Idaho Man Bullied Into Removing Christmas Decorations

Jeremy Morris was recently urged by the West Hayden Estates First Addition Homeowners Association to remove the Christmas displays from his property. They said it would be insensitive to residents of different beliefs.

A letter they wrote read "I am somewhat hesitant in bringing up the fact that some of our residents are non-Christians or of another faith and I don’t even want to think of the problems that could bring up." The Idaho man has put up Christmas decorations that include thousands of lights, a 22-voice choir, a camel and a baby Jesus.

Then, in a letter on Oct. 26, attorney Scott Poorman demanded Morris and his wife take the displays down or face a lawsuit. Poorman added the noise and lights would be troublesome.

Poorman wrote, “Your event will be offensive to the senses and will interfere with the comfortable enjoyment of your neighbors’ private property rights. Your planned event will be a nuisance to the entire neighborhood.” Poorman added the camel needs to be removed because "it is not an ordinary house pet."

Morris responded by saying "Their real agenda is to attack Christians. This is about hostility towards people of faith. I have certain religious beliefs that I hold dear to my heart. We wanted to help people in the community and promote Christmas as the Christian holiday it’s always been.”

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, the First Amendment protects the right of Americans to erect religious expressions on their own private property. Morris does not plan to take any of his decorations down.
