a congregational church of all places? One of the most liberal and flexible churches in the country? Not only does the offender hate religion but he's / she's pretty stupid too.

You can't be surprised that an idiot who would spray paint 666 and upside down crosses on a church is stupid, are you?

With Deval's 9 million dollar teen jobs initiative for low class citizens these punks will be able to get paid to clean up the mess they made only to create a fresh base so they can continue tagging buildings when their jobs run out. How clever.

This is an outrage and should be heavily investigated! This is disgraceful and needs to be adressed!

Whoever did this should hang their heads in complete shame! If caught;I will donate my time to watch and make sure that these kids and/or young adults completely restore this churches appearance and other grafitti markings!!

These vandals need to be caught and held responsible; have them clean up the grafitti immediately! Ignorant people like this need to beadressed and I encourage all of Fitchburg citizens to hold these kids responsible.

I commend all the Hodges,the Mayor and others who have offered rewards and phone numbers!

After reading this article in it's entirety; I would agree with the Chief as it seems to be more than just a grafitti vandal!!

This being said, I believe that it enhances the possibility of capturing these vandals. Regardless their beliefs they do not have a right to deface any property!

This is a horrible display of ignorance! They must be caught and made to clean up their mess and other messes in Fitchburg or be sent to jail!

Zimmer,due to our differences that we may have politically; please do not disrespect my thoughts; Thank you!

I stand by what I stated! When caught I will volunteer my time to watch over these vandals to make sure that they erase Graffiti city wide! The physical building was negatively affected but the community as a whole has been negatively affected as well! This is not meant to downplay the damage to the church but to explain to you that it is the "behavior" that needs to be addressed as well as the damage to the Church and other buildings! The behavior displayed shows a complete lack of respect for another's property! This will not be tolerated whether it is a church or an abandoned building! The message on the Church was appalling and alarming as it displayed a personal directed message!

Please Zimmer,lets keep our political differences on other forums! You have great ideas. I just disagree with your view on the economy, we need JOBS! I fell into it. Please lets debate on other forums; Thank you!

I believe that you are a positive person. A little far right with a dash of entitlement but a nice person! Lets both give positive energy into finding these idealist and vandals. The Mayor and the Chief both are personally appalled with this behavior, lets all assist each other on this situation on a positive note.

Lynch you only offer to come on down to the church for the same reason every other politician has been down at the church they want a sound bite and to be noticed. That is all. If you really wanted to do good for the community there are tons of volunteer opportunities here I will even help you find some.

You should not do things because it makes you look good but for the real help it does. See this is where politicians or want to be politicians go wrong.
Things at the church a being handled how they should. Sound bites are not needed. Do something real for once.

Not out of my family! You have the wrong family as the Lynch amily brings positive change. We call it as we see it and not how the others want it to be said.

Some people would rather sit back and point at others instead of changing the same old same old. The regulars do not like to make the tough decisions. They would rather pull out the rubber stamp.

We didn't even begin to motivate.
