"Atlanta Gay Bar Targeted For Vandalism"

Early Saturday morning, vandals attacked Sister Louisa’s Church, a relatively new gay-friendly bar in Atlanta, Georgia. Windows and doors were broken, bottles smashed, and beer taps left running, damages estimated at $3,000. Owner Grant Henry explained that authorities believe “it is clearly a hate crime” because nothing was stolen. Nearby churches have complained that the name of his establishment mocks religion, but Henry is proud that he provides “a church where everyone is accepted.” Windows were fixed and drinks replaced and Sister Louisa’s was open for business again by Saturday evening.

Update

Investigators are now saying there was no indication of a bias crime.
