Brian Brown Claims That NOM's Pathetic Boycott Has Impacted Starbucks' Business: LISTEN

Two years ago, the National Organization for Marriage began a protest of Starbucks after the massive coffee vendor supported a pro-marriage equality referendum on the Washington ballot.

BrianBrownNow, NOM president Brian Brown claims that that boycott has made an impact on the international community's tolerance for the chain. As Good as You pointed out, however, Starbucks currently operates 21,000 stores in 65 countries with little standing in its way for further expansion; not too shabby. 

The transcript from Brown's silly attempt at relevance reads:

"You know, the media will try and say that the boycotts have minimal to no effect, but the reality is that companies like Starbucks are trying to expand around the world, and as Americans stand up and say this is wrong and they highlight that companies like Starbucks are supporting same-sex marriage, the mask comes up...Because of the Starbucks boycott for example, many countries have looked at Starbucks and the individuals that would be allowing Starbucks into the country have said, 'No, no, no,' because Starbucks does support the redefinition of marriage."

Brown then went on to get to his real point, perhaps realizing that the previous one was inane:

"Most importantly though, how can we view it as moral to be giving our dollars to a company that directly is attacking our faith? I understand again that you cannot do this to every company, but the ones that are actually attacking the faith, you have to take a stand at some point, and Target is doing that, Starbucks is doing that, and Chase is doing that."

Ah, yes. The faith, as if there were only one, and supporting same-sex marriage is in direct opposition to it--an age old struggle for Brown and NOM. Sorry, folks, but Starbucks is not feeling any worse for wear.

Listen in, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Religionists think they own this world, but it's all in their heads, as usual.

  2. Brian Brown's incessant homophobic rhetoric, some of it still aimed at Starbucks, is as old and stale as the coffee company's day-old used coffee grounds. It falls on millions of deaf ears who know he and his fellow NOMbies are no more than big losers who, in the near future, will be dealt the ultimate loser's blow by the SCOTUS on marriage equality.

  8. I wonder which Starbucks? Certainly not any around by me. They're packed every morning, afternoon and evening. Must be somewhere else. The question is: where?

    Brian, honey, you're a fat f*ck. Sit down and shut up.
