ANSONVILLE, N.C. Vandals spray-painted "House of the Devil" on a wall, defecated on the pulpit and broke every stained-glass window at a church in North Carolina the worst-hit of several churches that were vandalized in the area.

The Anson County and Stanly County sheriffs offices along with the State Bureau of Investigation are investigating the string of vandalism, which occurred early Monday, NBC station WCNC in Charlotte reported.

The hardest-hit church Cedar Hill AME Zion Church in Ansonville east of Charlotte was in ruins Monday night as Ansonville Volunteer Fire Fighters and church elders tried to clean up a mess so devastating it left many church members in tears.

Spray painted on the building were phrases God is a lie and House of the Devil, as well as racial slurs and swastikas. The church's congregation is predominantly black.

Looks like there's plenty of hate to go around.
