Church attacks up 800% over 6 years

A new report from the Family Research Council shows attacks on American churches have increased by 800% over the past six years.

Between January 2018 and November 2023, there were over 900 attacks. The vast majority of these were acts of vandalism, but there were also more serious crimes – such as bomb threats and attempted arson.

According to the report, church attacks skyrocketed last year. There were over 430 incidents in 2023, more than double the year before.

FRC says it’s a sign of an American culture that is “increasingly hostile to Christianity” and suggests the problem will continue to grow if not properly condemned.
