Bacchus Dionysus: god of TBN?

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:

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!
