Hallmark Cards that epitome of middle-American 'normalcy' is now offering Same Sex Marriage Cards, and the right wing is pissed!
They are rallying all their bigots and haters to make phone calls and send nasty letters telling Hallmark that from now on all the right wing nuts will be using their competitors products, because American Greeting Cards, does not offer cards for the LGBT Community, (Yet!!!).
Let's All Thank Hallmark
This is not the time to debate the sometimes questionable artistic and linguistic merit of many of the company's offerings. The LGBT Community & Allies really needs to rally to Hallmark's defense here and let them know that we really do care enough to support a company exhibiting the very best in fair play and equality for all Americans.
Send the Chairman of Hallmark Cards Mr. Donald Hall your own note thanking him for being fair-minded enough as well as having the business savvy to make products that include all different sorts of people, milestones and occasions (they also sell Coming Out Cards!). Hey, send him your note of appreciation on a regular Hallmark Card or Ecard.

Let's Tell American Greetings that bigotry is un-American as well as unprofitable
Send your DISAPPROVAL to American Greetings and their subsidiary Carlton Cards for refusing to sell LGBT orientated cards. In fact send your sentiments to them on a regular Hallmark Card or Ecard to get the point across.

Kudos to our good allies at GLBTadvocates.org for passing along the need for action, getting the data together and suggesting this wicked cool strategy of using Hallmark's products thank them for their inclusion while clearly showing American Greetings that they are backing the loosing horse.
