My efforts to get Verizon to remove Messianic Christian congregations from the Synagogues section of the Yellow Pages has been reported previously in the Jewish Community Voice of Southern New Jersey. Now, the Jewish Exponent of Philadelphia has picked up the story.
But Verizon is still taking the approach that ad dollars are more important than misleading Yellow Pages readers. According to the Verizon official quoted in the Exponent’s story, Verizon is not changing the categories elsewhere in the country. So I guess that means it’s ok to mislead people in parts of the country where they don’t complain to the chairman of Verizon?
