Apple’s logo of an Apple
with a bite taken out of it is one of the most easily recognized logos
in the world. Most of us see it and just think about technology, but it
might surprise you to learn that Orthodox Christians in Russia see the
symbol and think about ‘sin’.
The bitten Apple logo is a bit too close to the story of Adam and Eve
for their taste. A translation of a news report in Russia suggests that
some have even covered up the Apple trademark with a cross whenever they see it in the country.
point of view is that it represents the apple that allegedly fell and
hit Sir Isaac Newton on the head and lead to the discovery of gravity.
The Soviet Church doesn’t care. They may even be thinking about passing
anti-Blasphemy laws which could force Apple to change its logo in the
country or refrain from selling its products.
