Ex-Gay Calls On Christians To Boycott Starbucks

ex-gay James Hartline

Christian activist and ex-gay James Hartline finds it painful to enter Starbucks because it reminds him of his former lifestyle. All the brushed steel and pastry constantly calls him back to the homosexual decadence that he enjoyed for 30 years. Yes, that’s right. 30 years of being gay only then to become a Christian ex-gay activist. We wonder what could happen after that much time to cause such a change. We suspect he had his heart broken.

He is now urging all Christians to patronize other, less faggy establishments.

    Oddly enough, it is my dream to go to a Starbuck’s and not run into a group of people studying the Bible so it’s a win-win situation.

    Yeah, this boycott will work as well as calling for evangelicals to boycott Apple products years ago, or Disneyland. Even evangelicals like fun and cool things, and if it gives you an uplifting buzz, better yet.

    That’s just nuts!

    I am sure the 50,000 Starbucks in San Francisco will see a sharp decline in sales!

    Yippee… fewer lines at Starbucks, and a guarantee of cooler clientele in line :) Now, if they would actually honor the boycott at Disneyland, the lines would be shorter. Of course, if you go at Halloween time, the lines are shorter, and they DO have trick or treating in the hotels. Plus, you go on Mr. Toad, and you go straight to hell.

    But I digress.

    If walking into a flippin’ coffee house makes him think of being gay, lets hope he doesn’t go to the YMCA or something. Beware, ladies, he is so going to “backslide”

    Idiot.

    that guy is a FLIPPIN IDIOT!!!! you don’t think about being gay when you walk into to starbucks!!!!! you think Caramel machito or cafe’ mocha?

  • Brian

    Why doesn’t he move to St. Peter’s Missouri where all the other F***** up idiots with this view live. Like my brother.
    Blows me away to think 30 years of his life were wasted and he continues to waste his life in such a manner to attempt to ruin others – A choice in both lives — hey buddy, enjoy your miserable single, divorced, unhappy, straight “christian” life — what an accomplishment and such HIGH aspirations for us all to achieve….

    It’s funny really. I know this guy. He shops at a local market where i used to work, right in the middle of San Diego’s gay neighborhood. The interesting thing is, he always goes in there and either a) looks like he is cruising, or b) is accompanied by younger, cuter, clearly gay BOYS.
