Family Research Council's recently released report Hostility Against Churches Is on the Rise in the United States: Analyzing Incidents from 2018-2023, they identified 915 acts of hostility against churches in the United States between 2018-2023. Host Joseph Backholm is joined by the author of the report FRC's Arielle Del Turco and The Washington Stand's Ben Johnson to discuss the influences that have led to the increasingly violent acts being committed against these sacred places of worship. As these attacks become more frequent, Arielle and Ben unpack the motivations, the public's perception of these crimes, and how the courts have responded. It has been said that culture can impact politics, but what we are seeing here is that politics can also impact culture.
