Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Hallmark has begun to sell cards for gay marriages and, of course, civilization now teeters on the brink of chaos as a result:

A published report quotes a Hallmark spokesperson as saying the company’s “coming out” cards, which hit stores last year — and the new same-sex wedding cards, brought into circulation following the landmark California Supreme Court ruling legalizing homosexual “marriage” — are intended to help the company be “as relevant as possible to as many people as we can.”

But Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality says the cost of that relevance is ignoring what God’s Word says about behavior that God considers sin. “It’s very sad to see these large corporations choosing the almighty dollar over basic Christian morality,” he comments.

Yeah! Even worse, though, are companies that serve hamburgers and flagrantly violate basic Hindu morality. Or companies that sell pork or shrimp in clear violation of Jewish and Muslim morality.

That news has led one pro-family activist to warn that it’s another step in the strategy to incorporate homosexuality into customs that have been considered “normal” and “sacred” in the culture.

Sacred? Hallmark cards? Is there anything less sacred than spending a buck fifty on a card to express the feelings of someone else, usually in the form of some insipid poem that would sound corny to a precocious 5 year old?
