Proclaiming ‘Jesus is Lord’ to mean jail time?

A borough government in Pennsylvania says freedom of speech does not extend to a man’s large “Jesus is Lord” sign, threatening the man with jail time if he doesn’t remove it, reports the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat.

Bob Foor’s sign hangs on the back of an old repair shop he owns in the heart of a historic district in Bedford, Pa. According to the paper, the red, flashing neon letters are three and a half feet high and stretch nearly 100 feet across the building.

“It’s something I believe. I’m very much a believer, and it’s something that I think needs to be there,” Foor told the Tribune-Democrat.

Foor erected the sign after the borough council denied him a permit. The local government says Foor’s sign violates three separate ordinances.

The American Civil Liberties Union is siding with the borough.
