I’m not even sure I want to enter this debate but I already commented on another post here. I would like to point out that I am Christian. I was born a Protestant and converted to Catholicism when I got married 36 years ago. We raised our children Catholic and they were alter servers for many years. I work in a Catholic High School and my kids went all through school in the Separate School system.
I celebrate Christmas, like most Christians. I love the story of how Mary and Joseph had to sleep in a stable where Mary gave birth to Jesus. The wise men saw the star and came to bring Him gifts. It’s a beautiful story.
Why in heaven’s name does any Christian think that a coffee company has any responsibility to adopt this holiday? I’m sure they have thousands of employees of all religions. They have millions of customers of all religions. Their previous cups did not depict Christmas in any way. It had pictures of snowflakes and reindeer. Where does it say “We are Celebrating Christmas”?
This is such a ridiculous controversy. Celebrate at home with your family. Donate to the less fortunate. Go to church! Please stop assuming everyone is celebrating your (our) holiday. That’s not even Christian. That’s pompous!
Please feel free to comment. I’m aware this may not be my most popular post but I welcome debate.
