Overreacting people are often Christians, but not all Christians are overreacting people.

People going on killing sprees often play GTA and similar games, but not all GTA-players go on killing sprees.

Heh, I think it's funny when people call for a boycott of a company they aren't even patrons of.

Total effect: null.

Really? The logo?

I'm offended by offended Christians' offense and I'm boycotting them.

Hi all

This won't apply to most of you. Lately we've been having issues with folks going out of control posting boobies pictures in boob-related threads. At some point these reach a critical mass and become not safe for work. 1-2 bikini pics probably is ok, 100 is not. Somewhere along the way the line gets crossed, we don't know what the quantitative number is.

In an effort to permanently remove instigators from our community, the moderators have been instructed to be particularly harsh on anyone perceived to be posting boobs pics to cause trouble.

This is undoubtably going to catch some folks who innocently wandered in and wanted some fun. Sorry we have to do this, some folks got carried away, and this is why we can't have nice things.

I would recommend that folks who normally participate in this kind of thing should dial it back a bit for the time being

Sorry for the trouble. To the 99.99% of you that this doesn't apply to, carry on

/starbucks logo NSFW!!!

I for one am glad the fundies are upset.

Suck it fundies.
 
2008-05-15 06:01:41 PM  
I would support just about any excuse to punish Starbucks.

Here's a better question: what DOESN'T piss off the Christians?

What's the word for when you hate both parties involved in a dispute?
 
2008-05-15 06:02:16 PM  
If somebody does something stupid and it causes you to smear a much larger group that you don't like, you just might be a Farker.
 
2008-05-15 06:02:24 PM  
Also, the article has voting goodness. This should end well...
 
2008-05-15 06:02:30 PM  
For such pious souls who know no wrong, they seem to know a lot about that which they rail against.
 
2008-05-15 06:02:30 PM  
Isn't that the original Starbucks logo, from the days before they became a gigantic corporate monolith?
 
2008-05-15 06:02:59 PM  
can we roll with this one:

if you're standing at a urinal next to another man and "it moves a little," you jut might be a Christian.

There are fundamentalist Christians who think their religion is under constant attack because some people out there aren't Christians. Yet.

This. Also, I'm offended at Starbucks, but not for the logo, but for the coffee.

justinthebull: Isn't that the original Starbucks logo, from the days before they became a gigantic corporate monolith?

Look again: This new logo has removed/covered the nipples from the previous 1971 logo...
 
2008-05-15 06:04:59 PM  
Shouldn't my fellow Christians be more concerned about global warming? Poverty? Injustice?

There's nothing wrong with that pic.

Other than the saggy boobs.

FTFA...
A Christian group out of San Diego has found grounds for outrage over the new retro-style logo for Starbucks Coffee.

/Futurama "Oh, I see what you did there" image
 
2008-05-15 06:05:17 PM  
Damn it! Christians like this always give Christians like me bad names. Why can't they just leave it up to God? Let God sort everyone out when they die.
I'm so sick of this crap. Stop being so freaking judgemental on everything!

//rant off
 
2008-05-15 06:05:19 PM  
The heat sleeve covers up the logo anyway. Some people don't have enough important things to worry about! Geez'ol'Pete!

"It's extremely poor taste, and the company might as well call themselves Slutbucks."

Methinks Starbucks isn't the one with the dirty mind.

OMG!
 
2008-05-15 06:05:34 PM  
Would not hit it.
 
2008-05-15 06:05:45 PM  
Well, duh.
Everyone knows that mermaids only have one tail.
The two-tailed logo obviously is a blatant endorsement of evolution, an unforgivable affront to my Intelligent Design beliefs.
 
2008-05-15 06:05:48 PM  
Also, FTFA: The Resistance says the new image "has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute,"

[Creative partner Terry Heckler] poured [sic] over old marine books until he came up with a logo based on an old sixteenth-century Norse woodcut: a two-tailed mermaid, or siren, encircled by the store's original name."


So basically, douchebags of the Christian persuasion is getting their panties in a knot over two fishtails? THAT seems smutty to them? I hope these inquisitorial prudes never see my Firefox history!

If you have at least two depictions of Jesus in your Home, and have all ten Commandments also displayed in your house, YOOOOOUMIGHT be a Christian.

/How was that?

Nah, just a nut who happens to be a Christian as well.

You people have no clue what it's like working as a Starbucks logo. You biatch about how unwholsome it looks and you whine about how ANYONE could do the job. You are all idiots. Most of the people that walk through the door are washouts and can't hack it. I'd love to see some of you dopes try to do the job for six months. You'd walk out because you can't keep up.
 
2008-05-15 06:06:51 PM  
Damn. It looks like I'm going to have to start drinking Starbucks.
 
2008-05-15 06:07:14 PM

A polite word for "retard."

Isn't Starbuck another name for Satan?

Top Ten Signs You're a Fundamentalist/Extremist/Crazy Christian*
10 - You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.

9 - You feel insulted and "dehumanized" when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

8 - You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.

7 - Your face turns purple when you hear of the "atrocities" attributed to Allah, but you don't even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in "Exodus" and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in "Joshua" including women, children, and trees!

6 - You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

5 - You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.

4 - You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs -- though excluding those in all rival sects - will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most "tolerant" and "loving."


3 - While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in "tongues" may be all the evidence you need to "prove" Christianity.

2 - You define 0.01% as a "high success rate" when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

1 - You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history - but still call yourself a Christian.

*Not all Christians are insane.

Stuff like this is why I haven't stepped foot inside a church since 1995.
