"An Ohio man got a $500 fine for a zombie-themed nativity scene he set up in his front yard.
Jasen Dixon of Sycamore Township in Cincinnati first displayed his horror-themed twist on the traditional nativity scene in 2014, replacing the biblical characters with zombies. The zombies are inside a structure resembling a barn that the township says is in violation of local zoning laws.
`It`s an accessory structure. He doesn`t have a permit for it. It has nothing to do with what he`s got underneath the accessory structure,` Trustee Tom Weidman told Cincinnati.com. `He can put a hundred zombies in his front yard if he wants. It`s none of my business. The fact of the matter is the guy`s got an accessory structure in his front yard. Which is illegal.`"
Dixon`s isn`t being intentionally sacrilegious; the zombie nativity scene is a publicity stunt for his haunted house, 13 Rooms of Doom.
It`s not the size of the structure that`s got the bureaucrats` panties in a bunch; it`s the fact that biblical characters were replaced with zombies.
Zombie lives matter! Down with anti-zombie bigotry! The zombies will have their revenge, the Zombie Apocalypse is nigh!
