Three teens are alleged to have vandalized a church in New York. They painted Long Live Atheism in blue letters above the entrance to the Church. The crime occurred over the 4th of July weekend.
What were they thinking?
"The suspects not only burned the American flag but also spray painted slogans and symbols on the church which lead us to believe this is a hate crime," says Investigator Cindy Mullen of the New York State Police.
This is no way to treat our neighbors. We might not agree with them, but expressing contempt in the form of vandalism is simply unacceptable.
