Is The Starbucks Retro Logo Pornographic?

Is The Starbucks Retro Logo Pornographic?

By Robert Paul Reyes

There are so many injustices and horrific crimes in the world for Christians to complain about: Genocide in Third World countries, the Iraq war, the intentional blocking of relief supplies by the military junta to hurricane-devastated Burma.

But a Christian group is all hot and bothered over the Starbucks logo. If they complained about the outrageous prices at Starbucks, they might have my sympathy. I refuse to take out a loan so I can afford a cappuccino at Starbucks.

"Seems that one person's smut is another person's morning latte.

A Christian group based in San Diego found grounds for outrage over the new retro-style logo for Starbucks Coffee.

The Resistance says the new image "has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute," Mark Dice, founder of the group, said in a news release. "Need I say more? It's extremely poor taste, and the company might as well call themselves Slutbucks."

The description of the logo by Dice is more pornographic by far than the actual logo. I'm surprised the owner of an online pornographic site hasn't offered Dice a job writing captions for their photos.

If you want a real pornographic image, just snap a pic anytime Britney Spears gets out of her limo. The Starbucks retro logo doesn't even merit a PG-rating.

The Resistance is calling for a nationwide boycott of Starbucks. I'm so outraged at this nutty group that I'm going to wipe out my life savings and buy a couple of lattes at Starbucks.
