Coffee Break

The irony-challenged National Organization for Marriage (they’re all for marriage as long as you and your best beloved have just one penis and one vagina between the two of you, so to speak) is calling for a boycott against Starbucks because they refuse to be bigoted.

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM), America’s largest group dedicated to preserving traditional marriage and the faith communities that sustain it, today announced it will lead an international “Dump Starbucks” protest of Starbucks Coffee Company to give voice to consumers around the world who support preserving marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Customers are invited to visit immediately to take action.

I have always thought of Starbucks as expensive and oh-so-trendy (listening to people order their special blend non-fat latte with a shot and a soy whosywhatsis is huh?-inspiring), and the prices are through the roof, but I will gladly go give my local baristas my business if it will put a kink in these sniveling bigots’ collective colon.

In fact, I still have a balance on the gift card I got for Christmas. Black, no sugar.
