You just gotta wonder why there was no one there to stop them. Just incredibly boneheaded.
NORTH PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A holiday joke or offensive message? A North Palm Beach pastor didn't think anything was wrong with the message; however, others didn't agree.
"It was not really offensive, just poor taste," said Rabbi Alon Levkovitz with Temple Beth Am.
Humor lost on those who called the church demanding the sign be taken down. "I heard someone say, 'Christmas is easier to spell than Hanukkah'. It made me smile," said Butzberger.
"I think it's the wrong message to send to their members, but, as a Jew, I am not offended," said Levkovitz.
He says it is merely the comparison of faiths that is offensive. "If the church tries to celebrate one of the most important holidays by putting down another faith, it's definitely not the spirit of Hanukkah or Christmas."
