Attacks On Churches Are Up 800 Percent, But That Is Only A Small Preview Of What Is Coming In 2024 And Beyond


by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Anti-Christian violence in the U.S. has risen dramatically in recent years, but what we have seen so far is nothing compared to what is coming if the 2024 presidential election goes a certain way.  You see, the truth is that most of the violence being directed at Christian churches is being done for political reasons.  Whether it is accurate or not, many on the left consider evangelical Christians to be Donald Trump’s most hardcore supporters, and church buildings are the most visible representation of the evangelical movement.  Since church buildings are not guarded most of the time, they are easy targets, and they are being attacked at a frequency that we have never seen before in the entire history of this country.


According to a report that was released by the Family Research Council, church attacks in the United States have risen 800 percent during the last six years…

While the Biden administration cracks down on the Christians Democrats and the press smear as extremists, church attacks are up 800 percent in the last six years, according to a new report from the Family Research Council (FRC).

In February, the conservative group published the report, “Hostility Against Churches Is on the Rise in the United States.” It identified 915 acts of hostility against churches between January 2018 and November 2023.

There is so much talk in the mainstream media about “right-wing extremism”, but it is actually the left that has been committing acts of terror over and over again.

In particular, the number of church attacks absolutely exploded in the year following the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade…

The report found hostile church incidents more than doubled in 2023 compared to 2022, with 436 counted a year after the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision returned abortion lawmaking to state legislatures. The number of attacks in 2023 was more than eight times greater than those reported in 2018.

These attacks are not about what happens on Sunday mornings.

Rather, these attacks are all about what is happening in the political realm.

When a crazed woman walked into Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church and started shooting, it wasn’t because she hated his preaching…

A woman who walked into a popular Texas megachurch Sunday afternoon with a long gun and her 7-year-old son opened fire before she was killed by law enforcement officers on scene. The gunfire left the child in critical condition and another man injured, officials said.

Authorities are now probing the shooting at televangelist and pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church – roughly 6 miles from downtown Houston.

The woman, identified in a search warrant as Genesse Ivonne Moreno, 36, entered the church shortly before 2 p.m. wearing a trench coat and backpack and opened fire, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said in a Sunday afternoon news conference.

According to ABC News, when authorities recovered the AR-15 she used during the shooting, there was a sticker that said “Palestine” on it.

She was a pro-Palestinian radical that hated evangelical support for Israel.

Sadly, these sorts of incidents are becoming way too common.

We have reached a stage where every single church in America needs an armed security team, and things will inevitably become even crazier during the months ahead.

As I have warned my readers numerous times, we are entering the most chaotic election season in U.S. history.

The Lincoln Project is already releasing ominous videos warning that Trump will become a dictator, and hordes of liberal pundits are breathlessly telling us that another Trump presidency will be the end of America as we know it today.

There are millions of leftists that are deeply internalizing this messaging, and if Trump wins they will be ready for action.

recent New York Post article explained that if Trump is able to get back into the White House “some portion of the left will convince itself that only a color revolution can save the country”…

And if Trump emerges victorious and the alleged dictatorship is underway in earnest?

Certainly, the reaction will make the pro-Hamas protests that have roiled college campuses and disrupted transportation nodes around the country look small-scale by comparison.

If the republic is supposedly on the verge of falling, extralegal means of resistance are justified.

At least some portion of the left will convince itself that only a color revolution can save the country.

I wish that I could tell you that such claims are exaggerated.

But the truth is that leftists are already buzzing about a “revolution” all over social media.

And politicians on the left are certainly not helping matters.  For example, Bernie Sanders insists that another Trump presidency will mean “the collapse of American democracy”

A second Trump presidency would be much more extreme than the first. “He’s made that clear,” says Sanders. “There’s a lot of personal bitterness, he’s a bitter man, having gone through four indictments, humiliated, he’s going to take it out on his enemies. We’ve got to explain to the American people what that means to them – what the collapse of American democracy will mean to all of us.”

We are so deeply divided, and a movie entitled “Civil War” is about to be released as the upcoming presidential election looms over our nation…

The upcoming release of A24’s Civil War during a contentious presidential election year comes amid worry about the prospect of an actual civil war — or, at least, real-life political violence — and has some questioning the movie’s timing.

Talk about predictive programming.

The film is about an alliance of states that rebels against an authoritarian president that is abusing his powers.

Many are questioning the wisdom of releasing such a movie at this particular moment in our history

“The idea of another American civil war happening today actually keeps me up at night,” wrote one reader on an American Civil War subreddit. “This is a movie that I want to keep far away from. Even if it’s based on a political scenario so far removed from our own. I just do not want to entertain the notion of something so horrible.”

“A movie about a second American Civil War in an election year in which the second American Civil War is a serious concern among law-enforcement and rational people alike?” wrote another.
