Starbucks Promotes Homosexual Agenda
They started and stopped about 10 years ago, but they are at it again.

BP) After nearly a decade of lying low, Starbucks has reentered the homosexual rights movement in a few ways that have put at least one conservative group on alert.The world's most famous coffee shop chain has begun a program called "The Way I See It," which is a collection of thoughts, opinions and expressions provided by notable figures that now appear on Starbucks coffee cups, according to the chain's website.

But one particular quote -- #43 -- blatantly pushes the homosexual agenda. It's by Armistead Maupin, who wrote "Tales of the City," a bestseller-turned-PBS drama advocating the homosexual lifestyle, and it reads:"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 [expletive] short.

"Concerned Women for America, one of the nation's leading conservative public policy organizations, is sounding the alarm about the cups after one of its employees received one when she purchased coffee from one of the stores.

Meghan Kleppinger, assistant to the national field director at CWA, wrote a column about Starbucks' involvement in the homosexual movement which was posted by WorldNetDaily Aug. 10.

Kleppinger, who had been a frequent patron of Starbucks until recently vowing to stop, was put on notice about Starbucks earlier this summer when she received an e-mail from the California arm of CWA describing an annual "gay pride" parade in San Diego. The parade sounded like a typical event, she thought, until she read on.

"I read where there would be children's gardens and basically in the midst of all of this sexual activity there would be events for children," she said Aug. 8. "And then I read that two registered pedophiles were volunteers at this event. When I scrolled to the bottom I saw who the sponsors were, and the one that jumped out was Starbucks because that is a favorite company of mine. So it just frustrated me that a company was giving money to something like this where children would be exposed to this sort of thing."

The rest (in case you missed my earlier posting)
