Satanic Anti-Military Christmas Wreath

CNN has this breaking news:

A homeowners’ association in southwestern Colorado has threatened to fine a resident $25 a day until she removes a Christmas wreath with a peace sign that some say is an anti-Iraq war protest or a symbol of Satan.

This sort of thing will always get airplay because almost anyone can choose to be offended by it.

When Pagosa Springs’ Loma Linda Homeowners Association committee refused to require that the resident remove the wreath, president Bob Kearns fired them all.


  1. Condo association rules do vary, but typically, boards have little power over what one puts on the door. Exterior walls & windows, floor & ceilings yes. The front door is external, but a wreath is so temporary that it hardly counts. And what the heck, X-Mas is already largely a co-opted pagan holiday.

  2. oops RT(Bleep)Ad. the Wreath is on a wall, not a door. still the argument that it was temporary was made by the now fired comittee. frem the article: ‘Lisa Jensen said she wasn’t thinking of the war when she hung the wreath. She said, ‘Peace is way bigger than not being at war. This is a spiritual thing.” I am getting tired of Home Owner Assoc. politcs.

  3. I had a discussion about Home Owner Associations this past summer and found myself unsure of where I really stood. The particular issue at hand was a homeowner who had a flag pole larger than allowed flying a US flag. Predictably, the Association was labeled ‘unpatriotic’ by critics. That’s not terribly fair, given that the rule had been in place for some time and the homeowner knew it when he purchased his house. I’ve decided that these associations are much like labor unions. They serve a valuable function but are often more harmful than good. You can’t get rid of them because they’re still needed for some important things and you can’t stand to have them around because they are a pox on humanity. Kind of like politicians.

  4. er Mongoloids? …don’t you mean Neanderthals? ‘mongoloids’ are essentially the Asian third of human races.
