Christian group to boycott... "Slutbucks"...

Seeing as I am short on time due to exams (last tomorrow!!!) and haven't talked about Starbucks for a while I thought I would copy and paste this press release from U.S. - based Christian group that call themselves "The Resistance".
Their little rant is in relation to the recent reintroduction of the old Starbucks logo on merchandise.

Starbucks has recently introduced a new version of their logo which features a topless mermaid with her legs spread, which has caused outrage from a nation wide Christian media watchdog organization. The Resistance, with has over 3000 members nationwide, is boycotting Starbucks across the country saying their new logo is inappropriate.

The Starbucks logo has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute, explains Mark Dice, founder of the group (Christian Watchdog). Need I say more? It's extremely poor taste, and the company might as well call themselves, Slutbucks.

Do mermaids even have legs? These guys have too much time on their hands.
