Dear Gramps,

My husband is always getting ridiculed at work because he doesn’t drink Coca Cola.  They ask why is it that Mormons can’t drink it but they are one of the largest stock holders the company has? What would be a good reply to their comments? Does the Church have affiliation with the Coca Cola company?





Dear Gail,

What a privilege it is to be ridiculed for adhering to a matter of principle! Each such encounter presents a wonderful opportunity to share the gospel with others.

Concerning the Church’s association with the Coca Cola company, such allegations are simply ridiculous! It is not necessary for us to show evidence that they are not true. Put the burden of proof on the backs of the detractors, and ask those who make such false allegations to show any evidence that they are true.
