Family Research Council Reports: Hostility against religious liberty has reached an all-time high, and the attacks are increasing at an unprecedented rate. America’s First Liberty – the freedom of religion – is being pushed out of public life, our schools, and even our churches.
The Survey of Religious Hostility in America is a collection of more than 600 cases, detailing religious bigotry throughout America — most of which have occurred within the past 10 years. We invite you to view this powerful document that offers stunning insight into the attacks against people of faith across our nation, and we ask you to stand with us as we continue the important work of defending our most precious liberty – our freedom of religion.
