‘Tis the Season to Get Pissed Off

Halloween decorations are still scattered across neighborhood lawns, but Americans across the country have forgotten Thanksgiving completely and turned their sight towards Christmas, and boy are they angry.

It may be the most wonderful time of the year for many, but Christians and other traditionalists are feeling nothing but anger in the advent of the annual celebration of Jesus’s birth. What’s causing the latest Christmas crusade? Hint: it’s not persecution, at least not in the way you’d think.

It’s about coffee and a mall. That’s all it’s come down to, and already, thousands of people are up in arms at the time of year that should be focused on good will towards men. You may have heard by now that Starbucks’s annual holiday season cup features a minimalist design, that is, plain red, instead of the usual variation of snowflakes, bells, ornaments, winter sports, or other insignia of the holidays. The lack of decoration has caused an uproar, leading people to accuse Starbucks of trying to take the Christ out of Christmas and otherwise undermine the Christian holiday. But one self-proclaimed evangelist and social media personality came up with an idea that’s turning the PC debacle on its head.
