We Support One Million Moms, Hallmark Is No Longer A Family Channel

Boycott all things Hallmark. This includes Hallmark Channel, Hallmark wrapping paper, greeting cards, Christmas ornaments, etc.

Warning!  LGBTQ Christmas Movie
on Hallmark

Families need to be aware that Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” movie specials will be very different this year since the network will be including LGBTQ content and characters in its original movies for the first time ever.

For example, The Christmas House, set to air Sunday, November 22, at 8:00 p.m. CST will include a gay couple.  The cast features Johnathan Bennett and Brad Harder as gay dads-to-be through adoption.

Hallmark Channel, owned by Crown Media Family Networks, announced its plans to start introducing gay and transgender storylines into its movies after receiving online complaints about the lack of obvious LGBTQ content in its lineup of holiday movies.

Michelle Vicary, executive vice president of programming at Crown Media Family Networks, said in a recent secular interview that the 2020 holiday programming reflects “our most diverse representation of talent, narratives, and families.

“Our holiday table is bigger and more welcoming than ever,” she added in a press release.  “Our movies are rooted in warmth and positivity, meaningful connections, family gatherings, and seasonal traditions — a winning formula we hope will bring our millions of viewers much-needed levity and holiday cheer at the end of a tough year.”

So many people feel betrayed by Hallmark, which used to be set apart from other channels because of the wholesome, family-friendly content it aired.  However, in less than one year, the network decided not only to air LGBTQ commercials, which One Million Moms petitioned and began to boycott in December 2019, but also to produce and air movies pushing the gay agenda by featuring lead gay characters in homosexual relationships.

The once conservative network has caved to LGBTQ pressure and has done a one-eighty from the wholesome content the channel once aired, and the network is now catering to the Left.

TAKE ACTION NOW

Please sign our unique petition stating you will specifically boycott ‘The Christmas House’ movie on November 22 by not watching Hallmark Channel that day and by not purchasing any Hallmark products as long as Hallmark pushes the LGBTQ agenda.  Now, please share with your family and friends.

Blessings,

Child Abuse charge

LINCOLN, NE  –  A former superintendent of Centennial Public Schools accused of inappropriate contact with a student made his first court appearance Wednesday.

Timothy DeWaard, 56, is charged with felony child abuse.

NE School Superintendent Arrested Child Abuse, Sexual Assault Of Student

DeWaard resigned in July after being arrested on sexual assault of a child and child abuse charges after law enforcement received a tip regarding the alleged abuse of a high school-aged student.

Investigators said in an affidavit for his arrest that DeWaard began talking with the male student over the Snapchat app.  The talks escalated to DeWaard bringing the student into his office on multiple occasions and having him sit on his lap while he helped him with his school work, investigators wrote.  DeWaard also touched the boy’s inner thighs, according to the document.

The incidents took place over several months, with the alleged victim telling investigators he “felt he had to do this or he would fail out of school,” according to court documents.

Deputies with the Seward County Sheriff’s Office arrested DeWaard without incident at the school.  He was released after his wife paid five percent of his $50,000 bond.

DeWaard’s next hearing is scheduled for November.

Owner of Manhattan, Kansas restaurant bound over on 26 child sex counts

MANHATTAN, KANSAS  –  The longtime owner of a Manhattan restaurant has been bound over on 26 charges of sexual abuse against minors, KMAN Radio reports.

Arraignment is scheduled for July in Riley County District Court for Robert Iacobellis, 62, the owner of Bob’s Diner.

Charges range from aggravated indecent liberties to rape and sodomy.

KMAN reports that 24 of the counts carry a life sentence.

During a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Riley County District Court, three victims testified that Iacobellis touched, fondled or sexually assaulted them on numerous occasions, sometimes when they were as young as 7 years old, KMAN reports.

Iacobellis will be tried on 16 counts against the first victim, including charges of rape and sodomy;  six counts of aggravated indecent liberties against a second victim; and four counts against a third victim.

During testimony at Tuesday’s preliminary hearing, one of the victims alleged the abuse began when her mother — who is a former weekend employee at Bob’s Diner — had Iacobellis watch her while she went to work.  That victim alleged the abuse continued until January 2019.

Judge William Malcolm found enough probable cause from the testimony to proceed to trial.

Iacobellis was arrested in August 2019.  An amended complaint listed 130 total charges against the three alleged victims.

Iacobellis will be arraigned at 2:30 p.m. July 6 with Judge Kendra Lewison presiding.
According to KMAN, Iacobellis remains jailed on a $400,000 bond.

TN Nurse Has License Suspended Five Years

Nurse convicted for sharing information
on child rape has license suspended

JOHNSON CITY, TN  –  A former Johnson City Medical Center nurse who was a sexual assault examiner has had her license suspended for five years, 18 months after she was found guilty of unlawful disclosure of confidential child sex abuse information.

Tessa Proffitt, of Jonesborough, was found guilty on six counts in November 2018 after she was discovered to have communicated with the mother of a child rape suspect about the case.  William David Blevins was convicted in the case of rape of a child who was 10 years old at the time of the offenses.

During its investigation into Blevins, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) discovered Proffitt was communicating with Alicia May, a registered nurse who is Blevins’ mother, according to a Tennessee Board of Nursing agreed order.

Proffitt, as a sexual assault nurse examiner, had performed a rape examination on Blevins’ victim and collected evidence for a rape kit.

A Washington County grand jury initially charged Proffitt with two counts of tampering with evidence and one count of criminal conspiracy to tamper with evidence in addition to the unlawful disclosure charges.

WOMAN INDICTED FOR REVEALING INFO, TAMPERING IN CHILD SEX ABUSE CASE

She was sentenced to 11 months 29 days probation, ordered to perform 60 hours of community service and fined $250.

During the suspension of her nursing license, Proffitt is ordered to obtain 15 hours of Tennessee Board of Nursing-approved ethics training and 15 hours regarding HIPAA/confidentiality.

She must also pay two separate $1,000 fines and take and pass the Ethics and Boundaries Assessment Exam.

Blevins, of Johnson City, was charged in November 2019 with violating the sex offender registry.
