Hallmark asked to take a stand

Hallmark Channel logoA pro-family cable channel is being encouraged to stay family friendly.

In a podcast that was recently made available, a reporter from The Hollywood Reporter asked Bill Abbot of Crown Media Family Networks, which owns Hallmark, if they would be open to featuring movies that have a homosexual theme for Christmas, or any other time for that matter. Abbott reportedly said the production company was open to any movie of any "type of relationship."

Scott Lively of Abiding Truth Ministries tells OneNewsNow a firm decision has not been made, though.

"I'm glad that Hallmark has not capitulated to their agenda thus far, but their answer to these demands is a little vague and kind of concerning, especially in light of just what's happened with Chick-fil-A," Lively comments.

He believes Hallmark owes it to its viewers to clarify its position.

"We just don't want to see wishy-washy in the face of this kind of pressure because of so many pro-family organizations that have capitulated in the past," says Lively. "It's killing us as a movement to have people in the business world who won't stand firm on family values."

He hopes Hallmark understands that a clear definition of family values is important to society and to Christians, and he concludes that no company should stand for the bullying tactics of the LGBT movement.
