Thou Shalt Not....Yard Art

We used to see these signs in yards all around town when Boise had a Ten Commandments controversy a few years back. Now, the signs aren't common - they weren't constructed to endure long-term outdoor exposure. I don't even remember all the details of the "controversy," except that I was in the news reporting world back then, and I encountered many rude people on both sides, or three sides, or four sides, of the issue. And when I did a "man on the street" segment, the average Joe wasn't aware of the controversy...when I tried to explain it, they didn't really care.

  1. I think your description is so funny and true. I knew people who looked like they would beat you to a pulp if you couldn't see how right their position was. Sad to say, but those were / are the so called christian right wingers. I learned not to look them in the eyes and back off slowly. :)

    Most people I know saw both sides of the issue. To his credit, Mayor Beiter worked out a good solution to the issue.


Thanks for stopping by!
