Vandals hit Seattle's cathedral

Catholic World News - April 09, 2012

St. James cathedral in Seattle was defaced by vandals who spray-painted graffiti on the building on Easter Sunday morning.

Police are investigating the incident, and weighing whether it should be treated as a hate crime. The vandalism occurred shortly after the archdiocese announced plans to support a bid to end legal acceptance of same-sex marriage.

    But, is it a HATE crime? Really? Or just a moment's inattention in waving a spray can about? These things happen all the time.
