3, 2, 1 ... And Here Comes The Crazies.


.
.
The right-wing American Family Association (AFA), best known because of its boycotts of McDonalds for supporting the development of gay owned small businesses and Proctor & Gamble because it advertised on the TV shows "Will and Grace" and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" announced a protest of Hallmark as a reaction to the announcement of the sale of same sex marriage cards.
.
From the AFA protest site:

"We’ve all given or received Hallmark Cards – remember their slogan – “when you care enough to send the very best.” But promoting same-sex marriage for profit is not the very best for families or our nation. Hallmark is a private company obviously driven by greed. Let them know you do not appreciate Hallmark promoting a lifestyle which is illegal in 48 states. American Greeting Cards, Hallmark’s competitor, does not offer same-sex marriage cards."
.
We can only hope Hallmark holds tough against these bullies.

Also, call your local Hallmark Store and ask when they will be stocking the cards. Go buy one, to show your support. If you don't know any couples that are getting married, use the card to write a letter to the American Family Association (AFA) and tell them to go take a flying leap. Let them know that they don't speak for your family.
