(Evangelical Focus)— According to the British charity Christian Action Research and Education (CARE), 445 churches and religious buildings in Northern Ireland have been attacked over the past three years.
On average, a crime against religious buildings, churchyards and cemeteries happens almost every other day.
The figures also show that attacks have happened in every one of Northern Ireland’s 11 policing districts.
CARE got the data from a Freedom of Information request (FOI) to the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI).
