Does Starbucks really need to be the center of this year's war on Christmas?

From Las Vegas-

With Halloween gone and Thanksgiving on its way, the first salvo in what some claim to be America's annual war on Christmas is coming from an unexpected direction.

The Pacific Northwest, actually, where Starbucks is making some Christmas lovers wonder not only WWJD (what would Jesus drink?) but, more importantly, from what sort of cup would he drink it?

The flashpoint: The coffee retailer's replacement of its usual holiday-themed cups with this year's model, which is totally bereft of snowflakes and other Christmastime iconography and represents the season via nothing more than the company's green logo set against a deep red field. (See a review of the past several years' worth of Starbucks cups here.

Already, some Christians are calling the stark, unicolored cups an example of political correctness run amok and part of what they consider to be a continuing war on Christmas (which, like Christmas shopping season, seems to be arriving earlier and earlier each year).
