Florissant Man Told To Remove “Jesus” Sign From His Yard

Fred Bodimer

FLORISSANT, Mo. (KMOX) –  A north St. Louis County man says he can’t believe what he found in his mailbox — a letter from his subdivision committee telling him he had to take down his yard sign.

The simple green sign has a single word written in white…”Jesus”.

“What is this?  What kind of country are we living in?,” Michael Mayfield asks incredulously.

Mayfield lives in unincorporated Florissant, in a subdivision called Weatherby Place off Shackleford.

He says as a Christian, he proudly placed the familiar green-and-white sign in his yard as a declaration of his faith.

“And they told me I had to remove it,” Mayfield tells KMOX News.  “I mean it just shocked me to no end to even read a letter like this.  It spelled out ‘Jesus’, and that really captured my attention that they would go as far as to spell out the name ‘Jesus’.”

Mayfield says his sign isn’t going anywhere; in fact, he’s still deciding whether to put up more Jesus signs in his front yard. 

No response yet from the subdivision’s operators, D & I Properties.
