'Satanic school bus' slammed by mum

An angry mum in Tennessee has exploded with fury after claiming the tail lights of a local school bus are pentagrams.

She saw the patterns in the LED cluster behind the red circular casings, took a photo, and has demanded action from Durham School Services in Cordova – partly because she says Christians aren’t allowed to display crosses on vehicles.

WMC Action News 5 reports: “Anyone who fears a God, if not God and Jesus Christ, should be outraged. If you can’t put a cross on there, you can’t put a pentagram on it.”

The news service says they won’t reveal her name because she’s “getting death threats for her views.”

Education bosses haven’t commented. One Wiccan told the news service: “Go find out if it was intentional.” She added that the pentagram sign isn’t Satanic or evil in the first place, saying: “Find out what it really means before you start getting riled up and all worked up about something.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
