Starbucks Is Major Funding Source For Radical Gay Causes - Churchgoers Must Decide: A Convenient Cup Of Coffee Or A Stand For Jesus Christ

Emblem From SD Gay Pride Website
2006 San Diego Gay Pride
Proudly Sponsored By Starbucks

Millions Of Christians Buy
Starbucks Coffee Everyday.
The Result: Those purchases are funding the
Anti-Christian Radicalized Homosexual Movement.

JHReport Action Alert - Without question, one of the largest American corporate promoters of the anti-family, radicalized homosexual agenda, continues to be coffee giant Starbucks. While children were forced to watch degrading images of male prostitutes, pornographers and other deviant participants in this year's 2006 San Diego Gay Pride Parade, Starbucks was sponsoring this hellish event to make sure that it was well-funded (

In 2006, Starbucks' obsession with promoting the political activism of radical gay crusaders was not limited to the pornographic San Diego Gay Pride event. Indeed, this year, Starbucks extended its financial support to one of the most vehemently anti-christian homosexual media groups in America: GLAAD (The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).

The goals of GLAAD are to promote homosexual, lesbian and transsexual character acceptance as positive role models in the media. GLAAD was a major player in promoting the acceptance of Brokeback Mountain, homosexual television program Will & Grace, the lesbian coming out of Ellen on the Ellen DeGeneres program, a lesbian kiss during family viewing hours on the Roseanne television show, and in 2004, launched the "I Do" contest to create a commercial promoting acceptance of gay marriage ( GLAAD has had an extensive history of aggressively attacking pro-family groups and individuals who believe that homosexuality is wrong, groups and individuals like Dr. Laura, Senator Trent Lott, and the Southern Baptist Convention. Starbucks' involvement with GLAAD is a clear statement that they are in agreement with the anti-christian, pro-homosexual agenda of the radical, socialist movement in America (

Starbucks is so enthralled with the despicable homosexual crusade of GLAAD that it has agreed to financially underwrite the 18th annual GLAAD Media Awards in 2007 (

Starbucks is not happy with just promoting homosexuality and lesbianism among adults. In 2005, the company engaged in a controversial campaign to indoctrinate youngsters who come in for coffee to accept the homosexual lifestyle ( A quotation by Armistead Maupin, the author of homosexual books, was placed on the coffee cups being given to young customers that stated:

"My only regret about being gay is that I repressed it for so long. I surrendered my youth to the people I feared when I could have been out there loving someone. Don't make that mistake yourself. Life's too short."
Armistead Maupin - Author of homosexual books.

- The Anti-Christian Starbucks Crusade -

While Starbucks continued to be the beneficiary of hundreds of millions of dollars in sales from Christians in 2004 and 2005, there is no apparent evidence that it spent any of its $1.94 million in Starbucks Foundation corporate donations on traditional Biblical values, Bible promotion or Bible reading among children. According to its 2003-2004 IRS tax filings posted on, the Starbucks Foundation donated $1.94 million to a wide variety of secular and oftentimes, socialistic children's programs, secular reading programs, abortion rights and homosexual causes.

The Starbucks Foundation 2004 IRS 990-Filing form for year 2003 reveals some very disturbing contributions:

For that filing year, the Starbucks Foundation gave $7,500 for the promotion of homosexual values to young children attending a junior high school. The organization's IRS statement identified the $7,500 recepient as the Robert C. Murphy Junior High School Gay-Straight Alliance Club at 351 Oxhead Rd. Stony Brook, NY. The Gay-Straight Alliances are devoted to promoting acceptance of homosexuality, lesbianism and transsexualism among young children and teenagers in public schools, oftentimes without parental knowledge.

The Starbucks Foundation also gave $1,500 to the radical pro-abortion feminist organization The Global Fund for Women, located at 1375 Sutter St. in San Francisco. While Starbucks Corp. was supporting a multitude of homosexual groups who are on the move to dismantle Christian influence in America, its foundation donated $5,000 in 2004 to the Earth & Spirit Council, a Portland, Oregon-based group devoted to the promotion of the spiritual traditions of indigenous Indian tribes. It also gave $15,000 to the National Conference for Community & Justice (NCCJ), a radical group that holds homosexual camps for young children and teenagers each year called Camp Anytown and Camp Minitown. Youth that attend these camps end up so indoctrinated into the homosexual lifestyle, that they often return to school to start gay-straight alliance clubs to spread the radicalized gay agenda throughout their schools.

The Starbucks Foundation filed its 990 IRS Statement for the following 2004-2005 year revealing even more chilling anti-family contributions:

These contributions include $10,000 to the Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth, Inc.

