Christian Mom Alarmed that School Bus Has Tail Lights form Pagan Pentagram



A Christian mom in Cordova, Tennessee is worried that occult influences are lurking in her town and showing their presence in the unlikeliest of places, the red tail lights of local school buses. Memphis’ Action News 5 reported Wednesday that Robyn Wilkins snapped a photo of the tail lights while she sat behind a bus in traffic. To her, the pattern of tiny light bulbs under each brake light’s red plastic lens looked like inverted five-pointed stars, which form the ancient symbol of the pentagram when enclosed by a circle.

“Anyone who fears a God, if not God and Jesus Christ, should be outraged,” the worried mother told Channel 5.

Pentagrams are a sacred symbol to various ancient faiths. Some Satanists and occultists have adopted it as their holy symbol, but other faiths use it as well.

Wilkins and other concerned parents have taken to social media to protest the brake lights, which they say constitute a sacred symbol emblazoned on a government vehicle.

“If you can’t put a cross on there, you cannot put a pentagram on it,” said Wilkins.

God is a Sports Fanatic?

23 January 2015 - 06:55 PM

According to many religious Americans God is a sports fanatic.

Question is, is he playing favorites?

Here is what the Public Religion Research Institute found out...

The Hand of God in Sports

Majorities of Americans (53%) and sports fans (56%) say that God rewards athletes who have faith with good health and success; more than 4-in-10 of Americans (45%) and sports fans (42%) disagree.

Roughly two-thirds of Catholics (65%) and minority Protestants (68%) say that God rewards faithful athletes with good health and success. Six-in-ten (60%) white evangelical Protestants and nearly half (49%) of white mainline Protestants also believe faithful athletes are rewarded. By contrast, only 27% of the religiously unaffiliated believe athletes with faith are rewarded, while 71% disagree.

About 1-in-4 (26%) Americans and 27% of self-described sports fans say that God plays a role in determining which team wins a sporting event. About 7-in-10 Americans (71%) and sports fans (69%) disagree.

Minority Protestants (45%) are more likely than any other religious group to believe that God plays a role in determining which team wins a sporting event. More than 3-in-10 white evangelical Protestants (32%) and Catholics (31%) believe that God plays a role in determining which team wins a game. Only about 1-in-5 (19%) white mainline Protestants and 9% of the religiously unaffiliated believe God has a hand in the outcome of sporting events.

Syrian Dictator No Longer 'Has to Go'

21 January 2015 - 10:28 AM

Looks like the US and our allies are finally figuring out secular dictatorships aren't so bad.
 

On Monday, The New York Times reported that the State Department had signed off on two separate diplomatic initiatives aimed at bringing about the end of the Syrian civil war. One omission made both proposals particularly notable: Neither contains the prerequisite for the end of Assad's rule.

...the United States and members of the EU, have at least two good reasons to keep part of his regime intact: Iraq and Libya. When the dictators of those two countries were deposed, power vacuums emerged in both places, leading to chaos and pitched sectarian violence.

“The political solution will of course include some elements of the regime because we don’t want to see the pillars of the state fall apart," France's Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said last week. "We would end up with a situation like Iraq.”

Even the neocons of the world are starting to figure this out.  TB posters... not so much.

Louisville Coach Rick Pitino "Played Four White Guys and an Egyptian"

25 November 2014 - 03:39 PM

last night, in the middle of Louisville's blowout win against Savannah State—the Cardinals were up 29-0 at one point and 41-7 at the half—Rick Pitino realized that he needed to do something to try and avoid embarrassing Savannah State any further. So he put in three white walk-on players, a 7-foot Norwegian player, and a 7-foot Egyptian player in order to try and give Savannah State a chance to score.

"I tried everything," Pitino said after the game. "We played four white guys and an Egyptian."

Unfortunately, though, the plan didn't really work. Savannah State did score more than 7 points in the second half of the game, but they still lost 87-26 and were so bad that Pitino wished the game hadn't even been played after it ended.

"This will be the first time since I've been at Louisville that I will not watch the game film," he said. "You get nothing out of this. You feel bad for the other team."
