Pa. Man Ordered To Take Down 24-foot Cross In Yard

BALDWIN, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man has been ordered to remove a 24-foot illuminated cross from his front yard after a neighbor complained.

Carl Behr received a notice Monday ordering him to remove the cross from his Baldwin property within five days. But Behr tells WTAE-TV that he plans to fight the order.

A neighbor across the street says the large, light-up cross shines into her living room and bedroom. Lisa Fera says the problems started after she complained about Behr parking vehicles from his construction business in front of her house.

Behr says the cross measures his faith in God. Fera contends a good Christian would respect his neighbors.
