Epic Fail: Anti-gay Christian group produces suggestive logo (‘On our knees for America’)

IS this an epic fail? The anti-gay mariage, anti-gay, sex-obsessed Christianist group Call 2 Fall have produced a new logo:

Declaration comes straight from the pages of Scripture:

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14).
The journey back to God, to His forgiveness and favor, begins on our knees in humility and repentant prayer. Consider the words of the Declaration prayerfully:

I will answer God’s call to fall on my knees in humility and seek His face in repentance so that He might forgive my sins and heal our land.


The Call2Fall is nothing fancy.  It is not a slick new program.  No big production is necessary.  It is simple.  We are just talking about a definite time during worship on Sunday, June 30, 2013 when we get on our knees and faces before the Lord in repentant prayer, pleading with God to reshape our lives, renew our land, and send times of refreshing (See 2 Chronicles 7:14; Acts 3:19).

We’re “On our knees for America”.

Want to see the logo? Here is it:

call 2 fall 3


I’m in! All the way!

Colon navigations: University of the Arts London gets a new logo

GET a load of that natty new logo for the University of the Arts London (UAL). It’s £48,000 well invested.  The cutting-edge design was created by Domenic Lippa, a UAL alumnus. Lippa explains how he came up with the wonder:

 “The colon is the connection between UAL and the completion of the identity. A variety of colleges and variety of creativities exist. So it’s quite a challenge for us. This is a sort of new generation of our expression for the university.” 

Colons can do that. Minami Takahashi, a student of Foundation Art and Design at Central Saint Martins, approves:

“Though £48,000 seems expensive for creating a logo, the new logo will bring a fresh feeling to the place and give me more motivation to study.”

The Wichita Logo Looks Like No American Breast We’ve Seen

TO Wichita, where some says the logo for the new Century II performing arts and convention centre looks like a female breast. Says City Council Member Jeff Longwell: “I think we need to revisit it.”

Indeed, in the US no female breast looks like this. Were the logo to reflect the modern female form the nipple would be perched atop 37-feet high cone of the stuff those coat the Space Shuttle with. The logo looks like a shed on top of a hill.

Here are some other logos that may be suggestive to your dirty minds:

Waterstones New Logo Is Average And White With Big Saggy Breasts
