AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – An Augusta church has been vandalized after its senior pastor and his fiance applied for a marriage license in Richmond County.

Media sources reported July 21 that vandals spray painted references to Bible verses and the words “You’ll Burn” on the front doors and steps of the Metropolitan Community Church of Our Redeemer.

Vandals spray painted a reference to Leviticus 18:22 on the church’s doors. The Bible verse says “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

Media sources report that Sosbe and his fiance were the first gay couple in Richmond County to apply for a marriage license after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide.

Weeks ago, a rainbow flay flying outside the church was also stolen.
