The official speculation from mainstream media is that it has something to do with the renovation work going on. That alone should tell you it’s probably something else. The odds of one of the most prominent symbols of Christianity burning in the holiest week on the Christian calendar seems like a stretch.
Who knows if the truth will ever actually come out. It is completely fair to speculate that it could absolutely have been done intentionally by someone or a group of people who may not share the Christian values that France once had as part of the West. Speculate all you want. And given that there was 875 of France’s churches vandalized last year alone it is entirely justified to wonder if that is the culprit here too.
Sadly, this is a very fitting image to describe what’s going on in the West right now. Christianity is under attack. Our values are under attack. The question is when will the tide completely turn and when will people start pushing back? And how hard? You can already feel the pendulum swinging back culturally a little bit, but it has a long way to go. It wouldn’t shock me at all if they discovered this was the result of Muslim terrorism, and it wouldn’t shock me at all if they completely buried that story either. There might actually, finally, be enough outrage to boil over and start to take back what is rightfully theirs. Paris is not the Paris you remembered even 10 years ago. It is completely overrun. That’s the same story in much of the West. And unless people start to stand up for their convictions, they will only continue to get bolder.
Of course, with any tragedy, you will have true scum who will try to insert their own agenda. Enter the worm that is Ben Shapiro.
Literally NOTHING about Notre Dame has to do with Judaism. It is one of the most prominent Catholic structures on Earth. There is no such thing as Judeo-Christian values, morality, whatever. It is a lie. A nonsense term. A Judeo-Christian is a Jew who converts to Christianity. Other than that the term is meaningless. Well, not entirely meaningless. The intent of the term is to obfuscate the truth. To somehow make it sound like Jewish values had anything to do with the building of the West. Ben goes into this lie in far more detail in the book he released last month which uses that term quite a lot. Ben Shapiro is controlled opposition. He is propped up to appear like he is an ally of “the right” when in fact he is anything but. I single him out specifically here because he is a charlatan and it seems like a lot of people on the right think he is an ally.
Christians around the world have a right to be upset and mad about what happened in Paris today. If there is any silver lining on this, it could be if Christians rally to start to fight back and stand up for what they believe in. To take back their faith from those who have infested various churches and fundamentally altered Christ’s teachings for their own nefarious purposes. The number of churches converged today is staggering. And if it ever does come out that this was a hate crime, it would do France and the West a lot of good to start expelling those who have no interest in Western values, and no intention of assimilating. Otherwise, if you let the wolf in the front door, you only have yourself to blame for what happens next.
