The National Organization For Marriage’s two year boycott of global coffee giant Starbucks “has been an abject (and laughable) failure,” reports Jeremy Hooper at Good As You.

The pro-equality company maintains 21,000 stores in over 65 countries, and is thriving. NOM, on the other hand, has lost just about every thing it has attempted in the 2+ years since the anti-gay organization told supporters to “Dump Starbucks.”

But leave it to increasingly option-less NOM president Brian Brown to paint a veneer of illusion onto the situation.

In an interview on Catholic radio, Brown claims that NOM’s boycott has persuaded “many countries” to bar Starbucks from entry.

Listen:

Starbucks’ stock has soared 55 percent since in the two years since NOM launched the boycott.
