Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Possibly you didn't look very hard

Both your RT and your Newspeak articles clearly have their source in this article published in Le Figaro at the end of March.

Two high school kids set fire to an altar and broke some furniture. They got caught on videosurveillance.

Figaro, being a conservative paper, adds a bunch of numbers they got from the police.

The article from Libération puts the numbers in perspective : anti-religious acts reported to the police in 2018 : 541 antisemitic, 100  anti-muslim and 1 063 anti-christian (mostly thefts and desecrations of churches, which are very soft targets because they are almost always empty)

And here are some numbers from the Ministry of the Interior

But you are, of course, free to prefer far-right secondary sources to learn these facts which political crectnis conceals.

Is stealing from the collection box classified as anti-christian, or is it merely theft? From a conversation with the sacristan of S. Maria d. Vittoria, I gather that this is a serious problem in Italy.

The point is a significant rise of vandalism of Christian churches in France and Germany this year. Die Welt reported somewhat larger numbers than Figaro. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung confidently reported as well. Incidents like in Saint-Sulpice were far from petty.

Steve Pinker method of longitudinal and latitudinal data collection FTW?

I haven't got numbers for Germany, but concerning France, you didn't actually read the numbers, did you? Or maybe you did, and they didn't fit your thesis?

 

le nombre d'actes antichrétiens est stable sur l'année avec 1063 actes recensés (1038 en 2017).

Not enough finger pointing to prickle your (non-)focus, but I am done here.

For France, here are the figures claimed by the very right-wing Observatoire de la Christianophobie:

January 2019 : 66 antichristian acts
February 2019 : 48 antichristian acts

Projected over one year, that points a very signicant fall in 2019.

But don't let that bother you, since you're done here.
