Feel like I'm still too young for coffee, so I won't be buying any. Not bad colors, though.

Solo cups have been red for years, no one thought they were "attacking Christmas"... People are just too sensitive these days.

The same way I feel about red cups in general no matter what time of the year it is. I wasn't aware it was possible to get excited or angry because a cup is red.


Same here

Here are the steps to create your own "controversy"

1. Find a subject that people feel passionately about in spite of the lack of substance. Fox News is good inspiration.
2. Find a target, doesn't matter who, so long as it appears like it falls in line with the "controversy"
3. Make a video, scream and rant about how horrible the target of the controversy is for not falling in line with the subject people feel passionately about. Don't hesitate to edit and intersperse out of context clips to make your point, truth and honesty are not a priority.
4. Post it on youtube, and facebook it to several of your friends.
5. Sit back and enjoy the "controversy" you have made.

It doesn't matter. The coffee tastes the same in it and it still costs the same.

1) Don't go to Starbucks
2) Don't have thanksgiving
3) If I did go to Starbucks, I wouldn't give a shit what colour the cup was

not really a good example, chick fil-a was paying millions into anti-gay lobbying.
starbucks is just using a different marketing campaign for one winter that really is just trying to be neutral.

but yes, it is bitching about nothing.......
as a business they have a right to not say or do whatever they don't want to say or do.
just like I don't have to wish you a merry Christmas, they shouldn't have to.

"Starbucks now has plain red cups because they hate Jesus!"

I mean, there could not possibly be any other fathomable reason and the higher ups are so focused on hating Jesus that they change the cups to push their point across, right?

This is a blatant assault on our traditional consumerist morals. And it taunts bulls, who can't drink coffee anyway because it's bad for them.

As someone who is a Conservative Christian, I really couldn't care less about this red cup "issue". I think this picture sums up my feelings, and about 99.99% of all other Christians feelings, on this red cup "issue".





Literally, nobody!

Well, I am outraged. OUTRAGED!

I mean, how dare Starbucks does this...afterall nothing says Jesus like a snowflakes falling and Santa fellating a reindeer because something something MURRICA! as penguins drink their Christmas blends with their guns at their sides! After all, it purely says in the Bible, the three wise men bought myrrth, incense and pumpkin spice!

RED IS FOR DA GAYS AND MOOOSLIMSSSS. CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION!!!!
