STARBUCKS CHRISTMAS CONTROVERSY

  • By Cara Buckley

There has been quite a controversy over Donald Trump’s suggestion to boycott Starbucks over their new Christmas design for their cups. Instead of snowflakes and reindeer, the cups are plain red where the only design is their green mermaid logo.

In an interest turn of events, I didn’t hear about the event until I saw the backlash all over facebook. There are more speaking out in defense of Starbucks than there are against Starbucks.

How many people ARE worked up over Starbucks’ lack of Christmas’ decorations? Two. Joshua Feuerstein, the internet troll who started this entire outcry and Donald Trump, the most hateful, intolerant man to ever run for U.S. president.

Fortunately, the rest of the country understands the meaning of priority.

Here my question: Since when did it become Starbucks’ responsibility to spread the Christmas message?

That is the job of every “Christian” in the world? It is our divine calling, the Great Commission. How many have succeeded? How many souls can we hope to save this Christmas? Not many if we allow people like Donald Trump to speak for us.

Starbucks is a coffee house. Its their jobs to make delicious, over-priced coffee. Where’s the harm in that? Let them do their jobs.

Apparently, Donald Trump doesn’t want them to do their jobs. Donald Trump wants to take away their jobs. Boycott Starbucks and put thousands of innocent people out of work. He even admits he doesn’t care.

“Who cares? Who cares? Who cares?”

What an awful Christmas message.
