Vandals and thieves are no friends of mine. Anybody involved in suppressing free-expression, the freedom of speech to freely express one's faith (or lack thereof), or any other topic, political, religious or otherwise, has proved to be aiding and abetting al Qaida, the Taliban, al Shabaab, and the extremisms of Osama bin Laden.
I am Gay, I a Jew-ish, I am disabled since Sept 2001; I do not share the same faith as the vandalized church, but under no circumstances would I support suppression of their free-expressions or subverting their rights to freely assemble and worship as they freely choose.
I will not babble-at-the-air (prayer) in wishful-thinking, asking some super-duper all-powerful alien sugar-daddy, hiding off-planet in an undisclosed-location to speak or protect you on 'my behalf,' and after the real work is done, the real sacrifices made to serve and protect you, claim my "efforts" were of "help," as al Qaida does. I know I have a discerning mind that distinguishes between what is real and what is fake, especially regarding real help verses wishful-thinking (babble-at-the-air).
Forgive me, I have no funds to donate, as I am on a fixed income. I actually feel a form of 'guilt' for that, as vandalism and suppression/oppression is a crime against all people, of all faiths and all political persuasions and lifestyles. And I know what a real wish is: knowing that all I can do is wish I could help, but recognizing my abilities and inabilities with a clear mind.
My spirit be with you. Shalom.
Kind regards, always,

PS: I am in Spokane, Washington, Spokane County, within the city limits of Spokane, Washington, state of Washington, country of the United States of America, North American continant, planet Earth, not "Moses Lake" -- nor have I ever logged-on to any computer device in nor around "Moses Lake."
-- whomever has modifed my posts, has an agenda against free-expression of faith; and clearly complicit or aiding the above mentioned hate criminals who vandalized that church.
Please fix it, ASAP.
Kind regards, always,
Clayton Leon Winton of Spokane, Washington, USA
