Just in - Hallmark apologizes for pulling ad featuring same-sex couple

Hallmark should have never pulled this ad.

Well now I am dizzy. The Hallmark Channel pulled an ad featuring a same-sex couple after hate group the American Family Association and its affiliate group, One Million Moms, complained.

The company behind the ad, the wedding site Zola, pulled all of its ads from the channel in protest. In addition, LGBTQ organizations, LGBTQ community, and a lot of other folks spent the entire weekend figuratively dragging Hallmark, especially on Twitter with the hashtags #boycotthallmark and #BoycottHallmarkChannel .

Now comes this:

Okay, American Family Association and One Million Moms, it's your turn. Top that if you can. Whatever happens next, this is still a victory for the LGBTQ community. Our lives, our loved ones, our families, and especially our children will not be excised, erased, or eliminated to fit someone else's narrative. We don't need anyone's "tolerance" or "acceptance." And we damned sure aren't going to take your disrespect.

Repost - What if Jesus came back & saw what was being done in His name?

I posted this last year, but based upon recent events (the Trump presidency, the fake "War on Christmas," the Hallmark nonsense, how the evangelical right have gotten out of control thanks to Trump), this needs a respost. We NEED this lesson from Saturday Night Live more than ever now. All of us. But honestly speaking, some of us need it more than others.
