'On April 15, 2019, a huge fire destroyed much of the beautiful medieval Catholic cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. Millions of people watched, in shock, live video feeds of the tragic destruction.

But what about the hundreds of other European churches that are vandalized and set ablaze each year? As Gatestone's Raymond Ibrahim reported in an article just one day before the Notre Dame blaze:

"Countless churches throughout Western Europe are being vandalized, defecated on, and torched. In France, two churches are desecrated every day on average... In virtually every instance of church attacks, authorities and media obfuscate the identity of the vandals. In those rare instances when the Muslim (or "migrant") identity of the destroyers is leaked, the perpetrators are then presented as suffering from mental health issues." '

brainbrig; //......... the utter idiocy of the clique on here who seize every opportunity to lambast Islam/Moslems//

I know of no one on AB who does that, but several are prepared to stand up and speak their minds on Islamic extremism which is a distortion of Islam, the representatives of which are the only people, as far as I can see, on the entire planet who are rejoicing at the destruction of Notre Dame.
erm can I go into Nigh mode and point out that the above is not about Notre Dame and posters should keep to the point
tiresome I know, and I try to ignore her ! joke joke

Good Friday and a good time for reflection - loss and renewal and also loss of physical things may not be reflected in loss of faith
( thoughtette over)
[ o god explanation time: physical loss is loss of Notre Dame, and ( damn forgot this was AB) loss of faith is the lack or denting of belief that physical loss causes. Faith may be strengthened. explanation over] sozza readers
Fair point PP and may I point out another one? Its a thing.....an old thing, a beautiful thing but still a thing. Children are dying for lack of simple food and clean water. Use things; love people. Matthew 6:19

But then again, a bit further on he said... ;
Matthew 26:11
> In those rare instances when the Muslim identity of the destroyers is leaked

Does that mean

a) that the destroyers are nearly always Muslim, but it's only rarely leaked, or
b) that the destroyers are rarely Muslim, but when they are it's nearly always leaked

Then enter it correctly, you earlier typed it in an insulting way, and it was corrected by a Mod, perhaps one will come along again and either chastise you (which is very unlikely) or at the best remove your post or correct it yet again.

a) that the destroyers are nearly always Muslim, but it's only rarely leaked, or
b) that the destroyers are rarely Muslim, but when they are it's nearly always leaked
c) It is a rare occasion for the Muslim identity of the destroyers to be leaked.

yup but no encouragement there to build and maintain huge and expensive buldings instead of helping the poor.

woofgang; So would you like Notre Dame left as a dangerous ruin in the heart of Paris and the restoration money added to the 4.2 billion - (£462,000,000 by Britain alone) already being given to the poor countries of Africa - with little to show for it?
