Coexist: Three Churches Spray Painted with Threatening Islamic Verses in Indiana
Three churches in Indiana were vandalized with spray paint. The graffiti was an Islamic verse, and not one of the warm and fuzzy ones:
olice in Columbus, Indiana, are investigating three acts of vandalism against local churches that unfolded Saturday night — a series of crimes that constitute an apparent first in the city.
But it’s the messages that were spray painted on the buildings that have some wondering if the acts were pranks or part of a more serious and pointed effort to deliver a message to Christian leaders and parishioners, according to WTHR-TV.
Consider the message painted on Saint Bartholomew’s Catholic Church. It read, “Infidels!” and included a Koranic reference: “Qur’an 3:151.”
That verse reads, “We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.”
What those responsible for the acts were trying to convey is currently unclear.
“It’s certainly not a warm and fuzzy verse. It talks about the infidels, their refuge being the fire,” Father Doug Marcotte, a faith leader at the church, told WTHR-TV.
Similar messages were also found at Lakeview Church of Christ and East Columbus Christian Church.
You ever get the feeling this is going to get a lot worse before it gets any better?
Yeah, me too.
