Anti-Catholic and anti-Irish agitation increased in the early 1840s, organized in part around a perceived threat to the Bible in the public schools as well as the increasing numbers of Irish Catholic immigrants. Bishop Kenrick had objected to Protestant teachers' leading students in singing Protestant hymns and requiring them to read from the King James Bible. In response, in 1842 dozens of Protestant clergymen formed the American Protestant Association to defend America from Romanism. And in December 1843 a nativist political party called the American Republican Association was formed.
