Visiting Pastor tells Huntsville Congregation to Ditch Starbucks

Posted: Updated:

HUNTSVILLE, Ala (WZDX) - During a sermon at Whitesburg Baptist Church, guest pastor David Barton told Christians to stop visiting Starbucks because of the company's support of gay marriage.

"Biblically there is no way a Christian can help support what is attacking God.  I am sorry.  You have to find something else to drink.  You can't drink Starbucks and be biblically right on this thing.  It is just a real simple principle," the former Texas Pastor said during the sermon given May 19th.

Since that sermon, his comments have been all over the Internet, getting over 12,000 views on youtube.  The response from people all over the Tennessee Valley is mixed.

"You cannot tell me where I can and cannot have coffee and tell me I am not a Christian if I drink coffee at Starbucks," Anna Arthur said.

Others agree with the message.  "That would be against my religion.  I wouldn't support that," Veronica McLin said.

Whitesburg Baptist Church and David Barton were not immediately available for comment.
