WASHINGTON, D.C. — Seventh-day Adventist designers have been sent back to the drawing board after the United States Department of Homeland Security ordered edits to the denomination’s logo design.
Homeland Security spokesperson Hugh Dunnit explained the rationale behind the order saying that “the flames depicted in the Seventh-day Adventist logo irresponsibly encourage arson attacks.”
“Not just one but three violent flames are depicted in the logo that figures on just about every tract, church sign or lengthy PowerPoint issued by the Seventh-day Adventist Church,” said Dunnit. “How Adventist leadership could create this logo with a clean conscience is beyond me.”
Dunnit said that General Conference administrators have been given six days to create a replacement logo which will need to be approved by Homeland Security before it is disseminated “from Rome to the provinces.”
- Where Single Adventists meet. Free 2 year membership. Divorced, widowed, and never married welcomed. We want Adventists to meet other Adventists.
Awesome name for the Homeland Security spokesperson, “Hugh Dunnit.” That’s exactly what we want to know: “Who done it?”
6 days to redesign and one day to rest.
ITS AN OK LOGO, 5/10. DEFINITELY NOT AN INSPIRED LOGO
How about some smiley faces facing all directions of the compass point? Maybe the sunshine bursts-no that is sun worship. Three angels floating around the globe is too sensitive, too much like an end time event or self destruction & annihilation. What we gonna do? Can’t have the mark or number of the beast. That is Catholic bashing. Why am I so confused over this one? Let me go back to my room and think-think and rethink. I want my mommy. Get me a pile of Little Debbies to scarf down. Woe iz me!!
Going back to your room? Don’t you mean your padded cell?
At the center of the Adventist corporate logo/signature, one with discernment, can see the iconic symbol that evolved up through the corporate ranks of Catholicism to become the accepted statement among Protestant denominations including that of our own persuasion. Alistair Kee got it.
“…there is one conquest made by Constantine, the effect of which still continues to the present day, his most surprising yet least acknowledged…He conquered the Christian church. The conquest was complete, extending over doctrine, liturgy, art and architecture, comity, ethos and ethics…But this achievement, unheralded then, unrecognized now, represents Constantine’s greatest conquest, the one which has persisted largely unchallenged through the centuries in Europe and wherever European Christianity has spread… To be declared heretical by the norms of orthodox Constantinian Christianity may be a source of relief and encouragement to those who seek to follow Christ.” –Alistair Kee, Constantine versus Christ: The Triumph of Ideology (London: SCM Press Ltd, 1982),pp. 169
#1. I don’t believe that Homeland Security has the power to order anything. #2. Have you seen the United Methodist Cross and Flame Logo? It appears to be a burning cross. (An ignorant person might see this as racist if he or she did not understand the symbolism of the Holy Spirit. )
Isn’t it obvious? This call comes from beyond homeland security itself. The wizard behind the curtain, ROME! Homelands Security is just a puppet!
