I’ve not looked too deeply into the precise origin of the notion that plain red cup wrappers instead of red cup wrappers with snowflakes are an attack on Christmas, but I’ve picked up enough here and there to be satisfied that it’s not as presented.
It’s viral marketing, or a joke, or something similar. The stated purpose and the real purpose don’t match. Whether or not “outraged” Christians ran with the notion, it didn’t start with an outraged Christian. It started with an attention-seeker. (And I wouldn’t be surprised to learn in the coming days that the effort was at least partially intended to make Christians look bad.)
Well, mission accomplished.
If you’re wound up about these stupid cups because you perceive them as an attack on Jesus, then to be kind, you’re being rather impertinent.
Jesus told us over and over what was important to Him. Do you realize that nearly everything He said boils down to either “Follow Me” or “Love one another”?
From where, then, does the perception spring that a coffee company is coming after your most cherished beliefs, and it is your holy duty to stand athwart them, duly outraged?
If you’re really upset about these cups, then don’t be such a tool. Use some discretion in choosing where and how to express your discontent. You look ridiculous bloviating about this silly thing that does not matter.
