Re: religious freedom

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees you freedom of speech = the right to display your speech in a sign, and the Free Exercise of your religion. However, local communities have city ordinances about the size and nature of signs that can be displayed so as not to create a nuisance or eyesore for neighbors. You need to provide more specific information on where the property is located -- in a residential neighborhood or next to a commercial establishment. Also, you need to clarify if the agents who tear down your sign are government agents or working for a private firm.
