City Orders Residents to Remove ‘God Bless America’ Signs

5 October 2013   / 349 Comments   

 
Residents of a Florida city who have had “God Bless America” signs posted on their front lawns for months have been ordered by local officials to remove them.

MyFoxTampaBay.com reports that the First Baptist Church of Bartow distributed some 300 signs to residents following a Fourth of July celebration. The city only permits residents to display signs during major holidays is starting to crack down on the displays.

“Being a veteran, I felt like I was just kicked in the gut. I couldn’t believe it, that I couldn’t display my love for my nation by putting a sign up that says “God Bless America,” Bartow resident Marcus Seger told the station.

The city’s code enforcement division recently notified offending residents that its temporary sign ordinance has been in place for 13 years and already allows for some exceptions for yard displays.

“They can have those signs out on holidays that are relevant,” ,” Bartow Code Enforcement Director Gregg Lamb said. “You can have a temporary sign around Christmas if it’s related to Christmas. Or the 4th of July. The sign ordinance has exceptions for that.”

If people want these things to stop, they need to quit letting the nanny gov types in their local government. They need to quit waiting for someone else to help. They need to start running for local seats. From city council to zoning committees to school boards. 

We need to take back the nation one square block at a time.
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

That is correct... We need to go from the bottom up.. Not from the top down.
"Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future."
