Boycotting

It's a sad day when the ONE safe channel that says they have traditional American values and is family friendly (for all ages) has decided to jump on the LGBTQ train. I hope losing the majority of your viewers and customers that have ABSOLUTELY 0% interest in viewing this kind of material is worth it!

commercials

Thank you for taking away channels I can watch. I have always enjoyed hallmark but will no longer be watching it. It may almost be 2020 but the Bible has never changed and sin is sin. It was nice having a family channel you could watch but that is no longer true. Shame on you for giving in to this stuff and feeling you need to do it for profit from certain companies, You would have been smarter to have not made commercials on controversial subjects. I don't appreciate having this stuff shoved in my face all the time.

LGBT support

My wife and I greatly enjoy watching your channel as it is a break from the constant in your face gay agenda. Now you have joined with the LGBT organizations and we do not know when we get blasted with visuals that we would rather not see. I personally don't care what people do, but I don't like it rammed down my throat. It would be wise to remember that most of your viewers feel the same way and most likely will not complain, but just stop watching your channel. As a matter of fact this is the first time I have ever voiced a complaint such as this. It is sad to see that the Hallmark Channel has given up on its values (and those of most of its viewers) and taken the kool-aid that other companies swallowed. It is your company and you have the right to show whatever you want. I have the right to not watch your channel and will do just that.

Christmas Shows

Why are there so many new Christmas shows. I remember so many past ones on Hallmark that aren't shown anymore. I would prefer some of the past movies to all these new ones which are really just the same story over and over with different players.

Velvet Mafia

You caved to 4% of the population and threw 78% under the bus. You want to be like the cool kids now? You think they are really going to watch your channel?

You were our channel. Now you're nobody's.

Conformity to abominations

I am absolutely disgusted with what I just read about Hallmark. First off I must say that Hallmark and TCM along with Dodger Baseball are the ONLY things I watch on TV. As of now, I will no longer be watching Hallmark. I will also no longer shop in the Hallmark store, nor will I purchase any Hallmark cards no matter where they are sold. I will also not knowingly purchase from companies that advertise on Hallmark and I will notify them as well.
This is my justification: it is against my principles and beliefs to watch sinful, unnatural, immoral and abominable shows. It is not that I do not love, care and pray for those who are risking their eternal lives but that I do not need to support nor be inundated by those ideals. Why has this world given in to the small minority of immoral people who want to influence us to accept what is wrong and unnatural? I cannot believe that Hallmark would kowtow to sinful and abominable ideology.

LGBTQ content

I am so saddened to be writing this. Hallmark Channel has been my family's "go to" channel for clean, wholesome, and uplifting shows to watch in this dark world that we are living in. We especially loved the special Christmas movies, where the word Christmas could be spoken aloud. Now, because of a very small (if they even watched at all) group, you are choosing to make a decision that will effect a HUGE group! I cannot judge the lifestyles of anyone other than my own, but I CAN make the choice to NOT support companies or products that go against God's Word. I will continue to love those that I know that are gay, but I will also continue to pray for them, that they will not keep trying to force their agendas on me. I truly believe the Hallmark Channel will see repercussions from their decision. I pray that the "powers that be" will be convicted by this decision. I am thankful that we still have UP Tv and Pureflix!

Merry CHRISTmas!

LGBTQ content

For years, my family and I have enjoyed your channel - especially during the holidays. It was a blessing to watch good, wholesome, family-oriented television and not have to worry if your young children or grandchildren were in the room. Now, you've decided to bow-down to a tiny percentage (if they even watched at all) of your viewers. I will no longer be watching or recording any of your channels content. We have UPTV and Pureflix and will pray that the "other side" cannot sway them. I hate that you have chosen this decision.

Hallmark and the homosexual agenda

I was disappointed recently to learn that Hallmark was planning to produce programming containing homosexual content. But then I learned that they had pulled ads containing such content; terrific, they are sticking with their family-friendly roots!

Then I learned today that no, in fact they have reinstated the ads, which will most likely lead to programming that follows suit.

I have enjoyed Hallmark cards, Hallmark commercials, and Hallmark programming for many years, but if I can no longer trust the content you desire to send into my home I must say, "Good-bye Hallmark".

Should you decide to return to the wholesome family values that Hallmark was founded on I will be delighted to return my patronage.

