KTLA News reports that vandals struck St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Reseda earlier this week. Police are now investigating the incident as a hate crime. An officer with the Los Angeles Police Department first noticed the sacrilegious graffiti on Wednesday morning around 8:00 a.m. At least 10 different messages were written across the church.
The sayings "Satan Lives," "Revolution 666," and "False Messiah" are just some of the sayings that were inscribed on the walls and doors of the church. The damage is estimated to be at thousands of dollars.
