Let’s laugh a little.

Parkasa, a hard-line Muslim group in Malaysia that touts around 700,000 members, is joining another Muslim group in Indonesia, Muhammadiyah, in calling for the boycott of Starbucks.

Almost 30 million people belong to Muhammadiyah, the second-largest mainstream Muslim organization in Indonesia. They have denounced the popular coffee chain over the company’s former chief executive’s past praise for the gay community. Both organizations want Starbucks’ operating license to be revoked because the stance goes against Islamic teachings.

“Our objection is because they are promoting something that is against the human instinct, against human behavior and against religion. That’s why we are against it,” Amini Amir Abdullah, head of Perkasa’s Islamic affairs bureau, stated to Reuters in an interview earlier this week. Homosexuality goes against the country’s constitution.

 

(Snip)

 

So which is it, Starbucks? Do you support the gay community or do you stand in solidarity with the Muslim community? It’s becoming increasingly obvious you can’t have it both ways.
