Starbucks How Dare YOU!!!!


I am sure many of you have seen this Starbucks debate on every social media forum and news channel the past few days. If you haven’t then I would say you either, haven’t been on any social media, haven’t watched the news, or have your head stuck somewhere dark.

Apparently, Christen’s are up in air about their choice of coffee mugs this holiday season.  Starbucks has chosen to go with a red mug, instead of their “red” mug with snow flakes, fir tree limbs, reindeer etc.  So, some people are saying Starbucks is taking Christ out of Christmas, that they have become “Jesus haters”.

Can someone explain how going to a “red” cup is taking Christ out of Christmas?  I do not see how this makes sense to myself.  What does Christ have to do with snow flakes, and reindeer or red cups, which by the way isn’t a “real” red. Starbucks has stated the cup ” is a two-toned ombré design, with a bright poppy color on top that shades into a darker cranberry below” Read more at

It should also be noted that Starbucks could not have removed any overtly Christian symbols from their cups, because they never used them to begin with. The holiday symbols Starbucks used between November and December every year on their cups typically feature general winter holiday symbols such as snowmen, carolers, and ornaments, which (although they may be associated with Christmas) are either secular in origin or not exclusively Christian.

If Starbucks was truly getting rid of Christ and declaring War on Christ, wouldn’t they get rid of EVERYTHING, every product they have which is Christmas oriented, such as: Starbucks® Advent Calendar 2015Red Holiday Cup OrnamentStarbucks® Dark Chocolate Peppermint GrahamsFloating Figurines Holiday Tumbler, 12 fl ozHoliday Trees Cold Cup, 16 fl oz and many others.  Plus, all the special holiday flavored drinks: Chestnut Praline Latte, Peppermint Mocha and Caramel Brulée Latte. If a two-tone Ombre` cup is representation of Christ then so are these other products.

With all this information known and all the arguing going – on my issue with all this is?

We have so many other things in this world to worry about, and the thing these people are worried about, and are fighting over in the world, during the season that is suppose to be about good will and brotherly love: when the bible says; “love thy neighbor as thy self” –    Yet people are fighting over A TWO-TONED OMBRE` CUP CUP!

In our country we have Thousands of veterans will spend Christmas day overseas while thousands more will spend it in the streets starving  or dying from exposure to the weather because we don’t have a solution to this issue, which is also partly due to lack of solution to the lack of Mental Health issues and care in the US.

Millions of children will eat their dinners at a facility due to being abandoned by their birth parents. Or 1 out of every 3 children will be spending their Christmas being abused by one or both of their parents, Yet people are fighting over A TWO-TONED OMBRE` CUP CUP!

The little gay boy or girl down the street or in your class is being bullied on a daily basis, or perhaps it is just the really quite geeky kid who has a stutter, to the point of suicide.  Yet people are fighting over A TWO-TONED OMBRE CUP CUP!

Thousands of inmates will spend the holidays in jail for non-violent, weed related crimes. Billions of animals will be slaughtered in dog fights, in animal shelters just to full to shelter them all because people can’t be bothered to have them spayed or neutered, buy them for gifts – then decided they are to much problem, etc.  Yet people are fighting over A TWO-TONED OMBRE CUP CUP!

This holiday is suppose to be about good will to all and love for man kind, yet here people are all over America (some who are ministers (Joshua Feuerstein) complaining about a company and their cup which really had NOTHING to do with Christ.  

I think a person on twitter stated it best when they wrote on twitter: “If you need a coffee chain to be your ambassador of Christ you need to re-examine your relationship w/God,” one Twitter critic.

Peace and Blessings:
