Do you like coffee?

Pro-coffee T-Shirt tweaks Mormon Church, Church responds with trademark threat
A Utah coffee-shop made a funny t-shirt that showed coffee being funnelled into the trumpet of the Angel Moroni (a sigil that tops Mormon temples -- the Church bans hot drinks). The LDS Church threatened to sue for trademark infringement, so they got an even better design:

It shows a giant hand from the sky pouring the java - which the LDS Church urges its members to abstain from drinking - into a disembodied trumpet. The caption: "The Lord giveth, and a church taketh away." Store owners Ed Beazer and Van Lidell insist it's just harmless repartee, albeit a tad one-sided. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints isn't talking about the new design and whether it violates the trademark.
