The FBI has released the 2010 Hate Crimes Statistics. There is something startling within those statistics, that is if you actually believe the rot pushed out by the Roman Catholic Church. Of the incidents of hate crimes, the top three- in order- are racist, anti-regligious, homophobic.
What they found was that:
47.3 percent were racially motivated.
20.0 percent were motivated by religious bias.
19.3 percent resulted from sexual-orientation bias.
12.8 percent stemmed from ethnicity/national origin bias.
0.6 percent were prompted by disability bias.
With regards to the anti-religious hate crimes, the breakdown follows:
65.4 percent were anti-Jewish.
13.2 percent were anti-Islamic.
9.5 percent were anti-other religion, i.e., those not specified.
4.3 percent were anti-Catholic.
3.8 percent were anti-multiple religions, group.
3.3 percent were anti-Protestant.
0.5 percent were anti-Atheism/Agnosticism/etc
What that means is that 4.3% of 20% were anti-Catholic. In fact, taking it as a whole, only 7.6% of 20% are anti-Christian. So, roughly 1.5% of all hate crimes in the United States in 2010 were against Christians while 19% were against gays. That means that lesbians, gays, and bisexuals were more than twelve times likely to be the victim of a hate crime than a Christian. This, basically, means that the Christians are not being persecuted in any way.
To further breakdown the numbers, the bulk of the anti-gay crimes were against gay men:
57.9 percent were classified as anti-male homosexual bias.
27.4 percent were reported as anti-homosexual bias.
11.4 percent were prompted by an anti-female homosexual bias.
1.4 percent were the result of an anti-heterosexual bias.
1.9 percent were classified as anti-bisexual bias.
And finally, among the racially motivated crimes, the largest numbers were against Blacks:
69.8 percent were motivated by anti-black bias.
18.2 percent stemmed from anti-white bias.
5.7 percent were a result of bias against groups of individuals consisting of more than one race (anti-multiple races, group).
5.1 percent resulted from anti-Asian/Pacific Islander bias.
1.2 percent were motivated by anti-American Indian/Alaskan Native bias.
Approximately 32% of all hate crimes were against Blacks.
What this data shows is that the supposed oppression or suppression of Christians is not occurring. Instead, it is rather clear that the people who are bearing the brunt of the battle between the LGBT Community and the Christians is the LGBT Community.
