Starbucks has gone way too far this time. Now that December is here, it was time for the liberal coffee company to release their annual “holiday” cups — and this year, they decided to include cherry-picked Bible verses in response to Christians’ rightful outrage over their previous offerings.
“People said that our cups didn’t properly honor Christmas, so we listened,” says Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson. “There are now Bible verses on every cup we sell through January 1, 2018.”
You might expect the cups to say something about Jesus, but the company decided to cherry-pick some verses that sound incredibly offensive out of context.
“There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses,” one cup quoting from Ezekiel reads.
“I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, she must be silent,” another cup says, quoting from Timothy.
“Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey,” says a cup containing part of a verse from 1 Samuel.
“Happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us / He who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks,” another quoting from Psalm 137 says.
As anyone who has picked up a Bible knows, there is more to these verses. Starbucks’ decision to triple down on their offensive holiday cups is beyond anything that we could have expected from them.
It’s time to boycott this company once and for all. Do not enter their establishments. Do not buy their products. It’s time for a total and complete shutdown of this evil corporation!
