Why Should I Keep Buying Starbucks?

     With the ripple effects of the recent starbucks claim pushing Christians away from buying their coffee, I would like to give a different perspective for those who will read, have an open mind and heart. I want to take you back 50 years when the Bible and Prayer were both under attack in the public schools. Christians scathed and cried out against the public school system with all bark but no bite. We really did nothing to help the situation. We merely cried out and then after school hours went back to the four walls of our church to enjoy our private club of worship or whatever it was we did. We lost the battle for the hearts of our children because were not truly engaged in saving them to begin with.
     Just the same today, we have an entire culture that has suffered the affects of our negligence. Starbucks is a microcosm of the big problem in our culture. The question is, are we willing to be engaged in the fight to save the next generation. My generation. I will fight for my generation with or without the help of others, but it cannot be just me. There must be more than ten righteous who are willing to stand up for truth in a day when most will not. So why will I keep going to starbucks? I will keep going to starbucks not to support their homosexual agenda, but because there are many homosexuals who work at starbucks and how will they ever be reached if first I quit going to the neutral place where they are, and secondly if I do not show them the love of Christ? If I boycott this establishment, then who will share the Love of Christ with these people? If I boycott this establishment, then will I be any different then the homosexuals who boycott chickfila or other Christian organizations? We cry out that they should not treat chickfila that way, but we do the very same thing. Now I may not go to starbucks because of their exorbitant prices, however, I will not quit because of whom they support or not. Where else in culture can you go that is neutral place where you can share God's love with people? Why destroy that? There you have it! My thoughts for today.

    Nathan I agree with you 100 percent. How can we be salt and light if never enter darkness! Plus it reminds to be a witness everywhere I go and show the love of Christ in the way I treat those serving me. Thanks! Glad I found your blog!
