Indiana Church Graffiti: Another Fake ‘Hate Crime’ Busted

An intense, six-month investigation into the gay slurs and Nazi-like Trump slogans painted on an Indiana church has been busted. It was the church organist who perpetrated the crime, not some hate-filled, rabid Trump supporter.

Some of you may recall the 2016 case of the Bean Blossom, Indiana, church that was vandalized with spray-painted slogans reading, “Fag Church,” and “Heil Trump.”

The so-called attack on the church was national news for weeks and the church itself even left the graffiti in place for several weeks to show the world the hate that goads Trump voters to action.

But, as the Washington Post reported this week, local police spent six months investigating the “attack” only to discover that it was the church organist who perpetrated the crime.

Because he is a liberal and HE was the one so full of hate that he had to try and discredit Trump voters.

That’s right, the “crime” at St. David’s Episcopal Church was perpetrated by the church organist, Nathan Stang, a gay member of the very church that was defaced.

As the paper describes it, Brown County Sheriff’s deputy Brian Shrader, the officer who investigated the case, broke the news that he was onto Stang this way:

“Do you have like 5, 10 minutes you could walk out to my car?” Shrader asked. “Have a seat with me, chat for a few minutes?”

“I’ve spent six months on this case, okay? A long time,” Shrader said slowly. He took a breath and placed his right hand, palm down, on the armrest console that separated them.

“Based on what I’ve found in this investigation,” he told the organist, “you’re responsible for this.”

Oh, snap!

What made Shrader suspicious was the “Fag Church” graffiti. It turned out that the church performed gay marriages for gay couples very quietly. Indeed, it was done so quietly that during his investigation, Shrader could not find a single person in the community outside the church who even knew this fact.

So, who was so angered by the gay marriages that “Fag Church” became his taunt when the fact that the church performed gay marriages was not really known by anyone in the public? It made Shrader start to wonder if the graffiti was done by someone inside the church.

Shrader subpoenaed phone records and found that Stang’s cell phone pinged in the church on the day the graffiti was reported. Eventually, the deputy quizzed Stang and he admitted he did it.

Stang is gay. He admitted he did it to attack Trump and his voters because he was “scared” of Trump.

The mental case was nabbed.

Sadly, the Post feature on the crime reveals that Stang suffered no real consequences for his obscene crime. He got no jail time, and only had to perform some minor community service.
