AFA initiatives, Christian activism, news briefs
October 2020 – Hallmark Channel recently announced its decision to promote the LGBTQ agenda in its movies.
“Diversity and inclusion is a top priority for us,” said George Zaralidis, vice president at Crowne Media Family Networks, Hallmark’s parent company. “And we look forward to making some exciting programming announcements in the coming months, including announcements about projects featuring LGBTQ storylines, characters, and actors.” A lesbian wedding was featured in a Hallmark movie on August 15.
“The once conservative network caved to LGBTQ pressure and has done a one-eighty from the wholesome content it used to air,” said Monica Cole, director of One Million Moms (1MM). “Hallmark Channel was one of the remaining channels that families could watch without being bombarded by politically correct commercials and the LGBTQ agenda. … Not anymore.”
In July, 1MM, an activist arm of AFA, launched a boycott of Hallmark Channel along with Hallmark wrapping paper, greeting cards, Christmas ornaments, etc. As of press time, the boycott petition had over 68,000 signatures.
