“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Shut up and brew!

If you are stupid enough, or rich enough, or both, to pay $7 for a cup of Joe at Starbucks, perhaps you've been treated to that company's aggressive attempt to indoctrinate you in the ways of radical liberalism...

An Ohio woman is steaming after reading an anti-God message published on the side of a Starbucks coffee cup.

The message that got Michelle Incanno's blood boiling reads:

"Why in moments of crisis do we ask God for strength and help? As cognitive beings, why would we ask something that may well be a figment of our imaginations for guidance? Why not search inside ourselves for the power to overcome? After all, we are strong enough to cause most of the catastrophes we need to endure."

As if cramming atheism down the throats of it's customers wasn't bad enough, they also aggressively advance the homosexual agenda...

"My only regret about being gay is that I repressed it for so long. I surrendered my youth to the people I feared when I could have been out there loving someone. Don't make that mistake yourself. Life's too damn short."

She looks annoyed that she paid $7 for a cup of atheism.

Hat tip World Net Daily.

Why can't they just be happy saturating the Earth with their stupid, over-priced product?
Sadly there are several Starbucks within a 3-wood of where I work. I will not be patronizing them anytime soon.

Good call Ed. Another company to avoid. It disturbs me greatly that any major company puts out anti-God messages. I will not ever shop at Starbucks again, and will do all in my power to include my circle of friends with the boycott. By the way, they just opened a brand new store on the edge of my neighborhood. I hope it does no business.

It's the Starbucks business plan to absolutely test the saturation limits of it's markets. They have so much money, they will put up a Starbucks across the street from another Starbucks just to see if the market is saturated.

I believe there is a place downtown from where you can see three Starbucks.

I don't have a problem with anybody convincing people to give them as much money as they can legally, however, there is something anti-establishmentary in me that compells me to resist patronizing a business that is so ubiquitous and hip.

Ed: I am now on the warpath. I have sent an email beseaching all of my address book friends to stop shopping at Starbucks. I am not officially asking for the boycott, yet, but not shopping there will hopefully pass along the message. Since the email went out I have received 30 responses agreeing to pass along the email to their list and to stop patronizing the chain. I think eventually, they will realize their error and rescend the program.
