Restaurants Have Decided to Leave God Out of "God Bless
Summary of the eRumor It is said that in
September of 2002, a customer of Golden Corral in Tyler, Texas
noticed that the windows of the restaurant, which were painted with
a patriotic theme, also had the phrase "Bless America"
with "God" left out. The customer called the
restaurant, spoke with the manager, and was told that
"God" was omitted because some people might be offended by
it. The customer complained and was allegedly told that the
manager was only doing what the corporation required.
The sign incident did take place, but
Golden Corral says it did not reflect corporate policy and was the
decision of the sign-painter, not the restaurant. They also
deny that the employee the customer spoke with on the phone was the
manager and in any case, that person was not representing corporate
policy. A statement from Golden Corral says the window now
displays "God Bless America" and that not only would it be
a violation of company standards to omit God from such a phrase, but
that "God is a part of who we are as a company and we give
thanks to Him for everything.' Golden Corral is known as
a company that reflects strong religious beliefs. It's motto
is "Profiting by the Grace of God."
