Christian Veteran finds himself target of discrimination

Bill Kriso returned from the war with a bullet lodged in his brain. After serving his country, and surviving, he felt he owed a big thanks to God.

“I thank Jesus. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be here today,” he said and decided to put a sign in the window of his home in a quiet Elyria, Ohio development that read, “THANK YOU JESUS FOR OUR NEW HOME

The management of the development has ordered him to take the sign down.

"People got signs in their windows. There's a Happy Mother's Day sign. There's all kinds of signs all over the place here and nothing is said," Kriso said.

He got a copy of the bylaws when he bought the house in January. It said that only "For Sale" signs are forbidden, WEWS reported.

The bylaws also forbid excessive lawn ornaments, of which he says his neighbor has plenty.

The manager wouldn't talk with the local television station reporting the story, on camera, but off camera discussions revealed that the case will more than likely wind up in court.

"They can have my sign; they can take it down over my dead body," Kriso said. "They're going to have to kill me to get that sign down. I mean that."
