Never grovel for absolution from the Church of Social Justice

Church of Social Justice

There’s a scene in the old Showtime series “The Tudors” where the King of France – donning sackcloth and stripped of his royal adornments – makes the pilgrimage to Rome.

This was done to show that even the most high were subjects to the Church – lowly penitents in need of absolution.

Well, Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson is pretty much doing the same thing — crawling on his hands and knees to beg forgiveness.

Except, he isn’t a penitent of the Catholic Church but rather a penitent in the Church of Social Justice.

After an employee at a Philadelphia Starbucks called the police on two men who weren’t ordering anything, Johnson immediately issued his mea culpa. But it wasn’t enough.

It’s never enough.

So today, appearing on “Good Morning America” Johnson offered more.

He said, “…I’d say there’s training, more training that we’re going to do with our store managers, not only around the guidelines but training around unconscious bias.”

“Unconscious bias.” Good grief.

Bow and scrape all you like, Kevin.

But no matter how penitent you are, the Church of Social Justice will never forgive.

After all, despite your mea culpa over the weekend, they still protested outside of that Starbucks. And they still are pushing for a boycott.

In the Church of Social Justice there is no such thing as absolution for perceived sins.

To tell you the truth, I feel bad for the employee who called the police.

Starbucks has a policy that bathrooms are only for customers. These two guys hadn’t bought anything but wanted to use the bathroom. So what did the employee do? Well, follow company policy.

In other words, it wasn’t “unconscious bias,” but Starbucks’ very conscious policy that caused this non-event.

But then again, “training around unconscious bias” is the Church of Social Justice’s version of “say ten Hail Marys.”

The only difference, of course, is no matter how “heartily sorry” Johnson might be “for having offended thee,” no priest in the Church of Social Justice will ever offer forgiveness.

This is why groveling for penance to the Church of Social Justice is such a supreme waste of time.

There is no confessional where your sins remain private.

For the Church of Social Justice, your sins must be splattered all over social media and your life destroyed.

And if Johnson believes that bowing to their self-righteous indignation will spare him from him from the torments of social media hell, he is sadly mistaken.

    To apologize to ANY Prog faction, for ANY perceived “sin”, is tantamount to throwing MORE chum in the water, in the desperate hope that the sharks will GO AWAY!
    BUT….with the Social Justistas, it’s actually even WORSE than this:
    If you even fit their PROFILE of a “Sinner”, even just a little… then you inherently ARE one!
    If you are Straight, White, Christian, American, Patriot, Male, non-Handicapped, non-‘Poor’, or ANY of these, you are SUBJECT to the Sanctimony of Social Justice(TM), depending on which of their Factions are mad at who today. Your ONLY out is to loudly and publicly denounce and “throw under the bus” as many “People Like You” as you can. And even THEN, as stated in this article, they still HATE YOU. But For Now(TM) you are a useful enough idiot that they will pretend to throw you some love.. (and THIS is what makes the White Prog the most ONEROUS animal in the world!). After all, Komrads, the best way to avoid being the Subject of the Witch Hunt…is to JOIN the Witch Hunt…

    WOW! That, sir, almost-perfectly summarizes the Cultural Totalitarianism that’s CRIPPLING us. Like the ‘vestigial tail(bone)’, the nub of which is still with us mammals biologically, we may further DE-volve in the not too distant future into gelatinous wimps WITHOUT a spinal column until we say ENOUGH!

    Saw the local news report earlier today. Because of this craziness, regular customers could not get coffee, etc. and it did not go over well with the regular customers. The entire shop was overtaken by these dopey activists — with their ready-made signs, I might add. They have a new chant, too.

    I will say that the police did what they were supposed to do when there’s a 911 call, but Starbucks really messed up here. The 2 men who were in the shop were waiting for a real estate developer; from what I could tell they weren’t doing anything wrong.

    But, just leave it to the SJW crowd to balloon this incident into being totally ridiculous. The Starbucks manager has resigned.

    I was out with a gal pal of mine to dinner when I ordered a drink from the waitress, and added; “oh, and bring another for my gal pal if you would, please.” She immediately glared at my friend and snapped, “are you gonna let him get away with calling you that?!” We both looked at each other with surprise and then I asked her; “Could you just bring us our drinks please? We get preached to on SUNDAYS.” “Oh REALLY, asked the schrew, well that’s what’s called a MICRO-AGGRESSION”, she blurted out as she stomped off to get our drinks.

    Later, as we were headed toward exit, she came huffing from behind and babbled “exCUSE me, but it’s standard practice to leave a minimum 15% gratuity.” To which I beamed with a shit eating grin on my face; “That’s what’s called a MICRO_GRATUITY, keep the change, you’re worth every penny of it, Girlie-gal.”
