    Christian evangelist claims Starbucks hates Christmas

    A US Christian evangelist has accused Starbucks of 'hating Jesus' by ditching festive images from its holiday cup design in a video rant that has gone viral.

    Joshua Feuerstein has taken issue with the global coffee chain forgoing its usual cup designs of Christmas trees and snowflakes and instead chosen a simple red cup with the company's green and white logo on it, NY Post reports.

    "Starbucks removed Christmas from their cups because they hate Jesus," Mr Feuerstein vented in the video rant to his Facebook page, which called on fellow Christians to "prank" the social media pages of the coffee chain with #MerryChristmasStarbucks.

    His rant, which he uploaded on Friday, has been viewed more than 10 million times and has sparked more than 30,000 comments towards the coffeehouse and the outspoken Mr Feuerstein.

    "I'm officially banning Starbucks from my life," Crosspointe Christian Church student pastor Nate Weaver wrote in a post.

    "Love it! I don't give Starbucks my business, but I definitely will just do this #MerryChristmasStarbucks," Barbara Mcwilliams said.

    Meanwhile, as Mr Feuerstein took issue with Starbucks, a large number of Facebook users took issue with his rant.

    "This is ignorant on so many levels," Natalie Robertson wrote.

    "Diversity is the beauty of this country. Guess what? If you don't like Starbucks plain red cups, don't go to Starbucks. You didn't "prank Starbucks" you're picking a fight for no reason."

    As well as taking issue with his rant, Starbucks worker, Samantha Decker, moved to correct the facts.

    "I'm a Christian who works at Starbucks and I was slightly offended by this video," Ms Decker wrote.

    "Not everyone who works there is against Christ… and also I've never been told not to say Merry Christmas."

    Commenting on the decision to change its cup design, Starbucks’ vice president of design and content Jeffrey Fields said: "This year we wanted to usher in the holidays with a purity of design that welcomes all of our stories.

    “We’re embracing the simplicity and the quietness of it.”

    since my toaster has stopped etching a picture of the bearded man riding a motocycle juggling either polar bears or fat orangutangs I have been forced to face the fact that it has been infested by the devil who I am reliably informed hates the baby jebus

    the world has some serious issues that do not get reported in the mainstream press

    Coffee chains melt my head. I drink coffee that’s it. Plain old coffee. You go into one of these places and ask for a coffee and they look at you as if you have horns. Surely, it is not a stretch of ones mental capabilities to deduce that when a person does asks for a coffee, it is now generally called Americano.... Then you have to squint your eyes at the menu that is 10ft behind the bloody counter and another 10ft above eye level to see what they are calling coffee these days.....you are then asked what size you want. Then they serve your coffee in a boat with a handle you can’t get your fingers into. Is it that hard?...

    Never mind all that fancy coffee stuff, what matters is that Starbucks refuse to have Jesus feature on their mugs - bloody atheists want to destroy Amerika!

    Good for Starbucks. Rare a company refuses to take advantage of Jesus to encourage mindless consumption over the Christmas season.

    Christmas these days has fuck all to do with christ. Nothing but a mindless consumption orgy for the masses.

    Least of all his birthday, the Sweet Baby Jesus wasn't born Dec 25th.

    Probably didn't drink coffee either.

    Looks more to me like they hate Christmas trees and snowflakes.

    And sure as hell wouldn't have carried a gun and I'm pretty sure he would have thought universal health care an excellent idea.

    I am with the Dawg on this one, I fail to see the connection between christmas trees and snowflakes and Jesus , not that I am a true believer in either.

    Snowflakes was a racial slur used and directed at educated African-Americans at one time. I've heard it used by Vietnam era vets
