Haha...thanks for the entertainment. To prevent myself from getting banned by responding to your post...I must say that religion has sure gotten people thinking that the world will end just because Pepsi took out those two words. OH NOES! A SODA WITHOUT THE WORD GOD ON IT?! BLASPHEMY! Burn Pepsi! DIE! DIE!

How is the US taking God out of everything? Over half the nation is Christian and heck, even the President is a devout Christian. Be realistic...seriously...if God was taken out of everything in this nation, it would not fall because of some holy disease or some flood from the heavens or what not, but because everyone would go bezerk over the fact that there is no more God.

If you were poor and only had a few toys which were valuable to you, like you just stated, that would be because you were poor and unfortunate enough not to get anything else, NOT because of some greater being.

That depends on your point of view. If you were Christian, then your religion would be the best. If you were Muslim, then your religion would be the best. Why do you think they've been fighting in Jerusalem for all those thousands of years? Because they think that the other religion is immoral or not a true religion. It's just like the question about right or wrong. There really is no right or wrong if you think about it...it really depends on the side you are on. Get what I mean?

i didn't mean that just because pepsi had taken those words out its goin to casue our nation to collapse. what i ment was its takin god out, not necesarily of everything right now. but if pepsi starts doing it then so will every other company tryin to be patriotic. then it will move to other things like the dollar bill. and our nation will not last forever...if you think that you are more naive than a little school girl.

and my point about the poor comment wasnt anything to do with the fact that someone was poor. it was the idea of cherishing the only few things you have precious to you.

and again i said look at it through our veiw point. meaning through our view point all other religions are bogus! get my point?

lol i can't get the quote to work :P

God won't smite you because you drank a soda without words promoting him! Sheesh...what is the world coming to...
Amen, lol..

But yeah, I agree, this is retarted.. NOT A BIG DEAL!

I'm an Athiest too, and think that religion causes too big of an issue in this world anyway, and definietly is at the moment.
But, if people want to believe in something, no one can stop them.

i honestly don't know what Pepsi should have done.
I guess they couldn't have done it either way without getting trouble from somewhere.

But yeah...
why did this put all this on the can anyway? To try and generate support?

On another side note It doesn't say under what god, and the ones that believe in no gods really dont care (a large majority of them atleast)
