I don’t drink coffee and I can’t imagine why I would ever care where someone else gets theirs, but David Barton told the congregation at an Alabama church recently that “You can’t drink Starbucks and be Biblically right” because they support marriage equality.
Okay David, but why stop at Starbucks? You sell your books on Amazon, don’t you? They support same-sex marriage too. Their founder gave $2.5 million to advance marriage equality in the state of Washington. And you can’t use any Apple or PC, since both companies support it too. For that matter, you can’t use the internet at all because most of the routers used were made by Cisco, which also supports gay marriage.
In fact, as I documented quite some time ago, there are more than 300 corporations that get a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign in their support for equality for their LGBT employees. Which means you basically can’t buy anything. You’re going to have to become Amish. Good luck with that.
