You may have caught the Sam Adams ad that ran on the 4th of July. You probably didn’t think twice about it, but the ad didn’t sit well with many devout Christians.

The ad recites a part of Declaration of Independence but omits any reference to God.

In the Ad:

“All men are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

The correct text is:

“…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.” 


Many that caught the change took to the Sam Adams' Facebook page with their disapproval. A spokesperson for the Boston Beer Company defended the ad mentioning there are regulations in place stating that no references to religion are permitted in beer advertising or marketing.

In other news…It is a beer ad…Relax!!!!!!!!!
