How do advertisers spell trouble? G-O-D

Because he signed the Declaration of Independence. He believed there was a better way to live. All men are created equal. They are endowed with certain unalienable rights: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Which smoothly drops a key phrase from the Declaration: they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights … On the one hand, its just a beer ad and it used up its whole 30 seconds.On the other hand, why leave out some of the best-known words in American history? The company explained its all about the Beer Code. No kidding: Theres a national Beer Institute that has an Advertising and Marketing Code. Right after, and Im not making this up, Beer advertising and marketing materialsshould not contain graphic nudity, you will find: Beer advertising and marketing materials should not employ religion or religious themes. Theres no mention of why its OK to use the Declaration itself, perhaps the most sacred text in the national civic religion, to sell suds. Sam Adams himself wrote a lot about God.
