Looks like H.P.D. will need to M.O.N.I.T.O.R. churches in The Heights so stuff like this doesn't happen.

It's "Tithe" on Sunday, Not "Tag"

Just spoke to Pastor Russell Rodgers of Healing Waters Fellowship church in The Heights. Pastor Rodgers seems a little surprised to be fielding calls about graffiti right now -- and doesn't feel like talking about it, as he's on vacation. But he's well aware that his church, along with three others, has been tagged.

Today, workers at Healing Waters Fellowship, All Saints Catholic Church and two other Heights-area churches discovered graffiti on their premises. Sources at All Saints told KHOU that they believe they know who the culprit is; he left a calling card of sorts. Seems the tagger wrote his name, "Jonathan," and birthday on the churches, should there be any confusion. (What, no SSN? Damn taggers.)

Spraying a church is a low blow, and tends to be considered hack by more reputable taggers. But this particular "artist" appears to be a disgruntled homeless man who was recently turned away and perhaps not the next, er, NEXT. Police and the church staff say they'll be watching for him.

We're not ones to get all preachy about church tagging, but we think it's pretty obvious what needs to be done. It's time to go A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. on this cat, yo. — Steven Devadanam
