The Rev. Kelsey Hutto, Episcopal Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, and Curry assistant the Rev. Michael Hunn at St. David’s, Bean Blossom, Indiana, where Curry celebrated and preached on Sunday to support the congregation, which suffered Election Night vandalism six months ago with spray-painted slogans like “Heil Trump” and “Fag Church.” Yesterday police arrested the church organist, a doctoral student in music at nearby Indiana University. He reportedly hoped to spur a popular uprising against the election results, and was surprised by national news coverage of the crime; another Episcopal church near Washington, D.C. was also vandalized the same night, causing worry and concern among Episcopalians nationwide. Three days after playing the organ during the Presiding Bishop’s visit, he was jailed on a misdemeanor charge. (screen shot from diocesan video)
