Attacks against Christian Churches Soared Following Roe v. Wade Reversal, Report

Christian churches were at the brunt of “pro-abortion hostility” since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, according to reports.

A new report published by the Family Research Council and titled “Hostility Against Churches Is on the Rise in the United States” stated: “Criminal acts of vandalism and destruction of church property are symptomatic of a collapse in societal reverence and respect for houses of worship and religion — in this case, churches and Christianity.”

“Americans appear increasingly, comfortable lashing out against church buildings, pointing to a larger societal problem of marginalizing core Christian beliefs, including those that touch on hot-button political issues related to human dignity and sexuality,” it added.

According to the report’s analysis of crime data, there were 420 acts of hostility against 397 Christian churches between January 2018 and September 2022.

The report noted the attacks against churches took place across 45 U.S. states and Washington, D.C.,

The report also documented 342 vandalism occurrences, 58 arson attacks, 12 gun-related incidents, 11 bomb threats, and 9 other incidences, such as threats, assault, and interruption of church services.

Between January and September 2022, there were at least 57 pro-abortion acts of hostility against churches, the report showed.

This is a considerable increase compared to incidents from 2019 to 2021, where five pro-abortion incidents were reported, according to FRC.

“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,” the report noted.

“This trend has continued since the Dobbs decision was officially handed down and Roe v. Wade was overturned on June 24, 2022.”

The majority of incidents were in California, with 51, Texas had 33 incidents, New York had 31, and Florida had 23.

Earlier this year, the pastor of a Catholic church in Katy, Texas, revealed his tabernacle had been stolen from the church overnight. The Catholic Heral reported it was unknown whether the theft was connected to a pro-abortion group’s recent threats to disrupt Catholic Masses on Sunday and burn the Eucharist.

Meanwhile, a Catholic church in northern Colorado known for its active pro-life ministry was vandalized with pro-abortion graffiti.

Hate crimes against Christians soared from 2019 to 2021 before dipping slightly in 2020.

“In 2021, the most recent year with available data, the FBI reported 240 anti-Christian ‘hate crimes,'” FRC said. “This was up from 213 anti-Christian incidents in 2020 … the FBI reported 217 anti-Christian incidents in 2019 and 172 in 2018.”

FRC president Tony Perkins said the increasing anti-Christian hostility resulted from American society moving away from its biblical foundations.

“As a former commissioner and chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), I’ve seen the warning signs of this gathering like clouds across the Atlantic,” said Perkins.

“As the mainstream culture moves further and further away from a biblical worldview, I’ve witnessed the hostility to moral truth creep closer to our shores. The West, once the safe haven of free speech and religion, is turning cold to our religious foundations that have helped us thrive,” Perkins continued.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
