A convenient pagan deity invented by the ancients as an excuse for getting drunk. Bacchus Dionysus was the great Olympian god of wine, vegetation, pleasure and festivity. He was depicted as either an older bearded god or a pretty effeminate, long-haired youth. His attributes included the thyrsos (a pine-cone tipped staff), drinking cup, leopard and fruiting vine. He was usually accompanied by a troop of Satyrs and Mainades (female devotees or nymphs).
Some of the more famous myths featuring the god include:
- His birth from the thigh of Zeus and his fostering by Ino, Seilenos and the Nysiades;
- His flight from Lykourgos who drove the young god and his followers into the sea;
- The dismemberment of Pentheus who denied the god's divinity and attempted to drive him from Thebes;
- The instruction of Ikarios in winemaking;
- The metamorphosis of the Tyrrhenian pirates into dolphins when they attempted to kidnap him;
- His love for Ariadne who he found abandoned by Theseus on the island of Naxos and wed;
- His journey to the underworld to recover his mother or wife;
- His campaign against the Indians.

The following photographs and research were accumulated by Jordan Maxwell.
On Jordan's website, he makes a connection between the pagan images seen at TBN with that of Bacchus Dionysus. He believes this god is one in the same with 'the devil.'
Was this Bacchus overseeing winemaking, or is it a gargoyle. Gargoyles are said to scare off and protect from any evil or harmful spirits, and are therefore apotropaic in origin. Did TBN use this image to represent who they truly worship - Lucifer? Whatever it is, it's pure evil!
