As far as I know, Christians are the only religious group certain
members of which have seen fit to complain about the FreeBSD logo.

As far as I'm concerned, any person making such a superstitious and
nonsensical statement opens themselves up to a spot of well deserved
ridicule.  Regardless of what their faith is.  Fortunately, most
practitioners of most faiths nowadays seem to have abandoned
superstition and adopted reason.

Besides, I suspect that the OP was not in fact genuinely offended but
merely trying to stir up trouble, given that the message was sent using
mPOP Web-Mail[*]; a well-known spamming tool, and while the message
appears to be from a Russian mail service, it actually originated from
somewhere in Canada.
