Starbucks CEO: “If You Support Traditional Marriage DON’T Buy Our Coffee”
Starbucks isn’t just supporting homosexual marriage…they are fighting AGAINST traditional marriage. This is a battle cry. A final assault of Liberalism before Conservatives make homosexual marriage illegal. This is like a Muslim call to prayer. Will you stand and fight for what God has proclaimed? Marriage is between ONE man and ONE woman!! If Starbucks wants a fight then it’s a fight they’ll get. Christians make up the majority in this country. Let’s return fire by DUMPING STARBUCKS!! Let’s make this the biggest mistake they’ve ever made! If every Christian stood up to this Starbucks would be FORCED to apologize. Do you agree?
According to The Washington Press:
During the Starbucks annual shareholders meeting, CEO Howard Schultz had a clear message to send to investors who don’t support gay marriage: he doesn’t want your business.
It’s one thing to stick to one’s beliefs, but it’s another thing to allow those beliefs to cross the line and become zealotry. It appears Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz crossed that line during the meeting, mixing his belief system with business.
Schultz went on to claim that Starbucks strives to “embrace diversity of all kinds.” He went on to tell a shareholder who stands behind tradition marriage to sell his shares and invest elsewhere.
Forbes reported that Schultz seemed hostile and intolerant of any shareholders who objected to gay marriage for moral or religious reasons.
During the meeting, shareholder Tom Strobhar (who founded the Corporate Morality Action Center) pointed out that after the company voiced its support for a referendum backing gay marriage in Washington state, a boycott by traditional marriage supporters caused a drop in sales revenue.
What do you think? Is this a bad move on Starbucks’ part?
