    When I heard about a red cup incident at Starbucks, first thought was if it
    was because they were promoting Christmas with having a read cup. How
    absolutely naive of me to think that was the world we live in. Isn’t it
    Christmas-y enough that the company makes a color-transit to the (now)
    universal color of Christmas during the season? American christians tend to
    be so ridiculously hung up on having their religion rule the country that
    they can’t focus on issues that actually matter.

    Guess what….you throw away your cup without a second thought so who gives
    a crap really

    While I don’t give a fig about any of this, except that is all I am
    freaking hearing about, are the people laughing at this high or drunk cause
    I’m still waiting for the comedy.

    One guy and a few idjits complain about something and that is “viral” news?
    Slow news cycle, or the government must be getting ready to do something
    really dumb.

    The best part is, since Christmas started as a pagan holiday, one could
    argue that switching to plain red cups actually makes them MORE Christian,
    not less.
    I’m a Christian myself, and I don’t care either way. In fact, I didn’t even
    notice the switch until I watched this video. But it’s nice to imagine how
    the whining 1% would react if I told them that.

    i’m an atheist, i’ve never been a christian and never had any family member
    who weren’t atheists, and yet we love christmas and it bothers me when
    people assume only chistians care about this holiday. and starbucks, we’ll
    i never felt anything but the need to vomit, after their coffees

    Clever marketing tbh, it wouldn’t surprise me if starbucks had planted
    those ‘angered’ christians. It makes it appear like starbucks is a victim
    to this exaggerated ‘outrage’. It Cleverly makes every sane person agree
    with them ‘its just a cup’, and emotionally ties you to emphasise with the

    I don’t buy it starbucks, go back to your tax dodging ways ;)

    Starbucks is obviously just trying to save a few cents on the cup by
    simplifying the pattern.

  18. Robert Jenkins says:

    I’m not religious, but it is kind of lame how they just made it solid red.
    I mean, if you’re going to make changes to the cup design, you might as
    well go all out and put some pictures or patterns on it – some secular
    Christmas symbol like a snowman or reindeer or Santa couldn’t offend
    anyone, right?

    I wish the only problem had in life is wondering why my Starbucks coffee
    doesn’t say merry Christmas, sadly I’m not that lucky.

    Red, isn’t that the color of the Republican Party? How much more Christian
