A statue of jesus was smashed and an american flag burned outside a catholic church in brooklyn — in what cops are calling a possible hate crime.

The incident occurred around 10 p.m. thursday when an unknown person hopped the fence at st. athanasius church on bay parkway at 61st street in bensonhurst, police said.

The vandal pushed over a statue of jesus’s crucifixion, breaking it into pieces, and torched an american flag hanging outside the rectory, according to cops.

The church’s pastor, msgr. david cassato, noticed the act of vandalism around 8 a.m. friday and reported it to the nypd, the diocese of brooklyn said in a statement.

The nypd’s hate crime task force is looking into the incident.
