Pastor predicts all Christians will boycott Starbucks; underestimates Caramel Macchiato's allure

by Jeremy Hooper

The National Organization for Marriage is on the verge of boycott. Now they get some company in the form of Pastor Steven Andrew:

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 31, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- What if Starbucks lost 80% of its customers? Christians across the USA are boycotting Starbucks for promoting homosexual 'marriage' in Washington State. There is an 80% Christian majority in the USA and 1-2% homosexuals.

Screen Shot 2012-01-31 At 11.37.22 Am"Christians are upset with Starbucks for turning against God, but we are glad to know that Starbucks doesn't pretend to be for Christians," said Pastor Steven Andrew, who is president of USA Christian Ministries. He calls every Christian and church to boycott Starbucks. Leviticus 22:18 says, "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination."

"This boycott is important because God blesses those who obey Him and judges those who don't obey Him (2 Chronicles 19:2)," he adds.

Don't expect to hear sermons with "grab your Starbucks" or to see Starbucks served at churches. "Starbucks is no longer fashionable. If your church still uses Starbucks, then your pastor is a friend of the world," he adds. God calls those who oppose Him "haters of God" (Romans 1:30).
...
"Starbucks can follow Satan if they want to. However, pastors are to help Christians. Are you on the Lord's side? Will you help the USA be blessed by God?" he asks.

On the bright side, the lines will be much shorter, and I therefore will not be forced to stare at/contemplate the pastries behind the case. Now that's true devilish torture, that calorically tempting waiting game!
