Anti-Christian Hostility Rising In US

Apr 30, 2024

Family Research Council Center for Religious Liberty Director Arielle Del Turco issued a warning Monday over rising anti-Christian hostility at home and abroad.

“International religious freedom groups are monitoring religious freedom conditions in the United States more and more, and it’s easy to see why. … Sadly, American culture is increasingly hostile to traditional Christian beliefs,” Del Turco told the Washington Stand. “To a large extent, we can all intuit that by browsing through a streaming service or scrolling on social media. But these cultural shifts are also having real-work impacts for Christians in America who simply want to go about their lives while staying true to their faith.”

“When Christian couples are denied a foster care license because their faith is at odds with gender ideology or fifth graders are prevented from starting an interfaith prayer club at school, these are critical reminders that religious freedom isn’t something we can take for granted — it must be defended. Thankfully, the U.S. still has strong legal protections in most cases and religious freedom is the victor in court more often than not. However, cultural support for religious freedom is in peril and we must be intentional about fostering that,” she added. (LEARN MORE: Biden Ignores Christian Massacres For 3rd Year In A Row)

What Others Are Saying …

“Basically, we are frogs in the kettle, and the bubbles keep coming up under us,” International Christian Concern president Jeff King told the Christian Post. “Too many people are not aware politically, and they’re so used to thinking of how things were that they can’t figure out where these bubbles are coming from, not realizing they’re being cooked.”

There were at least 168 incidents related to anti-Christian hostility or discrimination between January 2020 to December 2023, the Washington Stand added, citing data from the Center for Religious Liberty. (LEARN MORE: Iranian Christian Survivor Asks For Help From US Churches)

“As the mainstream culture moves further and further away from a Christian worldview, Christian beliefs that contradict progressive secular values are increasingly denounced by the culture and wrongly portrayed as being hateful or bigoted,” a report from FRC noted. “Although FRC identified fewer incidents related to COVID-19 after 2020, incidents that we identified of Christians facing discrimination for their biblically informed beliefs increased.”
