Church claims Pepsi promotes gay lifestyle
ABC Action News ^ | 09/11/2009 | FloridaGuy81

Posted on 09/11/2009 11:04:13 AM PDT by floridaguy81

A local church switched from Pepsi products to Coca-Cola, but it's not because they don't like the taste of the product.

The Bell Shoals Baptist church in Brandon got rid of the products as part of the American Family Association's boycott.

Pretty much any hip/trendy/popular company like Pepsi, various clothing lines, etc. all popularize the gay lifestyle. Certainly they popularize a liberal lifestyle. How many incredibly pathetic advertisements for various things have you had to sit through in a movie theater before a movie, where you look over at your wife/husband and simply shake your head at what you’re looking at?

"Kemple says Pepsi has made more than $3 million in contributions toward organizations that advocate homosexuality, like the Human Rights Campaign and the Parents and Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays."

Fair enough.

"The group also claims Pepsi's commercials support a gay lifestyle."

Uh, how's that again?

Oh well. This makes more sense than when half of FR was going to boycott because they were convinced the new Pepsi logo was based on Obama's campaign roundel.

I personally think obsessively researching the causes different companies support and altering one's consumer habits accordingly is a recipe for insanity.

I am addicted to Pepsi.

Even though it’s logo now looks like some sort of Obama symbol.

Please help me!

Fresca is a Coca-Cola product. The Mexican version is made with sugar instead of artificial sweetener, and tastes great. The one I really miss is Canada Dry Wink.

...so they have that going for them.

You'd be surprised how many good off-brand soda there are. The Wal-Mart stuff is the worst, but I recall Stop and Shop's private label as being pretty decent. If you haven't tried RC, you should (though I do think that Coke and Pepsi both taste better. Nothing goes with hot-sauce laden chicken like RC.) I wanted to like Jolt, I really did, but it just doesn't taste very good.

You can also try boutique or local brands. In New Haven, CT, for instance, Foxon Park is the soda of choice. Actually, if you want to cut down on funding the bad guys, buy local mom 'n pop stuff (except for that stuff made by blow hard bad guys of the "Annies" variety.)

Very specific: ben & jerry’s “hubby hubby”.
Very very specific regarding pepsi: http://www.pinknews.co.uk/news/articles/2005-10966.html (article describing pepsi add where 2 men kiss).
Regarding liberal tendencies, I couldn’t describe the plethora in any way that would make them recognizable, though one in particular comes to mind. I saw an ad for ‘something’, I don’t remember what it was, but this guy and this girl met for the first time, burst into some family’s house and had sex.

Poopsie is also a big supporter of Obozo. See how they changed their logo. No Pepsi in my house.

Well, Pepsi does support the homosexual agenda, so what’s the problem?

Years ago, so was I - remember it all to well. I just stopped buying it - started drinking ginger ale until no need for soda any longer. Don’t think about missing it but gaining something. The ‘O’ symbol comes from his friend who is in high places at Pepsi.

My dislike for Pepsi as a company started when their new President ( an Indian woman IIRC ) made anti Iraq war comments.

I do sneak in the occasional Mountain Dew however :-D

None here, either — drink of choice in my house is tap water, with tap-water ice.

I have tried RC cola before and found it to be too sweet for me.

I am a huge fan of Barq’s Rootbeer though.

I think the main reason that I am addicted to Pepsi is because I do not drink coffee, so this is my source of caffeine. I also like “the fizzy”.

I am scared to death of the high fructose corn syrup. I already have fatty liver condition. I’m pretty worried about this addiction. I have been able to kick some nasty addictions in my life, such as cigarettes, but I cannot stop soft drinks.

I tried ginger ale, but it just isn’t for me.

After Pepsi, my favorite things to drink are milk, water, and freshly squeezed orange juice from red navel oranges.

What's wrong with having a gay old time? And our law enforcement professionals ensure it is wholesome.

Good. I’m doing the same thing. Besides, Pepsi tastes like Coke that had been shop-vacced off the floor of a locker room.

“...altering one’s consumer habits accordingly is a recipe for insanity.”

Thank you for inserting some common sense, Dan Middleton. I can’t keep up with who does what or who supports this or that cause. I honestly wonder how effective some of these boycott campaigns are. For me, I buy what works and what I like. If I want to help an organization, I donate my money or my time. If I really want to change the world, then a good place to start is with my friends and family. A boycott is easy - taking the time to share with another human can be difficult and uncomfortable. I do understand we are in a culture war. But, we are not going to win with some knockout punch. We are going to win when we convince those around us in the rightness of our cause - 1 person at a time.-—JM

Try Pepsi Throwback (No HFCS) or Mexican versions of Coke and Pepsi.

Mine is water and fresh squeezed OJ and grapefruit, also! Ginger Ale w/ice, thankfully, weaned me off of Pepsi for good. As I drank Pepsi, I told myself that I’m drinking poison! It had nothing to do w/the company and did it long before BO came on the scene - it had to do w/health.

I totally understand, sometimes I feel like I am drinking poison too, it’s like I can taste the chemicals in the drink very clearly. I also love ruby red grapefruit/ juice too.

I LOVE Pepsi, but mostly I drink Waist Watchers, a diet drink. It’s not bad and comes in several good flavors.

I like diet snapple. I drink a lot of that plus the Waist Watcher ginger ale, orange, cream, or grape. Yum.

I feel for you, I even kept a 12 pack of cans in my car so if I went someplace and they didn't have Pepsi, I brought my own...Cannot stand anything diet as it gives me an aftertaste, one son and wife drink Coke...yuk, the daughter and her hubby drink Diet Pepsi, yuk..

You have to find a substitute and wean your self off, its the only way :O( I found I like flavored Snapple tea's. Also just flavored snapple water. I am down to 2 cans of Pepsi a day and heading for one a day...

OMG when I had to take cans back to the store, I'd be there for 1/2 hours dumping cans in the machine...(We are a pathetic bunch aren't we)

Brewed ice tea is also a good substitute, but you my poor fella/or gal have to find your own substitute......good luck.
