— Vandals struck buses at Fellowship Baptist Church two nights in a row, according to church members.

Someone broke into a church bus, at 515 Southerland St., on Wednesday night and Thursday night and stole a TV, DVD player and stereo.

The vandals also set fire to two other buses, members said. The church used the buses to take people to church on Sundays.

    You can't have a hate crime based on religion in this country, only race or sexually immoral character.

    I dislike people who destroy others property with no second thought.

    Well,I dislike anyone who destroys other people's property whether a second thought is involved or not.You can just about always figure where the uncivilized behavior comes from.

    They had nothing productive to do? I dislike people who destroy others property with no second thought.

    Its sad to think about all Fellowship Baptist Church does for Durham. By far they do more for this city than ANY CHURCH because of their outreach (the buses). I think all we can do is pray for these individuals im sure they will be caught and should then be made attend fellowship.

    Obviously this was a hate crime, why would somebody torch a bus with nothing to steal. So much for tolerance.

    i'm glad they like fire, because where they will probably end up, they'll see lots of it!!!
