Denver Christian Schools changing from Crusaders
by Steve Staeger
For 65 years of their 100 year history, Denver Christian Schools has been known as the Crusaders. Later this year, that will change.
School leaders say many in the community have expressed concerns about the mascot and its ties to the Crusades, a series of wars between Christians and 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," school CEO Todd Lanting said.
