Pastor Supports Anti-Gay Starbucks Boycott by Purchasing Starbucks Products

I wrote a couple months back about the conservative campaign to boycott Starbucks over the corporation's support for marriage equality. Despite a worldwide effort to get people to dump Starbucks, Starbucks' sale have actually gone up since the boycott began in March.

Anyway, Pastor Bob Enyart of Denver Bible Church in Colorado thought it would be a great idea to demonstrate his participation in the "Dump Starbucks" boycott by purchasing a cup of coffee from Starbucks and pouring it down the sewer drain. I think he misses the point. Starbucks likely doesn't care what you do with their products after you purchase them. You can drink their coffee or you can toss it in the trash. They still got paid.

You can see Pastor Enyart's video here:
