Millions Of Christians Buy Starbucks Coffee Everyday.

The Result: Those purchases are funding the Anti-Christian Radicalized Homosexual Movement.

JHReport Action Alert – Without question, one of the largest American corporate promoters of the anti-family, radicalized homosexual agenda, continues to be coffee giant Starbucks. While children were forced to watch degrading images of male prostitutes, pornographers and other deviant participants in this year’s 2006 San Diego Gay Pride Parade, Starbucks was sponsoring this hellish event to make sure that it was well-funded (http://sandiegopride.org/12/Sponsors.htm).

In 2006, Starbucks’ obsession with promoting the political activism of radical gay crusaders was not limited to the pornographic San Diego Gay Pride event. Indeed, this year, Starbucks extended its financial support to one of the most vehemently anti-christian homosexual media groups in America: GLAAD (The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).

The goals of GLAAD are to promote homosexual, lesbian and transsexual character acceptance as positive role models in the media. GLAAD was a major player in promoting the acceptance of Brokeback Mountain, homosexual television program Will & Grace, the lesbian coming out of Ellen on the Ellen DeGeneres program, a lesbian kiss during family viewing hours on the Roseanne television show, and in 2004, launched the “I Do” contest to create a commercial promoting acceptance of gay marriage (www.glaad.org/about/accomp.php). GLAAD has had an extensive history of aggressively attacking pro-family groups and individuals who believe that homosexuality is wrong, groups and individuals like Dr. Laura, Senator Trent Lott, and the Southern Baptist Convention. Starbucks’ involvement with GLAAD is a clear statement that they are in agreement with the anti-Christian, pro-homosexual agenda of the radical, socialist movement in America (www.glaad.org/events/mediaawards/17th_annual/sponsors.php).

Starbucks is so enthralled with the despicable homosexual crusade of GLAAD that it has agreed to financially underwrite the 18th annual GLAAD Media Awards in 2007 (http://www.glaad.org/events/mediaawards/18th_annual/MAsponsors.php).

Starbucks is not happy with just promoting homosexuality and lesbianism among adults. In 2005, the company engaged in a controversial campaign to indoctrinate youngsters who come in for coffee to accept the homosexual lifestyle (www.bpnews.net/bpnews.asp?ID=21387). A quotation by Armistead Maupin, the author of homosexual books, was placed on the coffee cups being given to young customers that stated:

“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 short.” — Armistead Maupin – Author of homosexual books.

The Anti-Christian Starbucks Crusade

While Starbucks continued to be the beneficiary of hundreds of millions of dollars in sales from Christians in 2004 and 2005, there is no apparent evidence that it spent any of its $1.94 million in Starbucks Foundation corporate donations on traditional Biblical values, Bible promotion or Bible reading among children. According to its 2003-2004 IRS tax filings posted on http://www.guidestar.com/, the Starbucks Foundation donated $1.94 million to a wide variety of secular and oftentimes, socialistic children’s programs, secular reading programs, abortion rights and homosexual causes.

The Starbucks Foundation 2004 IRS 990-Filing form for year 2003 reveals some very disturbing contributions:

For that filing year, the Starbucks Foundation gave $7,500 for the promotion of homosexual values to young children attending a junior high school. The organization’s IRS statement identified the $7,500 recepient as the Robert C. Murphy Junior High School Gay-Straight Alliance Club at 351 Oxhead Rd. Stony Brook, NY. The Gay-Straight Alliances are devoted to promoting acceptance of homosexuality, lesbianism and transsexualism among young children and teenagers in public schools, oftentimes without parental knowledge.

The Starbucks Foundation also gave $1,500 to the radical pro-abortion feminist organization The Global Fund for Women, located at 1375 Sutter St. in San Francisco. While Starbucks Corp. was supporting a multitude of homosexual groups who are on the move to dismantle Christian influence in America, its foundation donated $5,000 in 2004 to the Earth & Spirit Council, a Portland, Oregon-based group devoted to the promotion of the spiritual traditions of indigenous Indian tribes. It also gave $15,000 to the National Conference for Community & Justice (NCCJ), a radical group that holds homosexual camps for young children and teenagers each year called Camp Anytown and Camp Minitown. Youth that attend these camps end up so indoctrinated into the homosexual lifestyle, that they often return to school to start gay-straight alliance clubs to spread the radicalized gay agenda throughout their schools.

The Starbucks Foundation filed its 990 IRS Statement for the following 2004-2005 year revealing even more chilling anti-family contributions: http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2005/911/795/2005-911795425-0237c699-F.pdf

These contributions include $10,000 to the Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth, Inc.

Churchgoers Must Now Decide:
A Convenient Cup of Coffee
Or
A Stand For Jesus Christ

The time has now come for Christians everywhere who seek to save America from being redesigned by the morally bankrupt and socialistic minds of pro-gay corporations like Ford (www.afa.net/Petitions/IssueDetail.asp?id=194) and Starbucks, to take decisive action. Christians must finally come to terms with the severity of the moral decline in America. Either, we believe the Bible and its historical importance to America, or we allow the anti-Christian secularists to redefine morality in America by supporting Starbucks and its radicalized corporate philosophies.

Take the “I Am A Righteous Coffee Drinker” pledge!

Until Starbucks Stops Its Radical Gay Activist Crusade
Please Do Not Buy Starbucks Products.
