Maple Grove, MN-- A church in Maple Grove that has been repeatedly suffered vandalism is now looking for the public's help in identifying a man caught on surveillance video throwing eggs and writing racial slurs on the side of the building.

Members of Pilgrims United Church of Christ arrived on Sunday to find the church vandalized again. Two similar incidents occurred in the last month.

The incidents have coincided with dates and moments that were meaningful in the same-sex marriage movement. The Pilgrims United Church of Christ has been egged, spray painted and has had Vote No signs stolen.

They have found doors to the church handcuffed and messages that said things like "Gay Pride? NO! Shameful Sodomites!" That message was followed by a reference to Jude 7.

Police released the video on Monday and called it a "biased-motivated" crime due to the anti-gay messages. They said they are hoping that someone recognizes the man seen in a wheelchair.
