Georgia Pastor Donald Crosby Arrested for Protesting High School’s Red Demon Mascot

Now this is the type of thing Christians should be ready, willing and able to do to fight against the enemy because this is clearly the work of Satan. Kudos to Pastor Crosby for standing for what’s right.

Read report below:

Pastor Donald Crosby of Georgia has filed a federal lawsuit claiming the city of Warner Robins violated his rights when he was arrested for protesting a high school’s red demon mascot. The pastor says the city of Warner Robins violated his First Amendment rights.

Police officers took pastor Crosby to jail in August 2010 after he failed to show a permit while protesting Warner Robins High School’s mascot. After he obtained a permit a few days later, but was consequently arrested again during a second protest at the school.

In Crosby’s lawsuit, he says he was shaken by the experience and forced to move out for fear of continued harassment.

“Maybe I’m completely crazy and I don’t know what I’m talking about. Or maybe all of their allegations are true,” Crosby said in an interview. “But the fact of the matter is I believe I have the right to be heard.”

Crosby and about 25 members of his congregation, God’s Kingdom Builders Church of Jesus Christ in Macon, gathered outside the high school on the first day of classes in 2010. Waving “Warner Robins Must Repent” signs, they urged the school to abandon the team’s name, which Crosby said was offensive to Christians.

He staged another rally a few days later after he received a permit, but was arrested again for holding the demonstration at the school. He held a third rally a day later that was videotaped by local police.

“The majority of the community applauded the demon and here I was going against it,” he said. “They wanted me silenced and they were willing to bend the law to make sure it happened.”

His attorney, Gerry Weber, called the city’s restrictions “blatantly unconstitutional,” an argument Elliott vowed to vigorously fight. Crosby, for his part, is treating his brush with the law as a point of pride.

“I felt honored getting locked up. Every hero in the Bible, every apostle, every prophet, every real preacher got locked up for standing up for Christ,” he said. “I’m not ashamed it happened and I’d do it again.”
