A Baldwin, PA man says he’s taking a stand for his faith. Some of his neighbors say he’s just being obnoxious.

The disagreement centers on Carl Behr’s illuminated yard crosses, especially his giant, 25-feet tall one. Neighbors say the lights are blinding and want him to take them town, and the local city council agrees, having issued an order for Behr to remove the crosses on Monday.

But it’s an order Behr ignored and says is an assault on his faith.

“They’re not coming down,” he told KDKA-TV. “Somebody’s gotta make a stand against these people and I’m here to make it.”

“It’s been about the Lord since the beginning and if anyone tries to make me remove them, they will only anger the Lord,” he added:

The council says Behr didn’t apply for a permit, and even if he does, the crosses conflict with a just-passed lighting ordinance. If he doesn’t remove the crosses he faces fines.
