(CBS) — A local couple who claim to be Satanists believe they’re a victim of a hate crime and were targeted because of their religious beliefs.

Someone cut down a political poster stating, “VOTE SATAN” from their front porch where they live in Mountain View, a suburb of Denver.

“We are Satanists… Satanists,” said Luigi Bellaviste.

Luigi and Angie Bellaviste belong to the Church of Satan. They even have a Satanic Bible in their home.

The couple is upset because a poster they had hanging from their front porch was recently cut down.
