Take a look at that image. A Christmas wreath in the shape of a peace sign. Sort of pretty, as Christmas decorations go, and it’s hard to believe that it is at the centre of a controversy that pits a Homeowners’ Association in Pagaso Springs Colorado against Lisa Jensen because the symbol is seen as an anti Iraq war protest and a sign of Satan.
Jensen is amazed saying: “I honestly wasn’t thinking of the Iraq war. Peace is way bigger than not being at war. This is a spiritual thing. I am not going to take it down until after Christmas. Now that it has come to this I feel I can’t get bullied. What if they don’t like my Santa Claus.”
The association is prepared to fine Jensen $25 a day saying: “Loma Linda residents are offended by the peace sign displayed on the front of your house. … This Board will not allow any signs, flags etc. that can be considered divisive….”
Stay strong Ms. Jensen.
UPDATE: The asshats backed down
