Starbucks Taking Pride In 'Anti-God' Coffee Cup CampaignTopics: Political News and commentaries
""When asked if there were any scenario that would prompt the company to remove a certain cup from its campaign, she said she could not comment on a hypothetical situation, saying only, "Certainly, we have no plans to remove any of them.""
Conservatives have long said that Starbucks has too many liberal viewpoints. Back in March 2005 a St. Pete Times piece noted that of the 31 contributors listed on Starbucks' Web site, only one -- National Review editor Jonah Goldberg -- offered a conservative viewpoint. Some customers have complained to Starbucks' Web site, labeling their campaigns as "offensive" and the company a proponent of "the destruction of family values and virtues." Now it appears that they are taking pride in being anti-God.
It is, of course, Starbucks choice to be as liberal as they want to be, and put on their coffee cups whatever they want. After all, it's their business and their coffee cups. However, for those of us that are offended by Starbucks' promotion of a liberal progressive agenda, it's our money and we can spend it on whatever coffee we want. As for me, I never have liked Starbucks politics, but fortunately I find their coffee too acidic for my taste. So, as many others are now saying, Starbucks coffee is clearly a habit I can do without.
