Kewaskum Dairy Queen in national spotlight for 'politically incorrect' sign

KEWASKUM (WDJT) - A sign calling a Kewaskum Dairy Queen 'politically incorrect' was put up about four years ago.

People in town know it well, but it was recently noticed by an out-of-town customer who posted it on Facebook, sparking national attention.

Store owner Kevin Scheunemann says, "I felt the sign was appropriate to hang in terms of being transparent about the views of the owner and staff supporting God and country."

The sign says 'In God we trust' and tells potential customers that employees may say things like Merry Christmas and offers free sundaes to Veterans on Veteran's Day.

"I just felt it was more appropriate to disclose these kinds of expressions," Scheunemann said. "It just seems that those kinds of values and principles are becoming controversial in society."

Scheunemann says the sign hasn't caused any problems in the past. 

But recently, someone visiting from Oregon posted it on Dairy Queen's national Facebook page to complain about it.

Since then, there's been some negative comments, but also a lot of praise. A man from the Cincinatti area drove all the way to Kewaskum to take a picture with Sheunemann.

Sheunemann says he's happy to accommodate anyone who may be offended by his love for God and country.

He says they just have to let him know before they visit, and he'll make arrangements.
