Your Taxes Promote Gay Valentine’s Day Cards

Drew Zahn, WorldNetDaily

This Valentine’s Day, National Public Radio chose two curious ways to celebrate the holiday: It thanked President Obama for proposing an increase in its federal funding, then it used its taxpayer money to promote greeting cards for the homosexual lifestyle.

During yesterday’s “Morning Edition” program, Selena Simmons-Duffin shared a story on air – and expanded in an online article – titled “Greeting Cards that Celebrate a Rainbow of Loves.”

“It can be especially hard to find the perfect Valentine’s Day card for your special someone if you’re in a same-sex relationship,” Simmons-Duffin writes. “That’s because no major greeting card company carries a line of cards geared toward members of the lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender community.”

Her article then explains that while Hallmark has only tried LGBT cards in limited markets, a private company called A Little to the Left is thrilled to make them available.

“I was always frustrated because I could never find a tasteful card to send to [my son and his partner],” card maker Sandi Timberlake said, “and certainly no card that said ‘to son and son-in-law.’ I knew I couldn’t be the only mother or family of a gay person who needed this kind of card.”

Now that Timberlake is in the business of making the cards, she boasts in NPR’s article, “My potential market could be anywhere from 60 to 90 million people, or more!”

The NPR article also quoted Hallmark senior writer Andre du Broc explaining that while the nation’s largest greeting card company hasn’t produced LGBT Valentine’s cards, it’s same-sex-marriage cards were “performing on par with our regular wedding cards” following a 2008 California Supreme Court decision attempting to legalize same-sex marriage.

The NPR radio spot concluded with a du Broc quote: “I don’t think there’s a difference between, you know, love between a man and a man, a woman and a woman, a man and a woman.”

    I needed this money to get my hetersexual wife a valentines day gift and then a birthday birthday gift in in april and then Christmas gifts for my half dozen hetersexual children in december and college educations for all of them . NPR on the other hand gets more than enough in donations to run their little propaganda machine without money I need for my family that only listen to patriotic news from people that are proud of our fantastically great country .

  2. How retarded! The taxpayers should be reimbursed!

  3. I wouldn't give these a**h***s a damn dime for what they're about! They can go **** themselves for all I care!

  4. Homosexuals…. ewwwww……900 times more likely to have aids… but it isnt a gay desease… lol

  5. Gay people pay taxes too, and for what seems like only a few minutes of airtime, surely tax revenues from them would cover the cost, no?

    Just because NPR is in part publicly funded, doesn't really mean that every listener has a right not to be offended by anything they air, there are more radio stations, just listen to one of those maybe?
