Starbucks recently pissed off Baylor University by printing:
“My only regret about being gay is that I repressed it for so long. I surrendered my youth to the people I feared when I could have been out there loving someone. Don’t make that mistake yourself. Life’s too [expletive] short.”
Baylor freaked out and pulled all the offending cups from their Starbucks store – apparently, there are no Gays in Waco, Texas.
I find Chuck Curries’s attitude toward the Baylor debacle refreshing, but I am more inclined to support McSweene's view of the subject.
If you love someone, set them free. If they come back, make sure you get the money they owe from before you set them free.
Do I care that Starbucks will make a god reference on a future coffee cup? Hell no, Starbucks, you go right ahead and print whatever you like. I’ve ate a thousand In-N-Out burgers and never once read their subliminal bible passage.
