Local community's website hacked by DAESH?

Apparently, a local protestant Pentecostal community's website was hacked by the Daesh terrorist group (IS/ISIL/ISIS).

A local church's website was apparently hacked by the Islamic State.

The ISIS propaganda appeared on the North Douglas Pentecostal Church's website on Saturday, which said "Hacked by the Islamic State, we are everywhere."

Despite the concerning website hack, the Sunday sermon at the church went ahead without a hiccup.

Saanich Police say they are continuing to investigate but believe there is no reason for concern by any of the church's members, or the public.

We are not just material beings, but spiritual persons with a need for meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that transcends the visible confines of this world. This longing for transcendence is a longing for truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty are called the transcendentals of being, because they are aspects of being. Everything in existence has these transcendentals to some extent. God, of course, as the source of all truth, goodness, and beauty, has these transcendentals to an infinite degree. Oftentimes, He draws us to Himself primarily through one of these transcendentals. St. Augustine, who was drawn to beauty in all its creaturely forms, found the ultimate beauty he was seeking in God, his creator, the beauty “ever ancient, ever new.”―Sister Gabriella Yi, O.P.
