Starbucks is to print a religious quote on some of their coffee cups in America after right-wing groups accused them of promoting homosexuality. The company originally chose 63 quotations from writers, scientists, artists and cultural figures which they hoped would inspire customers and make them think. But gay author Armistead Maupin upset many Americans with his about how he regretted repressing his sexuality throughout his youth. One Baptist university in Texas was so outraged that it banned Starbucks. Now a quote from evangelist Rick Warren is to be included among the coffee cup texts.
