An HOA has told a Raleigh homeowner to remove a cross from their family Christmas display.
KTRK-TV reports that James Faison and his wife have lived in the Mulberry Park community for five years. This Christmas, they put up a six-foot cross in their yard.
When the Faison family questioned the violation, the HOA responded asking for scripture to connect the cross and Christmas.
The Board believes that the Bible is very clear on the distinction between these two major events in Christ's life on earth. The cross is appropriate for display during the Easter season, but not as a decoration during the Christmas season. Unless biblical references can be provided noting the cross as a symbol of the Christmas season for the board to reconsider, the cross is not considered to be a Christmas decoration.
Whenever conservatives mention that liberals are attacking people of faith and the religious holidays that we hold dear to us we are quite often laughed at. The media tells us that it is being overblown.
This story, unfortunately, goes to show us that our fears are legitimate and if we don't keep fighting back who knows what the next thing to go will be.
