Boycott forces Hallmark to pull gay ad, now liberals are boycotting them!

I almost feel sorry for Hallmark. First they put a gay couple in their advertisement, but end up pulling it down because of One Million Moms, and their petition against it. NOW the liberals are attacking them for pulling it down! LOL!

From the Moms:

The Hallmark Channel has always been known for its family friendly movies. Even its commercials are usually safe for family viewing. But unfortunately, that is not the case anymore.

Recently, One Million Moms received concerns about Hallmark airing a commercial from in which two lesbians are shown kissing at the end of their wedding ceremony. Similar concerns from regular viewers are posted on an online complaint board for the Hallmark Channel.

And their update:

1MM has personally spoken with Crown Media Family Networks CEO Bill Abbott who confirmed Hallmark Channel has pulled the commercial, featuring a same-sex couple, from their network. He reported the advertisement aired in error, but he was informed about it after hearing from concerned 1MM supporters. Way to go!

The call to our office gave us the opportunity to also confirm the Hallmark Channel will continue to be a safe and family friendly network. Praise the Lord!

1MM thanked him on behalf of all our supporters. We appreciate their prompt response and cooperation. No further action is needed! You are making a HUGE difference!

According to their website they only got about 26 thousand people to sign their petition, but that was enough. Here’s what Hallmark said:

“The debate surrounding these commercials on all sides was distracting from the purpose of our network, which is to provide entertainment value,” said a statement provided by Molly Biwer, senior vice president for public affairs and communications at Hallmark.

In an interview, she added: “The Hallmark brand is never going to be divisive. We don’t want to generate controversy; we’ve tried very hard to stay out of it. … We just felt it was in the best interest of the brand to pull them and not continue to generate controversy.”


I also like how the news sites like Los Angeles Times don’t give a link to the moms’ site. They don’t want to help them get more supporters, of course.
