The whole idea that Christians are being persecuted in the US is so blatantly absurd I normally give it about as much attention as I would a 4 yr-old throwing a tantrum – you know, none. But this year’s attack on the Starbuck’s paper coffee cup is just too ridiculous to ignore. So move over I’m jumping in.

First may I say to all my Christian friends out there – coffee doesn’t belong to you. You shouldn’t care in what container I get mine. There is not one Christian ritual involving the drinking, pouring, bathing in or dunking of coffee. Jesus didn’t turn water into coffee. Its origin may or may not be traced back to 850 ,A.D. but it wasn’t widely known about or publicly consumed until almost 2000 B.C. Do you see a cup of coffee on the table at The Last, Supper? No? Then just shut up and let me drink my coffee  in whatever damn cup I want!

.The persecution of Christians ended a couple thousand years ago. So unless there’s an actual lion chompin’ on your ass – get away from my coffee!

I’m back.
