Attacks on Christian churches have nearly tripled in the last four years, according to an 84-page report released by Family Research Council (FRC) in December.

“Between January 2018 and September 2022, FRC found 420 documented acts of hostility against 397 separate churches in the United States.

“Many cases included incidences of vandalism, bomb threats, arson, and gun-related violence.” [emphasis added]

How bad is it?

“‘The report documents one homicide, numerous arsons, bomb threats (real and fake), and a pervasive desecration of holy items. Vandals regularly smashed crosses, statues, and headstones in cemeteries; vandalized carvings of the Ten Commandments; set fire to a Nativity scene; and smeared feces on a statue of the Virgin Mary,’ according to the Washington Stand, FRC’s news outlet.” [emphasis added]
