Statue of Jesus Prompts Apartment Complex Dispute

MUNCIE, Ind. - A 71-year-old man is fighting the management of his apartment complex over whether he can keep a four-foot-tall lighted statue of Jesus Christ outside his patio door.A spotlight has illuminated Daniel Long's statue, casting its shadow on the wall of the apartment building in Muncie, Indiana.Complex manager Mike Desloover removed the light on Friday, but left the statue in place for now.Long insists the statue represents his personal devotion to Jesus and isn't meant to discriminate.But Desloover says the display could offend the religious beliefs of other residents, and he won't permit "anything that's not open to everyone of every race, creed, color and religion."
As in the days of Noah...
