As Killer of Sacred Cows showed in this diary, NOM is in an uproar over the decision by Starbucks to support marriage equality.  So much so that they've launched a "Dump Starbucks" pledge for all those outraged anti-gay Christian fundamentalists who probably don't drink Starbucks coffee anyway to sign.  At the same time, supporters of Starbucks' decision have launched the Thank Starbucks Card to show gratitude to Starbucks for making this important endorsement of civil equality for gays and lesbians.

To say that the Thank Starbucks card is "outpacing" the Dump Starbucks pledge is quite an understatement.  That didn't stop Maggie Gallagher from taking to the Internet to gloat about attaining (at the time) over 7,000 pledges and...brace yourself...121 comments.  ZOMG!  Via Good As You:

Yes, Maggie is quite proud.  Quite proud indeed.  So proud that some comparative screenshots are in order.  Good As You did it first, but that comparison is in need of an update.  Follow me below the fold.

First, the Dump Starbucks website:

Now, the Thank Starbucks Card website:

Is there anything else that needs to be said?  Well, perhaps one thing:


It truly does suck to be NOM.  Now, if you haven't already, please feel free to sign the Thank Starbucks Card!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
