No Nazis On Our Moonbeam

File under: Wackadoo Gurus

UFO sex guru Claude Vorilhon, aka Rael, has recently reincorporated a swastika symbol into his Star of David-based logo design. It was apparently a part of the original design, but since Vorilhon has appropriated ancient Jewish ideology as some of the basis of his bullshit, and since he's seeking to establish a Raelian embassy in Jerusalem for his legions in outer space, he decided to capitulate to Jewish cultural sensitivities. Well, he's gotten almost no traction in the Jewish world since, so he's decided to stick the reviled symbol right back in their faces, perhaps to spite them, all under cover of reclaiming "the true history of the swastika and make sure their symbol is forever respected."

We imagine it's really just a big 'ol "fuck you" to those who think he's a nutbag, but we have to admit that they've done a nice job integrating the seemingly symbolic opposites into a single, handsome design.

They may have their heads (and fingers, fists and all kinds of sex toys both biological and mechanical) far up their asses as far as anything else goes, but at least the Raelians have got one good graphic designer on staff somewhere in the cosmos.
