A petition is being distributed at Capital University to change the school's Crusader mascot. 

The petition cites the term 'Crusader' as being offensive to Muslims and Jews. The Crusades were a series of religious wars fought from 1096 to 1291 when Christian armies from Europe invaded the Middle East.  The University plans to form a group to study the issue and make recommendations.
