World Mourns Notre Dame.. But Not as a Church

Everyone by now knows of the terrible fire that engulfed and destroyed the roof of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris - the interior seems to have remained mostly intact based on reports as of midday today..

And many people including us feel very sad and sickened because of the loss of 900 years of history, art, culture and overall beauty which was represented by the edifice as well as all that was inside

An amazing 30,000 tourists a day would visit the site
Not too many in the secular media have really focused much on the religious aspect as if Notre Dame was just a place where famous Kings of France's past got married or coronated and now looked upon as a gigantic museum

And when there were reports of looting yesterday, the obvious was hardly reported in an honest fashion i.e. a church was looted

Not just a building. a museum.. a historic piece of architecture..

A Church.
Maybe because the secular media just can not stomach expressing anything Christian unless it involves molesting priests or fits a pro-Islam narrative.

Or maybe at least in Western Europe, this kind of thing is old hat and if they didn't bother much to report desecration or looting or burning of churches in recent past, then why make a big deal on that aspect at present.

For instance in February, vandals desecrated and smashed crosses and statues at Saint-Alain Cathedral in Lavaur, France, and mangled the arms of a statue of a crucified Christ in a mocking manner. In addition, an altar cloth was burned. 
Certainly no one in the US heard of it or probably cared to.. We didn't know

We doubt many French people did either.

In France, two churches are desecrated every day on average. According to PI-News, a German news site, 1,063 attacks on Christian churches or symbols (crucifixes, icons, statues) were registered in France in 2018. 

This represents a 17% increase compared to the previous year (2017), when 878 attacks were registered— meaning that such attacks are only going from bad to worse.
Among some of the recent desecrations in France, the following took place in just February and March:

*  Vandals plundered Notre-Dame des Enfants Church in Nîmes and used human excrement to draw a cross there; consecrated bread was found thrown outside among garbage.

*  The Saint-Nicolas Church in Houilles was vandalized on three separate occasions in February; a 19th century statue of the Virgin Mary, regarded as "irreparable," was "completely pulverized," said a clergyman; and a hanging cross was thrown to the floor.
*  Vandals desecrated and smashed crosses and statues at Saint-Alain Cathedral in Lavaur, and mangled the arms of a statue of a crucified Christ in a mocking manner. In addition, an altar cloth was burned.

*  Arsonists torched the Church of St. Sulpice in Paris soon after midday mass on Sunday, March 17.

Similar reports are coming out of Germany where four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone. 
In Germany as PI-News explained, "there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches... and recently also on cemeteries."

Who is primarily behind these ongoing and increasing attacks on churches in Europe? 

The same German report offers a hint:

"Crosses are broken, altars smashed, Bibles set on fire, baptismal fonts overturned, and the church doors smeared with Islamic expressions like 'Allahu Akbar.'"
Another German report from November 11, 2017 noted that in the Alps and Bavaria alone, around 200 churches were attacked and many crosses broken:

The perpetrators are often youthful rioters with a migration background i.e. "young Islamists." which is the scum that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and idiots like Frence President Macron welcome into their countries with open arms

A bit ironic that so many Europeans are crying over the destruction of history vis a vis the fire and are so disgustingly unaware of how they openly allow their nations' cherished histories to be destroyed every day by allowing people to enter and live and breed among them who really hate and despise them
In European regions with large Muslim populations, there seems to be a concomitant rise in attacks on churches and Christian symbols. 

Before Christmas 2016, in the North Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany, where more than a million Muslims reside, some 50 public Christian statues (including those of Jesus) were beheaded and crucifixes broken.

In 2016, following the arrival in Germany of another million mostly Muslim migrants, a local newspaper reported that in the town of Dülmen, "'not a day goes by' without attacks on religious statues in the town of less than 50,000 people, and the immediate surrounding area."
In France it also seems that where the number of Muslim migrants increases, so do attacks on churches. A January 2017 study revealed that, "Islamist extremist attacks on Christians" in France rose by 38 percent, going from 273 attacks in 2015 to 376 in 2016; the majority occurred during Christmas season and "many of the attacks took place in churches and other places of worship."

In virtually every instance of church attacks in Western Europe, authorities and media fearful of offending or angering that cult-faith, obfuscate the identity of the vandals and 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. 

Remember kids, 'Islam is Good.. Islam is Peace'..  That is what we're constantly told..  That was the narrative our government pushed hard down everyone's throats after 9/11 in Orwellian fashion

And if/when they're not good and do evil, then of course its because they have mental issues and in no way are representative of the overall billion or so that hate Christians, Jews and even each other if not practicing their bullshit belief system exactly as it was 1,000 years ago

So hardly anyone in Europe writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on Christian symbols. 
There is an eloquent silence in both France and Germany about the scandal of the desecrations and the origin of the perpetrators.... Not a word, not even the slightest hint that could in anyway lead to the suspicion of migrants... 

It is not the perpetrators who are in danger of being ostracized, but those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols with immigrant imports. They are accused of hatred, hate speech and racism.

So if it ended up that Notre Dame was destroyed by fire because of something connected to renovation or such, then it will be reported and analyzed freely and openly

If it does turn out a Muslim was behind it, good luck ever finding out
