Why this will be the last Starbucks I drink.

imageI don’t make a habit of photographing my food or drinks, and I certainly don’t post them for others to be subjected to, but the cup of Starbucks in this picture is significant because it will be my last.

I shrugged my shoulders as Starbucks bullied small coffee companies (e.g. here and here).

I looked the other way when Starbucks sued small coffee companies (e.g. here and here).

I ignored the fact that Starbucks uses GMO products.

And I rolled my eyes when Starbucks tried to ram race issues down my throat.

But now I discovered something about my favorite coffee chain that is too egregious to look past; too evil to ignore

  1. Starbucks has been a consistent advocate of homosex for years – plus their coffee is way to expensive and and IT’S NOT EVEN GOOD!

    It’s fine and good that you are done with Starbucks. It’s too bad you waited this long 🙂

    Manfred – Paul disagrees with the idea of boycotting non-believers because of sexual immorality. Do you also suggest that Christians boycott any store where management is covetous?

    I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person. For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.” -1 Corinthians 5:9-13 NKJV

  3. I am personally one who does not wish to be defined by what I am against. On the surface, boycotts may seem like a good idea. Company A is involved with XYZ sin, so I will not give Company A my money. However, when we look a little deeper, you can probably find that every company is connected to ABC or XYZ sins somehow.

    So the question then is: at what point do I no longer buy anything?

    With that in mind, I must draw a line somewhere, and that line is in the murder of innocents. I can best sum up my conviction on this matter with the following quote from the article:

    “Just like I wouldn’t have been able (in good conscience) to patronize a company that was directly supporting the execution of ‘undesirables’ in Germany in the 1940s, I can no longer support my favorite coffee establishment knowing that they are directly supporting the execution of ‘undesirables’ in America in 2015.”

    Although I am against the ‘christian boycott’, I do see where you are coming from and appreciate your writing about this. This world is so lost. My comment was more towards Manfred (who I generally enjoy and appreciate in the Lord) on boycotting solely due to sexual immorality. I am sure there are a lot of fornicators in a lot of companies. We would need to physically leave this word to avoid all sinners.

    God bless you in Christ -Jim
