Mayor Pete Blasts Hallmark Channel for Pulling Kissing Lesbians Commercial
Townhall.com ^ | DEcember 17, 2019 | Todd Starnes

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is blasting the Hallmark Channel's decision to pull four television commercials that featured a lesbian couple kissing.

“Families are built on love—no matter what they look like,” Buttigieg, the first openly gay presidential candidate, tweeted Sunday. “Being ‘family friendly’ means honoring love, not censoring difference."

In other words, "wholesome" Mayor Pete believes the reason for the season is forcing children to watch lesbians making out on the Hallmark Channel.

“This truth will be more important than ever as we rebuild our nation into a place defined by belonging, not by exclusion,” he wrote.

The commercials featured two brides standing at the altar wondering if their same-sex wedding would have been smoother had they used Zola, a wedding planning site. The ad concludes with the women sharing a quick kiss.

One Million Moms, a division of American Family Association, launched a petition drive blasting the family-friendly network’s decision to broadcast the ads.

"Shame on Hallmark for airing commercials with same-sex couples and even considering movies with LGBT content and lead characters," the organization declared in a prepared statement. "Until recently, Hallmark had a good record for keeping their movies and commercials family friendly. Now, parents can no longer trust Hallmark because Hallmark is no longer allowing parents to be the primary educators when it comes to sex and sexual morality."

Thousands of concerned viewers signed the petition, leading Hallmark to backtrack and eventually pull the ads.

“The debate surrounding these commercials on all sides was distracting from the purpose of our network, which is to provide entertainment value,” Hallmark spokesperson Molly Biwer told the Los Angeles Times.

The Hallmark Channel had already been facing criticism from the LGBT community for a lack of diversity in their Christmas movies. A number of activists have been calling for Hallmark to include more same-sex relationships and kisses.

The reality is the sex and gender revolutionaries want to indoctrinate your children -- whether they are watching the Hallmark Channel or the Disney Channel.

Many of the parents who call my radio program share their frustrations that so much of what is broadcast on network and cable television is not suitable for the entire family. That’s why so many folks who cherish traditional values love the Hallmark Channel.

So ease up, Mayor Pete. If parents want to expose their children to lesbians kissing they can watch Logo TV or Bravo.

Except Hallmark gave in and now there is no place where you can go to watch good wholesome TV. They are off my list and if FOX continues the direction they are going I’m on the way to saving a hundred bucks a month.

“...there is no place where you can go to watch good wholesome TV.”

Yesterday I called DirecTV and halved our cable bill. We want to ditch it all as soon as we line up some good alternative(s). There are so many ways to get service, but they’re all in different types of media, and willy-nilly all over the place. I wish there were a site that aggregates all the options and explains how each is used.

Last week I cancelled our AT&T landline. I told the rep it was because they were illegally turning over private citizens’ phone information to Democrats. (I think she had heard it before from her tone. It almost sounded like she was sympathetic.)

Bye bye Pete. It’s one thing to ask us to ignore what you do in the privacy of your own home. It’s quite another to demand that our kids watch you do it.

I don’t get it. I’d love something to watch on TV, too, but when I don’t get it I don’t demand networks air something only I wanna watch. I just leave the danged boon tube tuned off. I survive.

A BIBLICAL Message about homosexuality



 
Genesis 13:13
Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD.

Genesis 18:20-21
20. Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and
their sin so grievous
21. that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."

Genesis 19:4-7
4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men
from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house.
5. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them
."
6. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7. and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.


Leviticus niv

18:22 Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.

20:13 If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

 
 


Psalms 12:8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.

Doonesbury Cartoon for Feb/08/2013

Isaiah 3:9 The look on their faces testifies against them;

they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it.

Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.

================================================

2 Peter 2:13b Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight.

They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.


Ezekiel 16:49-50
49. "`Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.
50. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.


Romans 1     New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
 
 18 The wrath of God is indeed being revealed from heaven against every impiety and wickedness of those who suppress the truth by their wickedness. 19 For what can be known about God is evident to them, because God made it evident to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes of eternal power and divinity have been able to be understood and perceived in what he has made. As a result, they have no excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not accord him glory as God or give him thanks. Instead, they became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 While claiming to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for the likeness of an image of mortal man or of birds or of four-legged animals or of snakes.
 

24 Therefore, God handed them over to impurity through the lusts of their hearts for the mutual degradation of their bodies. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. Their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper. 29 They are filled with every form of wickedness, evil, greed, and malice; full of envy, murder, rivalry, treachery, and spite. 


2 Peter 2

1. But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
2. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
3. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
4. For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment;
5. if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
6. if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
7. and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men
8. (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
9. if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
10. This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;
11. yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.
12. But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.
13. They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done.
Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.



But there IS hope!!!

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10. nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.


If you could NOT change, you would be in most pitiful shape...

We are living in a Genesis 19:9 world...
 

"Get out of our way,” they replied.
“This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge!
We’ll treat you worse than them.”
They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.

If the LGBT wants something to watch, why don’t they start their own channel?

God knows, I would if I could.

The Cat Channel.

24/7 cat-related programming.

censoring differences?

It is censoring an attack on the very basic building block of society - the TRADITIONAL family.

Mayor Pete cannot procreate by way of his sodomy.

Gayer Pete need not worry. Hallmark put its tail between its legs and relented.
