Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
. . . upon stopping at Starbucks yesterday and being handed a white, non-seasonal cup instead of that uber-offensive anti-Christian plain red abomination purposefully devoid of the traditional Christian symbology of snowflakes, reindeer and holly boughs. I am so much less incensed by the "plain" white cup that was never supposed to be Christian in the first place.
Of course, someone pointed out to me that the "plain" red cups were never really plain, nor are the white ones. They all feature a green and white Starbucks logo. Against the red background of the "seasonal" or "holiday" cup, the green and white logo lends the cup a festive, almost Christmassy ambience. It's subtle. Way too subtle for most Christians to pick up on and, of course, The Donald, our new Lord and Saviour simply isn't wired for subtlety or understatement of any kind.
It's just good to be past all that for another year. I find having to take obligatory offense at things very stressful. It's hard to keep your hackles up over something that really doesn't matter.
