The Elon College Fightin' Christians

Funny story here. North Carolina seems to be a hotbed for odd religious-themed mascots. Demon Deacons, Blue Devils, and who knew about this one? I've heard Elon students break out retro mascot t-shirts for their occasional home games against Liberty.

Just wondering, though--is "Fightin' Christians" more or less offensive than "Crusaders"?

the mascot looks more like an orthodox jew than any particular christian sect.

Hmm. . . I will not touch your question. Great story.

I will soon be a mild-mannered, comletely inoffensive Cougar.

it's not an oxymoron if the team they are fighting against is insane and comes into the stadium with a machine gun. ha! guess who.

I think it is pretty tough to be more offensive "Crusader".
