There has been a real song and dance in the last couple of days over the stupid red cup that Starbucks have released for this holiday season. The whole thing has gone viral and holy cow, are people ever making a fuss?!
From what I can gather, the story was picked up by an evangelist called Joshua Feuerstein. He got his panties in a bunch over the fact that this year, Starbucks has gone for a minimalist red cup and not one with “festive” pictures or slogans on it. Feuerstein is encouraging people to go into Starbucks and tell people that their name is “Merry Christmas”. The baristas will then write merry Christmas onto their cup. Asshole way to protest! After all, there is no better way to protest a company than to continue to purchase its products!
Everywhere I have looked over the last couple of days, there has been nothing but one form or another of bitching over this whole stupid cup fiasco. I have to be honest with you, it’s really starting to get on my last nerve!!!
My friends know I’m far from being a Christian, but it really boils my piss when I see sheeple jumping on the bandwagon and using this whole story as an excuse to slag off Christians/Christianity. As if ALL Christians are responsible for this. The Huffington Post have implied all Christians are responsible for the fuss! Huff Post spurious article Lets get one thing straight here. It is NOT all Christians. It was ONE Christian. ONE!!! Then some idiots jumped on the bandwagon and poof! The story is viral. The number of Christians who feel this way is greatly in the minority. The vast majority of Christians simply do not give two shits about a stupid coffee cup!
Christians don’t care!
So while everyone is getting their knickers in a knot over this issue, the humanitarian crisis in Syria continues. Indonesia is burning to the damned ground! People who have a chance to make a real difference to the future, like Donald Trump? All they can think about is rattling the sabre for their own publicity ends! La Donald blows his own horn again! All these assholes can think about is a fucking coffee cup? Get a grip people!!!
