Starbucks = 'Slutbucks'?

On the evening news today, there was a story about a Christian group boycotting Starbucks based on coffee shop's new logo. The new image (below) is very similiar to its original mermaid logo when the first store opened in Pike Place Market.

The group says:

"The Starbucks logo has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute," explains Mark Dice, founder of the group. "Need I say more? It's extremely poor taste, and the company might as well call themselves, Slutbucks."

I personally didn't find the ad all that offensive, but maybe other's do?

Is anyone highly offended by this ad?
