In God we trust, Pepsi

Posted Wed March 23, 2011 12:00 pm, by Rhonda E. written to Pepsi-Cola

Write a Letter to this Company  |  Rate this Company


We are in a debate on your can that has the Pledge on it. I love Pepsi products but it is being said that you left out the part about God. I am wondering if this is true. They are saying you left this out because you are afraid of offending someone... well what about offending the Christians? If we don't have God then what do we have? We have nothing with out God. He is the creator of all things living. If you can not put God on your can then I refuse to buy any of your product and many other Christians feel the same way. As a Pepsi drinker I am just wondering if all this is true because I can not support anything that does not support our Lord and Savior!

I totally agree, I use to drink pepsi but now I will not touch a pepsi
product. I love my God and if you are afraid you are going to offend
others for putting it on tere, well you offend me as a customer for
taking God away. I can not support anything that does not support our
Lord and Savior!

This has already been addressed.

1) It was DOCTOR PEPPER not Pepsi

2) They discontinued the cans in February 2002.




Are you therefore demanding that Pepsi invent time travel to go back
to 2001 to stop DR PEPPER from making this can?

Pepsi leaving out "under God" just makes me WANT to buy their product.
It's a constant struggle to try to prevent this country becoming a
theocracy.

Did you know that "Under God" was not originally part of The Pledge of
Allegiance? "Under God" was added in the 1950's

Seriously, are ya'll so insecure about your religion that you have to
threaten to not buy a product because they leave it off?

And offending Christians? My experience has been that Christians have
absolutely no problem with offending people of other/no religion.. So
you can dish it out but you can't take it?

Oh, but that's not the worst of it. See, Dr, Pepper (not Pepsi) put
out their devil can with only three words from the pledge on it: "One
nation, indivisible." Which means not only did they leave God off the
can, they also left off a whole bunch of other perfectly good words
from the Pledge as well, including but not limited to: Pledge,
Allegiance, United States of America, Republic, Stands, Liberty,
Justice and All. What kind of un-American heathens do they have
running Dr. Pepper? They don't even believe in the United States of
America, or liberty, or justice, or even STANDING?

It's just about time that the Dr. Pepper company be forced out of the
country under the U DONT LIKE IT THAN LEEVE act of 2002. I hope the
Dr. Pepper management responsible for this moral atrocity likes it
better in Soviet Russia, where they will be forced to go. Good
riddance. We'll drink our Mr. Pibb and like it, just like the founders
envisioned.

I don't want anything referring to god on any product I buy from a
supermarket. If Pepsi puts anything about god on their cans, then I'M
going to boycott them.

Thankfully, I'll win on this one as Pepsi isn't about to put any
religious drivel on their products.

by texasgurl Posted Thu March 24, 2011 @ 12:44 PM

My only issue with this whole thing (if it were even true) would be
that they intentionally left out part of the Pledge of Allegiance for
what ever reason. There is a reason that God is mentioned in the
Pledge and it doesn't matter if you like it or agree with the reason,
it is still there. I was always taught that the Pledge of Allegiance
is about being an American, not about being Christian. Ofcourse some
people see that as one in the same which is perhaps where the
confusion comes from.

FALSE RUMOR ALERT: PATRIOTIC CANS: You may have received an erroneous
message about a "patriotic can" that Pepsi allegedly produced with an
edited version of America’s Pledge of Allegiance. The truth is, Pepsi
never produced such a can. In fact, this is a hoax that has been
circulating on the Internet for more than nine years. A patriotic
package used in 2001 by Dr Pepper (which is not a part of PepsiCo) was
inappropriately linked to Pepsi. Thanks for giving us the chance to
clarify the situation and please feel free to share this message with
anyone else who may have received the erroneous email. Details of the
hoax can be found at

He may be your lord and saviour, but he's certainly not mine. You are
free to buy or not buy any products you wish. It's statements like
this that just turn people off religion.

I wish this rumor would just die. Year after year, it creeps back.

I am glad I am secure in my own faith that I do not bother with such
things. I don't care what other people think about my religion. I am
happy practicing my faith and leaving everyone else alone about it.

This is completely false.

Read the above article for the details.

Furthermore, I am wondering why you are saying it is a "Christian"
issue. The god that you worship is the same god for numerous
religions.

What exactly does your god have to do with soda? Personally I find it
offensive to see god splattered across things (t-shirts, bulletin
boards, soda cans, bags, towels, vehicles, etc) that have absolutely
nothing to do with one's internal, private beliefs or hopes. My truck
doesn't know god and neither does my soda and I prefer it to remain
that way.
