Luciano, this topic is raised quite often actually.  The logo is not a
"demon" in the evil satanic sense, it is a "daemon" - yes, it's red and
has little horns, but it is not related in any way to any anti-religious

Rest assured that MANY MANY christians (and other religious groups) use
FreeBSD knowing there is no "demon" installed, only daemons (the programs
that idle on your machine to keep things running, like linux, solaris, etc
have also).

Does that help?
