Source: The Guardian (sio letu) Evangelical Christians in Brazil have apparently banned the use of USB connections after claiming the technology is the mark of Satan-worshippers (Hat tip: Fernando Frias). Apparently the revelation came after the evangelists noticed that the USB symbol resembles a trident. Presumably theyre not great fans of Britains ballistic missiles either. Heres the story, though be aware that aside from being repeated on a bunch of Brazilian websites, Ive yet to find much to back it up, so if this turns up on Snopes dont blame me. English (Translation): The evangelical cult Paz do Senhor Amado (Peace of the beloved Lord) in the interior of Brazil forbids its followers to use any USB technology by contending that it uses a symbol that shows sympathy for the devil. According to its founder, the Apostle Welder Saldanha says that this is just another symbol of Satan, which is always present in all Christian homes. The symbol of that name (a name which he doesnt even like to pronounce) is a trident, which is used to torture souls that go to hell. Use only a symbol of those shows that all users of that vile technology are actually worshippers 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 saviour Jesus Christ.
