Homophobic Christian extremist gets extremely mad at Starbucks cup on CNN

Homophobic Christian extremist gets extremely mad at Starbucks cup on CNN

The debate over the new red and green cups from Starbucks rages on.

Last night, professional Chaz Bono impersonator and self-proclaimed “Social Media Evangelist” Josh Feuerstein somehow managed to weasel his way onto CNN where he discussed his outrage over the new paper cups from Starbucks, which he, like many Christian extremists, interprets as an act of war against Christmas.

The segment begins with a YouTube clip of Feuerstein bragging about going into a Starbucks and telling the barista his name was “Merry Christmas” just so she would write the words on his cup.

“Guess what, Starbucks?” Feuerstein says in the clip. “I tricked you into putting ‘Merry Christmas’ on your cup!”

Once the clip is finished, host Brianna Keilar asks Feuerstein why the cups are making him “so angry.”

“It’s much more than just a cup!” Feuerstein replies. “The cup is very symbolic … It parallels a society that is trying to remove Christmas from Christmas! … Here in America, 73 percent of people identify as Christian! We’re founded on Judeo-Christian principles!”

Feuerstein was also joined StandUP with Pete SiriusXM host Pete Dominick, who accused him of being an “entrepreneurial bigot,” a charge with Feuerstein didn’t seem to understand.

Later in the segment, Keilar mentions all the Christmas-themed items Starbucks carries, including its “Christmas Blend” coffee.

“If they were really anti-Christmas,” Keilar asks, “wouldn’t they be anti-Christmas across the board?”

Feuerstein dodges the question and instead talks about how many views his YouTube channel has gotten in the past three days and spewing off some Donald Trump nonsense about being tired of political correctness before launching into an anti-Obama rant.

“If this was not a Judeo-Christian society,” Feuerstein asks, “then why did Obama have to pretend to be one to get elected?”

“I do have to fact check you, Joshua,” Keilar replies, “because the President is a Christian.”
