As I watched a college football game, there was a Dr. Pepper commercial that came on. I was reminded of their ordeal a couple of months ago when they left “under God” of the Pledge off their patriotic cans. Among their various excuses, the one that stuck with me is that they didn’t want to offend anyone.
It’s amazing that when precautions are made not to offend someone no one is ever concerned with offending the people of God. It’s seems those who are on the fringe of societal ethics and morals have the loudest voice and biggest political stick. Those who believe in good and bad along with right and wrong are incessantly required to compromise those standards to accept what is not. It’s all a move to neuter the faith. After all, what is the faith without the morals and ethics which define it? It is then no different than the ways of the world.
Whoever thought that we’d live in a time in America where a company felt more comfortable taking God out of the Pledge rather than leaving Him in? There’s a meticulous effort to remove God from this nation and as our guiding principles. It seems that Dr. Pepper has joined the effort.
