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.

content

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.

New direction

We love watching the Hallmark channels and movies because Hallmark has been the last refuge for those of us who are highly offended when blindsided with homosexuality while watching other networks. It was always a comfort to know that we could relax, enjoy the show and not worry about being confronted with objectionable content.

If Hallmark management feels the need to change their programming to be "inclusive" then there will be nothing setting them apart from the other networks so we will unsubscribe to all Hallmark channels and streaming services.

Maybe CEO Mike Perry should worry about the "hurt and disappointment" he will cause the majority of Hallmark viewers rather than the shrill vocal minority.

going gay

I have always trusted the Hallmark channel to be above reproach. I have always entrusted you to provide programming for which I can let my kids watch without having to worry about them seeing the trash that appears on most channels that play modern movies. I don't even have to tell you the things I'm talking about but in case I must; it's the recent references to gay marriage, homosexuality, and who knows what comes next. It appears that Hallmark will now become what other stations have long ago become.

I will now have to remove you from the list of channels that my kids are allowed to access on Dish Network. I can no longer trust you to help me develop moral character in my children......that my friends is sad, very very sad.

Discrimination by Hallmark

As a gay "Hispanic" American and God-believing spiritual individual, I am happy the advertisement with the same-sex wedding couple was NOT REMOVED. I am happy this attention is being brought to the Hallmark network because I wrote in last year regarding the lack of minorities on their so-called Holiday "real-life experience" feel-good shows. So, I already have a problem with the network not reflecting the true color of our world, so add this to the list of Hallmark discrimination. Most of the lead character stories seem to cast or follow White characters with minorities playing secondary roles and/or every once in a while a black family storyline. There are so many other families and holiday stories that should be addressed by Hallmark. One being the LGBTQ & Hispanic community Hallmark? As for the people who judge the world with such a long "morality" or "sin stick" - search your soul and work on being a more discerning, loving and inclusive human being - it makes for a better-educated world. And Hallmark, this is a wake-up call that people are watching the choice of stories you choose to represent!

Hallmark values have changed

My family and I are so saddened and sickened that Hallmark has caved in to the LGBTQ community to start showing gay romance and lifestyle movies. The reason why we liked and watched Hallmark was because of the wholesomeness of the movies. Now you're just like all the other liberal channels. This will have greater repercussions for Hallmark among the conservative viewers than you ever thought possible! Your loss of revenue will be a result of this poor decision to go along with the gay agenda. It's time to take a stand for good morals! You can't have it both ways! We will no longer subscribe to Hallmark as a result of this decision! GOODBYE HALLMARK!!!

Goodbye Hallmark

My family has always enjoyed the Hallmark channel year round, however, we will no longer watch nor purchase anything from Hallmark given it wants to cave to the pc culture and aid the LGBT agenda. This lifestyle doesn't resonate with the majority of family viewers who have supported and watched Hallmark through the years. Undoubtedly, those of us boycotting will be labeled as "intolerant" or other pejorative connotations without recognizing it is the minority (LGBT community) that always initiates the first complaint of not tolerating those who disagree with them.

While I recognize Hallmark has become one of the new targets for the LGBT community to conquer, I am surprised and disappointed you are willing to sacrifice losing your loyal viewers and customers. I wish no ill will on anyone, including the LGBT community but am sorely disheartened that a corporation such as Hallmark is choosing to relinquish those who support family values as their foundation. It used to be yours too, Hallmark.

My family and I are so saddened and sickened that Hallmark has succumbed to the liberal view of the LGBTQ community. The reason why we loved Hallmark was because of the wholesomeness of the movies. Now this channel can no longer be trusted. There are plenty of other channels that focus on the liberal view. Hallmark was one that didn't. For this reason I will no longer subscribe to the Hallmark Channel. This decision to include LBGTQ romances and story lines will have greater repercussions from the conservative viewers than you ever thought possible. Goodbye Hallmark!!!

Zola ad

So disappointed upon hearing that Hallmark felt it was a mistake to pull the Zola ad. I won't make the mistake again of tuning in to Hallmark. It's sad that you are siding with the very small minority (2%). Good luck keeping viewership.

Hallmark Movie Content

I was extremely disappointed to learn that Hallmark/Crown Media has bowed to the pressure of a small minority of its' viewers to add back programming for the LGBTQ crowd. I am not particularly religious, but I have always enjoyed watching Hallmark for many years for its' wholesome entertainment. NO MORE!!! I will immediately cancel my subscription and never watch another Hallmark movie while you support this liberal crowd - they already have programming channels that they can watch without subjecting the rest of us to their sick viewpoint. Straight people have rights too. Curt

LGBT

Gay ad really!! I tune in to hallmark for what Hallmark is supposed to represent. Guess that has changed. If this channel has faves to the less than .10percent of the population that is trying to control the world then I will have to turn it off too and take my business elsewhere and you will find your stores will suffer as well as your movies. We might just be a quiet bunch who love morality!!

What a shame.

LGBT

My family loved watching the hallmark channel. You could turn it on and not worry about children seeing anything that would need explained and nearly every movie ended happy. Now you want to add gay couples to the mix! What is wrong with your head!.shame on you for even thing of such a thing! You say its more true to life....well, I for one will be change the channel until I get it removed from my Cabela service! If you were to conduct a survey, you would find that the audience you had was hetrosexual, not gay and you will not lose a lot of them? Marriage is met to be by man and women, not women to women or men to men. I suggest to read the Bible before you pull a stupid stunt like this!
