GLEN ROCK, NJ - An office manager at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church became concerned after a male in his 60s asked whether the church permitted "gays", police said.
On Tuesday, Christmas eve, at approximately 1 p.m., "the office manager at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church reported a male subject in his 60s entered the church and began to inquire about the church in a manner which became concerning," police said. "He began to question as to whether the church permitted 'gays' to be part of the church and made several anti-gay comments."
Upon leaving, police said, the subject left a box full of religious pamphlets near the front door.
The detective bureau is currently investigating this matter in an effort to determine if this individual is the same subject who engaged in suspicious acts at the Sikh Temple on December 21.
On Dec. 21 at approximately 11 p.m., police said officials at the Sikh Temple on Prospect Street reported "a male subject entered the temple and began walking around while behaving strangely."
While he did not make any overt threats, police reported the man wandered around the interior of the temple repeatedly stating they were doing a great job and making a “thumbs up” gesture. The man, who was described only as a white male, departed the area in a white Chevy SUV with “Jesus Christ is King” and other words in Spanish on the windows and bumper stickers, as well as an American flag.
