MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) – A Tennessee mother is furious after she says she noticed something sinister on a public school bus.

Robyn Wilkins says she was simply snapping a photo of her child’s school bus when she noticed an unusual shape in the brake lights.

“Anyone who fears a God, if not God and Jesus Christ, should be outraged,” she said.

Wilkins claims an upside down, five-pointed star can be seen in the brake lights of the bus.

She says Christians should be outraged that a symbol that looks like a pentagram would be allowed in the design of a vehicle used to transport children.

Parents have taken to social media to debate the topic.

Some say the brake lights are a subliminal message, while others say it is just an unintentional design.

“If you can’t put a cross on there, you cannot put a pentagram on it,” Wilkins argues.

Jo Applewhite, a practicing Wiccan, says the symbol is not a Satanic or evil one.

“Find out what it really means before you start getting riled up and all worked up about something,” she said. “Wiccans, we believe in God, we believe in Jesus, but we don’t call him God.”

Either way, concerned parents want the lights replaced.

Neither Durham School Services nor the school district would answer WMC’s questions about the lights.
