Ford dealership tells non-believers to "sit down and shut up"

The guys and gals over at Kieffe & Sons Ford have had enough of people wanting to remove God from our money and the Pledge of Allegiance, and they're spending valuable advertising dollars to tell Californians all about it. The brash Ford dealer has been running a commercial since February with the main goal of pissing off secularists, and if all goes right, bringing the rest of the car-buying public to the showroom floor.
The main point of the spot is that 86 out of every 100 U.S. citizens are Christians who believe in God, so "believers" should just tell the other 14% to "sit down and shut up". The commercial then goes on to say that if those 14% are offended, then that's too bad because the dealer was asserting its first amendment right. That's great, but then why tell others to "sit down and shut up" when they're simply asserting their first amendment right? The saddest part of the commercial is that it appears to be nothing more than a lame attempt to use religion to get Christians to buy Fords. For the record, Ford corporate can't do anything about the commercials since the dealership is an independent franchise. Hit the jump to read the transcript of the commercial, and try not to break into a holy war in the comments. Thanks for the tip, Joe!

Did you know that there are people in this country who want prayer out of schools, "Under God" out of the Pledge, and "In God We Trust" to be taken off our money?

But did you know that 86% of Americans say they believe in God? Now, since we all know that 86 out of every 100 of us are Christians who believe in God, we at Kieffe & Sons Ford wonder why we don't just tell the other 14% to sit down and shut up. I guess maybe I just offended 14% of the people who are listening to this message. Well, if that is the case, then I say that's tough, this is America folks, it's called free speech. And none of us at Kieffe & Sons Ford are afraid to speak up. Kieffe & Sons Ford on Sierra Highway in Mojave and Rosamond: if we don't see you today, by the grace of God, we'll be here tomorrow.
