CHICAGO -- (WGN) -- Police are investigating a possible hate crime after a disturbing message was spray-painted on an LGBT flag at a Wicker Park church.
Surveillance video shows the vandal armed with spray paint around 3 a.m. last Sunday at the Wicker Park Lutheran Church.
The Rev. Jason Glombicki said someone spray painted a black X on the blue, pink and white transgender flag. He also said that on the rainbow LGBT flag, someone wrote “we love kids,” in what may be a hateful attempt to link homosexuality to pedophilia.
The church’s neighbors may be more upset than the reverend.
One neighbor, Matt Cerney said what happened was disgusting, and not what the community is about.
