(Newser) – A Georgia pastor was arrested today for protesting a high school's mascot, the Macon Telegraph reports. Donald Crosby and about 30 others gathered outside Warner Robins High School, whose mascot is a demon. But the picketers didn't have a permit to protest, and Crosby was arrested when he refused to leave. "I don't scare easily," Crosby, whose son is a freshman assigned to the school, told CBS affiliate WMAZ.

"Lock me up as many times as you have to lock me up. Even kill me if you have to," Crosby continued. "I'm standing up for Jesus."
