David Barton would be out of a job for being a fraud if not for Christians who eagerly pay him to lie to them. Recently he told a whole congregation that you can’t drink Starbucks coffee without opposing Jesus. You see, Starbucks supports love in the form of marriage equality, and Jesus hates that.
“Biblically, there is no way a Christian can help support what is attacking God,” Barton said, adding “I’m sorry, you’ve got to find some other coffee to drink. You can’t drink Starbucks and be biblically right on this thing. It’s just a real simple principle”
And the crowd of believers goes wild.
So Jesus doesn’t mind that Barton lies incessantly and he doesn’t care that everybody in the seats supports the liar and is too lazy a thinker to catch the liar (and how many wouldn’t want to catch him even if they could?), but if you drink Starbucks coffee, Jesus is furious.
I’d say Barton and Jesus deserve each other. And if drinking Starbucks cheeses them both off, I’d be real tempted to start drinking coffee.
