Anti-Catholic Hate Crimes Rose in 2011, Anti-Muslim Hate Crimes Fell

Quick gather your children and household pets, the sweeping wave of Islamophobia that is forever sweeping our nation still remains mostly non-existent. The FBI’s hate crimes statistics actually show a slight decrease in Anti-Muslim hate crimes, but a significant increase in Anti-Catholic hate crimes which jumped from 4.2 percent to 5.2 percent.

Anti-Protestant hate crimes rose from 3.3 percent to 3.7 percent. Hate crimes targeting atheists fell from 0.5 to 0.3.

It seems as if last year people began hating Catholics again. And one might speculate that this rise might have something to do with the ObamaCare debate and Obama’s assault on religious freedom.
