    Except that the only ones that might complain about Demons and Devils are Christians --- so.......that may not be true in this case

    because they are all fictional

    I have heard of Christian groups complain about mascots of that type.

    Re: College Mascots across America on chopping block

    I remember right wing groups wanting to end "devil" and "demon" mascots/nicknames. I remember Halloween being effectively canceled when it fell on a Sunday. I remember the Saturday morning Dungeon & Dragons cartoon of the mid-80s not being shown on local television.

    I remember being at GW during the mid/late 90s and navigating through leftist protesters who wanted the school disassociated from George Washington because he was too white and too male, thus representing the patriarchy and oppression. I saw these same people championing the viewing of pornography at the student center. (I guess the argument that pornography objectifies and oppresses women hadn't been invented yet.)

    My preference would be to gather up all these idiots on both extremes and knock their heads together until they learn the concept of context and consistent philosophical thought. I don't expect that to happen, so I'd be content with the continual skull cracking.

    that tends to happen with the movement of lots of hot air.

    i was sorely disappointed as a teenager to discover that i couldn't actually summon a demon by playing a black sabbath album backwards while reading a d and d monster manual out loud.

    Is the Seminole Nation still receiving its annual multi million stipend from Free Shoes University for use of the Seminole name and logo?
