Church van­dal­ized with pro-Trump racist mes­sage

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND -

Dioce­san of­fi­cials say an Epis­co­pal church in Sil­ver Spring, a heav­ily Latino sub­urb of Wash­ing­ton, has been van­dal­ized with a racist mes­sage that men­tions Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump. Jim Naughton, a spokesman for Bishop Mar­i­ann Edgar Budde of the Epis­co­pal Dio­cese of Wash­ing­ton, said the van­dal­ism oc­curred Satur­day night at the Epis­co­pal Church of Our Sav­ior in Sil­ver Spring. A ban­ner ad­ver­tis­ing the church’s Span­ish-lan­guage ser­vice was slashed, and the words “Trump na­tion. Whites only” were writ­ten on the back, he said. The same phrase was writ­ten on a brick wall in the me­mo­rial gar­den of the par­ish, Naughton said.
