So Starbucks decides to color their coffee cup red as a holiday theme. However, since they want to be politically correct and not offend anyone, they do not add a "holiday" message. And now, a shitload of Christians are up in arms over it.
The thought here is this - who gives a shit?
In a world full of suffering and pain what difference does it make what color a coffee cup is? As for all the so-called Christians that think it offends Jesus not to have a Christian message on the cup, I think their time might be better spent helping the poor in honor of Jesus. If they want the damned cup to carry a Christmas message the Christ would approve of, how about buying a homeless person one of those red cups of coffee and saying "This cup-of-Joe is a present from Jesus. Merry Christmas!" Maybe even throw in a donut or a sandwich and really send that Christmas message. And you know what? I don't think the color of the cup makes a difference to the "holiday". Its giving a cup of warmth and a message of caring that makes the difference.
As for Starbucks, if they were to scared to add a Christmas message to their "holiday" red cup, they should have just left it alone. By the way, a red cup must be a big hit in Communist countries.
And one more thought. If I take my coffee black, does that mean I support black people against racists? If I get tea, does that mean I support Asian tea growers, most of whom are Buddhists or Muslims? Does drinking hot chocolate mean I want to help Central and South American nations and Mexico where chocolate is produced?
Maybe Jesus should have used a disposable cup at the last supper. That would have prevented all the people from searching for the Holy Grail, killing anyone in their path. Who can say?

KPissed - Who recalls a biblical warning against strong drinks (like black coffee?). Isaiah 5:11 "Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow after strong drink..." AMEN
