Anti-Mascot Church: Losing the Plot

August 10, 2010

When you are a pastor, and you get arrested picketing a high school mascot–that’s right: a mascot!–you have officially lost the plot.

A pastor who wants to get rid of the Demons mascot at Warner Robins High was arrested while picketing in front of the school on the first day of school Monday.Donald Crosby, pastor of God’s Kingdom Builders Church of Jesus Christ in Macon, was charged with disorderly conduct and picketing without a permit, both misdemeanors, after he refused to comply with officers requests to leave, said Tabitha Pugh, public information officer for Warner Robins police…

Crosby has been circulating petitions to have the mascot removed, he said, because demons represent evil and the mascot “gives evil a good face,” Crosby said. “Prayer had to leave but the demons can stay?”…

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.

I wonder what the homeless population is in Macon. I wonder how many people don’t have food or health care. I wonder how many abused children or spouses there are. I’m sure there is a long list of issues that could rightfully be protested, but… *sigh*… they protest a mascot.

Belligerent and ignorant. What a lovely combination. I’m sure Sunday mornings are quite, ah, “interesting” at God’s Kingdom Builders Church of Jesus Christ.

    Actually before people insult a pastor you should do your research. I know that you shouldn’t just insult men of God. It shows a person has no morals and is lazy when it comes to research. With this issue i found out this pastor’s son was zoned to go to this high school in the 9th grade and when they wouldn’t let him transfer because of moral issues he protested. I wonder if people know every word you say you will have to justify in front of God one day to see if you will actually make it into heaven. Might need to recant your statements and not just run with half stories.
