For many children, riding the bus to school can only be described as a living hell. But one school bus in Tennessee might just belong to Satan himself.
That is according to a parent in Cordova, Tennessee, who snapped a picture of a school bus in traffic with what appears to be brake lights in the shape of a pentagram — the classic symbol of a five-pointed upside down star sometimes associated with Satanism.
WMC Action News 5 is sharing the woman’s story. It is stated that the woman’s identity is being withheld because she claims to be receiving “death threats for her views.”
“Anyone who fears a God, if not God and Jesus Christ, should be outraged,” she told the local news outlet.
She says other Christian parents should join in the outrage, since the vehicle, in her eyes, is marked with a “satanic symbol” and used to transport young children to public schools.
“If you can’t put a cross on there, you cannot put a pentagram on it,” the woman argued.
She went on to reference Walgreens’ decision to remove Hanukkah wrapping paper because it appeared to contain swastika patterns in the design.
“Would we allow a swastika, for instance, to be on the back of the bus?” the woman asked.
She has requested that the lights be replace with solid red brake lights.
Another parent said it just looks like a light to her, but added:
Why’d they put it up there? Why they got it like that — upside down?
It is noted in the news report that there have been no comments from the school district regarding the matter.
