After being banished from campus seven years ago, a devil mascot could return to Mission Viejo High School, in one form or another. Students, faculty, staff and administrators will vote for a new mascot logo on Sept. 22, capping a year of debate and controversy that recently sparked a lawsuit by a group of parents. Among the five mascot candidates are a Tasmanian devil cartoon character, a fierce devil dog and another devilish figure.

Said classmate Brieann Hood, 5, "I got to see plants, holes and a squirrel."

Re "Student's Suit Over Bible Club Ban Reinstated," March 2: The 4th District Court of Appeal decision to overturn the lower court's ruling, and allow the lawsuit by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes against the Saddleback Valley Unified School District to proceed, conveniently overlooks the applicability of the equal access laws in the real world. If the organization is allowed to have meetings on the Mission Viejo High School campus, the provisions of the same Equal Access Act demand that the school accommodate requests for similar clubs with different religious orientations.

Some Mission Viejo parents appear to be lacking both a sense of humor and trust in their children at Mission Viejo High School. Surely a little devilishness on the part of young people raised in Christian homes is not going to condemn them to hell. It's the young people's school so let them choose how to present it. The parents are upset by a cartoonish depiction of an otherworldly figure. The situation might be different if there was an actual photo of Old Scratch. Who knows what the devil looks like?
