Postal workers in the southern Israel town of Ashkelon are refusing to distribute fliers published by a Baptist movement that offers potential followers to adhere to “the path of Jesus” if they seek to solve their life problems, Israel Radio is reporting on Tuesday.

The workers, many of whom are devout Jews, told Israel Radio that the fliers, 35,000 of which were printed, are offensive to their religious sensibilities.

The Israel Postal Service said in response that it is looking into the matter.
