DALLAS — A monument and local gathering place for North Texas' gay community has been vandalized.

Someone spray-painted "666" on the Legacy of Love Monument at the corner of Oak Lawn Avenue and Cedar Springs Road. The number is often associated with Satanic groups.

The Rev. Gregg Alan Smith, associate pastor at Oak Oawn Methodist Church, was one of the first to notice it.

"This neighborhood is resilient, and has gone through a number of different things," he said. "Something like this is not going to change it to anything other than what it is."

Smith also said he would welcome the vandal into his church to start a conversation.
