A 24-foot illuminated cross on a western Pennsylvania man’s front lawn is in violation of a local ordinance, but the structure isn’t going anywhere, he told FoxNews.com.
Carl Behr, 45, of Baldwin, Pa., said he was told during a borough council meeting late Tuesday that he needed a permit to build the structure. He plans to apply for such a permit Wednesday or Thursday, he said, but won’t be disassembling his cross anytime soon.
“I’m not removing the cross regardless,” Behr said as to whether the permit would likely be approved. “No man is going to tell me about God.”
