What Coffee is Your Church Drinking?

By Charlie Butts

National Organization for Marriage (NOM) is continuing to encourage churches and believers to "Dump Starbucks."

Maggie Gallagher, co-founder of the traditional marriage advocacy group, says her group launched its boycott because of Starbucks' strong endorsement of the homosexual agenda (see earlier story).

"I was there at the board meeting this year in Seattle, where we asked the CEO, Howard Schultz, if it's really true that 'gay marriage' is now core, as one of its executives said, to the Starbucks brand, and he said yes -- that that was approved at the highest levels," she reports. "They've endorsed 'gay marriage' in the state of Washington; they've signed a legal brief, asking courts to overturn the federal definition of marriage."

Dump Starbucks (NOM)In just the first week of its Dump Starbucks campaign, more than 25,000 people signed the pledge. Now, Christians are being encouraged to find out if Starbucks is being served in their churches.

"We're going to speak up loud and clear to Howard Schultz and this insular group of Seattle liberals about whether a worldwide consumer company really should be making gay marriage core to its brand," Gallagher asserts.

She points out that Seattle's Best Coffee is also a Starbucks brand, and the NOM co-founder says additional plans for the campaign will unfold soon.
