Demon, Be Gone

What is it with people protesting non-issues? I give you Pastor Donald Crosby of Macon, GA. He is protesting the Warner Robins High School mascot because it is a demon. This is only one of about 4 million high school mascots that is a demon. So why is he protesting this demon?
"Demons aren't lazy, Christians are," he said. He said the city of Warner Robins must repent for its demon-praising.

Has there been an outbreak of poltergeist-like activity around Warner Robins High School that the rest of us are unaware of? Not at all. The pastor has a problem with the idea of having a demon as a mascot. I don’t see how this mascot is going to sway a person one way or the other. My high school mascot was a Viking, which did not lead to me sailing in a ship to take over new lands to rape, pillage, and plunder.

The pastor was arrested and was told that he couldn’t protest outside of the school unless he had a permit.
"I didn't know you had to get permission to voice your opinion," Pastor Crosby said.

Yeah, actually you do have to get permission if you are going to protest. It’s called the law. Religious people yet again feeling that the law doesn’t apply to them when it gets in the way of their ridiculous nature. This isn’t a civil rights issue, this is an issue about some crazy pastor protesting a high school for a stupid reason and not having a permit for it.

Perhaps if the good pastor would put that energy into protesting actual problems, maybe we could make some progress on race relations, religious relations, and ending an unnecessary war.
