400 violent attacks on Catholic churches in US

CWN Editor's Note: The disruptive funeral service at St. Patrick’s cathedral in New York was listed as the 400th attack on American Catholic churches over the past four years, by the advocacy group CatholicVote.

CatholicVote estimates that the attacks have caused $25 million in damages. Only about one-fourth of the violent incidents have led to an arrest, the group reports.

The CatholicVote statistics probably understate the incidence of vandalism against Catholic churches, since many pastors prefer not to call attention to violent incidents.
