A Baptist church in Hood River, Oregon, has revealed that it is constantly being vandalized after they featured a sign criticizing Islam.
According to Pastor Michael Harrington of Belmont Drive Missionary Baptist Church, their sign has been constantly attacked and even stolen by angry liberal snowflakes who feel that the church is being insensitive.
The sign read: “Wake up Christians, Allah is not our God, Mohammed not greater than Jesus.”
Earlier this year, K2 Live reported on the anger that many felt after seeing the signs. “I was profoundly offended and upset by it,” Eric Cohn a Hood River resident said to the local news station.
“Our church sign has a reader board and in the last 12 months we have had it changed nine times to read ugly, and sometimes vulgar things. Our letters have been broken or taken. We have spent over $450 in new letters alone,” Harrington wrote to the Hood River News editors last month.
“This last time was Friday, May 19. This is what was written on the sign: “God Loves the Sinner But Hates Their Sins.” They changed the sign to read (a vulgarity). They called my God a b**** and told Him what He could do,” he added.

He recalled an earlier hate crime in Oklahoma in which bacon was placed on the doors of a mosque so that none of the Muslim congregants could enter the building. “The FBI Homeland security, state and local police were all called in to investigate because it was called a hate crime. Our former DOJ made a law that said anything said or was done against a Muslim or Islam is a hate crime,” Harrington said.
In contrast, when Pastor Harrington called the local police to report what should be considered a hate crime, he said, “authorities responded saying ‘Do you have a cover that locks up the letters so they can’t take them?’ They implied that it was our fault they were doing this because we didn’t lock up our board.”
“Now someone had to come on church property (trespassing), break up and take letters (theft and vandalism) change it to ridicule our God and that is not a hate crime? Answer just one question: when if ever or what has to be done, short of killing a Christian, for it to be called a hate crime against a Christian?” he concluded.
