Commentary: More evidence that condo and homeowners’ associations lack equal protection of First Amendment rights for residents.

I can already see the condo association manager or overzealous Board member out in the hallway with a ruler and a calculator measuring a religious object to be certain it’s not larger than 25 square inches.
