Re: Starbucks' Cup Controversy

This is so inconsequential that it's not worthy of debate or discussion.

LOL!  Customers ticked off because there aren't any little snowmen & snowflakes to color in?

The business world does not owe special treatment to those of us who are Christian.

I usually take my own mug to use & don't go there all that much.  But, from vague recollections of what they've done in past years, they never had a Christian theme design, did they?  Nothing like crosses, images of Jesus or Mary, anything like that?  If that's the case, then their past designs have just been "winter holiday" themes & the plain red cup fits with that school of thought.  JMHO

Re: Starbucks' Cup Controversy

wow it must be nice to have nothing else going on in your life than to a.) pay that much attention to a stupid coffee cup and then b.) complain about it. I don't know, I have enough other things to stress over that are much more significant and possibly life threatening than to have time to worry about a coffee cup. I don't think God cares what the cup looks like that we drink our coffee out of, pretty sure he has bigger fish to fry.

I honestly don't remember, VCamp.  I think they were just snow themes and the like, nothing religious.

 

... just looked, apparently Starbucks 2014 had a snowflake theme.  Sorry folks, but there were no snowflakes at the actual birth.

Doing an image check, I also see a reindeer cup, a bird on a cup and what looks like a freeform gold swirl.  Nothing religious.
