Interfaith religion supporters recently denounced acts of vandalism on a Buddhist temple in Louisville, Kentucky. A local Buddhist temple was vandalized by culprits wanting to spread hatred and fear among the Buddhists in the area.  These acts are counter to the areas efforts to build acceptance and religious tolerance among the community.

The sign on the Phuoc Hau Temple on Old Third Street Road was vandalized with spray paint scribbling Buddha was “in hell” and “Jesus lives” spray painted on walkway leading to the temple.

The Louisville Metro Police are scrutinizing the situation but no leads have been made yet.  An anonymous tip line has been set up for community members to report to if they have seen anything related to the incident.
