A Florida youth pastor is apologizing after hanging a Nazi flag to protest new boating rules in his Naples community.

John Gursoy said he was upset after receiving a letter demanding he remove a boat with a two-stroke engine from the community lake after a recent decision by the homeowners association to begin enforcing a ban on them. He said, at the time, comparing the board to Nazi Germany seemed like a good idea.

Neighbors didn't agree.

"A Nazi flag! That is a sign of hatred and a sign of millions of people getting killed for that," said Megan Jerzyk. "I got out of the car and was trying to rip down the streamers. I said, 'This is just horrible that somebody has done this!'"
