Here is a letter I recently sent to Starbucks:
I am finally getting around to writing, letting you know my wife and I have stopped spending money at your stores. We used to spend about $100 per month, but feel that we cannot knowingly support a company which aggressively endorses and promotes sinful behavior.
I, myself, have sinned a lot in my day – but I do not expect anyone to endorse my lifestyle choice or push to have my behavior legally ratified. Same-sex marriage is just one amongst many things condemned by the bible, so I do not think it deserves a pass any more than the other behaviors listed in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10: “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
I have been a thief, a drunkard, a reviler, greedy, sexually immoral, an adulterer, and an idolater – but I have turned away from those sins, not campaigned to try and make everyone accept those things as normal and good.
Starbucks is taking a socially and morally irresponsible stand, and I will not spend my money to support your company while you continue to do so.
Thank you for your time.
