    Seems like every year now some Christians get freaked out over stuff like this. Sad.

    I don't care for starbucks, haven't been there in years overpriced crappy coffee. But I would buy a coffee just to piss off these assholes.

    What these people should be complaining about is the over-commercialization of Christmas.

    This all seems pretty silly to me.

    But take heart, people. To the best of my knowledge, in the 18,000 Roman Catholic parishes currently located in the U.S., this controversy was mentioned in Sunday sermons at exactly zero of them. ;) :D

    It's a Christian Holy Day. Vendors: Don't like Christians? Find the holiday offensive? Ignore the season altogether. Don't decorate your stores and turn off the crappy jazz Christmas music.

    If Christians are really looking for something to be offended by this year they can start with this one- most of the leading characters and actors are Jewish.

    Im actually on their side on this one. You don't have to be a bible thumper to realize that people are whoring out Christmas creating the corporate retail bolus of cash.

    They're not asking people to convert or to do anything other than to acknowledge that 25dec is Christmas.

    these people don't understand capitalism or Christmas for that matter

    but Starbucks still sucks because you can't just appropriate Italian culture for your greedy plans to fleece hipsters and trust fund kids

    bring in your own menorah and islamic symbols. past them discretely over the starbucks logos on the cups. drink the coffee and leave the cups outside where they can see them. the fireworks should be good.
