Some People Think Starbucks Is Promoting 'Gay Agenda' On Holiday Cups
It seems like outrage over Starbucks cups is almost as much of a holiday tradition as crowded malls, Mariah Carey and sappy movie marathons.
The coffee giant released a commercial earlier this month that showed different people enjoying the holidays, including two women who were obviously in love.
The ad was released in conjunction with a new cup that’s also creating a buzz. Among other holiday motifs, it features two hands that could conceivably belong to a same-sex couple.

Starbucks came under fire last holiday season when it made cups that were green instead of red, so the scene was set for some good old-fashioned Twitter outrage:
Ban Starbucks for not supporting everyone and pushing one idealism upon us all! Just another Progressive Liberal company owner pushing their divisive agenda upon everyone who is not a liberal or may disagree with gay lifestyle. Let Liberals buy the cool aid from Starbucks! Ban!

The new Starbucks cup has lesbian couple on it. Rom 1:26 “because of this,God gave them over to shameful lust”…

Some tweets were more tongue-in-cheek:
I can’t tell the genders of the people holding hands, on this cup, could be an abomination, better not risk it. ]]>?
