Graffiti tagged onto local church references 'wall,' says 'Islam or die'

Graffiti found at entrance of local church

The pastor and parishioners of a North-side church are asking why their building was the target of graffiti featuring words that appear to be politically and religiously motivated.

On Monday at Gethsemane Lutheran Church, the graffiti read “no to wall. Islam or die,” with a symbol drawn below those words.

The wall comment is considered a possible reaction to the proposed southern border wall by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The parish admits that they would invite the tagger inside for a conversation.

“If you have a problem, the pastor would gladly welcome you to come in and talk to him and help you in any way that he can. But he asks that you please respect the church,” parishioner Irma Decker said.

So far, the vandal has not been caught.
