The anti-LDS graffiti found on a seminary building of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at Highland High School this weekend affects people from every denomination, the head of a local interfaith group says.
"It affects everybody and all faiths suffer, I think, when one faith is attacked," Elaine Emmi, chairwoman of the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable, said in a prepared statement.
Salt Lake police said the vandal or vandals spray painted five or six comments on the side of the building at 2166 S. 1700 East.
The anti-LDS vandalism is uncommon in the area, Emmi said, and might be prank.
"They did something that was really stupid, and it does hurt other people," she said. "But I'd rather draw these people in and include them in a dialogue, than to separate them out and say, 'You're awful people."'
Police were still looking for the vandal Tuesday. Because of the extent of the vandalism and the seriousness of the comments, the person responsible would likely face felony charges if caught, officials said.
