In 2012, the First Liberty Institute documented over 600 overt cases in America of “legal, social, or cultural” attacks on religion and infringements of religious liberty. This year’s report has 1,285.

Jesus told his followers to expect hostility, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise. But it remains a curious cultural shift. Do you think American Christians, who have tended to crave popularity, are ready for this?
