Peter LaBarbera has something up his ass again. No, it’s not a leather butt plug. Well, maybe that too. But these days his frothing of the mind is oozing all over gay greeting cards. He is urging people to boycott Hallmark for their recent decision to come out with same sex marriage cards. Can you hear that noise? More fundie’s heads imploding, just because greeting cards now turn toward the gay marketplace. On his website, he says the company chooses ‘relevance’ over morality saying they are “pandering to homosexuals” and urges people to contact Hallmark and express their discontent. Oh Peter, you are on to us. This was really the main goal of the gay agenda. Gifts aren’t the same without a fabulous greeting card to go with it. After all, you know we like to accessorize everything. You really know how to hit us where it hurts. sob
“Please politely communicate your disappointment to them, as the operator is not responsible for this bone-headed move and might actually share your values”
Yeah, keep dreaming Peter. Not everyone is a pompous hate filled bigot like you.
According to a statement from the company emailed to GayWired.com, Hallmark plans to release four same-sex marriage greeting card designs this summer. The company already offers specific marriage-themed cards for specific demographics such as interracial couples and blended families.
The new designs feature such themes as two overlapping tuxedos, a cascade of hearts in rainbow colors around the tagline “Two hearts. One promise.” and colorful intertwining flowers. The greetings in the cards do not specifically address weddings or marriage, so they can be used for commitment ceremonies or other celebrations in addition to marriage ceremonies.
“These new wedding cards were created in direct response to consumers’ desires to have cards that include specifically tailored language and images for same-sex marriages or civil unions,” the statement from Hallmark said. “It is our goal to be inclusive rather than exclusive so that our products appeal to the widest range of people who wish to communicate and connect with one another.”
Peter even emailed Hallmark CEO Don Hall to express his bigotry, and he urges his clan to do the same.
Dear Hallmark CEO Don Hall,
My wife and I won’t be buying Hallmark cards again until you stop promoting homosexuality and “gay marriage.” It’s very sad that your company – which most Americans would associate with more wholesome values – has now chosen to profit off of sexual immorality. (Homosexual behavior is sinful, changeable – see this EX-gay site: www.janetboynesministries.com – and often linked to serious health risks.)
Good luck with your new, politically correct business plan, but I will be informing as many people as I can to stop buying Hallmark cards until you get out of the homosexuality-promotion business.
Did you notice he seems to really be pushing the ‘gay exorcism’ on Hallmark’s CEO. I guess the Peter thinks anyone who would dare promote the
gay agenda inclusiveness and equality of gays must be in need of treatment. Jeebus Peter, get a life already!
And now the Concerned Women for America gets in on the act:
Wendy Wright, President of Concerned Women for America (CWA), said, “Hallmark is jeopardizing its brand as a family-friendly company. Customers used to be able to trust Hallmark to produce quality products that were safe for all ages. Now parents will need to steer their kids from Hallmark’s section of the greeting card aisle and away from its previously heartwarming movies for fear that they too will push homosexual messages.“
Run kids run! Get away from those greeting cards quick before you catch teh gay!
UPDATE: AFA refuses to purchase gay greeting cards. Where’s Pam’s tiny violin?
Action Alert blanket email:
Dear Chairman Hall:
I am surprised that Hallmark is promoting an unhealthy lifestyle which is illegal in 48 states. There was a time Hallmark told us to send the very best. Sorry to see you have taken a giant step down. No more. American Greeting Cards, your competitor, will be getting my business.
AFA, we promise, you will not be forced to buy gay greeting cards. Well, at least not until we take over the world. Bwahahahaha!
