MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The 30-year-old man who vandalized six Buffalo, Minn. churches in September 2012 because he was angry with God has been sentenced.

Wade Edward Murray of Buffalo was specifically sentenced to five years of supervised probation and 70 hours of community service.

Murray was found guilty of breaking doors and throwing rocks through stained glass windows at six churches in Buffalo last weekend. Police say the 30-year-old also left behind offensive messages and posters about religion and homosexuality.

Police say he never indicated political motivations and it wasn’t related to the amendment, adding that this seems to be a guy who needs help.

Murray had already served 71 days in jail prior to sentencing.
