I can think of many reasons not to drink Starbucks coffee. But none of them would be because of their new logo.
The Star-Tribune reported today that Christian wingnut Mark Dice of "The Resistance Manifesto" has issued a press release calling for the boycott of Starbucks because their new logo — a throwback to the logo the company used in the 1970s — "...has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute."
This isn't the first time The Taper has noticed The Resistance Manifesto. Back in January, 2006, we found a video by the group bemoaning the "fact" that Freemasons worship Satan. These conspiracy freaks are also vocal in their hatred for Hollywood celebrities, Mormons, and the Georgia Guidestones.
The new Starbucks logo [above] is a modified version of the company's first logo. The update has removed the nipples from the woman/siren/mermaid/goddess. Ouch!
I assume any woman, prostitute or not, can spread her legs, so "legs spread like a prostitute" probably means the Manifest guys have seen their share of hookers, and maybe are feeling a little remorseful over that, but even yoga practitioners can't do what the Manifestoids say the cup-model is doing. That's because those aren't legs.
What is it about nude bodies that drives so many religious people to the point of insanity?
