Extreme hypocrisy. They claim they don't want people to live "sinful" lifestyles but object to them taking vows to be in stable, monogamous relationships.

Define "traditional"

Who's tradition?

From which era?

Traditions change

Tradition is when you bang a porn star while your third wife is pregnant with your 8th child.

Can't wait to watch that Zola commercial on the hallmark channel.

Have a 'problem' with that, then just do not tune in; that'll teach them!

New York (CNN Business)The Hallmark Channel is reversing its decision to pull advertisements featuring same-sex couples and apologizing for removing them in the first place, a network spokeswoman told CNN Business.

The decision comes after Hallmark parent company Crown Media Family Networks faced calls for viewers and advertisers to boycott its television channel. The ads, from online wedding planning company Zola, showed same-sex couples celebrating marriages.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Take THAT BIGOTS!!!!!!!!!!!

while we're at it, let's go full-bore, shall we? Whereas little Bobby used to want to play with trains or soldier toys - so outdated and patriarchal, bzzzzzt! - xe is now encouraged to learn about how Raymondo the bug-chaser contracted HIV after sharing a used needle, and how xe can do so too while being sensitive of others' preferred pronouns! Stunning and brave! Does your six year old know how to use a -----, ---- beads, or get an abortion? What? No? BIGOT! KILL THE HERETIC~!

Leftists won't be satisfied even when every single microsecond of broadcasted video is saturated with the most depraved, godless, hedonistic acts you can imagine, and then some. They're always going to push it to another level because many of the degenerate lifestyles to which the left caters are nonreproductive and therefore must recruit to maintain let alone grow their debased, rank, ranks. After all, who would've thought that just a few years after sodomite marriage was deemed legal we'd have literal demons inculcating sexual confusion into young children, and this would all be celebrated?

Women had better sex lives under socialism, goy. If you aren't a misogynist, it's time to talk about a neo-Bolshevik revolution. What's liberty? Time to cooooooooom! *splat*

Empirically proven to be healthier for society at every level than the nihilistic secular/atheist agenda which the west has followed for the past ~75 years.

Leftists won't be happy even when full motion video of lesbians licking each others' tonsils and gay men each others' ruby starfruits is transduced into everyone's occipital cortex from the moment of conception.

Wow the crazy is strong with this one.

Show us on the teddy bear where the priest touched you Berserk.

Is Gawd a weakling? Why does this show need to be cancelled?

Can't Gawd cover his almighty eyes if he thinks two women kissing is "icky?"

Can't he send a few hurricanes to wipe out divinely-selected targets and eliminate the scourge?

Why does Gawd need his troglodyte followers to do his dirty work for him " all the time?

Hallmark Caves to Wokescolds Who Will Never Watch the Channel.

"Over the weekend, the Hallmark Channel came under fire for its lack of wokenicity. The company committed the unpardonable sin of acquiescing to its loyal fan base rather than appease the outrage mob who never watched the channel, but were demanding it change anyway. For a brief while, anyway."

I'll take that over an old, balding (with an legendarily terrible comb-over), spray-tanned fat President awkwardly copulating with a porn star while his wife is pregnant with his third child. I can only assume that you are saying that conservatives will have that image "transduced into everyone's occipital cortex from the moment of conception." Since apparently forcing young children to witness adult sex acts is something that gets your jollies off, probably because you consider it part of your "traditional values".

"As Snoofy would say, "Thanks, Capitalism!""

I don't get this sentiment at all. The sarcasm falls flat when you look at the alternative. I guess you are implying you would rather be in a country where everything that airs is strictly controlled by the government? Or maybe in a country where you wouldn't just not get aired but you would get killed for even coming up with this idea? Even the EU Liberal havens go through this same kind of thing where they don't air something or have to stop airing something because of response. Your sarcasm is only implying you want control.

It would involve telling you the truth about a man having a penis and a woman having a vagina.

It might screw up your made up world view.

Reinstating the ads was smart.

Let someone else become the next target.

I watch hallmark movies quite often and never watch the ads.

You pay extra to sling for hallmark.

If they do like other sling stations and block ad skipping, I'll drop the extra fee.

I don't watch any sling channels that block skipping ads on recorded shows.

Interestingly the ads we saw being questioned were 2 white women.

Very vanilla.

How about 2 masculine virile looking men?

Wasn't this ad actually a bit sexist and even racist?

I mean...2 white women?

That being said...after the holidays I will cancel the Lifestyles Plus $5 add-on to Sling that provides Hallmark.

Really...my wife likes to watch it during the holidays and we never watch Hallmark otherwise but still pay the $5 monthly anyway.

We won't next year. Might pick it back up in Oct for the Thanksgiving and Christmas movies.
