The mascot is not REALLY the Devil. Is this REALLY the most terrible thing in your son's life, Pastor? Can you just get a grip here? No, probably not.
"The devil is at the center of a fight that seems to start every few years when someone new to Warner Robins realizes that the city's oldest high school, which has one of the most successful football programs in Georgia, rallies around a green-eyed, pitchfork-carrying demon.
The Warner Robins High School Demons.
A pastor at Kingdom Builders Church of Jesus Christ was shocked when he realized his own son could be among the hundreds of students shouting ‘Go Demons!' to cheer on the school's sports teams, but particularly in football, where the Demons have won four state championships over the years.
“It's the equivalent of us gathering into a church on Sunday morning and shouting ‘Go Jesus' or ‘Hallelujah Jesus,'" Donald Crosby, a Warner Robins resident for about a year, told Macon television station WMAZ.
The preacher has tried to move his ninth-grade son to a different school, one with a mascot more to the family's liking. In the meanwhile, he is collecting signatures on a petition to change the symbol."
