Starting September 1, Coca-Cola will introduce a newly designed can featuring the Islamic crest and star as part of a month long celebration of Ramadan. The design will only appear on cans sold in Muslim countries.
Since 9-11 it seems like the companies and the media have done everything they can to embrace Islam, while at the same time slamming Christianity and Judaism every chance they get.
In the end, this raises an interesting question. Will Coke feature a Christian design with a cross this Christmas, or a Jewish Star of David for Hanukkah ? I think I know the answer to that but we’ll wait and see.
And for anyone that would try to make the argument that Coke already has a Christian design that features Santa and a polar Bear… Santa is not a Christian symbol. He is a secular symbol, like the Easter Bunny, that distracts people from the true celebration of Christmas.
I’m not calling on Coke to use a Cross on their cans. How about just selling COKE instead of targeting the terrorist market.
