Florida Homeowners Group Tells Woman To Remove Virgin Mary

SARASOTA, Fla. -- A homeowners association told a family to remove a 3-foot-tall statue of the Virgin Mary from their front yard because it violates the association's deed restrictions.

Agnes Bambu, 80, placed the statue last year when she and her son, Anthony, and daughter-in-law, Dianne, moved into the home in the upscale Mote Ranch subdivision in unincorporated Manatee County. She had the statue in her yard for 19 years at her previous home in Pennsylvania.

"I don't think it's harming anyone," Bambu said. "She seems to protect everyone, look after everyone."

"This is an abuse of power," Dianne Bambu said. "The bylaws of a deed-restricted community supersede your right as an American citizen."
Yes, they do Dumbass. When you sign the little contract buying the home you may want to read it first.

It makes me wonder what happens when somebody from Cheektowaga moves into one of these communities.

You mean all those Cheetowaga properties with the lovely decorative style aren't already in HOAs?

I just thought that no one in their right mind would do that to their property unless some HOA board was forcing them to.
