Starbucks promotes homosexual agenda with coffee cup
One of the latest coffee cups being sold at Starbucks has a pro-homosexuality message.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--After nearly a decade of lying low, Starbucks has reentered the homosexual rights movement in a few ways that have put at least one conservative watchdog group on alert.
The world‚Äôs most famous coffee shop chain has begun a program called ‚ÄúThe Way I See It,‚ÄĚ which is a collection of thoughts, opinions and expressions provided by notable figures that now appear on Starbucks coffee cups, according to the chain‚Äôs website.
But one particular quote -- #43 -- blatantly pushes the homosexual agenda. It‚Äôs by Armistead Maupin, who wrote ‚ÄúTales of the City,‚ÄĚ a bestseller-turned-PBS drama advocating the homosexual lifestyle, and it reads:
‚ÄúMy only regret about being gay is that I repressed it for so long. I surrendered my youth to the people I feared when I could have been out there loving someone. Don‚Äôt make that mistake yourself. Life‚Äôs too [expletive] short.‚ÄĚ...
Attention!...Attention! Phoenix from somewhere's ville, Starbucks actions of allowing someone to promote "gay pride" is no different than the actions by Adolf to promote his propaganda to the world! Do you think that Starbucks would allow a Christian like myself to say that homosexuality is an abomination, repent of your sins and turn to Jesus Christ?
"Paper cups with Hebrew writing disturbed both employees and medical staff at King Khaled National Guard Hospital on Saturday. The catering subcontractor for the hospital coffee shops began using them on Saturday after their usual supply ran out.
"We were shocked and angry," said an employee. "How can Israeli products be allowed and how did they enter this hospital?" he asked. . . .
The paper cups were quickly withdrawn from use but might there not be other, less obvious, Israeli products in our shops and marketplaces? "
Maybe the U.S. can help out, and send them a batch of the Sodombucks cups in replacement...
Phoenix, you said to Engineer, "Thank you for proving my point. You obviously didn't read what I said. Your response makes no sense whatsoever in light of my comment and is exactly the emotion-filled, devoid-of-intelligence, knee-jerk reaction that is exactly what I‚Äôm talking about." You are a victim of your own theology by which you say basically of setting standards of judgement. Your comments towards Engineer are the typical responses of a humanist who is blinded to their OWN SINS. Homosexuality is an abomination to the LORD (Leviticus 18:22)and the Bible clearly states it. If you exegetically read Romans 1:20-32 in the light of Scripture, you'll possibly understand. Question, what is the ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY by which man should judge society? A) The knowledge of God or B)the knowledge of man?
Phoenix: You obviously didn't read what I said. Your response makes no sense whatsoever in light of Jesus' comment that the term 'hypocrite' is NOT what Jesus would call you: he'd say you are a swine or dog:"give not that which is holy unto the dogs, nor cast ye your pearls before swine". THIS is the terminus of the Matt. 7: description of hypocrites. And your reaction to the 'pearls' of God's word proves it. Jesus would say you are a sodomite and justly sentenced to hell. And your avoidance of that fact, shown by the WORD that the Lord Jesus Christ gave, is exactly the emotion-filled, devoid-of-intelligence, knee-jerk reaction that is exactly what Jesus Christ was talking about when he labelled `hypocrites': "dogs" & "swine"(Matt.7)=Sodomites who can't see their face in the mirror of God's law.
Thank you for proving my point. You obviously didn't read what I said. Your response makes no sense whatsoever in light of my comment and is exactly the emotion-filled, devoid-of-intelligence, knee-jerk reaction that is exactly what I‚Äôm talking about.
Matt. 10 15Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Matt. 10:23And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. Mark 6: 11And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Luke 10: 12But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. 13Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. 15And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. 16He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me..."
