Parents often find many things to complain about when it comes to the public school system, but one Tennessee mom’s complaint has thrown people for a loop. This mom is furious over the pentagram-shaped lights on a local school bus, which she finds offensive to her religion.
WMC Action News 5 reported that a mom from Cordova, Tennessee sent in a complaint to bring attention to an issue with the school buses in the area. While it’s not uncommon to hear complaints about school buses, these problems are typically regarding bullying, adequate seating, and pickup times. After getting behind a bus, this Tennessee mom has found something new to complain about with school buses–the lights.
It’s not a matter of the lights on the school bus not being bright enough to see, though. This mom is upset about the shape of the lights.

As you can see from the picture the concerned mom took, the brake lights are shaped like stars. Since the stars are upside down, the mom believes that the lights are meant to be pentagrams, which is often associated with Satanism.
“Anyone who fears a God, if not God and Jesus Christ, should be outraged,” said the mom, who hasn’t been identified because of death threats she says she has received.
The mom believes that the pentagram-shaped lights were intentional and are being used to promote Satanism. “If you can’t put a cross on there, you cannot put a pentagram on it,” she said.
So far no one from the district or the company that owns the school buses has responded to the complaint of the pentagram-shaped brake lights, so it’s not likely that the mom will see any changes the next time she gets behind a bus in her car.
Interestingly enough, this Tennessee mom isn’t the only person to complain about Satanism being promoted via school bus brake lights. Check out a video one man took of a school bus in his area (undisclosed) below.[Photo Credit: Wikimedia Commons]
