Hallmark announced that it is planning to feature LGBTQ storylines in their upcoming movies. A spokesperson for Hallmark informed us that they have heard the call for change, they are working on it and it is coming. The spokesperson said that in the coming months, Hallmark will be making announcements about “projects featuring LGBTQ storylines, characters and actors.” The company stated that diversity and inclusion are their top priority and that they “want to create an environment where every single person feels welcome.”
But that is not what this blog is about.
This blog is about something far worse than their decision to feature LGBTQ themes. I want to answer the question we should be asking. Why are they doing something that could cause their ratings to tank? In the past, ads for airlines, hotels, and soda companies, etc. did this because they thought it was good for business and made them look inclusive. That was their reasoning, and they thought it made sense. This doesn’t—not when you look at Hallmark’s target audience. They have always been family oriented, but something has changed. What we are watching is a company acting against its own best interests, out of fear.
Hallmark is doing this out of fear of the revolution. Hallmark is acting the way companies did in Russia, Korea, China, and Cuba when it became clear that the revolution was inevitable and would soon seize private property. They were told in no uncertain terms by the Marxists, “Do this, or when we seize power, we will come after you.” Hallmark is willing to accept losses and agree to a have a smaller audience, rather than invoke the wrath of the revolution.
In each of these instances, their decisions will offend many who are part of their base and will cost them dearly. But they will do it anyway. Again, these are not business or moral decisions. This is fear of the revolution clouding the minds of leaders.
The foggy thinking of Hallmark—and the sign that they did this in haste—is easily seen in their words: “We want to create an environment where every single person feels welcome.” Every single person? The terrorist? The rapist? The pedophile? MS-13? ISIS? Wow! These are going to be some strange movies!
Well, of course they don’t mean that. That is not my point. The overkill in their wording is because they are scared.
The other reason Hallmark and other corporations are caving to the revolution, is the church. Hallmark is terrified of the leftists, but not of the church. They are hoping the Christian audience will come around to accept the revolution because they are also scared.
The Left has convinced America that no backlash is coming. No voice is out there that will rally America to reject the revolution, no matter how crazy their demands get. Burn buildings, abolish the police, make LGBTQ Hallmark movies—and make white people repent for being white.
We hear a lot about the silent majority. We are told that a vast core of Americans, who are both patriots and committed believers, are outraged. So far, the silent majority has been, well, silent. If they exist, and if they are outraged, they had better speak up soon.
God told Ezekiel, “Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman to the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from My mouth, warn them from Me. When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at your hand. Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself” (Ezekiel 3:16-19).
Once you realize that America has already been taken over, you are ready to follow God into a national miracle. The real threat of the American church is denial. Fortunately, God doesn’t need the church to wake up in order to do a miracle. All he needs is you.
Your age, gender, education, and talent are not as important as your passion to believe and obey. Let this be the day that you stop fearing and start standing and speaking out. The arguments of the Left are so stupid that simple common sense can destroy them. All we need to do is speak the truth. We need to cry out to God to fill us with Holy Ghost fire and speak out the words that will most certainly be given to all who are willing vessels.
P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries
Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment. So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.
