Hallmark to Debut First Movie With LGBT Storyline This Weekend

By Jessilyn Lancaster, Managing Editor

After significant pressure from the liberal agenda, Hallmark will debut its first Christmas movie with a gay storyline this weekend, Nov. 22.

The movie, THE CHRISTMAS HOUSE, stars MEAN GIRLS’ Jonathan Bennett as a gay man summoned home by his parents just in time for the holidays. The plot reportedly will focus on Bennett’s character and his husband’s journey to adopt a child.

While the actors praise the movie as “progress,” the reality is that storylines like this alienate one of Hallmark’s largest and most passionate audiences: Christian conservatives.

Before this year, the channel provided movies with wholesome storylines that often included strong biblical worldviews, mentions of Jesus and the nativity, and Christmas hymns that remind us of the reason for the season. Audiences could count on a formulaic, feel-good plot that was safe for families to watch.

It’s unfortunate that Hallmark felt bullied by gay advocacy groups into including plot points that appease the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community.

While it’s abundantly clear that Hallmark can no longer be trusted to create categorically appropriate content, some of their upcoming movies do include prominent Christian actresses, including Candace Cameron Bure, Jen Lilley and Tamera Mowry-Housley.

If you’re looking for this season’s latest family-friendly Christmas movies, Movieguide® found that the following contain strong Christian/biblical worldviews: DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW, THE FARMER AND THE BELLE: SAVING SANTALAND, MISTLETOE MAGIC, MIRACLE ON CHRISTMAS, and A RING FOR CHRISTMAS.
