Late Tuesday night, Akureyri Church in Iceland was vandalized. Someone spray-painted vulgar anti-religious messages on the walls — and apparently did the same thing to a few other churches in the area.



Some of the messages on there — “Religion is slavery,” “God is a cunt,” etc. — suggest an atheist was the culprit. That hasn’t been confirmed by police. Needless to say, it’s a despicable act, whoever did it. Religious people have every right to worship in peace. There’s a way to voice your disagreements with their beliefs, and this isn’t it.
