Maggie Gallagher Is a Loaded Diaper

Maggie Gallagher, founder of the National Organization for Marriage and all-around bigot, wrote an opinion article for uExpress about the recent Starbucks annual shareholder meeting. Not one to bury the lede, she titled her piece “DUMP STARBUCKS.” Obviously she’s got a thing or two to learn about subtlety.

She name-checks a Baptist preacher, then goes on to say that one of her minions, Jonathan Baker, attended this meeting and asked if the board really approved the statement that gay marriage is “core to the Starbucks brand.” She reports that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz replied in the affirmative, and was applauded.

She then goes on to say that she wanted to ask a question too, but the mic was turned off before she could speak. Therefore, she decided to dump her brain-droppings on the Internet. She goes on to say although she doesn’t believe in boycotts, she is certainly calling for a boycott of Starbucks because by gosh by golly marriage is between a man and a woman and only for the purpose of making babies and don’t try to tell her otherwise.

Here’s her call to action: We are asking customers who oppose gay marriage to call both their local Starbucks branch and company headquarters to communicate that they wish to be able to buy a great cup of Seattle coffee without promoting gay marriage, and to switch to another brand of coffee.

You know what? I haven’t set foot in a Starbucks for a couple of years. I think I’ll skip on over to my local outlet and buy a round for whoever’s there, and let them know it’s being done in support of gay marriage. Doesn’t that sound festive?
