  • I hate HOAs, but:

    "It shouldn't be considered a sign. It should be considered my Christmas decorations," he said.

    No asshole, it's a sign. It's not even a decorative sign. It's just a sign.
  • Earth's procession is the reason for the season. Pagan ritual is the reason for the seasonal celebration. Christian usurpation of the pagan ritual is the reason it has any meaning for Christians, but that's quite a bit of after-the-fact meaning assignment.
  • This thread has the potential to be a variant on that old "how fishermen blow their minds" Far Side cartoon.
  • Well if you're going to go all Magritte on our asses, this is not an eviction notice.
  • And the meek shall inherit the Earth.
  • Surely it is a sign of the apocalypse ... I'm agreeing with the HOA.

    Get that farking thing out of my sight!
  • Ed Finnerty: And the meek shall inherit the Earth.



    ...which is,of course, why he should be meeker and adhere to the HOA bylaw.
  • Lsherm: No asshole, it's a sign. It's not even a decorative sign. It's just a sign.


    This. The guy's just using the season to give him a reason to break HOA rules, which, while they're as popular as VDs around here, are to keep idiots like this from doing what he's doing.
  • How else will the evil heathens learn about the silver bells and axial tilt and the pine trees and Santa Claus and California raisins and the Jesus and Blitzen and the Ghost of Christmas Present and egg nog without violating basic contract law? Also, there's usually a donkey involved.

    /Also this...

    Right. He only got religion so he can break rules.
  • Sorry Jackass, you wanted in the HOA, you got in, now do what yer told.
  • Geez... I'm in favor of The War on Christmas as much as the next heathen liberal atheist, but Jesus farking Christ on a cracker, it's farking Christmas... lighten up Francis.
  • Submitter here... I'm trying to get one of my friends who lives in that same neighborhood to put up a 2 foot by 2 foot sign that he wanted to put up (he says he's too lazy and doesn't want to get vandalized) that says "Axial tilt: the reason for the season". 

    I commented in the paper as well, asking: I wonder if one of his neighbors put up a Happy Hanukkah sign the same size as his, and put blue and white lights around it, or a sign saying "Merry Kwanzaa" or a sign wishing people a Merry Solstice, would he be leading the pack in requiring them to be removed?
  • Maybe Jesus is the reason the HOA will own his home shortly.

    Why would he? The HOA is requiring it to be removed. In general, people who run afoul of HOA rules aren't the kind of people who enforce HOA rules.
  • Why is it that the flamboyant displays of modern religion are always gaudy and hideous? Is there any religious person with a sense of taste anymore?

    At this point, the sign is still there. I'm asking a question, and I honestly would be interested in hearing the answer from that homeowner. Is he protesting against the HOA's restrictions, or is this a sort of "I'm Christian so I can get away with this" thing?

    I thinks it's more of a "I'm a Christian, and this is OUR holiday, and my god is bigger than your god, and I'm doing this as a religious duty - RELIGIOUS duty, mind you, so how dare you tell me I can't put up a sign if I want to" thing.
  • Jesus should have told you to not join an HOA.
  • MaudlinMutantMollusk: What Would Jesus Decorate?


    If you take one and staple it to a couple of planks, it looks fabulous.
  • Ugh.. Pushy over the top agenda driven religious assholes.. Just as bad as pushy over the top agenda driven atheists.
  • I'd put up a sign of Bastet and Anubis. Just because I could.
