Christian group offended by Starbucks logo

No matter what you do, you're going to offend someone. A Christian group based in USA San Diego have officially lost their marbles by being offended by a new Starbucks logo, which they say:

"looks like a naked woman with her legs spread like a prostitute"

I would say these particular nut-bags have quite a filthy imagination if they think the 16th century Norse woodcut of a two-tailed mermaid logo resembles a naked prostitute in action.

If you think that wasn't insane enough, know that they are also calling for a national boycott of the popular franchise. Good luck with that.

If I was drunk and saw that revised branding for the first time I would probably have an immature chuckle. But the idea of paying money for scaly legs like that is what offends me.

Come to think of it, the christian cross looks suspiciously like a "t" as in "t" for testicles or tits...

My hospital has a starbucks which I drink at most mornings, I'm going to punch the barista tomorrow.

Anders' and Jake's comments are cracking me up! ha!

This is hilarious, Mikey! Little do most Christians know, but the lineage of the One they call their savior goes all the way back to ... you guessed it--a PROSTITUTE, whose name was Tamar.

Matthew 1:3
Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar, Perez the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Aram,

Genesis 38

13Then it was told Tamar, Listen, your father-in-law is going up to Timnath to shear his sheep.

14So she put off her widow's garments and covered herself with a veil, wrapped herself up [in disguise], and sat in the entrance of Enaim, which is by the road to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown and she was not given to him as his wife.

15When Judah saw her, he thought she was a harlot or devoted prostitute [under a vow to her goddess], for she had covered her face [as such women did].

16He turned to her by the road and said, Come, let me have intercourse with you; for he did not know that she was his daughter-in-law. And she said, What will you give me that you may have intercourse with me?

17He answered, I will send you a kid from the flock. And she said, Will you give me a pledge (deposit) until you send it?

18And he said, What pledge shall I give you? She said, Your signet [seal], your [signet] cord, and your staff that is in your hand. And he gave them to her and came in to her, and she became pregnant by him

She`s a bit cosmetically challenged so I presume she would be fairly inexpensive?

Of course christians have no problem with Long Dong Donkey brew or the favorite among priest’s, Little Boy Brew. If I were a christian I think I’d be more concerned with important issues like my 14 year old wife’s slumber party and maintaining a fresh supply of jesus blood.

Jesus's name is always capitalized, as in "Jesus" loves us, and as to why, i cannot fathom these days as His name is always spoken in disgust and vane more and more it seems!

Be careful what you say, Hell is a very real place and it would seem that some of you are on your way there... Jesus won't tolerate that kind of blasphemy and you will be judged for it. On the other hand, if you repent and go to Him in shame, He'll accept you and you will end up in Heaven!

So I assume by your inferrence that "hell is a very real place" that you have died, been personally judged by jesus and have gone to hell, were resurected and find yourself back here on earth for the sole purpose of recruiting the gullible masses into misguided and pointless assertions about the apparently intrinsic nature of the universe.

If this is not the case and you are just pushing your stupid religion with your stupid words, "Jesus won't tolerate that kind of blasphemy and you will be judged for it". Get over yourself mate, put down your bible and pick up something that actually attemts to understand the nature of the universe without using a magical character waving around their magic wand to create light and perfectly crafted bananas... something from Stephen Hawkings, Carl Sagan or Jacob Bronowski.
