A Man with a Flashlight


Blasphemy against the prophet

Muslims demonstrate – but the Mormon church claims violation of intellectual property.

To wit:

T-shirts being sold at the coffee shop feature an image of the angel Moroni, the golden statue of a male figure in a robe blowing a trumpet that sits atop many LDS temples. In the Just Add Coffee version, Moroni’s trumpet is angled upward as coffee from a pot is poured into it.
“It was a spoof,” Beazer said. “It was meant to be fun.”

Can a religious figurehead be trademarked? Could the Catholic church sue everyone with a tattoo of Mary or the Sacred Heart of Jesus?
