The Atlantic refers to the Rosary as an “extremist tool”

In a piece published by The Atlantic on August 12 titled “The Right’s New Bogeyman,” the popular magazine attempts to downplay the often-violent pro-abortion group called Jane’s Revenge by casting doubt on whether the group is “for real,” and questioning if the radical collective is actually behind the recorded acts of violence and vandalism they have taken credit for.


Just two days later, on August 14, The Atlantic published another piece titled “How Extremist Gun Culture Co-Opted the Rosary,” which seeks to argue that a number of “armed radical traditionalists have taken up a spiritual notion that the rosary can be a weapon in the fight against evil and turned it into something dangerously literal.”

It is also worth noting that while the current title of the piece is fairly nuanced, the article’s headline was changed on multiple occasions, previously reading, “Guns and Rosaries” and “How the Rosary Became an Extremist Symbol.”
