The prominent leader of a 30 million-strong Muslim group has called for a boycott of global coffee brand Starbucks because of its support for gay marriage.
Anwar Abbas of Muhammadiyah, the second-largest Islamic group in Indonesia, says the brand’s pro-gay stance is ruining southeast Asia’s “religious and cultured” core.

Indonesia is a very traditional Muslim country and so homophobia is a big problem and so this is not surprising. However considering how much Muslims push for political change in the western world that last line was so hypocritical I just had to share.
