Religious Threats Spray-painted On Legislators' Homes

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Vandals have spray-painted religious threats on the homes and garages of members of Minnesota's congressional delegation, targeting both Republicans and Democrats.

Representatives of Sens. Norm Coleman and Amy Klobuchar and
Reps. Jim Ramstad, John Kline, Keith Ellison and Michele Bachmann
confirmed the vandalism, which was discovered on Wednesday.

At the Coleman residence, graffiti on the side of the garage read: "U R A criminal resign or else" along with the words "Scum" and "Psalm 2."

The Bible's Psalm 2 warns "kings of the earth" against incurring God's wrath.

At Ellison's home, vandals wrote "scum" on the garage and scrawled "traitor," "resign now," and "Psalm 2." on the house
itself.
