A group of churches in Salem, Virginia recently organized a religious Easter play titled "Lamb of God
." Despite the piece sharing its name with one of today's biggest metal acts, it would all have been fine and dandy without one little detail - they actually used the band's logo on the ticket.
reports, the picture that found its way onto the ticket pops up among the first results when typing "lamb of god logo"
, so the scenario of someone just slapping the given logo and sending it for printing without doing any research doesn't seem so unlikely these days.
After receiving several complaints regarding the logo, the Salem Community Easter Drama Facebook
page issued the following statement: "We understand there have been some unfriendly comments online because of a graphic we used on one of our invitation tickets that had not been properly vetted. That graphic is on those tickets only and is not the 'official' logo for the drama. We apologize for our mistake and for any confusion we may have caused. Now, back to our true purpose, and that is lifting the name of Jesus Christ!"
