Russia: Apple Inc Branded As Unchristian by Orthodox Activists
Now I knew there was something dodgy about those Apple Inc Devils.


Interfax new agency reported [ru] today that a fringe group of Russian Orthodox activists (including some priests) has “on a number of occasions” staged public protests against the maker of the iPhone and iPad, Apple Inc., on the grounds that the company's logo (a monochrome “bitten” apple) constitutes an anti-Christian symbol. The activists, who apparently also own Apple computers, have made a public spectacle of hanging crosses over their machines' Apple logo, which they say alludes to the forbidden fruit discussed in Genesis 2:16–17 of the Bible. Others have pointed out that Apple's original 1976 logo in fact depicted Isaac Newton sitting under an apple tree, though the iconic rainbow “bitten” apple logo was adopted almost immediately thereafter.
