Андреа Уильямс из организации Christian Concern: This is a denial of historical reality and the great Christian heritage behind the American Dream that has so benefitted Starbucks. This also denies the hope of Jesus Christ and His story told so powerfully at this time of year.
Симон Калверт из Christian Institute: What is it about Christmas that Starbucks are afraid of celebrating? Haven’t they heard it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the season of good will to ALL men? They should get involved and stop being scrooges.
Рахим Кассам, колумнист в Breitbart в заметке, озаглавленной "War On Christmas: Starbucks Red Cups Are Emblematic Of The Christian Culture Cleansing Of The West" пишет: “But Ragih,” I hear you say. “Why do you care about what Starbucks is doing anyway? It’s crap coffee and none of us buy it.” Sure, but plenty of people do. And subliminally, they’re being told/reminded that this time of the year is no longer about Christmas. It’s about the colour red, or something. It’s a “holiday season”. Don’t say Merry Christmas. It’s offensive.
