Hostility toward religious liberty is on the rise.
It got significantly worse in 2022.
And Democrats’ insane reaction to one Supreme Court decision left Christians speechless.
The Supreme Court’s ruling in the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade and returned abortion to the individual states set off a firestorm on the Left.
Not only did the corporate-controlled press go berserk, but activists did as well.
Democratic foot soldiers protested outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices, and the more radical elements of the Left attacked churches and crisis pregnancy centers.
And the statistics bear that out.
The Family Research Council reported that it “analyzed publicly available data from the past five years to determine whether there has been a statistically significant increase in acts of hostility against churches in the United States over time. Between January 2018 and September 2022, at least 420 acts of hostility against U.S. churches occurred. The types of acts identified include vandalism, arson, gun-related incidents, bomb threats, and more. There also appeared to be an increase in frequency over the course of the reporting period. This increase in religious hostility should not be taken lightly. Such acts are destructive and have the potential to intimidate a religious community. Therefore, they deserve to be condemned.”
There was a marked increase in attacks after Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in the Dobbs decision was leaked in early May.
FRC added that when the “U.S. Supreme Court’s draft decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked on May 2, 2022, churches saw a spike in graffiti incidents with pro-abortion messages and protests that interrupted church services. This trend has continued since the Dobbs decision was officially handed down and Roe v. Wade was overturned on June 24, 2022. At least 57 incidents from January 2022 to September 2022 were directly tied to pro-abortion protests or contained pro-abortion messages. By contrast, only five incidents between 2019 and 2021 were abortion-related.”
As the graph shows, the attacks increased exponentially after May.
Dozens of crisis pregnancy centers have been graffitied and even firebombed, yet the FBI has been dragging its feet on investigating and prosecuting the criminal acts.
That shouldn’t come as a surprise considering Attorney General Merrick Garland released a shockingly partisan statement undermining state abortion laws and attitudes.
Attempting to stop the Democrats from killing babies comes with consequences.