Endorsing homosexuality

I am appalled at your decision to reverse your decision to not promote homosexuality. It is disgusting that this group has so much pull and say over the rest of the world's population. Homosexuality is a SIN and should not be promoted yet here you are bowing down to a very sick and perverse group of people who are demanding their sick and perverse way of life be celebrated and accepted by all. My home will not tolerate this ignorance. You have lost a very faithful customer, we have watched your channel for many many years. We enjoyed the FAMILY movies, especially during Christmas time. Now we will be forced to watch women having relations with women and men having relations with men. Absolutely disgusting! Guess you will cave to the pedophiles of this world too once they finally get their rights to be sick, disgusting individuals. You people have no morals and it's sad. You've lost close to 40 people from my immediate family alone, I can't imagine how many more you're about to lose. Y'all want to cater to the wrong things of this world and have no clue how much damage you just did to yourselves. Lots of complaints on here, if that don't show you how ignorant and disgusting your choices are, I don't know what will. We should not be forced to have to watch gay tv.... They want gay marriage, gay families, gay sex... They can make their own damn channels. Disgusted with you, will never watch your channel again

using gay people

I will no longer watch the Hallmark Channel because of your programming of gay couples. I believe that you have made a bad business decision, and you have certainly promoted a lifestyle that God calls an abomination.

Taking off the commercial and then caving and putting it back on

Respectfully Submitted....

I am so disheartened that I have to now stop watching Hallmark. I just cancelled Netflix because of their blasphemous show, The First Temptation of Christ. I am amazed that you really did do the right thing by cancelling the two women kissing commercial. Then you caved to a COMPLETE minority of people that probably don't even watch your channel. People really don't want to see two women kissing or two men kissing and it has nothing to do with being homophobic! I have gay people in my family. I love and accept them and have NEVER turned my back on them. BUT, and it is a BIG statement, I don't believe in their lifestyle. I have every right to believe what I believe. I love Ellen DeGeneres, but I don't have to approve of her lifestyle. 95% of people do not believe in a gay lifestyle. It's a fact and a fact Hollywood does not want to admit. There are channels for every race, religion and creed out in La La Land. Can we just have something that aligns with our lifestyles? I guess Pureflixs is the only answer. You are not helping anyones cause by having images that go against what the majority of society believes. There is no way to know what is coming up when we watch a show, or the commercials. I can only stop watching. A very sad day. Hallmark was always the one place that you knew would be happy and uplifting. The world is stressful enough to now worry about something on the Hallmark Channel. Goodbye Hallmark. Maybe it's a sign I shouldn't be sitting on the couch so much. Good Luck with being Politically Correct. We out here in the real world are weary from it all.

What happened to Family Friendly?

I was so sorry to hear of your unfortunate decision to give in to the non-family friendly views of the gay/lesbian groups. I've so enjoyed your channels and beautiful cards. However, I will no longer be watching any Hallmark channels or purchasing any Hallmark products. I'm saddened at the loss but I will stand up for the family and marriage as God meant it to be. Per one of the earlier messages, I will look for UPtv. I'm hoping your Christian actors/actresses have some say in your programming but if not, I hope they leave and find a new organization for which to work that shares their life views.

Hallmark caves for people that never have watched them.

Its idiotic of Hallmark Caving in and putting that Lesbian ad on when LGBTQ community doesn't even watch their channel at all in the first place nor does many Liberals I would beat on. So losing their base is a dumb move and someone should swoop in right now with a new conservative family channel and steal every Hallmark viewer. Really Dumb Hallmark, loose your whole base for 1% that never watched you in the first place, yep, real bright of you! And this is coming from a pretty liberal conservative with a Brazilian black wife and mixed children. Who would agree with everything I just said by the way because she is more conservative than I am by a long shot. Yeah, their are far more people that are on the very conservative side than just white country people so you probably should stick with your base of customers.

changing your content

My family have watched hallmark channels for years because of the type of entertainment you aired. Now, after having witnessed advertisements promoting lifestyles that are unnatural in their nature, I am seriously unwilling to stay with hallmark any longer.We will not tune in to any company who promotes violence, sex, foul language or immoral acts of any kind. We will also stop buying your products from cards to gifts. Nor will I purchase Crayola crayon products which I understand that you also own. You are betraying our trust in you and I will not support you unless you return to family values. It is such a shame that you don't have what it takes to stand.

future of Hallmark Channel

I have all the Hallmark Channels and found that I did not mind paying extra for them because it was a place I could watch and my family could watch wholesome entertainment. I am not on Facebook or Twitter! I have recently heard that Hallmark will begin pushing the LGBT way of life as "normal" and "acceptable". Millions of us do not want to see that. If it happens I will cancel all my Hallmark Channels immediately. I do not accept that way of life and will not have it shoved down my throat as "normal". I am only one of the millions who are not on facebook or twitter who will cancel your programming. It seems you only listen to the liberals on Facebook. My family will not be watching!

