What do you think of the Church's new symbol?

What do I think?

Well, just look at it. His robe is fallen open -- very sloppy looking. It looks like tatters dangling at his foot. Really bad.

Most of all, I notice his nipple is exposed. Wow. Exposing the nipple in that fashion is either crude or a prelude to pornography.

Christ needs a haircut. He looks greasy and unkept. As a gay man, I wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole.

In a nutshell, I do NOT like the new Church logo at all. I think it looks terrible. It's just gross.

With that said, I don't even like Jesus, so perhaps, I'm a bit biased.

I find it unbecoming that the Mormons depict nail marks in the palms of resurrected Jesus. It's just wrong. The resurrected body is supposed to be glorious and perfected. Mormons make a crude display of Christ. There is no need to flash nail marks for someone crucified some 2,000 years ago when everyone knows who it's supposed to be. It's not necessary! It's crude and barbaric. Focusing on someone's mortal wounds is in poor taste. The Mormons seem to have a curious psychological egoism when it comes to trying to prove they're Christians.

Are the Mormons Christians? Not really. They work to get to heaven and rely on grace only after all they can do. It's suppose to be relying on all his grace and then doing what you can do to better the cause.
