Starbucks backs "Gay Marriage"

BREAKING: Starbucks coffee co. officially backs gay ‘marriage’

Mon Jan 30, 2012 16:12 EST

SEATTLE, January 30, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In news that will come as a heavy blow to many coffee lovers, Starbucks has officially backed homosexual ‘marriage.'  

In a January 24 letter to U.S. partners, Kalen Holmes, Starbucks executive vice president, expresses support for the homosexual “marriage” legislation in Washington State.  The “important legislation,” says Holmes “is core to who we are and what we value as a company.”

The legislation has been decried by pro-family advocates as a major threat to freedom, since it would force religious institutions to open the doors of their facilities for homosexual “marriages.”

The letter, which boasts of the company’s LGBT activism begins, “Starbucks is proud to join other leading Northwest employers in support of Washington State legislation recognizing marriage equality for same-sex couples.”  The letter concludes: “We look forward to seeing this legislation enacted into law.

Let every believer in our Lord continue to pray for those who feel that God has re-defined marriage and lowed His standards to accommodate the Worlds view of morality.

Drats! and I like Starbucks coffee! Now I have one more reason not to drink it. ~ you know they support "planned parenthood" too. My kids forbid me to buy it. Aren't they wonderful! :)

It's not that I think gays are bad. I don't! I know gay men and I like them. They are very kind people. ~ I truly don't think the gay part of hell is hotter then the fornication or adulterer side. I don't think God hates gays. . .how could he??? sigh... It is sad to me that these immoral issues are shoved in our face constantly. We must accept them or else. I really think this constant shoving of accept this accept that is terrible tough on the human spirit. As they would say in the south it's the Devils work. I think it is. I resent most the law makers that tell me they for the sanctity of marriage with a wife on one arm and a lover on the other ~ It makes me sick to think immorality is unfashionable.

I thank God we are in a strong parish with strong leaders. Ours sons and daughters need this... Marriage should be considered a sacrament not a right.

Thank you for posting this. . .I'm getting down of my box now!

Bro. Lloyd - The Bible is clear on this subject. Homosexuality is an abomination to God! I hurt for America that we are going down this slippery slope of disobedience and sin. I know the world loves to hate those who stand for the Word of God but we must defend God as we are his ambassadors. Great post. To God be the glory!

Man, I love their coffee, now I'll have to find some other place. I sure don't want to support a company that backs up homosexuality!!! Dang! Why would they do that.

I think the bible is pretty clear on this subject and the Lord hasn't changed his mind on the subject as we see it condemned throughout the old and new testaments. Starbucks has always supported liberal causes in the past so really this doesn't come as a shock to me. I've stopped being their customer for a while now, and this only confirms I made the right choice. I can't support a company financially who is in complete conflict with who I am and what I believe.

In man's own wisdom, everything seems right but how scary when compared to that of God's! I just pray that many God-loving people will stand up for what is right in His eyes. Blessings.

Their support gives credence to the idea that homosexuality is ok and that the "establishment" gives the green light to kids to experiment with sex. Its irresponsible on Starbucks' part. If they do agree with gay marriage, they should keep it private. Everyone of us has a duty to protect the children, not to be their downfall.

Well, I love my coffee, but I won't be drinking any from Starbucks! Hit 'em where it hurts, right on the bottom line.

RCUBEs: 1 Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. It's so true...

There was a time not too long ago when most churches opposed equal rights for African Americans. Lets keep that in mind when discussing this issue. Unfortunately, churches are often the last ones to come around and support equal rights.

Also, if you boycott Starbucks, how about boycotting the computer that you are using. Dell, Intel and Apple have all taken similar stances as well.

My wife doesn't like their coffee and I don't like coffee at all, so they haven't been getting any support from us anyway.

The world will do what the world will do. Maybe the powers that be at Starbucks really believe it - or - maybe it's another way to increase sales. Either way, let us not forget that Starbucks is not the Church.

Pray for them, yes. Boycott them if you feel you must, but I will remind everyone that the last time I was in a Starbucks, there were two men sitting together, having coffee, and discussing the Lord and His Word. The Bible was open, and there was a very engaging, very compelling discussion of all the Lord has done for His people! I am glad they have chosen not to boycott. Remember, faithful, that the Mission Field will not always be pretty or accommodating, but it will always be conducive to witness.

Many of the churches that demanded segregation were the same churches that now support homosexuality. They were just as much in contradiction to the scriptures then as they are now.

The final authority must be God's, not man's opinion if we are to please God.

While I don't like coffee, it is troubling that support of such sin is now viewed as desirable. Isaiah 5:20 warns, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
