Anti-Muslim Hate Crimes Up 67 Percent, FBI Says

just a few points:

 

This was the first year that anti-Arab hate crime was recorded in the FBI numbers. There were 37 incidents and 48 victims. It was also the first year that crimes against Mormons, Sikhs, Buddhists, Eastern-Orthodox and Jehovah's witnesses were broken down.

The rise of hate crimes doesn't come as a surprise to John Cohen, an ABC News contributor and a professor at Rutgers School of Criminal Justice, as well as a former Department of Homeland Security official.

First, the country has become increasingly polarized and there has been a rise in the lack of willingness to engage in healthy discussions with people who may have different opinions, said Cohen. This polarization has been along political, racial and religious lines, said Cohen.

Thanks Sister Pam.

I liked this statement that was mentioned in the article:

"...there has been a rise in the lack of willingness to engage in healthy discussions with people who may have different opinions "

 

This helps give some insight into why certain people and even family today cannot have healthy discussions about religion, they just get frustrated at a different opinion.
