So the Roof of Notre Dame Cathedral Burned: Who Cares?

I like cathedrals, and any other stone-built churches. To enter such a building off a busy city street is to experience a hush that can induce a truly blissful sense of calm. So, yes, if I lived in central Paris, I would be deeply saddened by the burning of this great church.

But otherwise, who cares?

The Maverick Philosopher asks pretty much the same question:
A Fox News commentator this morning opined that the world watched in horror [the burning of Notre Dame]. Really? The Islamic world? The leftist world?
So why should the world mourn the destruction of a church while remaining indifferent as the ruling elites systematically dismantles both the faith that that church was built to celebrate and the civilization constructed on the foundation of that faith?

Today, apparently, we are to view with horror the burning of an empty religious shell, while applauding the very rich familes that have come forward to repair the damage.
Better it would have been had those rich people offered their money to alleviate the hardships of the poor, or to repatriate the millions of aliens who the elites have invited in to replace the common people of France. Better both for the people of France and for the souls of those rich people*.

And to those who think that the burning of a Christian cathedral really matters, remember these words of the founder of it all:
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18: 20.
* That the chief donors, Bettencourt-Meyers and Arnault, are Jewish only confirms an absence of Christian faith and hence the unimportance of the church to the people of France.

Voice of Europe: 
Macron says Notre Dame should be rebuilt consistent with the modern, diverse France – and architects suggest a glass roof, steel spire and minaret
