WND has a story about an Ohio woman who got a little militant atheism mixed in with her latte. The cup in question contained the following quote:
“Why in moments of crisis do we ask God for strength and help? As cognitive beings, why would we ask something that may well be a figment of our imaginations for guidance? Why not search inside ourselves for the power to overcome? After all, we are strong enough to cause most of the catastrophes we need to endure.”
The quote was written a Starbucks customer from Canada, and was included as part of an effort by the Starbucks to collect different viewpoints and spur discussion. I don’t know about you but at 7AM I am not very interested in different viewpoints or discussion with anyone.
“Just leave me alone, please.”
I am going to write to Starbucks and ask that my quote above be included in the next printing.
