Christians concerned Starbucks serves lattes laced with ‘sodomites’ semen’ (from “Patheos”)


Would you like whipped cream with that? Conservative Christians worry that Starbucks is using “sodomites’ semen” to flavor their coffee after hearing some outrageous claims made by an anti-gay New York City pastor.

The controversial leader of the anti-gay Harlem ATLAH Missionary Church, James Manning, is making news after claiming that Starbucks is using “sodomites’ semen” to flavor their lattes.

Manning says that the reason all these “untoward types” (gays) hang out at Starbucks is because the semen “flavors up” the coffee “and it makes you think that you’re having a good time drinking that cup of latte with the semen in it.”

The following is an excerpt from the recently released video via the Manning Report:

Starbucks is a place where these types (gays) frequent and a lot of body fluids are exchanged there. The thing that I was not aware of is that … what Starbucks was doing is that they were taking specimens of male semen and they were putting it in the blends of their latte. Now this is the absolute truth… It was a big article about an investigation into Starbucks using male semen and putting it into the blends of coffee that they sell.

I mean, can you imagine? And I believe that they were doing that. You know, Coca-Cola got started 100 years ago by using cocaine — they were actually using cocaine! — and they stayed off the federal government… because during the time they were using it there was no FDA…

But the deal is… that Starbucks has been… legally accused of using male semen in their latte… you know, my suspicion is that they’re getting their semen from sodomites. That’s what my suspicion is. And somebody has discovered that semen, like cord blood… has millions and millions of little zygotes in it, and it flavors up the coffee, and it makes you think you’re having a good time drinking that cup of latte with the semen in it.

Manning’s assertions are absurd, and more importantly, false. The information used to back up his outrageous claims was first published on the satirical site Huzlers.

Last week the homophobic minister claimed Starbucks patrons were “upscale sodomites” who spread Ebola. His remarks sparked a protest in which gay rights advocates handed out free coffee outside his church.

Previously Manning accused President Barack Obama of “[releasing] homo demons on the black man” and asserted that gay athletes are pedophiles.

Manning is a twisted and confused man preaching a gospel of ignorance and bigotry; it is tragic that some take him seriously.

For the record, Starbucks is not serving lattes laced with “sodomites’ semen.”

caffè sospeso

From Wikipedia

caffè sospeso ( suspended coffee) is a cup of coffee paid for in advance as an anonymous act of charity. The tradition began in the working-class cafes of Naples, where someone who had experienced good luck would order a sospeso, paying the price of two coffees but receiving and consuming only one. A poor person enquiring later whether there was a sospeso available would then be served a coffee for free. Coffee shops in other countries have adopted the sospeso to increase sales.

One 2010 account claims the tradition was over 100 years old, but declined during the postwar period, so that it is mainly observed around Christmastime. A 2008 article reported the tradition was obsolescent, the reporter visiting three bars where it had not been observed for at least 15 years. 

The sospeso gave the title to a 2008 journalism collection by Neapolitan Luciano De CrescenzoIl caffe sospeso: Saggezza quotidiana in piccoli sorsi, which helped publicise the tradition throughout Italy. The idea has been reported in cafés in Bulgaria Kiev, Melbourne,  Quebec,  Russia, Spain and Argentina A Dutch campaign at Christmas 2011 gave a discount on the price of the donated coffee.

The UK arm of coffee chain Starbucks signed up for a charity initiative based on the suspended coffee concept in April 2013, in which it said it would match the value of each suspended coffee with a cash donation to the Oasis charity.  The growth of the trend in other coffee shops in the UK also received media coverage around the same time.
