I happened to see this article and can’t resist a quick comment. It’s not just that some whackaloo religinut is condemning Starbucks for its entirely moral and courageous stand supporting same-sex rights. Yes, that’s bad enough but fairly routine. But this well-known homophobe had to do the usual exaggeration and declare the end of the world (not the one he dreams of, the imaginary rapture).
As a result of the franchise and Schultz’ statements, “there’s no way a Christian can help support what is attacking God,” Barton continued. “I’m sorry, you’ve got to find some other coffee to drink. You can’t drink Starbucks and be Biblically correct on this thing. It’s just a real simple principle.”
Principle, what principle? What some ancient book of myths declares, along with about a zillion other offenses for which we should be stoning almost everyone to death.
Fine, he wants to try to organize a boycott of Starbucks – I’ll get out my gold card and drop a few more bucks in their till.
You go, Starbucks – don’t let the bigots get to you.
