Christians believe Jesus Christ is the reason for the Christmas holiday season. Still, secular coffee maker Starbucks has come under fire from some Christian who say the company isn’t representing enough for Jesus on its recent understated holiday cups. Even worse, several Starbucks lovers have found a hidden symbol on the bottom of their cups – a pentagram with the numbers 333 next to it. What does this mean? First they remove the Christmas symbols from their coffee cups, then add the symbol of Satan – this has made Christians furious.
“I think in the age of political correctness we become so open-minded our brains have literally fallen out of our head,” Joshua Feuerstein said in a widely viewed anti-Starbucks rant on Facebook titled “Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus and love Satan.” Feuerstein Continues to say, “Do you realize that Starbucks wanted to take Christ and Christmas off their brand-new cups? That’s why they’re just plain red, with a newly printed pentagram at the bottom”
Feuerstein, an Arizona-based evangelist and “social media personality,” according to his website, had a plan. He didn’t want a boycott. He wanted a movement. “I went in,” he said. “I asked for my coffee. They asked for my name. And I told them my name is ‘Merry Christmas.'” The result? “Guess what, Starbucks?” Feuerstein Said. “I tricked you into putting ‘Merry Christmas’ on your cup.” Moreover, he challenged ‘Great Americans and Christians’ to do the same by taking “coffee selfies” with Christmas messages on Starbucks cups and scratching out the pentagram on the bottom.
“Satan hates Jesus but obviously loves Starbucks coffee. They want to keep us out of Starbucks just like they want to keep the guns out of Starbucks. This is a message that says Christians are not welcome in their coffee shops. But I say let’s go in hordes, let’s make them uncomfortable, bring Sharpie markers to Starbucks. Let’s write Merry Christmas on every cup and scratch out the pentagrams.Let’s sing Christmas carols while we drink coffee inside their shops. Let’s start a movement Americans! We must stop the Satanic Starbucks,” he added.
