Unsettled Christianity

Gloria Dei homo vivens – St Irenaeus
November 9th, 2015 by Joel Watts


have you heard the latest about Starbucks… Supposedly, they are murdering Christians as they enter the door. Some Christians have been found crucified and hung over the door as warning signs to other Christians not to enter.

I mean, that is sorta what you’d expect and not the fact that they chose a red cup as their holiday color rather than images of the winter wonderland.

Seriously, Christians are ticked that Starbucks would chose to have a red cup (which happens to the color of Advent) than pictures of woodland creatures covered in snow.

Because, Jesus.
