Maryland church vandalized with racist message

SILVER SPRING, MD (WUSA9) - A sign advertising the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour's Spanish-language service was vandalized Saturday night in Silver Spring, according to the communications team at the church.

The sign was cut in several different places and the words “Trump nation. Whites only.” were written on the back and on the wall of the parish’s memorial garden.

The church is located at 1700 Power Mill Road at the intersection with New Hampshire Avenue, just north of Capital Beltway.

Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde of Episcopal Diocese of Washington gathered with church members and priests to stand in solidarity at the church in the wake of this incident.
