I'm not seeing a problem here. Beastie is not a religious icon, not is it intended to be one. FreeBSD has no connection (afaik) with any religion. What we do have is a well recognised and accepted logo which has been around for a long time. Changing it because a couple of people have misinterpreted it strikes me as foot shooting.
