Hallmark reverses ‘wrong decision’ to pull same-sex marriage ads

The Hallmark Channel has said it will resume showing same-sex marriage adverts it pulled after criticism from a conservative group.

Mike Perry, president of Hallmark Cards, which owns the channel, has said it was “the wrong decision” to stop showing them.

Wedding planning site Zola had six adverts on the Channel, with four including a lesbian couple.

At least one of them featured two brides kissing at the altar.

Crown Media Holdings, the subsidiary of Hallmark Cards which owns the channel, pulled the four same-sex adverts following a complaint from the conservative One Million Moms group.
