Starbucks Red Cups & the War on Christmas

Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 1.24.16 PMI am a Christian.  My patron saint of Christmas is Scrooge.  When someone tells me Merry Christmas, they are likely to get a bah-humbug in exchange.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love Christmas. I love Christmas lights and giving gifts.  I love shopping for gifts, and wrapping them, perfectly.  I love decorating trees.  I absolutely loath Christmas music.  I don’t like Christmas music when I shop.  I don’t want to hear it at Labor Day.  I don’t mind it on the Fourth of July and Christmas Eve.  I don’t like trite Christmas shit music by rock stars, country music jerks, or people who are not Christians but are profiting off the season.  I love Bing Crosby Christmas music.  I love Perry Como and Frank Sinatra.  I could listen to their Christmas music anytime, period.  If it is opera I’ll listen.  Other than the original  What Do You Get a Wookie for Christmas, forget it.

The so-called ‘War on Christmas is a total and complete joke perpetrated by the jerks at FOX News, Todd Starnes being the worst offender.  This said, I was listening to the usual idiots complaining about the new Starbucks cups.  I like them.  The decorator in me likes them.  They are fantastic.

When people who claim to be Christians make a big deal about a paper cup, yet walk past someone hungry, I doubt their claim to Christianity.
