A Buford church’s sign, which read in part “Satan made gays and transgender,” was covered in black paint between Sunday night and Monday morning, police said.
Gwinnett County Police responded Monday morning to the vandalism report at Back to the Bible Holiness Church on New Street in Buford.
The original text on the sign read: “God created man and woman. Satan made gays and transgender. Gen 5:2.”
Police said the sign had been up for about three weeks, and a representative from the church said the group had not received any complaints before the damage.
The passage in Genesis refers to the creation of male and female people.
