A pastor arrested Monday for protesting Warner Robins High School’s “Demon” nickname and mascot says he was just standing up for Jesus — and he’d do it again. Pastor Donald Crosby said the school’s demon logo just encourages children to evil.
“I don’t scare easily. Lock me up as many times as you have to lock me up. Even kill me if you have to. I’m standing up for Jesus.”
He criticized other Christians who, he says, are singing in church while their children are being taught to praise demons.

“Demons aren’t lazy, Christians are,” he said.
He said the city of Warner Robins must repent for its demon-praising.
Crosby is pastor of Kingdom Builders Church of Jesus Christ in Macon.
The first time Crosby was arrested was on Monday. He was charged with disorderly conduct and picketing outside the school without a permit. He was released from jail on a $650 bond.
Crosby, new to the Warner Robins area, has been protesting for several months the mascot for the school his son attends. Crosby has said he was shocked when he realized his own son could be among the hundreds of students shouting “Go Demons!” in cheering on the school’s historically successful football team.
