Skip to comments.Now on the Hallmark aisle: Gay marriage cards
Posted on 08/21/2008 6:18:10 AM PDT by wk4bush2004
PORTLAND, Ore. - Most states don't recognize gay marriage but now Hallmark does. ADVERTISEMENT The nation's largest greeting card company is rolling out same-sex wedding cards featuring two tuxedos, overlapping hearts or intertwined flowers, with best wishes inside. "Two hearts. One promise," one says. Hallmark added the cards after California joined Massachusetts as the only U.S. states with legal gay marriage.

No more Hallmark. If American Greetings starts this crap I’ll make my own.
mroe companies trying to shove that perverted sick mental illness into our minds and trying to make us think it is normal
well Hallmark now is off the list, over priced cards anyway
Can hardly blame them. Why not separate the gays from their money.
exactly what I am going to do.
besides making cards is more personal at times like Christmas, are we allowed to say that word, ARF.
Don;t care if I along with my family are the only ones in the world who find their lifestyle disgusting, sick , perverted etc.
I’ll never accept it and let them know it too
I won’t either! Homosexuality is immoral and I cannot and will never support it.
You know what’s interesting is that Hallmark is based in Kansas City, Missouri and in Missouri, there is a voter-approved constitutional ban on gay marriage.
hardihar, have you ever thought about being in the Greeting Card industry? I think you have a gift ....
I’m with you on this...and I intend to let Hallmark know it.
You guys are killing me! :) lol
We had an ex-gay guy in our Bible study. He said that every day, EVERY gay guy knows in his heart that it is morally wrong.
I think that is why they are so aggressively pursuing being perceived as normal by the law. If the law says they are ‘normal,’ then it will prove to them that they are.
I will never accept sodomy as normal, nor will I guard my tongue and withold my opinion, if asked. It goes against my core beliefs. I will, however, be polite.
Interesting detail: after reading this, I bought a wedding card (I'm late, the wedding was last week) and the card happened to be from American Greetings. I'm sure Hallmark will assume that's a coincidence, but there's no point in explaining it to them.

Hallmark is also anti-gun.
I with you 100%, up until the polite part.
My response to them...
You have made a conscious decision to follow the pursuit of money and support a group of people whose sexual choice is contrary to society but now stands up and demands to be called morally and physically the same. You have sided with a vocal population that is less than 3-5% of society in America and does it best to undermine the nuclear family by demanding their new version of family and marriage be called equal when in all of human history it is clear that it is not and never will be.
Because of your choice our family will not buy nor be at all glad to receive any card made by your company. Nor will we ever again buy in your many stores or support your efforts in the greeting card and gift giving industry. You have sold your soul. Live with your decision.
You can show America that the family of Mother and father is important and that a sexual preference and behavioral choice is not equal to that of natural design. You do not have to pick sides either, but to support the lifestyle choice and give it legitimacy is destructive. Stop being fooled by emotion driven rhetoric and false studies that have zero basis in science and fall apart upon honest peer review.
I hear you but I am polite until as usual they change their attitude to one of you are a bigot.
I had a sticker saying man woman equals marriage. a woman drives past shouting.
I catch up to her at the lights and me being me ask her what she said.
she tells me I am not tolerant and then she hears my English accent.
She then gets wound up as I don’t take their liberal shoutings to kindly
guess what she shouts
why don’t you go back to where you come from this is America
so who is the one who is not tolerant,mmmmmmmm
anyway here in FL we have the marriage question on the ballot and suddenly there seems to be an influx of homo’s who have just moved down here or bought just small plots of land.
hahah, the polite part is just a Christian overlay. To treat a person as God’s creature ...
who did you mail it too as it gives many choices who to send the mail to?
If i were you, CC, I would write that poem up and fax it to Corporate. Ask them for a job.
can’t get through even on the phone now, I pressed 2 then 2
got through and the woman said straight away that they have had many calls thus far and that Hallmark realises this situation .
Hallmarks Corporate phone number is: 816-274-5111
press 4 then 5
FYI, please keep in mind that the BSA, boy scouts of america has stood by their beliefs on gays and has had a heck of a lot of funding pulled from everywhere.
I work at the local boyscout office and our donations have fallen off dramatically.
Please guy, help out the Boy Scouts, one of the last institutions that have the spine to stand up for marriage and non gayness.
agreed and the boy scouts is a fine place for boys to go and learn
the tornado they had up north proved that.
I have donated to my local one but not for some time, so thank you for reminding me on this I will be donating again
For those who may not know, there are some good Christian card publishers out there, you just have to look a bit.
And I don't expect that they'll sell many here. But what they're doing isn't illegal. They're just seeing a business need and filling it.
Even if you don't really mean it?
I wrote to Hallmark. If they are going to take the side of immorality in the culture war, then I will no longer do business with them. My son owns a local store and will be switching out his supply to another vendor. These types of companies need to know that our kids and our values are important to us. They cannot afford to play games like this.
I stopped buying “Hallmark” (and other) cards a long time ago.
I just figure there are more effective ways of communicating than a $4 piece of cardboard.
Hallmark is symptomatic of the superficial consumerist humanoid ant farm, whose members have been conditioned to believe they need the collectivist/corporatist stamp approval on every idea and emotion.
Reminds me of Ann Coulter's attitude toward liberals which she calls "tough love"; meaning, as with their "middle-class tax cuts", everything but the last word.
I think that is actually part of the draw. It feels good to do something wrong. You get a rush.
The main problem with homosexual normalization and other things like radical feminism and leftist ideologues is that since we have thrown away truth and cultural norms, we have accepted psychoses as normal instead of helping those within it and the more susceptible to stay away.
Hallmark’s contact number: 816-274-5111.
It is sad that a KC based company has resorted to this. They are going to have a lot of peeved off people in this area and I am one of them.
Really? See, I don't think that's Hallmark's motive at all. I think Hallmark's motive is making money for Hallmark. I don't think they care about gay marriage one way or the other.
Thanks for posting the contact info, Ice. I called them and gave my input...they are getting a lot of calls on this.
Their website is pretty bulletproof (prevents you from contacting them by email) but I did find 2 emails after searching for a while....
Their CEO is Donald J. Hall
It’s just capitalism. If there is a market the goods will be provided. If not Hallmark then somebody else.
Hallmark provides cards for a number of occasions that don’t apply to me, but I don’t go hysterical over it. Some people around here need to get a life.
that is your view , fine but I do not want to go into a store with my kids and see pictures of two men holding hands or cards dedicated to homosexuals etc.
Homosexuality is disgusting and not normal nor natural doing nothing only gets the perverted and their supporters more of their own way
As for getting a life ,so because some do not agree with a company pandering /accepting homosexual marriage and they let that company know their views they need to get a life,
Remember that when you do not agree with something and feel your view should be aired
yes if it isn’t Hallmark then someone else, you are right but if enough make a noise other companies will not pander to homosexuals.
What will hallmark do when proposition 8 passes?
If this was a company which sponsored conservatives they would have been crucified for any protect marriage conduct.
Note, not one mention of FL passing a constitutional marriage amendment this upcomming november.
No mention of the California nixing homosexual based marriage.
It’s called freedom of expression. If you don’t like it you are free to go elsewhere.
WOMEN LOVE IT WHEN A MAN MAKES THE CARD FOR HER!
I can only imagine what they say....
And every year I see fewer "nativity" / religious Christmas cards, and more "happy snowman"-type secular Christmas cards. What's happening to our society?
