OneNewsNow: What Coffee is Your Church Drinking?

 

Charlie Butts of OneNewsNow interviews Maggie Gallagher about NOM's Dump Starbucks campaign (which has now passed 30,000 signatures):

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) is continuing to encourage churches and believers to "Dump Starbucks."

Maggie Gallagher, co-founder of the traditional marriage advocacy group, says her group launched its boycott because of Starbucks' strong endorsement of the homosexual agenda (see earlier story).

In just the first week of its Dump Starbucks campaign, more than 25,000 people signed the pledge. Now, Christians are being encouraged to find out if Starbucks is being served in their churches.

"We're going to speak up loud and clear to Howard Schultz and this insular group of Seattle liberals about whether a worldwide consumer company really should be making gay marriage core to its brand," Gallagher asserts.

She points out that Seattle's Best Coffee is also a Starbucks brand, and the NOM co-founder says additional plans for the campaign will unfold soon.

    Who needs people telling you what to think when all you want's a drink? No thanks.

    Does anyone know of a good Starbucks substitute for home coffee makers? Someone posted about one in a different thread, but I can't find it.

    NOM and their supporters disgust me. How can you think that our lifestyle directly affects you in any way??? You don't want SSM forced down your throat? Then why are you forcing "traditional marriage" down ours?! Get out of here with this. Starbucks is amazing for supporting marriage equality. There are actually MANY companies that support marriage equality and gay rights. You won't stop them. :)

    Emily,nobody should support "marriage equality",which should disgust everyone.
    It represents a harmful and undeserved
    shoving of your "lifestyle" down the public throat.

    I note that the Catholic Father Zuhlsdorf of the WDTPRS blog regularly promotes "Mystic Monk" coffee,made by an order of monks,naturally.

    Emily asks, "How can you think that our lifestyle directly affects you in any way???"'

    Well, I'm glad to hear one of you admit it's a "lifestyle." How would letting me marry my dog affect your lifestyle? It wouldn't? Ok, let me marry my dog.

    See how lame that argument is, Emily?

    You are aware that you are not required to get married, if you refuse to enter into marriage with a member of the opposite sex? If you want a relationship with a member of the same sex, you are not looking to get married. So, don't get married. Unless someone leads you to the alter by force, no one can "force traditional marriage down your throat." Thankfully, in the USA, your fellow citizens don't legalize forced marriages.
