Shoppers in Liverpool got more than they bargained for yesterday when their morning coffee stop was interrupted by a rowdy demonstration from the Mormon Defence League. Around seven demonstrators assembled under tight mall security for over forty minutes.
The MDL, who strongly oppose the consumption of caffeine, were seen heckling customers as they entered a Starbucks outlet in the Liverpool-One Mall, brandishing banners claiming ‘God is the only REAL high’.
Tensions were heightened further when a member of the public holding a cappuccino attempted to mingle with the Mormons, making clever anti-corporation remarks after he mistook the demonstration for a tax avoidance protest.
‘Thankfully nobody was hurt’, said Paul Minchin, head of mall security. ‘There was an extensive cleanup operation, though. A handful of charred coffee beans were thrown at passing shoppers’.
'I refuse to live in a world that accepts sugary stimulants. Never will my children get a 'high' from something grown in Columbia', said an MDL member.
