At least they gave him a reason for being fired.

Firing is pretty harsh, it's fairly obvious that wasn't the real reason.

However if i was a massive company i wouldn't want my employees using the competition's product...even if it was better (which pepsi ISN'T!!).

I cant believe they would go as far as giving someone the boot for drinking pepsi. Just because you work there doesnt mean you have to like Coke.

well in the article it said he was in the union and a leader in it. that's probably why he was fired. they probably know they could be sued for firing him for a reason like that.

its kind of funny though. poor guy

You just have to have faith and believe mindlessly with no evidence whatsoever that this relates to anything in any way shape form or idea

Further evidence:

I loved life
one day
until Jesus came down
He told me to interface with him
through his instrument panel
I plugged in
He told me I was going to die
I didn't believe him
He unveiled a tire iron
from his long white robe
and beat my face in
He said, believe in Jesus
or he will strike you down
with his divine tire iron

He rolled me over
took my wallet
and ascended into the golden sky.

Rephrase: You wanted proof that there is no god or that there is a god?

Yeah.. may be there are other reasons behind the incedent. But don't think that this is a great injustice or crime compared with other state crimes around us. They don't like him (for what ever the reason), they had the ability, they did it.

Hey guys, stop trying tp prove if there is Gog or if He doesn't exist. The answer is one:Either you believe, either not. In fact, you will only believe to Him when you live his wish ( they way He wants us to live ), not with arguments.

ALWAYS!

See what can happen if your thread title only links to the content metaphorically? Half the replies here aren't even related to that Coke guy or whatever. :rolleyes: :D :mad: :p

Ok.
I man who doesn't believe to God writes the word "God" as "god", because he considers that word as all common words.

That title tells me that you were arguing with someone and that guy wanted a proof which you finally found. How can this title be taken metaphorically? I meen... the meening is so obvious ( especially with your tone and that Past tense )

For a metaphoricall meening you could use so many appropriate sentences and you choosed the best...What else can i say?

For AProg:
I'm sure the philosophical underpinnings of the topic's title implied that a charitable, omniscient god would strike down the evil Coca-Cola corporation for firing an employee for defending his labor rights. Since Yahweh, Jesus, Allah, Shiva, Zeus, or Odinn did not intervene, we can only assume that (A) the gods are bad beings or (B) the gods do not exist at all.

For everyone else:
Coca-Cola just gave the lamest excuse ever for firing an employee, and it could hardly be considered legitimate. The real reason, as mentioned in the article, is clear: Coca-Cola is union busting. The union should continue their struggle against Coca-Cola to get this man rehired. Coca-Cola deserves any bad press coming their way.

If there was a God, He suffered a heart attack from severe spelling abuse and is in a better place now :p

As I agree that the title of this thread is quite unrelated to the topic at hand... that is beyond the scope of this thread.

With any luck he'll find a better job than driving trucks for 12 years.

I think that i made my self clear enough with my first post. So, whatever you want believe, whatever you want assume. I don't even want to try explain you about the topic. Further comments can only do harm.

Further comments can only do harm. I want to rub little chinese men all over my body. Chinese men are awesome, because I saw it in a south park episode once. I like south park, mmm, but I really like chinese men, yes, this is good. I can't wait until I have to pee so I have an excuse to wash my hands yes oh yes this is awesome shampoo.

I think your reading way too much into the title.

Coke is well known for its anti union activities. Mostly in third world countries. A sacking is nothing to some of the tactics they have been accused of.

I am suprised that they are taking on the teamsters...........

Coke was right.

If an employee is wearing a Coke uniform and drinking a Pepsi where ppl can see him then it looks bad for Coke.

And if they had union problems with him then that is just all the more reason to fire him.

Coke should just realize that the only good drink they make is Vanilla Coke and get over it.

I think dude should've just ripped the label off of his Pepsi bottle.
