Barton: Drinking Starbucks Is Like Committing Treason Against God

Several months ago, David Barton told an audience that they could not continue to patronize Starbucks because of the company's support for marriage equality, declaring that "you can't drink Starbucks and be biblically right."

Given this position, it was no surprise to see that the guest on today's "Wallbuilders Live" was Chris Walker of 2nd Vote, an app designed to allow conservatives to know which companies support liberal policies so they can avoid shopping there or buying their products.

As Barton explained, shopping at places like Starbucks that support a liberal agenda is basically like committing treason against God:

God does draw a distinction, sometimes that's called holiness or sanctification or whatever theological terms you want to use, but there is right behavior and wrong behavior. And one of the things God makes really clear is you're not to be helping the bad guys advance their agenda which is against God.

Sometimes we do that without realizing that we do it. We're kind of really ignorant of sometimes the people we help and what they stand for and so we've got a guest on today that's giving us a really high-tech tool to help us understand whether certain companies or groups or people are absolute enemies of God; now, I'm not talking about people who differ with us theologically  on this point or that, I'm talking about the whole value system, people who reject God's value system across the board and if we go help them, then we're in trouble with God because we're helping the enemies.  It'd be like an act of treason if this were a military term, but to do that spiritually, you can't go join the enemies of God and expect God to bless you on all the values and all the things he said was right and wrong.

Then you'd be unpure and sent to a wigwam by yourself for 7 days or find a busty blonde to come lick you clean while he pleasures his self while watching..

Why is everyone always trying to be God's mouthpiece? What makes him so inclined to decide when and how God wants things done and what will happens to you if you don't obey his interpretation of the Bible. Sounds like he views himself as some sort of mini God or like he has a personal line that the rest of us are unaware of.
