Anti-Gay Sign in Casper, Wyo. To Stay, City Says

Casper officials say an anti-gay sign painted on a homeowner's fence near a high school will be allowed to remain because there's nothing the city can or should do about it.

Chris Trumbull painted the words "Leviticus 20:13, To be gay equals death" on his fence. Trumbull says the message is the Bible's, not his.

Trumbull's property sits along a route between Roosevelt High School and the Boys & Girls Club where dozens of high school students pass every day. City Code Enforcement Supervisor Shelley LeClere says the city asked Trumbull to remove the message, but he declined, according to the Casper Star-Tribune.

Councilman Keith Goodenough says he didn't think it was the city's place to "draw the line."
