The latest Internet outrage in the “war against Christians” is that Starbucks will no longer use a Christmas-themed paper cup. No more “jazzy” Santas, no more snowflakes, no more reindeer — just a plain red, green and white cup. According to Jeffrey Fields, Starbuck’s vice president for design and content, “This year we wanted to usher in the holidays with a purity of design that welcomes all of our stories.” “We’re embracing the simplicity and the quietness of it. It’s a more open way to usher in the holiday,” he said. Bah, Humbug!
Far from a silent night, this action has angered so many on social media sights like Facebook. This coming after many already have been alienated from Starbucks over its stance on same-sex marriage and Planned Parenthood.
