A Social Media storm continues after the Atlantic published an article saying that the rosary is symbol of violent extremism. On August 15th, The Atlantic magazine published an article that suggested the rosary has become a symbol of radical extremism in the United States. The article caused many Catholics to worry that this is anti-Catholic bigotry. The magazine later changed the article’s headline from "How the Rosary Became an Extremist Symbol" to "How Extremist Gun Culture is Trying to Co-Opt the Rosary." An image of bullets forming the shape of rosary was changed for a picture of a rosary.

The Atlantic is having convulsions over here with how fast they keep changing the headline of their bigoted Rosary attack article. The latest edition also dropped the disgraceful 'bullethole rosary' graphic pic.twitter.com/rpCFFAUFmF— Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) August 15, 2022
