At Starbucks' annual meeting, CEO Howard Schultz told shareholder Tom Strobhar that he should stop buying shares in the corporation because he does not support "marriage equality." (Wait a second, when did it change from "gay marriage" or "same-sex marriage"?)
After Mr. Strobhar noted that Starbucks' sales and earnings plummeted after National Organization for Marriage announced its "Dump Starbucks" boycott, CEO Schultz said:
Mr. Strobhar should be commended, not ostracized, for standing up for an important societal institution. Marriage is unfortunately attacked and made less significant every day by our nation's government, media, Left-leaning churches, TV shows, and public schools. Nowadays, people like Mr. Strobhar are unfortunately few in number, since our culture encourages people to sacrifice their values to attain popularity, money, and fame.
We at Counter Cultured stand strongly with Mr. Strobhar. We are devastated to see that Starbucks is pursuing a political agenda that only draws away more customers and further divides Americans.
It is time to actively boycott Starbucks again. Sign the "Dump Starbucks" petition, tell Starbucks to forgo its political agenda, and buy coffee from small businesses or corporations that do not use YOUR money to fund morally relativist causes. Starbucks will again suffer financially for openly discouraging Americans from buying its coffee.
Nonsense only stops when money is lost. Maybe Starbucks will decide to forgo its political agenda and stick to business by facing another boycott from the American people.
