Don’t buy Pepsi in the new can. Pepsi has a new “patriotic” can coming out with pictures of the EmpireStateBuilding, and the Pledge of Allegiance on them.
However, Pepsi left out two little words on the pledge,”Under God.”
Pepsi said they didn’t want to offend anyone. In that case, we don’t want to offend anyone at the Pepsi corporate office, either!
So if we don’t buy any Pepsi product, they will not be offended when they don’t receive our money that has the words “In God We Trust” on it.
I hate email forwards, especially when they’re as culturally-humilating as these.
I highly doubt any Pepsi boycott will occur in my household. For one, I married into a “Pepsi family” — and I support not having the “under God” in the pledge. Most people don’t realize that those two words weren’t a part of the pledge until the 1950′s, and were only added in an effort to deter communism [read me].
Separation of church & state — and carbonated beverages, I say!
