A church property was vandalized with “Hail Satan” written in spray paint and other graffiti in South Carolina’s Upstate, according to WSPA.

Leaders with the Impact Community Church plan to make the Spartanburg County property the site of a new church, according to the TV station, and erected three large crosses on the site.

A Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office report notes deputies took a report of vandalism at the site this week. The report says a Community Watch member reported the vandalism.

One of the wooden crosses had the word “Jesus” spray painted on it, and another said “Sucks,” WHNS reports.

“Hail Satan” and a pentagram graffiti were left on an electrical box, the station said.

This isn’t the first time a South Carolina church property was vandalized with “Hail Satan.” Almost exactly a year ago police arrested three teenagers in Union County for carving the same words into a church porch.

A 35-year old man has been arrested in connection with about $30,000 in damage after vandalizing St. John's Cathedral Tuesday night in downtown Fresno.
