Quote# 63170

[In response to the rumor that Pepsi was coming out with a can that had the pledge of allegiance, omitting "under God"]

"the only thing worse than commercial-patriotism is the ridiculous anti-christian band wagon ever moron (even the mormon who owns pepsi apparently) loves to jump on. this is proof that none of the people in charge actually care about us- the christians. the fact that canned pepsi is sold in this country is proof that the govt. doesnt care about any human at all."

[Even better, because the rumor was a hoax]

Gullible isn't in the dictionary.

Uh, that would be commercial suicide for Pepsi... if it were true, which it isn't. And just stop with the fucking persecution complex already you whiny baby.

You live in a comfortable home, with AC, plenty to eat, and all the modern conveniences. You're guaranteed the right to worship whatever crazy notion you've got anytime you want. Your life is so far removed from persecution that you'd probably drop dead of a heart attack if somebody decided to actually bring some real persecution down on you.

Gullibility. The reason why i have money.

Lmao fail. I like how this dope goes into histrionics over something that wasn't even true.

I far prefer RC. As a bonus, if you look closely, you'll see "Atheists Rule" in tiny script on each can.

"Gullible isn't in the dictionary."

*grins* I see what you did there.

Even if this did happen to somehow become reality, how exactly is it oppressing you self-centered douchebags? They aren't adding in a quick, "Oh, and Christians crave cock, lol" in between the pledge lyrics.

this actually happened just over 7 years ago, but it was Dr Pepper, and the can said:

"One Nation...Indivisible"

I was after 9/11, and an attempt at showing unity. You can't print the whole damn pledge on a can, so they chose the most important 3 words to get their point across. People freaked out back then and chain emails were all over the place.

As with all rumors, there is a small grain of truth, but nothing more. But Xians love to feel persecuted, so a grain is all they need. They can just recycle this one over and over for a fresh new feeling of persecution.

Uh, I just drank a can of Pepsi. No Pledge of Allegiance on it.

That's impossible! Everybody knows that the "RC" in "RC Cola" stands for "Roman Catholic."

Fundies can't be bothered with silly things like facts! Facts can be used to prove anything that's even remotely true!

6/15/2009 11:17:48 AM


This has been going on for years and no one has ever seen this can.

6/15/2009 11:19:32 AM


oh no, soda, it's as bad genocide....

6/15/2009 11:20:38 AM


Why SHOULD they care about the Christians? All you do is spread hate-filled filth and stupidity.

6/15/2009 1:55:23 PM


I kinda wish that was true, I'd like a can.

6/15/2009 3:40:14 PM


Did you know that there's no wikipedia entry for the word "gullibility"?

Allegory for Jesus

"Waaaaaaaa! They aren't respecting the portion of the Pledge of Allegiance that we Christians added in 50 years ago in order to cram ourselves as far into government as possible! The very portion that was later deemed unconstitutional to force people to recite! We are SO persecuted!"

6/15/2009 4:59:26 PM


Is the can from the past, where that line didn't exist?

6/15/2009 6:47:45 PM


When a christian loses a chance to smear their religion in our faces, it's persecution, but when atheists and others who are oppressed by such arrogance simply ask to be treated equally, they're anti-freedom socialists who want to take over.

Funny how fundie logic works.

THEN DON'T BUY IT, YOU ASSHAT. You take away my Pepsi, and I'll take away your Pork Rinds. >:[

What is with these people.

Like the post from Gebusi stated, whenever a secular company that is trying to reach out to every coustomer it can doesn't mention God or specifically recognize Christian observences, these people get all wound up about it.

And to think, I thought these guys are all aboard about capitalism and gaining the highest profit.

Id be more upset that the pledge was there at all. The pledge was invented by a proto-fascist who espoused an idea he called "military socialism". Less extreme authoritarians i.e. the people in charge at the time liked it as a way to get children, especially immigrant children to blindly admire the government from a young age. Until the 1940s the salute to the flag looked a lot like the Nazi and Soviet salutes.

"Under God" was added in the 1950s by Congress as a statement against "communism". The only thing it changed about the pledge was that instead of it just being a tool to indoctrinate youth into blind admiration for the government they through in religion.

This reminds me of when there was a dollar coin made that had the "In God we Trust" around the edge and Christians were panicing because none of them were observant enough to notice it there.

I heard a rumor that there's a soda pop company that isn't praising Gawd Almighty on every can. No "In God We Trust", no 10 commandments ...AAAARGHHH! Persecution! HITLER! Satan! Armageddon!
It's the end times for sure.
