Vandals attack Tennesse church, carving ‘666’ and ‘hail Satan’ into church altar

Church congregants in Tennessee were in for a big surprise when they arrived and found a number of satanic messages and symbols left by vandals. Intruders burned a page of the Bible, turned crosses upside down and etched “666″ in an altar, local news reported.

“The cross on the altar table was turned upside down,” church member Kay Williams told Memphis’ WREG-TV. “And a cross that stays at the front of the church was taken down and also put on the table and turned upside down.”

Lebanon United Methodist is a small church, reportedly with only about 20 members. Additionally the church ‘never locks their doors’ in an effort to encourage people to stop in and pray anytime they want.

The numbers 666 were carved into the wood with an upside down cross and also carved the words “smoke meth and hail Satan” on the altar and even burned page six hundred-sixty six inside an old Bible.

The attack didn’t seem to faze the church body with Williams saying “We don’t hate them, we still love them. Cause they’re a child of God.”
