Starbucks Holiday Cups - What's the Big Deal?

  1. say "Happy Saturnalia", 

  2. say "Hanukkah Rules",

  3. feature embossed demons or devils, 

  4. promote Satanism,

  5. promote consumerism,

  6. insult Christmas, or

  7. reference Harry Potter. Starbucks hasn't forbade their stores to decorate for the season either.  They simply now supply plain cups so that people can either write or draw on them. The level of public outcry over this demonstrates that we need to stop telling people that it's okay to be offended by everything that doesn't go their way.  It's not a verbal message, but it's definitely a social message being passed around. Maybe it's time to tell people to put their grown-up pants on and deal with it.
