Maggie Gallagher on the "Church of Starbucks"


NOM co-founder Maggie Gallagher in National Review's The Corner blog:

I was at the annual board meeting of the Church of Starbucks in Seattle on Wednesday.

Honestly that’s what it felt like. It opened with a self-congratulatory pitch by Howard Schultz on how terrible life in America is, and how much he is helping, then it melded smoothly into a “our values are the barrier to entry for other coffeecompanies” bottom line.

I was there with the National Organization for Marriage, to ask Howard Schultz if it’s really true that gay marriage is “core” to Starbucks’s brand and its values.

He said yes.

NOM launched a campaign.
