There’s controversy brewing over a Samuel Adams beer commercial that aired on the Fourth of July.

The beer company meant well promoting its patriotic brand on a patriotic holiday by having a bartender quote the Declaration of Independence that Sam Adams himself signed.

But it very deliberately left out the phrase, “by our creator,” which the hosts of  “Fox and Friends” addressed Friday morning.

The beer advertising police, the Beer Institute of Advertising Code, does not allow religion into ads and Samuel Adams said they must adhere to those guidelines, according to a statement obtained by Fox News.

Jesse Watters and Clayton Morris, both filling in as hosts on Fox, said it best:

“When political correctness takes over the beer advertising industry, the terrorists have won,” Watters said.

“It’s weird to think that the beer code ethics guideline, whatever bogus organization that is, has more authority than our Declaration of Independence,” Morris said, adding: “If the beer code comes calling and says, by the way, you put God in your advertising, we’re not having it. Why don’t you pull out the Declaration of Independence and say ‘I have this document here, does this trump yours?’”
