    No doubt that this will devastate Starbucks.

    I hope this frees up some tables at my Starbucks. I can never find a seat!

    Another right wing anti-gay boycott that goes nowhere?
    Eventually the media will stop covering these publicity stunts.

    What I don't understand is why NOM posted this on YouTube. Did they really think the CEO didn't answer their questions sufficiently? I mean, the barbs of the second guy, "Is this really in the interest of shareholders, when you take something that is important only to a small minority.... etc etc?" Didn't the CEO quite adroitly say, "We multiplied shareholder value, go nag somewhere else?"

    OK, maybe that was not a literal transcript. But it came across that way... to me.

    I don't think NOM has yet realized the appearance of being anti-gay by giving into one their boycotts would hurt a company's image more than a boycott by NOM.

    Like trillions of Amerians are going to give up their Starbucks.

    At this point, NOM is throwing anything and everything at the wall, desperately hoping something sticks.

    I'll never understand why straight people care so much about gay marriage. Gay people are going to exist and gay people are going to have gay sex whether they can get married or not. Why does the thought of them getting to marry cause some people to get so upset? I just don't get it.

    NOM is funded by the roman catholic church. They ought to just start their own coffee company. Maybe they could call it Blood of Christ Coffee.

    "Any decision of this type or magnitude..."

    No! No! It is only a magnitudinal decision to the Haters. Allowing same-sex marriage is NOT a momentous decision. It's an easy decision that doesnt bother anybody. It shouldnt even be a decision. It should be ipso facto...the state permits marriage, marriage is permitted to all.

    That, and they didn't get their usual frappuccino that day so they decided to bitch Starbucks about it.

    I go there every day and the gay guy working behind the counter gives me free coffee. Now I have more reasons to like Starbucks.

    I love that the second guy tries to say that the growing market in Asia might suddenly stop because Starbucks supports gay marriage in the US.

    Gay marriage in Japan is "Unthinkable" he said, yeah it is right now, but not because so many Japanese are against it. Most Japanese people don't really care, homosexuality was made illegal for a few years in the 1800's (because of America!) and after that was overturned most people got on with their lives without paying it any attention.

    Japan isn't perfect when it comes to gay rights, because not enough people care about it as an issue (especially about gay rights in other countries), Starbucks coffee however, now that is something a lot of Japanese do give a toss about and won't be giving up anytime soon.

    Starbucks is safe here, thank God.

    NOM's next headline:

    You Think That's Cream in Your Coffee? Think Again, Christians! That's CUM!

    Valid questions, personal opinions aside. What will Starbucks do if profits drop? But more importantly, why should it matter if a coffee company does or does not endorse gay marriage? I wonder where Chipotle or Office Depot stand on the issue.

    workoutco, WHEN profits drop, as they often do, they change their marketing, purchasing, expenditure, and pricing strategies to try and turn it around. What they do not do is worry about whether it has anything remotely to do with not bowing to pressures from hate groups. Which sort of answers your second question. Brushing those fools off also serves as an example to all companies of all sizes, from Chipotle to Ma and Pa's Coffee Stand. The phobia industry keeps plugging away hoping they can find a company they can make quiver so they can grasp whatever is left of their relevance.

    The lunatics from NOM are at it again with another idiotic boycott. Hopefully their boycott against Starbucks will fail disastrously. No Starbucks is not bad for you, it is good for you. Probably it is time for a massive boycott against the Roman Catholic Church and its senile, Nazi Pope.
