Radio host calls Josh Feuerstein an ‘entrepreneurial bigot’ during live CNN segment

Joshua Feuerstein is a viral sensation yet again with a ranting video about Starbucks’ “War on Christmas” and their decision to remove Christmas imagery from their annual Holiday cups. The pastor went on CNN to discuss his latest crusade with anchor Brianna Keilar and radio host Pete Dominick.

Joshua Feuerstein is a viral sensation yet again with a ranting video about Starbucks’ “War on Christmas” and their decision to remove Christmas imagery from their annual Holiday cups. The pastor went on CNN to discuss his latest crusade with anchor Brianna Keilar and radio host Pete Dominick.

Unfortunately, there was an audio issue that prevented Feuerstein from hearing Dominick dismantle his opinions and put the focus on Feuerstein’s other videos, where he calls for Christians to arm themselves to fight gay rights, which landed him in the news before.

Last week, Starbucks revealed their 2015 Holliday cups, which are plain red. Feuerstein posted a rant online where he ordered a coffee, telling the barista that his name was “Merry Christmas,” which he said was “tricking” Starbucks into acknowledging Jesus.

“I think it’s much more than just a cup, I think it’s the overall narrative and I think that the cup is very symbolic – parabolic – in that it parallels a society that is essentially trying to remove Christmas from Christmas,” said Feuerstein, also mentioning the South Park Mall’s removal of their Christmas tree and cities banning churches from displaying nativity scenes.

Dominick struggled to contain laughter while Feuerstein spoke, and responded by calling Feuerstein an “entrepreneurial bigot” for his numerous attempts to ignite outrage online. Dominick mentioned Feuerstein’s previous anti-gay rights videos and mocked him for criticizing Starbucks, then buying their coffee and telling others to do the same. Feurersetin could not hear Dominick’s accusations, and stuck to the Starbucks issue when responding.

Dominick also pointed out to Feurerstein that Starbucks never used Christian imagery on their merchandise, and have always said “Happy Holidays.” In fact, the Starbucks cups have used minimal designs and patterns for the last few years, so a shift to total minimalism is not unprecedented.

The other issues that Feuerstein mentioned — the Christmas tree and nativity removal — are similarly inflated. The South Park Mall in Charolette, NC, attempted to display a North Pole glacier in the center of the mall, but will install a Christmas tree instead after public outcry. There are no reports of church nativity scenes ever being removed by the government.

Although the audio issues complicated the debate, Feuerstein managed to get his point in: Christians make up a large segment of the population, and should speak out when they are being oppressed.

He ended his appearance by asking “If this is not a Judeo-Christian society, why did Obama have to pretend to be one to get elected?”

    Mr. Feuerstein has been a religious bigot as well as a hate-monger toward anyone who does not see religion as he does. Watch any of his videos if you doubt what I say is factual.

    Lets deconstruct this guy’s arguments. 1. Even in previous years they had reindeer and ornaments on their cups…NOT Christian symbols anyway. 2. Yes, the Mall in Charlotte tried something different with the glacier…it pretty much bombed on its on…but regardless, trees are pagan symbols, not Christian. They are nice things to have, but they are not related to the religious aspects of the holiday.

    He says that City’s are prohibiting displays of manger scenes in front of Churches. Not happening, and I challenge him to cite one single situation where a local government prohibit a church from having a manger scene, otherwise, it’s just hot air.

    Also, we were not founded on Judaeo-Christian beliefs. We were founded as a Democratic Republic which a government philosophy arising from Greek and Roman thought.

    As for how many views his video has…that’s not a vote on how many people support this stupidity…it’s more a testament to how we can’t drive past a train wreck without slowing down to look.

    But it all sounded good to the krazy kristian kooks.
