Jonathan Baker Explains NOM's Dump Starbucks Campaign to the Christian Post

 

The Christian Post interviews Jonathan Baker, director of NOM's Corporate Fairness project:

The National Organization for Marriage has announced that it is launching a boycott of Starbucks, the international coffee chain, along with its affiliates.

NOM decided to organize a boycott, dubbed the "Dump Starbucks" campaign, because the company's corporate leadership actively supported efforts to legalize same-sex marriage.

Jonathan Baker, director of NOM's Corporate Fairness Project, told The Christian Post that Starbucks' support for same-sex marriage goes beyond a mere statement from an executive.

"The support is not just the personal endorsement of a senior executive, but is the official corporate position of the company," said Baker.

"Obviously this position does not reflect the views of all customers and employees and the NOM protest and dumpstarbucks.com is designed to enable these customers and employees to have a voice."