No More Hallmark for us.

How is it that this world has turned so upside as to what is right and what is wrong? It's because people and businesses are caving in to the 3% that think their "SEX LIFE" gives them any rights other than the right not to be persecuted or hurt for their choices. What is next, a commercial featuring a pedophile? My family will not be watching your channel anymore. What used to be a safe place for a family with children to sit and watch and enjoy is forcing parents to have to explain to their children things that their young minds shouldn't be exposed to until the parents decide it's time. We will teach our children according to what the Lord has told us in His Word, The Bible... homosexuality is wrong... I don't care which way you spin it. We love the people living this lifestyle but do not condone their choice of sexual partners. And by the way... GOD is real, the Bible is true, JESUS saves, and prayers work. Please pray for all people.

Hallmark - ZOLA Advertisements

Our family enjoyed the wholesome family programming on Hallmark Channel for years. We are disappointed you have sold out your conservative values and elected to re-insert advertising catering to activists and the agenda of 1% of Americans. We will no longer patronize your channel or anything Hallmark branded. Good luck with your decision.

Hallmark - ZOLA Advertisements

Our household has watched Hallmark Channel for years and enjoyed the wholesome family entertainment. We are disappointed you have chosen to re-insert advertising catering to a 1% minority of the USA. We will no longer patronize your channel or anything Hallmark branded. You have chosen to set aside your historical values to appease activists. Good luck with that decision.

Hallmark channel gay commercial

Very disappointed in your decision to air the gay couple ad! We have always enjoyed watching the hallmark channel because you had traditional family values. We choose to watch the hallmark channel because of those values. You can’t do both have traditional family values and gay lifestyles. We now will stop watching the hallmark channel because there is nothing special about it. The hallmark channel has become just another channel promoting lifestyles we don’t care to watch. You’ve damaged your brand.

Thank you

It's pretty sad that in the twenty-first century there are still people who think like it's the 1800's. Saying that your network promotes "filth" by airing a commercial that briefly features two women getting married is beyond belief, but when I read these complaints I see that and far worse. I personally know over a dozen families where the children are now adults and are LGBT. I knew the kind of hatred they had to endure for nurturing their children and allowing them to grow up to be the people they are, loving and caring, honest and respectful. I also watched my sister go suffer the same kind of bigotry when the man she decided to marry had a different color skin than hers. I'm glad you decided to re-air the ZOLA ads. I'm sick and tired of bullies. Thank you.

sexual deviant content

As a subscriber to the channel I wish to extend my disgust and disappointment with the recent decision to choose pagan satanic content over wholesome family oriented programming.

The religious cult you are supporting known as the Lgbtpxyz (p for pedophile) is nothing more than a way to stave off being sued. This shows a tremendous lack of fortitude and resolve.

You were literally the last channel that seemed to hold up right things and values and now you have gone the way of the spiritual terrorist by supporting sex pervert cults that are approved by the infamous church of satan organization.

The bible says you reap what you sow... or in heathen terms, what goes around comes around and I have a feeling that in order to satisfy this sex cult you will loose your shirt...

signed,

Unsubscribed and disgusted.

The downfall of Hallmark

Well good for you Hallmark! You made a decision to turn your backs on the audience that has made you very successful. How stupid is that? It is obvious now that your moral values are no longer in sync with your long-time LOYAL viewers. And I am sure your CFO is thinking "what the heck are you guys doing" but business and common sense has some-how given way to being in the current cultural PC club. How utterly ridiculous. Here's another one to ponder: by statistics the gays, etc. comprise 2-3 % supposedly of the population. However Hallmark's viewers are a smaller subset of the general population. And my guess is that the guys are a much smaller percentage of your viewers (or former viewers) so you have risked losing a large portion of your customer base to please perhaps less than 1% of those who might support you. That is truly stupid.

You brought your downfall upon yourself. Don't blame anyone else. Those who made the decisions will one day lose their jobs and who knows the financial fallout your corporation will sustain because of your decision which has now proven you were a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Enjoy your demise. I will not have anything to do with your channels, stores or sponsors and encourage everyone I know to do the same. We too can fight back!