Churchgoers Must Now Decide:
A Convenient Cup of Coffee
A Stand For Jesus Christ

The time has now come for Christians everywhere who seek to save America from being redesigned by the morally bankrupt and socialistic minds of pro-gay corporations like Ford ( and Starbucks, to take decisive action. Christians must finally come to terms with the severity of the moral decline in America. Either, we believe the Bible and its historical importance to America, or we allow the anti-christian secularists to redefine morality in America by supporting Starbucks and its
radicalized corporate philosophies.

Take the "I Am A Righteous Coffee Drinker" pledge!

Nicely done, James! I have seldom purchased Starbucks coffee since the quote cups and haven't missed them a bit. Caribou, Dunkin Donuts, Panera Bread, and even McDonald's all have a great cup of coffee...or that $5 could be contributed at church, to a ministry, or used for a good deed.

I am sickened to report that main participants of "the youth group" at our church continues to go to Starbucks even after "the quote cups", hearing how Starbucks refused to send coffee to our troops and all. Maybe your article will wake them up. There are many fine independent coffee shops around the nation struggling to compete. Go there if you can't live without your over-priced coffee drinks!

Gay and Lesbian alliance clubs do not turn people gay, they educate people to be tolerant. Tolerance does not make someone a non-Christian, it makes them like Jesus. Didn't seem that Jesus had any problem talking to Mary, a well know prostitute, at the well. He judged no one, yet sought to love everyone. We need to love, not throw hateful words at one another.

The funny thing is that you will never in a million years post my comment that stated Gay and lesbian clubs teach tolerance, something Jesus taught, because you are a close-minded hypocritical Christian who talks the talk but doesn't study what the Bible actually says. Anyway, I'm going to Starbucks to have a cup of high quality Arabica coffee and read my sermon notes on the five points of Calvinism.

I will definitely never support Starbucks again. I will give my $3.75 to a missionary.

Starbucks is doing nothing wrong here. If you believe in this sick twisted article that gays and mega corporations are trying to undermine our society, you are sadly mistaken. Gays, lesbians, transexuals, prostitutes... they are all just people. Do you really think the threat of rotting in hell is going to keep these people from who they love? Just because your precious bible tells you that it is wrong does not mean that it truly is. You call it blasphemy i call it the truth. -Tom

I did not know or care about Starbucks until I tried their coffe. I;m not one that can be hooked on coffee, but Starbucks has the best by far. So anyways, to me this really sucks! Gays are just plain sick, and you have to be just as sick to suport them! Goodbye Starbucks, until you find your sense of morality, which you seem to have misplaced or thrown out the window!

i read a comment from someone that was Anonymous that said we should be tolerant.The problem with this statement is that homosexuality is leading people to hell. It would be like saying i dont go the store on the corner because they support adultery . and I am called a intolerant person in the community
Homosexulity ruins life and lead people to hell . Should would support and organization that funds that . God forbid. 1 COR 6-9Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,* nor sodomites,

the sin of sodom and gomorrha in the bible, was the sin of homosexuality.

Youre all stupid. Gay people are not morally bankrupt. And its been my experience that the"christians" screaming the loudest that we are going to hell are the ones secretly in a homosexual relationship themselves. An empty vessel makes the most noise. Equal rights are not anti family or anti christian, its about not hating people you don't even know. If you dont like gay marriage then don't get one. Love is never wrong, the world needs more of it clearly.

Hey James I live in California and used to go to shadow mountain church in el canon. The church switch there coffee from selling rock solid to Starbucks . I email the church several times no one got back to me. I realized shadow mountain money church. Can you help me get word out.

Honestly guys. More than getting the word out there and speaking against these groups, we should go out and make more diciples. Love on and show them God. Do not be known merely by what you're against, but who you represent. God is love. Yes God will not allow homosexuals into heaven, but he also will not let the lukewarm, the idolaters, the religious, etc. God wants us to pursue the lost in love, the way he pursue each one of us. Let the Holy Spirit do the work in them, that is not our job. Our job is to introduce them to our Jesus and to help them grow in relationship with Him; not by force or by talking against them, but by loving them, serving them, and praying for them. The more diciples you make, the less people there are out there not serving God. So the answer is dicipleship in love. As for the guy studying his 5 points of Calvinism, don't waste your time. It was written as a reaction to the 5 points of Arminianism and both are semi-true. Spend more time studying scripture and less time studying a set of beliefs about scripture. Practicing what scripture says is more important then some theological belief system anyways. Let's go out and show the world who Jesus is, not try to dumbfound them with how much theology we know. We are all sinners and need Jesus. May God bless and do a work in all of us, believers and unbelievers alike.

Jesus did not condemn Mary. He did not however applaud what she was or what she did. BIG BIG DIFFERENCE!
