A D.C. Knights of Columbus chapter removed satanic graffiti from outside a parish on Capitol Hill this past Saturday.
On Saturday morning, Patrick Abbott, an officer in local Patrick Cardinal O’Boyle Council 11302 of the Knights of Columbus, received a text message from a fellow Knight. He was asking about an image that had appeared on the sidewalk outside of the church of St. Joseph’s on Capitol Hill.
“I took one look at the photo and said it was Satanic graffiti,” said Abbott. “I offered to wash it up and headed out to clean it.”
The image in question was an encircled white chalk pentagram, with the letter “T” in the middle and numbers and symbols on top, and the word “Lucifer” underneath. Two other words alongside “Lucifer” were not distinguishable, although one appeared to be “Jesus.” The pentagram has a long association with satanism and the occult.
