Idle Drives are the Devil’s Playground. The Brazilian Evangelical Campaign Against USB

News have surfaced in Brazil that an evangelical group known as “Paz do Senhor Amado” has banned USB devices from the homes of its followers on the grounds that the USB symbol looks like Satan’s trident.

According to its founder, “Apostle” Welder Saldanha “this is just another symbol of Satan, which is always present in all Christian homes.”

“The symbol of “that name” (a proper noun that the “apostle” refuses to say aloud) is a trident, which is used to torture souls that go to hell. That kind of symbol shows that all users of that vile technology are actually worshipers of the unholy.”

All the USB connections of his followers were exchanged for common connections, Bluetooth preferably, which according to Saldanha is ideal, as “Blue was the color of the eyes of our savior Jesus Christ”.
