Dump Starbucks: 7,000 & Counting!

 

We're just about to hit 7,000 pledges over at DumpStarbucks.com. And my post at The Corner has generated more comments--121--than anything I've ever posted.

Stay tuned, we are in for a big ride with this thing!

I think the arrogance of Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is key. How can anyone think it's in Starbucks best interests to endorse gay marriage in the state of Washington--or ask courts to overturn DOMA??

If you haven't yet, go to DumpStarbucks.com--and send your friends. Thank-you!

    Regardless of your particular difficulties in life, whether you struggle with SSA, promiscuity, single motherhood or whatever, we can all agree that supporting marriage between a man and a woman is a cornerstone of society, children and families. That is the issue, not SSA.

    Sorry, Bryce. I was attempting to illustrate the ridiculousness of "Resist's" understanding of sexuality. You just got caught in the crosshairs.

    Brad -

    I'm saying that the reason that the State and society encourage marriage is because of the likelihood of procreation when a man and a woman have sex. It is a protective measure to help assure that kids are brought up by both their mom and dad, and it helps assure that moms and dads take responsibility for their offspring so that the government/taxpayers do not have to.

    As one who was lured into homosexual behavior, my problem with normalizing such behavior into mainstream society (via marriage or removal of criminalization) is that it subjects young children, sexually confused/experimental youth, and sexually obsessed adults to consider participating in the behavior and even adopting the behavior to define themselves. Male promiscuity knows no bounds in the homosexual lifestyle and leads to the spread of deadly disease. Parents become broken hearted when their children decide to give up their procreative capacity to participate in dangerous sodomy. Homosexual "marriage" leads to attacks on religious organizations who are responsible for great charitable works, placing more burden and ceding more power to government. I could go on, but leave it at that.

    Ha, ha, I DO have a degree in biology! And out of all of those courses in zoology, anatomy, physiology, biochem, genetics, etc.... not one of my teachers ever mentioned that homosexuality. I suppose the reason for that is because homosexuality is an anomaly, and you have to understand the norm before you can understand the abnorm. Several of my friends who couldn't hack the biology courses ended up moving to major in psychology, where, no doubt, homosexuality was discussed ad infinitum since mental disorders is a common topic in that field of study.

    God created men and women, equipped to join together, create children, and perpetuate humanity. He gave all of us the power of free will; the power to use or abuse what gifts he has given us. We have the equipment, we know what it's for, and yet some of us choose to ignore that fact and participate in bizarre use of our anatomy with no purpose.

    I wouldn't get all excited about having HATE in your hearts.
    Are there not some children or elderly you need to go help? Or has that part gotten lost in the spreading of HATE.
    Awww poor bullies. I personally am glad you keep spouting more and more; it shows people/world just who you are. Feed the HATE beast.

    PS SOOOO how ever did your hate campaign against Disney work out? How many people are boycotting Disney again? uuhu.

    a few facts here might be nice,

    1) Starbucks has every right to treat its employees equally and support legislation that (SSM) treats them equally
    2) Starbucks is a hippy- liberal coffee company from liberal Washington State, supporting SSM is not a stretch for them, nor is it thumbing their noses at anyone.
    3) Starbucks supported Civil Unions in Washington State a few years ago and although NOM fought it and lost, NOM did not boycott Starbucks
    4) Both Nike and Microsoft also support SSM....is NOM going to stop wearing NIKE sneakers and using Windows Operating systems on their computers?
    5) 58% of Fortune 500 companies support marriage equality or same sex partner benefits.

    ...just thought everyone should take a step back and realize that this is not that surprising, not that big of a deal, and lastly the "free market" has spoken....Since Starbucks came out in support of SSM (over 60 days ago) their profits have acutally increased.

    Good luck with the boycott though!

    I think I'll be giving Starbucks more business than ever!

    And to those of you with the whole - same-sex couples shouldn't be allowed to marry because they can't procreate argument. I'm glad to know that my marriage to my loving husband is null and void by your standards, because we have struggled with infertility. Nice logic, morons....

    @Michael C -

    Not sure what you think is ridiculous about men learning how to be men from other men. Heck, in ancient Sparta, men were taught to be homosexual by other men. Oh, but that's different, right? Right?

    “Homosexual” and “heterosexual” can only make even a modicum of sense if “sex” means nothing more than carnal coupling in its myriad ways and is no longer associated with the natural complementary relation of men and women. To have recourse to this definition is, however, to rely on the social-constructivist relativism that drives the sexual revolution, which is an absurd basis for the assertion that “homosexuality” is an innate condition.

    To deny that marriage is natural does not make the contrary alternatives “natural” in its stead (to assert thus is to commit the logical fallacy of affirming the consequent). If marriage is not natural, then nothing is, and the claim that a man is “homosexual” by nature undermines the very basis on which the term has been erected, because if “sex” is no more than erotic acts and urges, nothing permanent or intrinsic can be built on the shifting sands of “gender.”

    Hi, ResistSSA

    I was not aware that all men in ancient Greece were homosexual. Is this why their civilization ended? No babies were being made?

    The TRULY exciting news is that over 250,000 people have signed in support of Starbucks' decision .. and as of this afternoon something like 18,000 have signed in support of NOM. Borrowing a song from :Your Arm Is too Short to Box With God" .. Nom, friends .. :"Maybe God is Trying To Tell You Something".
