I received this message via bulletin here on MySpace today, and felt the need to repeat something I posted a few weeks ago about Snopes.
The message I received is this:
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 products, they will not be offended when they receive our money that has the words
“In God We Trust” written on it.
They took out those special words **Under God.**
if you believe in God, please don’t just let this pass. God sees you every second of the day.
God loves you. You should love Him.
Give Him respect
Take a stand
Be on God’s side
I don’t know how anyone can drink Pepsi. I can’t stand the taste in comparison with Coca-Cola Classic. I don’t support rumors like this, though. I love Dr. Pepper, as it is my only source of hydration most days of my life. They look worse in the entire story. I am never drinking Dr. Pepper again…

Ok, so I can continue drinking my Dr. Pepper… good, because I was already feeling the withdrawal symptoms. There is no merit to the Pepsi thing, and even the Dr. Pepper thing was taken entirely too far.
We must look at the entire picture and read a story before making judgement. I’m sure there were a few hundred people passing this around before it got to me. I am begging you to research stuff like this before you pass it on.
This kind of activity is what could end up costing good American’s a Presidential election, or much worse… the wrong American Idol winner.
