Dear Marriage Supporter,
We are urging consumers across the globe to "Dump Starbucks" because the massive international corporation has taken a corporate-wide position that marriage between one man and one woman should be eliminated and that same-sex marriage should become the norm. As such, Starbucks has declared it will use its influence and resources in a culture war against at least half its US customers, and against the vast majority of its international consumers who do not share Starbucks' position.
On January 24, 2012, the Starbucks corporation issued a memorandum to all "US Partners" declaring that same-sex marriage "is aligned with Starbucks business practices" and "is core to who we are and what we value as a company."
In addition to declaring its corporate-wide position in support of gay marriage, Starbucks also used its resources to participate in a legal case seeking to overturn a federal law declaring marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
In taking these actions, Starbucks has declared a culture war on all people of faith (and millions of others) who believe that the institution of marriage as one man and one woman is worth preserving.
NOM does not take this step lightly.
Unlike our opponents, we would never take action against a corporation because of the statements of one of its executives. However, Starbucks has declared gay marriage to be a corporate value and has intentionally inserted itself into the debate. Furthermore, NOM officials attended a meeting of the Board of Directors of Starbuck to bring this issue to their attention, and they did nothing.
This is why we must urge all consumers to "dump Starbucks," as well as Seattle's Best Coffee and Evolution Fresh juices, which are owned by Starbucks.
A portion of every cup of coffee purchased at a Starbucks anywhere in the world goes to fund this corporate assault on marriage. Voters in thirty US states have voted to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. No state vote has ever supported gay marriage.
In many areas of the world where Starbucks does business, the concept of "gay marriage" is unheard of and deeply offensive to cultural, moral and religious values. We urge consumers across the globe to join the "Dump Starbucks" campaign.
By going to www.dumpstarbucks.com, you can sign our petition, and take action to contact Starbucks directly. You can also see places near you where you can buy coffee rather than patronize Starbucks. Let your local Starbucks manager and the corporate leadership know that you've joined the Dump Starbucks campaign, and tell them where you'll be going instead to buy coffee.
Please sign the Dump Starbucks petition to register your protest of Starbucks waging a culture war against its customers who believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

Baylor Univ. Applauded for Yanking Starbucks Coffee Cups
Containers Display Homosexual-Affirming Quotation from Author
By Jim Brown
October 3, 2005
(AgapePress) - A pro-family leader is praising the largest Baptist university in the world for pulling coffee cups from its Starbucks store that featured a quote from a homosexual author.
Baylor University in Waco, Texas, has removed the offending coffee cups from its Starbucks store, citing the school's opposition to the homosexual lifestyle. The cups that were removed display a quote from homosexual author Armistead Maupin lamenting that he waited so long before embracing his homosexual identity.
Bob Knight with the Culture and Family Institute in Washington, DC, says his group has challenged the Starbucks Coffee Company by asking why it has a pro-homosexual quote, but not one from a former homosexual.
"Starbucks shouldn't be putting a cup like that out, certainly not on college campuses," says Knight. "And I think Baylor was right in saying [it was] not going to distribute something like this [because] it goes against [the school's] mission." He also suggests the school stand firm on its convictions and tell those who would criticize Baylor "that's the way it goes."
According to the CFI director, the popular coffee retailer has a history of supporting pro-homosexual and other liberal causes. Knight points out Starbucks' sponsorship of the San Diego Gay Pride Parade and Festival, which he says included "nudity, sex acts, and even a float from a porn store in the parade" as well as a :children's garden."
"I don't think they ought to be mixing those things," Knight states. "And when it was brought to Starbucks' attention that they shouldn't promote this kind of thing, they just said 'tough, we're going to do it anyway.'"
Knight suggests that opponents of the homosexual agenda either let Starbucks know they do not appreciate its support for pro-homosexual causes -- or buy their coffee elsewhere.
The coffee cup controversy began after a staffer with Knight's group wrote a column for WorldNetDaily revealing that Starbucks has been shoveling dollars into the homosexual movement.
