Fighting Starbucks

I’d like people to know why I don’t buy coffee at Starbucks. One minor reason is the cost. If I drank five lattes a week for a year, the total would be $1,040. That’s a lot of money. Another minor reason is that I prefer to support small, local businesses. But the main reason is that Starbucks supports myriad liberal causes to which I refuse to contribute. They are supporters of Planned Parenthood, a pro-abortion organization. They are also supporters, all over the country, of Gay Pride events, where children are exposed to sexually explicit materials. Their paper cups are inscribed with quotes from liberal celebrities and Starbucks contributes heavily to liberal candidates running for office. What more do you need to know? Go to World Net Daily and look for an article posted Aug. 10 , 2005, by M. Kleppinger titled “Starbucks: a habit easily broken.” It’s all in there. Starbucks may support whom it pleases – but I will not help by supporting Starbucks.
