There are creeps in every neighborhood, whether they live here or not. The church, jus’ around the corner from my home on Mercedes Drive in Spanish Springs, was vandalized by taggers who spray painted their ignorance all over the sanctuary.
The vandals left more than 40 tags on the exterior of the Jesus Christ Church of Latter Day Saints, concentrating on the back of the church, away from street view and bright lights. It’s the second time in less than two month.
After seeing the damage, I offered to strap on my pistol and patrol the area overnight, but was told it wasn’t necessary. I was informed and rightly so, “We’re turning the other cheek.”
Sometimes, I’m not sure if I’m more of a Christ-follower or a Marine.
