Our theist friends haven't enough to do, what with saving souls, attempting to set up a theocracy and putting their things in storage ahead of the rapture, they've found time to become critics of beer commercials:
"Fox News host: 'Not using God to sell beer means the terrorists have won’"
Interestingly, the makers of Sam Adams Beer seem to have pulled all YouTube copies of their July 4th commercial.
Further, the bartender mispronounced, "inalienable," as, "unalienable" - where were the grammar police when you need them?
The Brewers landed in a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation - if they had mentioned old what's-his-name, they'd have been accused of using religion to sell beer, the use of which, many fundamentalist sects forbid. Possibly they should file the experience under, "Sounded like a good idea at the time --"
Unalienable is because beer. So there.
RE: "Hey Arch the video doesn't work..." - I don't know what to tell you, I'm watching it as we speak! Try another browser.
RE: "How does terrorism enter into beer commercials????" - it's Fox News, it doesn't have to make sense.
If I were the brewing company, my next commercial would involve an old, bearded, white guy in a white robe, seated on a cloud, with a smile radiating from his face and a frosty Sam Adams in his hand, with the caption: "God drinks Sam Adams, what's YOUR beer?"
Then Fox would really have something to squawk about!
You mean like this?
Are you saying that was banned? I thought it was damned clever - brings a whole new insight to communion, all they needed was a little dip.
Shame Fox News didn't find that newsworthy --
It wasn't banned per se. Just not selected from a number of contestants to be the commercial shown. What can I say? The internet loves hyperbole.
Still can't access the video?
Should you do so, check out the "red tape" comment by the brainless bimbo in the middle, who is clearly there, only for cheap set decoration.
Luckily, Fox didn't have a problem with this incredible feat of mathematics!
It's Fox news for Thor's sake, they get upset when a Jew says "happy holidays!"
Alert! Alert! All talking heads to battle stations. Evacuate non demagogue personnel. Alert! Alert!
I want to stooge slap the people every time I see them. They bitch about everything that could possibly avoid god, even though Atheists are (at my last checking) the second largest ideology demographic in the country, second only to Catholics. As a marketing rule, you don't alienate people if you can avoid it.
Alas when one digs into that Pew Research poll, that 19 percent are "non religious" which is not the same thing. (Many Xians won't go to church and call themselves "non religious" because to them religion means "going to church." They'll call it a faith or a relationship with god and get peeved if you call them religious.)
Only about 5% would actually fit the definition of an atheist and half of that 5 percent won't use that word to describe themselves because it has such horrific connotations for most people. "I cant be an atheist! They're... assholes!"
