Influential evangelical group that opposes LGBT+ rights vandalised after Colorado Springs mass shooting

A sign on the property of the Colorado-based evangelical organisation Focus on the Family was vandalised with graffiti reading “blood is on your hands” and “fives lives taken,” an apparent reference to a mass shooting inside a Colorado Springs LGBT+ nightclub that left five dead and injured 18 others. The graffiti was covered with large sheets of plastic and cardboard on Thursday afternoon. It comes as a shocked Colorado Springs grieves the loss of five people – Raymond Green Vance, Kelly Loving, Daniel Aston, Derrick Rump and Ashley Paugh – after a person armed with an AR-style rifle fired into Club Q just before midnight on 19 November. A statement from a group claiming responsibility for the vandalism, shared by a Twitter account called colorado peoples press, said “we chose to proceed with this action because of the incredible violence that Focus on the Family continues to perpetuate” against the LGBT+ community.
