Starbucks CEO Smacks Down NOM!!!

"Any decision of this type or magnitude has be made with great thoughtfulness and I would assure you that a senior team at Starbucks discussed this. To be very candid with you, this was not something that was a difficult decision for us and we did share this with the board as well. [snip] We made that decision, in our view, through the lens of humanity and being the kind of company that embraces diversity." - Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz, responding to NOM's complaint about his company's support for marriage equality. The assembled stockholders responded with strong applause.

UPDATE: NOM is already blasting their response on Twitter. They had their boycott site all set up and ready to launch.
