Brazil is on to me:
Heather pointed this out to me on Twitter, and it is glorious. The article goes on to say:
The evangelical cult “Paz do Senhor Amado” (“Peace Beloved of the Lord”) in the interior of Brazil forbids its followers to use any USB technology by contending that it uses a symbol that makes apology to the devil.
According to its founder, the “Apostle” Welder Saldanha says that this is just a symbol of Satan, is always present in all Christian homes.
“The symbol of that name (he even likes to pronounce) is a trident, which is used to torture souls go to hell. Use only a symbol of those shows that all users of this technology pífia are actually worshipers of Satan” – explains the” Apostle”.
Measures were taken so that all the USB connections of his followers were exchanged for common connections and even the Bluetooth (sic), which according to Saldanha Welder is permitted, for “Blue was the color of the eyes of our savior Jesus Christ”.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Jesus born in the Middle East, meaning he would resemble people in that area? I don’t think there are many blue-eyed people in Israel. Then again, these could just be the words of SATAN in my MOUTH. Take that, logic!
So, yes. I got the USB symbol tattoo’d on my leg not because I am a giant nerd, but because I am a giant Brazilian Satan worshipper.
Now you know!
