With approximately 300 acts of destruction against Catholic churches since May 2020, hate crimes against them are on the rise. Biden and the liberal media have been silent about the worrisome surge. After the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked, more than 40% of those acts of vandalism occurred.
The 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling by the Supreme Court, which held that a woman had the legal right to end the life of her unborn child, was reversed by the court in the leaked draft.
Fortunately, on June 24, 2022, Roe v. Wade was repealed and this draft was made official.
The happy mood was short-lived as others on the left started to criticize the Catholic Church over the Supreme Court’s rulings.

The Catholic News Agency must report on a church being desecrated almost every single day. The once tranquil places of worship now have to wipe up vile graffiti and severe property damage. Sometimes it is obvious when language is being used to provoke violence.
Three vandals were captured on camera spray-painting pro-abortion messages outside the Church of the Resurrection in Lansing, Michigan, on October 8, 2022.
Spray-painting threats such “Abort the court,” “Death to Christian nationalism,” and “Kill all Christian nationalist” caused $15,000 in damages to the building and its surroundings. These ruthless individuals, sadly, are still at large.
The situation has become so critical that CatholicVote launched a $1 million advertising campaign against Biden in reaction to the Department of Justice’s failure to treat this situation properly.
Tragically, but not unexpectedly, these atrocities continue, and cries for assistance have been ignored.
