Welcome to the DumpStarbucks.com News!
This past week a pastor in Colorado made a video of himself dumping a cup of Starbucks coffee down the street curb drain. Apparently he had purchased it on his way to work shortly before hearing of Starbucks position in support of same-sex marriage and the DumpStarbucks.com campaign and decided he couldn't go through with drinking it, but wanted to make a statement instead.
When I saw this I thought to myself—why not have a little fun?
What you can do this week:
Make an inventive and fun home video of yourself or a friend "Dumping Starbucks" and send it in. As many as we can we'll post online so everyone can see and have a good laugh.
If you don't want to buy a cup of Starbucks (remember we are protesting them) then grab an empty cup from a coworker or friend and use that instead.
Keep what you do safe and legal, and kids should get permission from their parents or guardian before making a video and sending it in to [email protected].
Thank you to everyone who wrote on the Starbucks Facebook page questioning why the company does not respect the views of those who believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. There is no telling how many Starbucks customers saw those statements and heard for the first time that Starbucks is advocating for same sex marriage. If you have not already done so, feel free to post a question on the Starbucks Facebook wall asking why they do not respect the views of all customers.
This past week we saw a couple of developments in the DumpStarbucks.com campaign. World Net Daily and the UK Christian Institute both published articles on our campaign as we saw over 3,000 new signatures added to the online petition. People support marriage—they are just looking for a way to show that support. Forward this along to your friends so they have an opportunity to support marriage too!
Have a great week!
