According to a blog post by State Rep. Kenneth Gordon, someone apparently spray-painted "U.S.A!" over a sign for the center.
“There is absolutely no place for this type of disrespect in our community,” said Rep. Gordon. “Especially on this 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s ‘We Have a Dream’ speech, we must stand together as a society and condemn these despicable acts.”
“I find it offensive that someone has used a reference to our great country as a tool to send a message of intolerance,” Gordon continued. “Anyone who understands what “USA” really stands for would realize it is a symbol of peace, inclusion and respect for people of all faiths.”
Gordon plans to attend the 1 p.m. service Friday afternoon at the Mosque as a show of support and asks community members to show their support as well, according to the blog post.
