Yes. the cup thing (among others) IS stupid

"The War On Christmas" is easily the dumbest thing that doesn't exist that people desperately wish was real. Equally dumb but unfortunately all-too-real are those who believe it. This applies to anybody bothered on any level by "Happy Holidays" or what is or isn't printed on a disposable coffee cup.
Here's your cup, dummy.

If you're taking your moral and ethical lead from somebody like Joshua Feuerstein, the Bubba the Love Sponge of evangelical trolls, you need to pull your head out of your ass and get your shit together on a general level.
"To be sure, there is a very real threat to Christianity.  Yet it is not atheists, homosexuals, Muslims, or even red paper cups that threaten Christianity.
It is shysters.
People with no soul who prey on Christian followers and rob them financially and spiritually not only hurt their flock, but give all religion a bad name by making it unpalatable for so many who see things like this and equate those seeking strength through faith as paranoid and stupid." - 'SemDem', The Daily Kos, November 10, 2015
Of course, the fact that I don't actually know anybody who is bothered by this stuff might mean the second dumbest thing that doesn't exist might be The War On The War On Christmas and that this whole deal with the cups could just be brilliant marketing by Starbucks. In which case, well-played coffee company.
