On July 8, 2003 The Columbus Dispatch reported that "Central Ohio religious leaders convened in a Bexley seminary yesterday to denounce anti-Semitic and anti-Roman Catholic graffiti... About 80 people gathered at the Trinity Lutheran Seminary, where Christian, Jewish and Islamic representatives declared their solidarity and said their groups were uncowed by the messages sprayed on Jewish and Catholic buildings last week... Many speakers said they thought the vandalism should be considered a hate crime."
