In PEPSI We Trust...


i just received this chain email -- after i stopped gasping for air, i thought of sharing this lunacy with fellow readers. well, luckily, i don't have to ponder on this dilemma. i finally kicked my sugar laden soda habit for good!!!


ok, now that you have received this warning, please do your patriotic duty and forward this email to everyone you know!



Subject: DON'T BUY PEPSI IN THE NEW CAN!


Don't buy Pepsi in the new can. Pepsi has a new "patriotic" can coming out with pictures of the Empire State Building, 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.

Below is when "under god" was placed in the Pledge of Allegiance. It was not until our country became fearful of communism and McCarthyism took hold and the red scare.

The words "under God" are inserted into the Pledge. The legislation is supported by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, "fearing an atomic war between the U.S. and the Soviet Union," who signs the bill. President Eisenhower says: "In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America's heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country's most powerful resource in peace and war."
