Mormon College Removes Hallmark Gay Marriage Cards From Bookstore Shelves
We guess Brigham Young University students that want to send well-wishes to their married gay friends and family will have to look beyond the college book store for cards.
Cards celebrating same-sex marriage were briefly on the shelves at the BYU bookstore on Tuesday, but if you blinked you missed them because they were off the shelves by Wednesday.
See, if you take the greeting cards away, gay marriage won't exist!
Greeting cards celebrating same-sex marriages turned up at the Brigham Young University bookstore Tuesday.
BYU spokeswoman Carri Jenkins said Wednesday that the cards were placed on the shelves by Hallmark. Jenkins says they were quickly removed when bookstore staff discovered them after photos surfaced online.
She said the outside vendor stocked the shelves without realizing the school wouldn't want to sell the cards.
Acting on same-sex attraction with any form of physical affection is a violation of the school's honor code.
BYU is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which has stood behind its belief that marriage should only be between a man and a woman despite a growing societal movement in support of legalizing gay marriage.
A call to Hallmark wasn't immediately returned.
