Racist Graffiti Spray-Painted on Church Sign

Aungelique Proctor, Fox 5, June 5, 2012

Meriwether Sheriff’s Office investigators are trying to find out who spray painted anti-white graffiti on a church sign.

It happened at Faith Baptist Church in Greenville, Ga., not far from Columbus.

Officials believe that the vandals were likely responding to the pastor’s views on issues like gay rights, interracial marriage and religions other than Christianity.

Southern Baptist preacher Billy Ball admits that the messages he put on his church sign are provocative, but he says they are all Biblically based.

“I had a message that said ‘Perverts loves perverts.’ Before that I had ‘Obama loves pervert,’“ said Ball.

“It had to be a white person that did it because we have been taught, and our job is to respond to the teaching, that no minority could ever be a racist, so I’m sure it was white people that did it,” Ball said, tongue-in-cheek.

Ball pastors 130 members of Faith Baptist Church in Greenville, Ga., and believes individuals should primarily marry within their own race and religion. {snip}
