"There's more than coffee brewing at Starbucks. There's controversy too... Starbucks is stirring the pot all right, but with a liberal agenda that's got customers shaking their heads. In the fight over marriage in Washington State, the Seattle company is picking sides. Last week, the chain announced it'll join the attack on marriage and endorse homosexual unions... If Starbucks thinks people like their radical agenda, I hate to spill the beans. But people can get their caffeine fix anywhere. So if Starbucks wants to focus on politics, then its profits are on dangerous grounds."

-- Family Research Council whackjob Tony Perkins urging rightwing Christians to boycott Starbucks over their support for marriage equality in Washington State. No mention of Google, Microsoft, Amazon or the other myriad companies that have also endorsed the bill.
