Starbucks CEO To Christians For Traditional Marriage: Go to Hell!
At the annual Starbucks shareholders meeting, shareholder Tom Strobhar noted that Starbucks’ support for gay marriage in Washington state had led to a boycott which cost the company revenue. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz responded to Strobhar’s complaint by telling him that he could, “sell your shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company.”
That sort of arrogant, obnoxious and anti-Christian attitude is exactly why Dump Starbucks was able to gather more than 59,000 signatures on its anti-Starbucks petition even before this latest insult.
“I am deeply offended by your corporate position to support same-sex marriage and your decision to wage a culture war against the moral views of half your US customers and the vast majority of your international consumers. Starbucks is using its resources to invalidate traditional marriage in the US and redefine the institution of marriage despite the strongly held views of so many of its customers, including me. Therefore, I will no longer purchase anything from Starbucks until you change your corporate values to be more reflective of my own.”
Are Christians going to continue to buy overpriced coffee from a firm that holds them in complete contempt? Let’s hope not.

The temptation to look for scapegoats is a human failing, too. Those who hate the military gleefully seize on every crime committed by a soldier, sailor or Marine as evidence that war causes crime, as though it were unheard of for civilians to rape, murder or steal. Those who hate religion seize on crimes committed by the faithful as evidence that religion causes pedophilia, as though child abuse were the exclusive province of the Catholic church.
Never mind that civilians and atheists commit crimes too.
