Coca-Cola Satanism

baphosimb.gifThe BBC reports that Russian prosecutors are considering charges against Coca-Cola, which is accused of blaspheming against Orthodox Christianity in a recent ad campaign in Nizhny Novgorod, southeast of Moscow.
Says the BBC:

The protesters – mostly Russian Orthodox Christian believers – allege that Coca-Cola adverts in Nizhny Novgorod are insulting to their beliefs. …. “Coca-Cola uses all these Orthodox symbols in a blasphemous way by placing images of Coca-Cola bottles inside the pictures,” the complaint said, according to Russia’s Ria Novosti news agency. … “Some images are deliberately turned upside down, including the crosses,” it said.
An inverted cross is considered to be one of the symbols of satanism.