2 Pe.2:6And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 7And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds 9The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 10But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Jude 7Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Phoenix: No, read earlier in the 'Sermon':the word Jesus had for them was Sodomites, Matt. 5:18 "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." Luke 17:29But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
Jesus thus affirmed the judgement of sodomites as correct, and used it as an example of the destruction of the wicked in the last days. Similar to Truman saying, `the Japanese will suffer the fate of Dresden': he thus compares judgement on the evil of emperor worship with judgement on the Nazis.
Dt.29:23And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath: 1 Ki.14:24And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel." REMEMBER: JESUS IS THE AUTHOR OF THE OLD TESTAMENT : AND the GOD(2nd Person of Trinity) OF THE OLD TESTAMENT .
It's really tiresome how you evangelicals freak out. You know, homosexuality IS going to be accepted by the secular world. Get used to it. Same way heterosexual sex outside of marriage was accepted... and apparently "gotten used to" by evangelicals, as I don't hear the caustic, hateful remarks about men and women involved in what your Bible calls "sin".
Why don't you concentrate first on eliminating your own sin, then that of your church? (Does that sound familiar to anyone here?) Bet there are plenty "fornicators" and people into pornography in the pew next to you... yet ya'll have to concentrate a ton of energy on people that don't even profess to believe what you believe. I think a guy named Jesus had a name for that. Was it hypocrite?
Lindsay EBlen READ the post right before yours: A woman repents, saying, " I could have contributed as much as $4,160 to a company that supports the volunteer work of child abusers..." IN DIRECT contact with KIDS! and YOU don't care that she NOW shows Godly wisdom? AND you belittle this repentance. How does this show love?
Well it looks like yet another company has been deceived into believing Satan's lie that it is 'OK to be gay.' Allow me to translate the Satanic message on this coffee cup for you:
"My only regret about being [a filthy sodomite] is that I [denied my ungodly lusts] for so long. I surrendered my youth to [God's truth] when I could have been out there [fornicating with a fellow pervert.] Don't make that mistake yourself. Life's too [expletive] short."
Wrong. Be sure to make this "mistake" yourself. Hell's too [expletive] hot!
do you people realize that you are all pontificating over where you will purchase your coffee? How does this show love? how does this serve anyone? forgive? care for orphans and widows? I am so embarrassed that all this silly angry talk is found on a website frequented by people who claim to be followers of the way of Jesus.
Joshua Tussing how true are you... you said.. ".I can't drink it straight.."
from: http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=45694 Starbucks: A habit easily broken
By Meghan Kleppinger
she says "I overestimated, but discovered that if I drink five grande lattes a week for a year, the total number of lattes would equal 260, coming to a total cost of $1,040. So, in my four post-college years, I could have contributed as much as $4,160 to a company that supports the volunteer work of child abusers, "Pride" events, abortionists, and do I really need to go on? Back to that marketing director's quote: "We're committed to supporting things that matter to our employees and our customers." Um ... HELLO, I am a customer, too!
she goes on to say
"As I was searching the Internet, I saw a link to a site with words no Christian girl should repeat. I didn't have to enter to read this: "Folks, if Starbucks is 'too liberal' for you then don't buy their @#$# percent*# coffee."
Thanks for the tip! "Folks," what you do is up to you, but as for me and my habit, I will no longer support Starbucks. "
they HATE Christians!
& RE: their "bitter' coffee James 3:11Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
I called the Starbucks headquarters. I asked them, "Who is the lady that you use on your company logo?" They told me that "it's a siren" - you know - a demon (from Greek mythology) that sings like a beautiful woman so that sailors will steer their ships toward the voices and crash their ships on the dangerous, rocky coast. Enough said.
Ford: "Not only is Starbucks sponsoring "Pride" week, but an event that places innocent children in the middle of sexually explicit materials ... and registered child molesters will be there running the show? If Starbucks is doing this knowingly, it is blatant irresponsibility, and if they are doing it unknowingly, it is irresponsible of them not to have done their homework. I started pacing back-and-forth, and all I could think was "Starbucks hates children." also: "Starbucks hates Christians." 1 Cor. 10:21"Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord‚Äôs table, and of the table of devils. 22Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?
