According to a recent WMC report, one Memphis, Tenn., parent is calling out the local school district for including a demonic symbol in the tail lights of some of its buses. Scroll down to see a full image of the offending lights.
The mother, who initially wished to remain anonymous because of threats she had received, explained that she stopped behind one of the buses and noticed the offensive symbol. She was later identified as Robyn Wilkins.
“Anyone who fears a god, if not God and Jesus Christ, should be outraged,” Wilkins said, noting that if the district would not be allowed to display a Christian cross on a vehicle, it “cannot put a pentagram on it.”
The network spoke to a Wiccan, Jo Applewhite, who confirmed the symbol was “technically” a pentagram and said the shape is used in the practice of the pagan religion. She went on to encourage anyone upset about the lights to research whether their installation was intended to depict the symbol.
Another local said she saw the mother’s point, adding that people “should be upset if that is against their feelings, religion, et cetera.”
The complainant said it is unlikely any other religious or offensive symbol would be permitted on a public school bus.
“Would we allow a swastika, for instance, to be on the back of the bus?” Wilkins asked.
Reaction to the story was varied, with several commenters asserting that the mother was likely overreacting to the situation.
Others, however, used this incident to identify an ostensible attack on Christianity in America through the promotion of pagan faiths.
Given the mother’s reluctance to identify herself after allegedly receiving death threats, it appears passions on both sides of the issue run deep.
