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.”
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.”
