Vandals paint upside-down crosses on Cathedral of St. Paul

| May 26, 2011

Five large upside-down crosses spray-painted across the main entrance of the Cathedral of St. Paul greeted maintenance workers Saturday morning.

Sunday morning, the day after the well-publicized Rapture predicted by Harold Camping, three sets of empty clothes and shoes — a man's, woman's and child's — lay on the front steps.

The Rev. Joseph Johnson, rector of the cathedral, found humor in the clothing, but he didn't find the graffiti so funny.

"The amazing thing is that in a century standing on this hill, this is the first time we've had such an ugly incident," he said of the graffiti. "It's one of the jewels that we share, so it's sad that someone would cheapen it."
