SHOCKING DISCOVERY: Parishioners at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Anaheim discovered hateful -- and misspelled -- graffiti scrawled onto their house of worship this week. "Kill THE CATHLICS!" was spray-painted on the church. KTLA News reports that police are investigating the incident and that church officials planned to have the graffiti removed by Wednesday. Churchgoers expressed disappointment that someone would vandalize their church with such a hateful statement.
