Pennsylvania couple told to take down Jesus sign because it’s apparently ‘offensive’

DCNFRobert Donachie, DCNF

A Pennsylvania couple was instructed to take down a Christmas display featuring a “Jesus” sign because it was reportedly “offensive” to their neighbors.

Mark and Lynn Wivell put some Christmas decorations in their front yard on Dec. 16. The centerpiece of their display was a sign with the name of Jesus Christ.

The couple was dumbfounded when they received an email from their homeowners association days after putting up the decorations asking them to remove the display. One neighbor even called it offensive.

“We know that Christmas was about the birth of Jesus,” Wivell said. “I was quite shocked it offended somebody, but I guess in today’s world I shouldn’t have been.”

The homeowners association said that it is not the content of the sign, but rather that the Wivell’s decorations were not in accordance to the association’s rules.

The Wivells have not been formally penalized for the sign, and they plan to keep it up through Jan. 15.
