Bee-otched For: crying over coffee

It's sad when there's worse things out there to worry about than coffee and yet, that's what the Jebus freaks love to do.

Many Christians are pissed over the fact that Starbucks has decided to eliminate their traditional holiday coffee cups and replace them with a simple red design. In years past, the coffee giant would put ornaments and other festive designs on them to celebrate the Christmas season.

According to Starbucks, the reason for the lack of holiday design is that they want their customers to use the blank design to simply "tell their own stories". Weird answer, but it makes more sense than bitching about the lack of pictures of snowmen or Christmas trees. Plus, many Christians are even having their baristas write down "Merry Christmas" as their names when they order.

Look, Christians need to know that there's other coffee joints out there than Starbucks. Don't like their policies? Shop someplace else. Heck, I think Chick-fil-A serves coffee and they're very Christian. Why not check out The Coffee Beanery, Tim Horton's or even Dunkin' Donuts?

Here's an idea: don't like Starbucks' cups? START YOUR OWN COFFEE SHOP! As long as the coffee itself tastes good, it might do well! I know that there's Muslims who get pissed when supermarkets sell pork products like chops, roasts, ham and good 'ol bacon. However, there are Muslim-owned grocers that specialize in serving their people. Heck, one here in Michigan is even a Spartan Store.

Point is, when people thump their religion onto other peoples' businesses, it's hell on everybody. This is why we have a little thing called "capitalism". Don't like it? Don't buy it! Remember a few weeks ago when Rite Aid decided to cave to right winged pressure and started putting blinders over Cosmo? Well now, Walgreens is buying them out. Bowing to Jebus wannabes will not save a business. Besides, like the graphic says up above, they have other things to worry about than bitching over a coffee cup.

Jesus: shaking his head at stupidity everyday since 33 A.D.
