“Through its corporate donations, Starbucks contributes to one of the most racist organizations in our nation’s history…Planned Parenthood operates the nation’s largest chain of abortion facilities, and almost 80 per cent of its facilities are in minority neighborhoods. About 13 per cent of American women are black, but they have more than 35 per cent of the abortions.”
Dr. Alveda King, Washington Examiner, May 29, 2018
Margaret Sanger, the evil genius behind Planned Parenthood…the one who said, “We must rid the world of morons, misfits and the maladjusted” (see her hard to find book “The Pivot of Civilization”) and who had no interest in the well being of blacks and Jews, etc.…. must be delighted with the good folks at Starbucks. She’d be at the drive-thru every morning. While they are “virtue-signaling” by making it known that they are re-training their personnel to be sensitive to minorities and all people (A nice idea) …at the end of the day they support the killing of approximately 275 unborn African-American children…EVERY DAY! (Yes I know that Starbucks claims moral immunity because the funds are generated by matching employee donations to charities. As if that matters. They do not have to agree to such matching contributions to Planned Parenthood. Would they agree to match donations to the Ku Klux Klan?)
So…. while it is nice that they are committed to treating minorities with dignity, they are totally indifferent to babies, black and white and in-between, having their skulls crushed and their arms torn off or their skin burned away. Our current President has put policies in place to impede Planned Parenthood’s holocaust, but I twitch when I stop at Starbucks for an over-priced cup of snob coffee. I must think about this.
Yet…pocketbook protests are problematic too. If we check online which companies support Planned Parenthood, we will feel even more compromised. Shall we all change banks? And stores? And vehicle manufacturers etc.? The list is endless.
We are reminded that the world is corrupted by corporate sin. Is our church’s sound equipment manufactured, in some cases, by repressive labor in distant places? The smart phone? Put together by people, in some cases, living in brutal poverty. The denominational churches at which some people worship? Part of their offerings go to yup…Planned Parenthood.
What to do? I’m not sure. Only make coffee at home but be sure the coffee maker is from a company that is not involved with corporate sin? Probably quite impossible. Here is one idea: at the very least, we can write to the corporate leaders at Starbucks and express our outrage at their support for Planned Parenthood. And they will not change that policy and may not even thank us for the “input.” But we will be consistent with the Word of God that tells us the most robust way to fight evil is with prayer and action! For forty years, I have prayed that God would end abortion in America and worldwide.
And now, in Ireland many citizens are rejoicing that babies may be put to death. Perhaps Starbucks will open more shops. They have many in Ireland. May their customers rejoice with them…until Judgment Day.
Psalm 10:12 (NIV) Arise, LORD! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless.
