LGBT-Friendly Church Is Vandalised, So The Congress Gives It An Awesome Rainbow Make Over

920 0

Wedgewood Church in North Carolina is a gay friendly church that welcomes everyone and anyone to pray in their building.

However, the local bigots didn’t take kindly to this fact, and decided to vandalise the church, by spray painting gay slurs such as ‘Fags Are Pedos’ on the doors and crossing out the church’s sign.

But instead of being intimidated, the church decided this was the excuse to do some awesome decorating.

In a show of defiance volunteers painted the church’s entrance with rainbow colours.

If that wasn’t enough, they are also discussing changing the LGBT Equality sign that was defaced to one which reads: ‘We forgive you.’

Kimberlee Walker, a deacon at Wedgewood Church, told WCNC:

No amount of spray paint is going to stop us.”
