SEATTLE (AP) - The FBI has launched an investigation after explosives were found on a church’s display supporting LGBTQ Pride Month in Washington state.

The Seattle Times reports a member of the United Christian Church called Renton police to report possible arson Wednesday morning.

Pastor Cynthia Meyer says explosives had been attached to the back of two doors in the display, and one of the devices went off.

The display features six doors each painted a different color to form a rainbow. The phrase, “God’s doors are open to all!” is painted on the doors.

Seattle’s FBI office did not return the newspaper’s email seeking comment.



Meyer says the vandalism marks the fourth time the doors have been damaged since they were put up earlier this month.
