I love that their way of getting back at Starbucks is to spend more money at Starbucks.

I'm going to have to immediately meditate to avoid punching someone if I'm in a store and someone pulls the smug "My name is Merry Christmas" nonsense.

Yes, ho ho, you're so clever! You forced the barista to say Merry Christmas against their will, and now they will immediately burst into flames! ALSO, IT'S NOVEMBER 10th.




*I realize that's beside the point, since the stores all have the holiday bling out now. But oh well. Life in retail, yo.

You'd think if their faith was so strong, they were sure they are so right with their belief......it really could withstand "happy holidays"

Apparently the Christian faith only works if you mention His name with everything, otherwise it's powerless.

Just like the right's view of Islam: it's a religion founded upon destroying those who aren't a part of it.

Same goes with "religious freedom." You aren't doing things in the way of Christianity? No snowflakes on my cup? We are not free! Bah! Sabotage, I say!

A huge LOL to you, sir, if you think any money is going to be lost over this.

Every sane Christian I know (and those I don't know, thanks internet!) is saying the complaint is extremely silly.

They lost my business years ago because of their stances. In fact, they never even got my business. I've always been strongly anti-Starbucks everything.
It just boils down to the classic economic principle of voting for companies with your dollar. I personally don't give a crap about it, since I'm not a Starbucks client anyway.

2016 US Presidential Election Pt. III

Just went and read the full story. Who cares? They're a company expressing their views in the free market. Who gives a crap? They're not a Christian company, what do people expect? Huge non issue. As stated above, I hate Starbucks for a variety reasons (including just hating them because it offends people). But they are more than free to do what they want. If you don't like it, don't go there. It's not the only coffee shop in the country.

(Sorry for double posting)

I love this show so much. The dude is hilarious. Haven't had a chance to watch the new season yet (I don't have cable), but this reminds me that I need to catch up on it on Hulu.

I don't drink coffee and could care less about Starbucks honestly. I could also care less this current controversy. If people want to buy their product, more power to them, if people do not, good for them as well.

While i do value my own personal religious beliefs, i would never stop drinking beer just because the bottle or package does not have a cross or Baby Jesus on the label. I am not sure why this only seems to apply to Starbucks.

There was a controversy a few years ago with Chick Fil A, i believe the owner might have said something about his or her views on gay marriage. So what? I don't agree with him but that doesn't mean i like or dislike their product because the owner is living in the stone ages.

I don't recall if that hurt his business at all, probably not, and i could give a flying fuck anyway. People get way too riled up about...everything....these days. When was the last time someone actually had an opinion and nobody protested or gave a fuck?

It actually boosted Chick Fil-A's sales massively. They had the best week in the history of their company.

Well good for them! It would be funny as hell if the same thing happened with Starbucks. I said before i don't drink coffee, but im tempted - and i live in the bible belt - im tempted to go to Starbucks tomorrow and order some coffee. When they ask my name...i will tell them SATAN. Then the next day i will be LUCIFER. Then CAIAPHAS, JUDAS, etc.

"We have a lot of kids who don't know what works means. They think work is a four-letter word."


This one is funny.

As I've mentioned, no offense to your people, but I HATE the Red cups. And I hate this pseudo controversy for not allowing me to hate the red cups in peace.

I hate the red cups because I perceive them to be Starbucks being cheap.
