Christians Angry That Starbucks’ Cups Are Too Secular
The minimalist red cup design is somehow taking way religious liberty.
…some Christian customers feel the coffee chain is oppressing their religion. In a viral Facebook post, one gruff-voiced customer dressed like Fred Durst circa 1999 wrote, “Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus,” then brags about “pranking” Starbucks by having them write “Merry Christmas” as his name on the cup. He also flashes a gun he brought into the coffee shop, disregarding Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz’ request that customers no longer bring firearms into their stores, even in states where open carry is permitted.
If Starbucks was actually trying to eliminate all signs of the holidays from their stores, why would they still be producing their popular Christmas blend along with seasonal favorites such as Gingerbread Latte and the beloved Peppermint Mocha?
