Statue of Christ desecrated on Easter Sunday

A statue of Christ was discovered vandalized on Easter morning at St. Peter Chanel parish in Alpharetta, Georgia, north of Atlanta. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:

Pink paint was sprayed on the face and hands, and the $80,000 statue was tagged elsewhere with offensive symbols. Church officials believe the vandalism probably happened during the early-morning hours on Sunday; it was discovered by members arriving for early Easter services on Sunday.

The newspaper also reports that the pink paint was successfully removed on Monday (today). Read the full story or view the photo gallery.
