Satanic Symbols Found in Local Church
MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. - Members of Lebanon Methodist Church called Madison County deputies, Sunday morning, disturbed by what they found when they arrived for services.
The church on Tige Hopper Road had been targeted by vandals. Members reported finding upside down crosses as well as the number "666" written on the Bible on the altar. Investigators said the altar itself had been carved with the number and the words "Smoke Meth and Hail Satan."
Investigators said there were no signs of forced entry and nothing was taken from inside the church.
Deputies are asking those who live around Lebanon Methodist Church and other rural churches to call about any suspicious activity.
