The War on Christmas: Starbucks Should Put Bible Verses on Their Coffee Cups

starbucks war on christmas

Starbucks is accused by the religious-right of waging war on Christmas. What better way for Starbucks to placate Jesus-is-the-Reason-for-the-Season Evangelicals than to put Bible verses on their signature red and green coffee cups. Nothing like a verse from the inspired, inerrant Word of God to go with your coffee, right?

    The religious right can never be wrong. Has God ever made a mistake? I call all prayer-warriors to arms! The doors of Mordor are opening! The drive-through is drugging the masses and murdering sweet baby Jesus.

    Oh gosh, I didn’t know this was real, ROFLMAO! I don’t know diddly about bible verses. I attended Sunday school as a kid–AME Church–they’d ask each kid to recite a bible verse. Most said, “Jesus wept.” I usually said something else, but I couldn’t remember it now even if you held a gun to my head. They sure never got to this one, LOL! Thanks for starting my day with a good laugh.

    I think this would be another good Ezekiel verse to put on those Christmas cups:

    ”’Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.”

    Ezekiel 16:49-50

      I think this one is a winner. Because most of those nuts screaming about what Starbucks puts on their cups wouldn’t be able to SAY. A. WORD. (Although the salacious verses are pretty awesome.)

    To tell U the truth, Christ Evangelicals would not let us celebrate Darwin’s BD. I remember one wrote in that a REAL scientist like Isaac Newton should be celebrated instead. So. Neil De Grassy Tyson took this enangelist up on his offer. Apparently the evangelical didn’t realize that Newton’s BD fell on 25th Dec. So Tyson blogged to all Internet science buffs that centuries ago, a little boy was born who transformed the entire of mankind by setting down the mathematical foundations of this modern world by the time he reached his 30th BD. What better way to remember this man than by celebrating together with me on 25th Dec.
    Having said that, he received over the period of a month (Dec) about 2,000 pieces of hate mail per day, totalling some 40,000 pieces by Christmas Eve (now recognized as Newton’s Eve) which is now currently being celebrated by our groups here in Alberta. We don’t celebrate the men of broken promises from political or religious background. We celebrate men/ women of science who actually accomplished something for mankind. It’s high time we told these religious zealots to stop sticking their noses into our celebrations!!!
