Denver: Christian school dropping ‘Crusaders’ mascot to appease Muslims

Islam means submission, not peace. via: Christian school insists dropping ‘Crusaders’ mascot not due to political correctness | EAGnews.org

DENVER – A Denver Christian school is changing its Crusaders mascot because some people think it’s offensive to Muslims.

“In our mission, in light of the command to love our neighbors as ourselves, the crusader was an inconsistent, inappropriate symbol for that mission,” Denver Christian Schools CEO Todd Lanting told KUSA.

After using the Crusaders mascot for 65 of the school’s 100 year history, officials in November began to solicit ideas for a new symbol, and have since narrowed it down to two possibilities: Thunder and Trailblazers.

The problem with the old name is that “a lot of people were concerned about the association with the crusades, a series of wars between Christians and Muslims,” according to the news site.

Lanting insists the change is not an effort to align with political correctness.

“It has nothing to do with political correctness,” he said. “It’s got everything to do with love and empathy for our neighbors.”

An unidentified school board member backed up the CEO in a staged interview at the school that drew dozens of spectators.

“A mascot is just a name. The name of the school, the name of who we are as people, and the name of the community we’re trying to create and invite other to is Christian,” he said. “and that’s the name that really has value to it.”

At least 300 folks who joined a Facebook page calling for school to keep the Crusaders name clearly disagree.

Numerous people who sounded off on KUSA’s Facebook page are also venting their frustrations about name change.

“As and alumni of DC, it’s hard to fathom that the school my grandparents, parents, and myself (attended) can’t see the tradition and history that made the school what it was/is,” Brad Meyering posted. “The biggest mistake the school administration ever made was making it a business, see CEO.

“Please instead of changing the mascot, change the entire name of the school and let Denver Christian Schools retire gracefully. Lakewood Community Trailblazers perhaps?”

“This is where it all starts, cave in to a few letters who complained, and go through a name change to appease a small minority while throwing the history and all those who studied under this banner under the bus,” Ella LeBain wrote, garnering many “Likes.” “Why should anyone cave to political ‘incorrectness’? …

“There is nothing offensive about the word ‘crusaders.’ What about Batman? Isn’t he called ‘the caped crusader’? Should we all ban Batman now too? Where does this nonsense end?”

“Why must there always be someone to ruin things like this?” Christina Stern questioned. “Let’s change the schools mascots! No let’s not and stop changing things that have a history and mean something to people.”


The DC can now be changed to Dhimmi Christians.

  5. Crusaders fought against islamist imperialists.They shouldn’t have bothered.

  6. The CEO was recorded comparing the Crusaders to Nazi’s.

  7. Well Denver Christian Schools, you might as well go all the way in your appeasement campaign. To that end I suggest you change your mascot to “Infidel.” After all, you don’t want those Muslims to feel bad while they’re attacking you.

  8. If your neighbor is being systematically killed by muslims, is it more loving to defend your neighbor or to offer your head to islam?

  9. Tares you trying to get Muslims to enroll in your school. I am a Christian and I am not offended by the Devils mascot name at a high school in North Al. You are being ridiculous, they are already offended, you are a Christian school.

  10. A school run by total idiots that should be tarred and feathered!

  11. […] CEO in Denver is changing the mascot of a Christian school because some people said it’s offensive to Muslims. You would like to think I was joking, but this is a real news story involving a weak pathetic CEO […]

  12. Hey CEO Todd Lanting, so how’s ’bout y’all jus’ go right on ahead and erect a real minaret and with that screeching g-damned call to HELL!!! You’re a lyin’ devil, Todd Lanting!!!! This has EVERYTHING to do with “political correctness” AND YOU KNOW IT!!!!! Oh and just to refresh y’all’s failing recollection–THE CRUSADES WERE FOUGHT TO STOP THE MUDSLIMES from DESTROYING all semblances of Christianity back in the Middle Ages. They were DEFENSIVE WARS, and without them you’d be speaking Arabic! Actually, truth be told, there would be NO CHRISTIANITY in the world today, if the Crusades had never been fought!!!!! SO WHEN ARE YOU GONNA STOP CALLING IT A “CHRISTIAN SCHOOL”??? AND WHEN DO YOU PLAN TO TAKE DOWN ALL THE CROSSES???? Hey, that goes with the territory, ya know!!!! Ya can’t have one w/o the other–YOU MUZZIE DHIMMI COWARD!!!!! IF I HAD ANY KIDS CURRENTLY ENROLLED AT YOUR SCHOOL, YOU CAN BET YOUR BOTTOM BUCK THEY WOULDN’T BE THERE NEXT YEAR!!!!! BTW, while were on betting terms, are you also teaching your students the MUZZLUM SHAHADA (5 pillars of issslam)????? Yeah, I’ll just BET you are!!!!!

    • @Steve. Well, well, hmmm… Not for nothin’, Steve, but’cha just might wanna rethink that one, no? Here’s the thing, Steve–killing ’em all just isn’t the answer. Allow me to suggest another approach–VOTE FOR TRUMP!! At least he’s willing to openly address the issue of all these Syrian MUZZLUM MOOCHERS that Obuzzma wants to dump on us! Yeah, I say, let’s give Trump a chance to RAIN on this muzzie influx parade of 7th century-Middle-Ages VERMIN!!! So far they don’t arrest you for casting your vote–AT LEAST NOT YET!!!!!              

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
