WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — A pastor arrested Monday for protesting Warner
Robins High School’s “Demon” nickname and mascot says he was just
standing up for Jesus — and he’d do it again.
Pastor Donald Crosby said the school’s demon logo just encourages children to evil.
“I don’t scare easily. Lock me up as many times as you have to lock
me up. Even kill me if you have to. I’m standing up for Jesus.”
He criticized other Christians who, he says, are singing in church while their children are being taught to praise demons.
“Demons aren’t lazy, Christians are,” he said.
He said the city of Warner Robins must repent for its demon-praising.
Just who are thosedemons?
The mascot is a red devil with horns wielding a pitchfork. A large
version of the mascot is wheeled out to the end zone during football
games. Sparks shoot from the pitchfork when Warner Robins scores. The
mascot was named for the Air Force’s 7th Fighter Squadron when the
school opened in 1946, according to school officials. The squadron was
nicknamed the Screamin’ Demons.
