. Shame on you.

Lost another veiwer

You will no longer be a family friendly network so change that on your website. I cannot believe companies keep bowing to the minority of people and risk losing the majority. You know that most of your viewers would not approve of this. We will no longer watch.

Please reconsider!

I am so sad Hallmark!
I feel like one of the last faithful few has fallen.
My children were not allowed to watch the Disney channel, so have grown up watching your channel.
I’ve never felt I needed to mute the commercials, or fast forward through certain parts of your programs.
We could count on Hallmark to be clean, and a safe place from the rest of the crazy world.
I am so sorry that seems to be changing.
I do ask you Hallmark to reconsider. I know you are in a very difficult place, but please tread carefully!

commercials

I am extremely disappointed that Hallmark is showing commercials of two women kissing. This is supposed to be a family channel. Why are you caving to satisfy the complaints of a minority of people? I don't want to see this kind of thing on tv and I most certainly don't want my kids seeing it. I won't be tuning in to your channel anymore.

Content

Please realize that 97% of your viewers do not want immoral content; that's why we subscribe to your channel. If you change the content and commercials you are going to lose the base that sustains your channel. We are not prejudiced, we are just looking for something that matches our preferences. If you lose us you lose your business. It's not good business sense to cater to 2-3%.

Gay movies

Come on Hallmark! You are helping young kids to be confused by seeing two women getting married and kissing. That’s one reason so many children are questioning what sex the really are.
Gay people use to keep to themselves now since they have come out of the closet they have to express themselves in public.
This gay stuff is just sickening. It’s hard enough explaining to kids
Why two people of the same senx are kissing on tv and in public.
Don’t get me wrong I have some gay friends but they act normal and not showing the are gay. They have even admitted that the Bible and God do not accept what they are doing.
God made man and women and expects them to be couples and have children the normal way if they can’t then they adopt. I totally disagree with gays adopting! Do they raise them gay? Also a scary thought if when the child gets older do they expect the child up participate with them?
This world is just sick and if you are going to put these gay movies on my family and friends will no longer be watching your movies!!

Saddened by Hallmark

I am so saddened see you have reversed your position on the same-sex marriage ads to now allowing them and I'm sure in the future movies as well. Its America, so in fact it is your choice to do so. That said, I will not be endorsing Hallmark any longer or watching any of their programs...definitely its disappointing b/c I've always enjoyed it...you've been a safe place for traditional families. More and more I find myself having to get away from TV in general b/c its everywhere, despite the fact that clearly the "majority" do not prefer its content. At the end of the day, this is not about individual people, its about something God calls an abomination. Love the sinner but hate the sin. No not just same sex marriage, but also other elements of immoral behavior like living together outside of marriage, abortion …. the list goes on and on...these are other topics you've done well to avoid. And no, I'm not judging, God did that, He judged me as well b/c for sure I do not lead a perfect or sin free life.....but there is a great difference between falling into sin, recognizing it as sin and doing your best to remove it from your life and then this...basically flaunting a behavior that clearly goes against God with no remorse.

LGBT Ads

As one of your previous complainants put it - you have caved to the world. It saddens me to see this wholesome family channel not have the courage to stand up to the pressure of this lobby. It is a loss for all of us.

No pickles no tacos

Never watched your channel but I know a few who do. It is a sad state of our current situation in this country that a few can bully you into changing your morals on programming. WEAK!

There are about 3% alphabets (LGBQRST). I bet a very small % even watch your channel. So WEAK.

You have made a grave mistake with your audience and Jeffery Epstein didn't kill himself.

Recently Decision re: commercials

I was extremely disappointed that you buckled to pressure and reinstated the commercial with homosexual content! My family has always been a big fan & frequently watched your channel but that will have to cease since you’re promoting & displaying sexual content that younger audiences should not see!
I think you should poll your viewers to see who is actually patronizing your channel! The loss is yours!!!!

Gay Activity

Hallmark, once a sanctuary as the rest of the TV world went mad, has joined the madness. Hallmark was the home of family-friendly, wholesome programming that we could trust with our children's eyes and minds. This turn to gay and perverted issues has made it unwelcome in our lives. I'm truly sorry Hallmark had bowed to radical thought.

Disappointed on your Zola ad reversal

I was very disappointed that Hallmark reversed their decision on showing the Zola commercial. This would have never been an issue if Hallmark would have stuck to their original platform and never aired it to begin with. The reason your channel has been successful in the past is because it was different from any other station. By changing your viewing material makes this channel no different than any other channel and does not give you a competitive edge. I hope Hallmark changes their decision and views on this topic in the future.

heterosexual issues

I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ANY ADVERTISING SHOWING ANYTHING OTHER THAN HETEROSEXUAL KSSING. THE NEXT THING YOIU KNOW WE WILL BE WATCHING NON HETROSEXUAL MOVIE CONTENT WHICH I DO NOT WATCH. I EVEN QUIT WATCHING SUPER GIRL WHICH I LOVED WATCHING UNTIL IT WENT OVER THE TOP. CHOOSE YOUR ADVERTISERS MORE WISELY OR LET THEM KNOW THAT ONLY CONTENT FOR HETEROSEXUAL SUPPORT WILL BE ACCEPTED. SORRY THE LGBTQ TARGETED YOU.
