Rob Tornoe has an excellent post and cartoon up calling out Papa John. I point to Rob’s post because what I’m about to link to is the Conservative flip side.
You see, NOM (National Organization for Marriage) is organizing a boycott against Starbucks for the company’s support of gay marriage. Oh… you haven’t heard about it? Perhaps that’s because you live in the wrong place.
The Colorado Independent reports that officials from the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) have vowed to make Starbucks (along with other companies that support same-sex marriage) pay a “price” in Middle Eastern countries that are hostile to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights.
“So for example, in Qatar, in the Middle East, we’ve begun working to make sure that there’s some price to be paid for this,” Brian Brown says in audio recording of the conference call, which can heard on the Independent’s website. “These are not countries that look kindly on same-sex marriage. And this is where Starbucks wants to expand, as well as India. So we have done some of this; we’ve got to do a lot more.”
And Conservatives actually became upset when people referred to them as the American Taliban?
NOM knows a boycott in the United States won’t work, so they had to leave the U.S.A. to find people who share their values. Amazing.
