A one-minute Coca-Cola commercial featuring a multilingual rendition of the patriotic song "America the Beautiful" sparked a firestorm of criticism about whether singing the song in different languages was the right thing to do.
Critics have been flocking to Coca-Cola's Facebook page and accuse the company of being unpatriotic, mercenary, and a proponent of immigration reform and one world government.

Whoever is in charge of your marketing program needs [to be] fired, immediately!!!" wrote Tony Tanner. more >>

WBC claimed it was speaking out against Cosby, 76, who is scheduled to perform in Kansas City, Mo., on Feb. 1 as part of his "Far from Finished" tour, because he used "fame, fortune and influence" to promote "his own form of righteousness" and fit his "own humanistic notions."
"He has taken on the mantle of an 'activist' and instructed others to obtain an education, work hard, and practice some very basic morality – but he has not instructed them to obey God's commandments," it wrote in a statement. more >>
