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.

Programming

Have really been enjoying Hallmark movies for a few years. Having them the whole month of July is too much. Maybe one week would be good. Also, just have the movies maybe starting at Thanksgiving? Oct 23 is over the top and makes them less special. And why not leave the regular programming on during the morning hours?

But this is a game changer. - “Diversity and inclusion is a top priority for us and we look forward to making some exciting programming announcements in the coming months,” he said referring to LGBTQ-inclusive movies. “We are committed to creating a Hallmark experience where everyone feels welcome.”
I would guess that this has NOTHING to do with inclusion and diversity, and more to do with money and cow towing to the woke liberals. This channel has been a wonderful escape from the deranged programming passing for family entertainment that has taken over. It will be interesting to see how much audience Hallmark loses. What a shame and a total letdown.

hallmark ditching morals and family values

I am a little late to the party I suppose. I kind of remember hearing something about Hallmark caving to the LGBT group a while ago but then I thought it backed off. My husband told me today they were going to start running movies with gays in them and it made me so sad and so mad at the same time. I haven't personally seen it yet but, if this is true and they do then I'm done with them. Like so many others stated this was about the only moral station left. I'm so sick of the sexual immorality being shoved down my throat. All this crap is desensitizing the public in hopes wrong becomes right. The sad fact is the youth of today believe it is okay. I think more people ought to be caring about what God thinks than what the LGBT group thinks. Please can't at least one station or corporation take the high road for once and not cave to this 1%. Why is it that the moral people of the world don't count anymore? Well, all I can do is pray for the lost sheep of the world and not support the places that that don't support our Creator and his Word. I will cancel my subscription to Hallmark as well. FYI, has anyone ever wondered why the LGBT group picked a rainbow as their symbol? Considering the rainbow was the symbol of God's covenant with the world. It feels like they are thumbing their noses at our Lord. Hope I'm wrong

LGBTQ Agenda On Halmark

I cannot understand for the life of me, why you people insist on promoting the evil, anti-God, anti-family, LGBTQ agenda on your channel. Those of us who are conservative Christians have spoken out, time and time again, how we do not wish to see this garbage on Hallmark! You have made it quite clear that our opinions mean nothing to you. You only care about pleasing the minority! Shame on you! These people, no doubt, will not even be watching the Hallmark Channel. Their goal is to destroy everything that is good and right and if that means destroying the values of a TV channel that at one time, was known for its traditional values, well, believe me, they will do it! The Left hates anything that has to do with traditional values. Please do not allow them to destroy The Hallmark Channel. This channel has been the go to channel for our family for several years now, because we are sick and tired of seeing all the Satanic filth on other channels. If the Left wants to see two men or two women kissing on the lips, they should just find another channel. But leave the Hallmark Channel alone! We conservative Christians are sick and tired of this garbage being shoved in our faces every time we turn on the TV! Please keep Hallmark family-friendly! Do not promote the LGBTQ agenda! It's destroying everything! Do not allow it to destroy Hallmark by featuring it in your TV movies!

Programming Change

I understand Hallmark Channel is planning on including LGBTQ programming in the future. IF this is so, then I totally disagree with including politically correct issues in family programming. There is nothing "progressive" in giving in to political pressure to groups that are opposed to good family programming. I watch hallmark and so do my grandchildren because it has "family-friendly" programming. If you do this to Hallmark, I will have no choice but to cancel my Hallmark package programming in protest of this change. There is nothing wrong in NOT INCLUDING what is nothing more than "sexual" content. Cowtowing to 2% of the population and ignoring the other 98% of the public is nothing mroe than weak-spined and cowardly! Saying this is not hate speech, but it is good business to provide programming for 98% of the public. The politically correct people are interested in damaging traditional values as they sat so themselves. Don't give in to this!! America needs good family based programming. We want it and desire it! Please give it to us!! Forget the politically correct stuff.

Heard about new emphasis

I understand that Hallmark is going to do LGBTQ programming in teh future. Hallmark is suppose to be a FAMILY channel, We do not need "politically correct" subjects on Hallmark. If you do this programming, you will be losing me as a subscriber. Programming for only 2% of the population just isn't good business. We all understand there are LGBTQ issues, but they should be left to political channels like CNN. They have no place on a family channel. I am disappointed that you cannot stand up to pressure from 2% of the population and ignore the other 98% of the people. It is time to stand up to these politically correct pressures. If you do not, then you will be like all the other politically correct channels that have little if any viewers. Americans are tired of political agendas showing up on their family programming! J. D.

Too much movie time!

No one likes watching a movie continously! Please put the Golden girls back on in the mornings and evenings at least by 9 pm. And I love Frazier. Please start it at like 11 pm. Schedule is showing Frazier starting back at 2 am. Also please don't let your new movie programming stop your showing the Golden Girls or Frazier! I can choose not to watch these movies but do not want to lose the shows I love to watch. I see many others that feel the way I do! Thanks!
