Starbucks CEO: If You Support Traditional Marriage…..We Don’t Want Your Business!

CEO Howard Schultz Sends Clear Message at Starbucks Annual Meeting

article sent by Mark Waldeland:

At the Starbucks annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday, CEO Howard Schultz sent a clear message to anyone who supports traditional marriage over gay marriage: we don’t want your business. After saying Starbucks wants to “embrace diversity of all kinds,” he told a shareholder who supports traditional marriage that he should sell his shares and invest in some other company.

According to a report by Forbes, Schultz seemed a bit intolerant of any Starbucks shareholders who opposed gay marriage for moral or religious reasons. During the meeting, shareholder Tom Strobhar (who founded the Corporate Morality Action Center) pointed out that after the company voiced its support for a referendum backing gay marriage in Washington state, a boycott by traditional marriage supporters caused a drop in sales revenue. Schultz told him “You can sell your shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company” if he did not agree with the company’s pro-gay marriage stand.

Despite strong opposition from the religious and political right, support for gay marriage in America has risen in recent years. The rise of support for gay marriage has also seen a rise of intolerance for those who oppose it. Many who joined the boycott of Starbucks last year were dismissed as bigots, even though the boycott did cause revenue to drop. A website,DumpStarbucks.com, has earned tens of thousands of supporters who refuse to buy from the coffee chain in response.

The following article was from the Examiner March 28, 2012:

The next time you order a carmel frappachino at Starbucks, your hard-earned dollars are paying for more than your barista’s salary. It is financing a campaign by the company to support the legalization of gay marriage.

At the March 21, 2012 Starbucks shareholders meeting in Seattle, CEO Howard Schultz was confronted by shareholders who feel the company had no place endorsing a controversial gay marriage bill that eventually passed in Washington state. Tom Strobhar, a shareholder and founder of The Corporate Morality Action Center, asked Schultz to stop supporting liberal causes that may cause a backlash among Starbucks’ conservative customers.

While Schultz was diplomatic and understanding of Strobhar’s position, he stated the decision to publicly support the legalization of gay marriage “is right for our company” and “since we made that decision there has not been any dilution whatsoever in our business.”

Schultz is correct that the company decision to support legalizing gay marriage was met with little resistance, but that situation may be changing. A new website from the National Organization for Marriage, DumpStarbucks.com, has already gathered over 23,000 signatures from customers who say the company’s stance violates their values. A Facebook group for the campaign gained over 10,000 “likes” in just its first seven days.

Despite Schultz’s assertion that “performance in many ways should be one of the matrixes to decide whether or not the decision has been dilutive, and it hasn’t been,” it is far too early to tell if the decision will have a negative effect. Now that word of Starbuck’s position is spreading, the opposition is slowly organizing.

Starbucks entered the gay marriage debate on January 24th, 2012, when the company issued a memo stating that supporting the legalization of gay marriage “is core to who we are and what we value as a company.” Pastor Steven Andrew claims 80% of Starbucks customers are Christian, and a boycott could seriously damage the company. Whether or not supporters of traditional marriage are willing to change their coffee drinking habits remains to be seen.

  1. I’m not running for office. I am not the President of the United States who MUST proclaim something at an inaugural address that will guarantee support in segment of society that has long been ignored. I am not looking for anything that I couldn’t get all by myself but what I don’t want to happen is that I miss out on my salvation by putting mans law over Gods!

    I’m sorry y’all! I will NOT take the mark of the beast nor will I indulge or support something that is against the will of the Creator!

    I support your right to pursue anything and everything that you wish to do as a human being and as a child of God who has been granted this thing called Free Will, but don’t expect me to go against my commands as I believe them to be to be a part of this order!
