Satan's School Bus Makes Mom Mad As Hell

Look, school buses are hell.

You build up the courage to finally try out that Old Navy Tech Vest at school, and the other kids on the bus are your first round of critics. And they are a tough crowd. Not only does Jeremy immediately knock your fashion sense, but he takes your lunch money and sits next to your crush, Carol.

Suddenly you realize that your new duds aren't the answer to your popularity problems, and it's going to be a long ride to school. You ruined my shot, Jeremy. YOU RUINED IT.

Anyway, it's important to note the hellish experience children sustain on the bus, because one mom in Memphis, Tennessee, is super upset about what's going on outside a school bus.

Robyn Wilkins snapped a photo of the bus, which features brake lights shaped as stars -- or, in her view, Satanic pentagrams -- and sent it to local reporters to get the Jesus Christ back in those flashing lights.

"Anyone who fears a God, if not God and Jesus Christ, should be outraged," she told WMC Action News. "If you can't put a cross on there, you cannot put a pentagram on it."

Durham School Services and the local school district wouldn't comment on the purpose of pentagram-shaped brake lights. Still, it's highly unlikely that the school district is trying to incorporate Satan into its transportation. To be sure, the pentagram is a sacred symbol to some Satanists, but other faiths use it as well, Raw Story reports.

Heck, even a local Wiccan scoffed at the outrage -- which, we should remind you, consists of one parent calling their local news station.

"Find out what it really means before you start getting riled up and all worked up about something," Jo Applewhite, a practicing Wiccan, told WMC. "Wiccans, we believe in God, we believe in Jesus, but we don't call him God."
