I find the equating of Beastie to a religious symbol, which is what
provoked this stupid logo contest thing, infinitely more offensive.
And I suspect the majority of people are of the same mind.  Quite
obviously, the boot-lickers of the conservative right don't understand
- my choice of language was intended to knock some sense in to them.

I hope, for their sake, that they are offended.  Greatly.  If so then
might possibly have an idea of how offensive this entire Beastie=the
thing is to those of us with normally functioning brains.  I am surprised
you didn't grasp the meaning in my message immediately, you at least
are a writer and should understand manipulation.  We certainly have had
enough of it from the conservative apologists that spawned this new
FreeBSD sex-toy logo.
