A church sign in Nashville is generating a lot of buzz, but the pastor says it's a misunderstanding.

The sign reads "Jesus had two dads and he turned out just fine."

Most drivers who saw it thought it was a comment on gay and lesbian parents, but the pastor behind it says it's a comment about how Jesus had two fathers: God and Joseph.

He says the reaction is a misunderstanding.

"Theologically, Jesus is the son of God, but also the son of Joseph," said Pastor Bill Campbell. "It's about children and people who grew up in homes, extended families, parents that are separated and having step dads."

The pastor never thought those 10 words would get so much attention, but he says he's hearing from people on both sides of the issue.

Pastor Campbell said it's all about how people interpret the message.
