According to the Izard County Sheriff’s Department in Arkansas, the Flat Rock Church and cemetery was vandalized over the weekend with graffiti saying “666,” “Death to God,” “Satan Be With You,” a skull and crossbones, and (bizarrely, since it usually represents the Holy Trinity) “777.”
There was even more graffiti on the gravestones in the cemetery.
We don’t know who did this, whether they were trying to promote Satanism or just being assholes, but it should go without saying that this is reprehensible. One bright spot here is the sheer number of commenters on Facebook offering to help with cleanup.
Here’s hoping they catch and punish the culprits.
