Dump Starbucks - Why dump Starbucks?
Don't get the wrong idea . . . I truly love"d" Starbucks, but this is a deal breaker for me.
There is only so much this little Christian girl can TOLERATE. If you want to support gay marriage to me that's like sticking your toes across the proverbial line in the sand. Saying that you will serve your coffee to everyone regardless of their sexual orientation, is to say "Love all people". Which how can you be a Christian and NOT agree with that?
But to blatantly say that traditional marriage is wrong and if you support traditional marriage you should sell your shares and buy into another company?
Well, Starbucks, you just lost my support.
Your stance to say that traditional marriage is wrong or even to say that traditional marriage is rated higher than gay marriage is wrong?? Really?
Just how many gay people do you think there are in America?
10% (and that's on the high end)
Most estimates show 5% of THE WORLD is gay.
Why would you make a statement like this knowing that this is such a small percentage of your customer base. Even if 100% of your customer base is tolerant of your stand on gay marriage, to blatantly say traditional marriage proponents should dump their stocks? Really?
DISCLAIMER: Not that Santa would let me buy much Starbucks, because he "hates" their coffee. But it was my little guilty pleasure, when I found myself out shopping without him or in the airport on the way to see my girls. But that's fine, I'll live right through it.
Sorry for this off-the-wall random post.
We now resume our regularly scheduled programming. Thanks for listening!
