Is this the work of bored teens, dumb Satanists, or crazy fundamentalists? Someone has been spraying the numbers “666” on LGBT landmarks around Dallas. It’s not the first time LGBTs have borne the brunt of vandalism, but it is one of the oddest.
So far, there have been three targets: the Legacy of Love Monument, the Cathedral of Hope, and the office building where the owner of some gay nightclubs works. Weird, right?
Even weirder: if the vandals were trying to make a statement for Pride month, they got the date wrong. Dallas does Pride in September, just in time for back-to-school season.
Of course, there’s another possibility: some deranged queer with a victimhood complex, trying to get attention by making it look like the world is out to get us. Let’s hope it isn’t that, because life is hard enough without our own people making us look like lunatics.
Locals have very nicely scrubbed the paint from the landmarks, so hooray for them. Police are treating the incidents as hate crimes. Stay safe out there, Dallas queers!
