The graffiti also mocked Jesus and maligned priests
Vandals desecrated the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Denver, Colorado, on Sunday with satanic messages shortly before the morning Mass.
The cathedral's brass front doors and stone columns were defaced with messages mocking Jesus, maligning Catholic priests as "child rapists," and claiming "Satan lives here," according to local ABC affiliate Denver 7.
In an apparent reference to the phrase that went viral on social media after gay marriage was legalized in 2015, "love wins" was scrawled on a nearby statue of Pope John Paul II.
A priest reportedly told Denver 7 reporter Patrick Perez that a witness submitted a statement to the police.
The cathedral basilica suffered similar vandalism in 2020 during the protests that swept the county in the wake of George Floyd's death. On the same weekend fires were set to the parish house at St. John's Episcopal Church, Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C., vandals spray-painted messages on church property such as "There is no God" and "God is dead."
The cathedral did not respond to a request for comment in time for publication.

For once they might be right
They’re not wrong...
But not a hate crime, right?
Might be non Catholic freepers if posts #3 and #4 are any indication
Like moths to a flame they burn out and perish.
No. Satan really lives in those punks, not the church.
I believe the RCC systematically interferes with the Gospel.
