Give "Peace" A Chance!

I came across a story that deserves attention.

Apparently, Lisa Jensen, of Pagosa Springs was causing too much trouble when she put up a modified Christmas wreath in the shape of a Peace Sign.

As Bob Kearns, president of the Loma Linda Homeowners Association in Pagosa Springs states:
"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,"

But as Lisa herself stated:
"Peace is way bigger than not being at war. This is a spiritual thing."

As reported:

"The association in this 200-home subdivision 270 miles southwest of Denver
has sent a letter to her saying that residents were offended by the sign and
the board "will not allow signs, flags etc. that can be considered

The subdivision's rules say no signs, billboards or advertising are permitted without the consent of the architectural control committee. Kearns ordered the committee to require Jensen to remove the wreath, but members refused after concluding that it was merely a seasonal symbol that didn't say anything. Kearns fired all five committee

Never thought of Peace being divisive.

It is the kind of thing that usually brings people together this time of year. You know, loving each other, not having wars, and "turning swords into plowshares!"

Must be some kind of liberal plot I guess.

Kind of like when you liberals go bonkers at the thought of having a replica of the Ten Commandments in some judge's court house. What goes around comes around!
