Is Your Church Serving Starbucks?

Kaldi's Coffee. Caribou Coffee. Tim Horton's. Or better yet, a local family-owned coffee shop in your own neighborhood.

Where do you buy your coffee?

When Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced that advocacy of same-sex marriage was core to the company's mission and identity, he gave American consumers a choice: pay for Starbucks lobbying in support of same-sex marriage every time you buy a cup of coffee, or find another coffee shop.

I don't want a single dime of my money to be used to push same-sex marriage on the American people. And I suspect a lot of you feel the same way—and that's why we started DumpStarbucks.com.

Individually, there's not much you or I can do to make the coffee giant pay attention to our concerns, but if thousands of us join together we can send them a message: Alienating your customers is bad for business!

I hope you'll visit DumpStarbucks.com today. There you can sign a petition urging Starbucks to respect the beliefs of all their customers, and then contact your local Starbucks locations to let them know why you'll be going elsewhere for your coffee from now on.

Perhaps the most important thing you can do today is this:

Make sure your friends and family know about Starbucks' campaign against marriage.

Invite your friends to join you in making a point to support local family coffeehouses. Go to DumpStarbucks.com and post to your Facebook page. Find out if your church is serving Starbucks coffee this weekend.

There are a hundred different ways you can make a difference. Let's be creative, and together send Starbucks a message!

The National Organization for Marriage Education Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization, gifts to which are deductible as charitable contributions for Federal income tax purposes.

    Such an IRRESPONSIBLE! DISRESPECTFUL! ARROGANT! and NOT so bright "ceo" (I do mean little "ceo"). When you run a big business like Starbucks, one should know that one should NOT offend your customers, no matter what or who they are. I used to go to Starbucks for the convenience of it, but personally, I can find much better coffee at my local coffee shops. I really don't mind supporting my community small businesses, so it is not a big lost for me at all!
