Imagine the gall of this woman putting up a Christmas wreath in the shape of a peace symbol during the run-up to the holiday celebrating the birth of the Prince of Peace.
The Colorado woman pictured, Lisa Jensen, was threatened with a $25/day fine for displaying this sign of peace on her home. Apparently, peace is offensive to some people.
All I know is that I’d rather see peace wreaths, circular wreaths, or basically anything coniferous over an inflatable Bart Simpson in a person’s yard. In fact, I’d take a coniferous Bart Simpson over an inflatable JC on the cross if I was forced to make a choice for my own yard.
Apparently, the homeowner’s association president has resigned since this story caught on. Homeowner’s association politics can get nasty. Hopefully, the energy put into this non-issue can be redirected to more meaningful issues.
Should we chalk this up as a defeat for the war on peace? Or did the war on war just win a battle?
