Even in a beer commercial, we have to be subjected to the banning of God from our history. Beer maker Sam Adams decided the word God was too controversial to repeat in the recitation of the Declaration of Independence.
The beer maker has been running an Independence Day ad for three weeks which shows an actor dressed as a bartender reciting the Declaration of Independence omitting a key phrase which mentions the Creator.
The makers of this beer obviously don’t even know what the words in the Declaration mean or what the Founding Fathers were fighting for.
Our forefathers believed our rights were unalienable because they were endowed by God.
PC now means we have to change historical documents.
This is the actual text of the Declaration:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;
What Sam Adams beer did was change the entire meaning of the sentence.
The beer company founded in 1884 and conceived in 1870, according to their website, was named Samuel Adams because “he was a Boston firebrand, a revolutionary thinker who fought for independence. Most importantly, Samuel Adams, was also a brewer who had inherited a brewing tradition from his father.”
What they don’t seem aware of is that Samuel Adams was also a staunch supporter of religious liberty.
Samuel Adams once said, “Our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty.”
The talking heads at Sam Adams tried to blame beer code for their rewrite of history:
“We adhere to an advertising code, established by the Beer Institute – a beer industry trade organization – that states, ‘Beer advertising and marketing materials should not include religion or religious themes’,” according to a statement provided by a Boston Beer Company spokeswoman. “We agree with that, and we follow these guidelines and approach our marketing with the utmost responsibility.”
Historical documents should not be altered. History should not be rewritten. Books should not be burned. Those are inherently American ideals.
Will there be any place where religious liberty and our history will be protected? Even in a beer commercial, God is too toxic?
The real Sam Adams for whom their beer is named wouldn’t like this ad, maybe the beer company should change their name to Madalyn Murray O’Hair beer which would take in their ideals of the revolutionary thinker with the godlessness they are subtly fostering in America.
Have you tried Smithwicks, Red Hook, or Michelob yet?
