Vandals deface Catholic church on Ash Wednesday ~ From that Leftist mecca of tolerance & diversity – the San Francisco Bay area:

A Catholic church in Union City was defaced on Ash Wednesday with spray-painted pentagrams and messages about Satan… Vandals knocked down a wooden cross… “Satan,” “Carpe noctem” and a pentagram were drawn on the walls, and spray paint covered the faces of a statue of Mary and Joseph, police said. Carpe noctem is Latin for “seize the night.”
“We need to remember to always counter violence and hatred with love and compassion,” said the Rev. Geoffrey Baraan.
