Woman faces fines for wreath peace sign

DENVER - 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.

Some residents who have complained have children serving in Iraq, said Bob Kearns, president of the Loma Linda Homeowners Association in Pagosa Springs. He said some residents have also believed it was a symbol of Satan. Three or four residents complained, he said.

"Somebody could put up signs that say drop bombs on Iraq. If you let one go up you have to let them all go up," he said in a telephone interview Sunday.

LSB: Give me a f^%*&king break! Is this how far our PC sensibilities have taken us? What about that quaint Christmas sentiment – Peace on Earth, Good Will to All? How is this equivalent to a sign that says ‘drop bombs on Iraq?’ Three or four residents out of how many complained? There are at least that many in every neighborhood that will complain about anything!

That's ridiculous. If I was that lady I would hang up a pentagram wreath just out of spite.
