Subject: New Pepsi Can Pepsi has a new patriotic can coming out with pictures of the Empire State Bldg. and the Pledge of Allegiance on them. But Pepsi forgot two little words on the pledge, "Under God." Pepsi said they did not want to offend anyone. If this is true then we do not want to offend anyone at the Pepsi corporate office. If we do not buy any Pepsi product then they will not receive any of our monies. Our money after all does have the words "Under God" on it. Please pass this word to everyone you know. Tell your Sunday School class tomorrow and tell your Pastors so that they can tell the whole congregation. Christians stand up and let your voices be heard. We want the words "under God" to be read by every person who buys a can.

No one should buy Pepsi for one reason only.

It is 35% sugar and makes you fat.

What ever happened to "The Choice of a New Generation". I guess that generation grew up and cannot afford to buy the good stuff and buys the cheap store brand knock off "Peepsey". God takes an interest in what food people eat, in which hole they stick their wee willy winkers and of COURSE what is written on their carbonated sugar beverages. God is truly truly AWESOME in every sense of the word.

First line.

Good! I dislike Pepsi but I applaud them for upholding the separation of church and cola.

I don't believe in God, but if you look, "In God We Trust" is on our money.(U.S. money) I am certainly not planning on boycotting money anytime soon or raising a fuss over one word.

Also Pepsi is corporate sponsor of globalist groups. I try to avoid those. Coca-cola is worse (especially with the water fiasco) but Pepsi is still pretty bad.

Personally, I don't think they have to put 'under god' in and I'm very religious. They are marketing to a general public and not everybody believes in god, respectivally. People will get offended either way; if you leave it in or take it out. The pledge is not the bible; there are no words of God actually spoken. It was created by america's masonic founding fathers who were abided by oath to put that line in there (even though they then went on to break most of Anderson's constitution but w/e that's a different story) So I think it's completly understandable that that was the decision they made...even if I do not support Pepsi in any way.

We all know how the pledge of allegiance goes. This just means that the string pullers at this corporation don't believe in God. Big surprise, right? If we look at the 'polls' of percentages on who believes in God and who doesn't, it appears to me that their excuse, "we didn't want to offend anyone", is contradictory. A 2008 gallup poll shows us that 78% of Americans believe in God, and 15% don't believe in "God" but believe in a higher power. Removing the God line is offensive to 78% of Americans... so...

Who exactly is this company afraid to offend? Welcome to the idiocracy of corporations and their godless, greedy owners.

Good find on the truth, OP. Snopes isn't too bad, sometimes lol


Irregardless, if they DID do something like this, that's perfectly in their right to do so, AND fits into the original pledge.

After all, the "Under God" part was only added after the whole cold war issue began, and we had to stand against those godless Commies.

Until that time, there was no mention of God in the Pledge.

Ever since Michael Jackson burned all his hair off filming a Pepsi commercial, I haven't drank it because I realized it was run by the dark one himself.

'Under God' does not belong in the Pledge of Allegiance anyway.

The two words were officially added by President Eisenhower in 1954, and were never intended to be a part of the original Pledge as it was written.

Personally, I think they should put a giant picture of cthulhu on the can. Maybe even Cthulu fighting zeus, or thor.

They won't put 'Under God' on a can that has 6 pentagrams on it... Seriously check out the can from 2001.

God and pentagrams don't mix

See, no matter what people will get offended. Not trying to start anything
You cannot please everyone at once. Way too many variables out there.

1892 = "I pledge allegiance to my flag and the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

1892-1923 = "I pledge allegiance to my flag and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

1923 - 1924 = "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

1924 - 1954 = "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands; one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

1954 - Present = "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

en.wikipedia.org...

I do not like to see the words "under God" as being MANDATORY! I STRONGLY encourage anyone who chooses to say "Under God" to go ahead and do so, but I myself do not say them for I cannot make a pledge to something that I do not think is real. Neither would I want to see a Jehovah Witness forced to salute the flag or say the pledge it if it goes against their religious beliefs.

Some people choose to say "under Law". I just skip the part about god and it is fine with me. I always thought that was the beauty of our country, everyone has a choice to decide for themselves what is right for them. We are the best country in the world because of our variety of religions and our variety of our beliefs. Because we can come together many stars as one standard, one banner. 50 differences, fighting for one cause.

I googled that.. didn't find anything.. Got a link to the pepsi can info?

to the Op:

yeah well it was added in 54.. so what.. it's what we know of today as part of the pledge and therefore I say it stands and stinks Pepsi didn't put it on the can.

Are any of you actually that old where you actually remember the pledge without the two words added in so that it could irk you that much ??? I don't think so - even the U.S. Constitution refers to God so get over it.

Can't we just ban the pledge. Jeez talk about brainwashing me when I was in school. I didn't even know what i was saying, but it was a ritual I said daily, like a zombie.
