Apple logo ‘anti-Christian': Russian Orthodox activists
Posted by Mr DoctorE on October 11, 2012
Apple’s prices may be a sin, but is its logo anti-Christian?
A group of Christians in Russia says the ubiquitous bitten apple is too symbolic of the idea of original sin and should be replaced with the symbol of Jesus Christ.
And they may have the law on their side.
Technology website xbitlabs.com says Apple “may run into problems” if Russian parliament passes a set of laws designed to protect citizens’ religious and spiritual values from “blasphemy and insult.”
Apple’s apple references the forbidden fruit eaten by Adam and Eve – a symbol generally considered anti-Christian, say Orthodox Christian activists described by the website as “ultra-radical.”
The Russian Orthodox Church was also a driving force behind the prosecution of three members of the band Pussy Riot, who were convicted in August of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” for staging a profane political protest in a Moscow cathedral.
Interfax news agency, in an article cited by X-bit, reports that some faithful, including priests, have been changing the logo on their Apple devices to a cross.
I wish Je$u$ was real and would rapture these people away from earth :)
