A local pastor’s opposition to a planned Muslim community center has resulted to his home being vandalized for the second time this year.
The incident came shortly after the long-planned proposal to build a mosque in Bayonne, New Jersey was denied during a special Zoning Board meeting earlier this week.
Shortly after the special Zoning Board met for a heated, five-hour discussion Monday, rocks were thrown at Joseph Basile’s house windows.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
A New Jersey pastor’s home was attacked after he opposed plans for a proposed mosque in the community.
Pastor James Basile said rocks were thrown through his windows after a board meeting on Monday night.
Pastor Basile has signs against the mosque in his front windows.
Basile, a pastor at Grace Bible Fellowship, is convinced that the vandalism was due to his opposition to the Muslim community center, which was voted down by the special Zoning Board.
In January, Pastor Basile’s house was also vandalized with spray paint. While late last year, his wife reported that she was threatened by a stranger for the signs in their windows that read “Save Bayonne” and “Stop the Mosque.”
