    That's fine. I much prefer the coffee I make in my $10 coffeemaker at home to overpriced, foofy coffee that, in the end, tastes just like . . . coffee. If I want various flavors, there's all kinds of flavored creamers out there.

    There's a "no blogs" rule unless pre-approved. We'll let this one slide.

    Then you shall continue to not have mine.

    That cracked me up, Ears. I don't go to Starbucks, but there's one just down the way from my house and in all this time I've never paid any attention to their logo. I'll check it out now, though, and I'm sure I'll join you in not liking it.

    At what point did we go from being the majority of the population to the "evil people"?

    I like a good cup of coffee.

    I have never had a cup of Starbucks.

    Not likely I ever will have a cup of their coffee at the rate they're going.

    I do believe selling shares in this company may be very sound advice. Hopefully every God fearing Bible believing Christian will refuse to give Starbucks their business, which would cause their bottom line, and their shares, to drop.




    My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
    For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.


    Baruch haba b'Shem Yahweh!!

    I think we need to inform those Bible believing Christians exactly how Starbucks feels about us. I'm trying to think of ways to get the word out.

    This makes me want to cry. Too late. I am crying. I am so very disappointed. I actually love the products at Starbucks, - love the coffee, and have always enjoyed the comfortable environment and culture. Of course, my definition of diversity, is different personalities, hair color, etc. I didn't realize their culture included what this article is saying until now.
    Sad, very sad. I have very fond memories of Starbucks. It was a daily sto for me for many years, and often I would go for a mocha latte, and sit and read. I really enjoyed it. Not only is it sad for them and the world that they are embracing same-sex marriage and setting this example, but also I am sad for me, because now I have to say good-bye to what has been a big part of my life for a very long time.
    Come Lord Jesus and bring us home soon!

    Starbuck's knows where their bread is buttered................liberals. They also know that conservative Christians will not stand together and no one in a national leadership media position will have the influence to push a boycott through and make a lot of noise. I'd even guess a lot of people that are 100% against homosexual marriage that buy Starbucks coffee will still buy it.

    It's the female demonic alternative to the Procter & Gamble logo.

    I'm sorry for your loss and I'm not being sarcastic. It seems that every day we Christians find something else we need to avoid if we are to be consistent and to avoid hypocrisy or giving support to the enemies of our Saviour. Losing Starbucks isn't a problem for me. I never cared much for them and have only spent money on any of their prodcts a handful of times over all these years. But tomorrow might bring to light something that matters to me that I will have to give up. It is comforting to know that we will soon be home with our Lord, Jesus and these things will no longer concern us.

    Me, too. I love Starbucks, and have for over a decade. I love the yummy drinks and the atmosphere. I love the beans we grind at home to brew our own coffee. I am also extremely disappointed, as hubby and I were just there yesterday getting drinks. He also read the article last night, and no longer wants to patron Starbucks. I absolutely stand for traditional marriage and I don't want to give my business to a company that is so blatantly disrespectful to Christian conservatives, but I still love and want their products. I'm not usually a whiner, but this seems so unfair. I'm terribly sad.

    I saw someone on Facebook had a "get the word out" posting. They must have "liked" the article below.

    I posted a link on Facebook. Had one person then share it, one person make a comment that "could be why [they] never really liked Starbucks" and another who was going to go out and get them some Starbucks.

    Don't do Starbucks a lot, but enjoy it. I wonder what would happen if you wore a T-Shirt that said "I support traditional marriage.."

    Would they refuse to serve you?

    I sort of doubt it... some interesting ramifications there...
