The Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris nearly burned to the ground on Monday afternoon, while undergoing nearly $6.5 million in renovations.

Priceless artifacts, such as Jesus Christ’s Crown of Thornes and the Tunic of St. Louis were rescued from the flames.

As terrible a day as it was for Catholics the world over, not all was lost.

A French billionaire, Francois Pinault, has pledged at least 100 million euros toward rebuilding the church.

Pinault is a good man.

From The Sun:

Notre Dame’s most precious treasure, a relic venerated as the Crown of Thorns worn by Jesus Christ, is feared to have been badly damaged in the fire.

The Crown of Thorns, which is considered Paris’s equivalent of the Crown Jewels, is stored at the end of a nave of the cathedral, not readily visible to visitors.

It is encased in an ornate gold and glass container commissioned by Napoleon and is only brought out on Fridays during Lent and on Good Friday.

Video shows a cross lit up and still standing despite the fire engulfing the cathedral:

LOOK:

As you’d imagine, some people were pleased to see the church burn:

A man in “Muslim garb” was apparently seen at the cathedral despite the French media confirming no workers were present.

WATCH CLOSELY:

Fox News’ Shepard Smith, one of the most liberal personalities at the network, cut off an “elected official” who was speculating that the Notre Dame fire was intentional.

On a separate Catholic note, a fourth-grade boy was left in tears after being told to wash the Ash Wednesday cross from his forehead.

This is how educators act in 2019?

Where’s the tolerance for Christianity?

From New York Post:

A teacher in the predominantly Mormon state of Utah was placed on administrative leave after she forced a Catholic student to wash off the Ash Wednesday cross from his forehead.

William McLeod, 9, had just returned to his school near Salt Lake City after attending Catholic Mass when his fourth-grade teacher called the ash marking “inappropriate” and gave him a hand wipe to clean it off in front of his classmates, grandmother Karen Fisher said.

Fisher noted, “He went to see the school’s psychologist crying. He was embarrassed.

Save conservative media!

Virginia Democrats Take A Step Back From Gun Control Plan After Receiving Major Backlash From Gun Owners

Published

Democrats in the state of Virginia have discovered that a great many folks who make up their constituency are supporters of the Second Amendment right to bear arms after they received massive backlash from gun owners after unveiling their gun control plan. Now, in light of the all the criticism, Democrats in the state have decided to take a step back from the proposal. Check out the details from TheBlaze: Democrats will assume control of the Virginia General Assembly next year, and lawmakers quickly began submitting gun control bills that previously had little-to-no chance of passage. Gun-rights advocates statewide responded by forming “sanctuary” counties in which enforcement of new gun control laws would be de-emphasized or neglected altogether. Monday, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam and incoming Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw said they were adding a “grandfather clause” into the proposed assault weapon ban, which would allow gun owners to keep weapons under the policy that were already legally owned — as long as they register them. “I’m not going to lock up a large part of Virginia,” Saslaw told the Virginia Mercury, acknowledging that a grandfather clause would “make sense.” Gun-rights activists in Virginia are not letting their guard down after what seems like a victory, being well aware of the fact that the left will keep pushing for further restrictions on the Second Amendment. Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League said, “We’ve been down this compromise road and their version of a compromise is they never give up anything. We are expected to give up something every time and we’re not doing it anymore. I think gun owners are tired of this and they’re gonna stand up and fight this stuff.”

President Trump Set To Create New Executive Order To Protect Jews On College Campuses

President Trump has decided to take action against the rampant anti-Semitism that is rising up on college campuses across the country by signing an executive order designed to protect Jews on college campuses. The order will redefine Jews as more than a religious class, making them a nationality or ethnic group according to a new report that has been published by the Washington Post. Here are more details from TheBlaze: The updated classification will have a significant impact, allowing the government to consider anti-Semitic discrimination a violation of the Civil Rights Act. Specifically, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on race, ethnicity, and national origin. “There’s been a lot of unclarity surrounding the application of Title VI to Jewishness, basically, because of a question of about whether Jewishness is primarily a religion — in which case Title VI would not apply to anti-Semitic discrimination — or whether it’s a race or national origin. This EO will clarify that Title VI applies to anti-Semitism,” an administration official told reporters Tuesday, according to the Post. The New York Times reported that Trump decided to take action because Congress has long stalled bipartisan legislation meant to combat the problem. “Today’s executive order will have a real, positive impact in protecting Jewish college students from anti-Semitism,” Republican Jewish Coalition national chairman Norm Coleman told the Washington Free Beacon. The Post went on to report that the executive order mandates that the Department of Education use the definition of anti-Semitism created by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. That particular definition includes a bit that calls out folks who consider the existence of a State of Israel to be a racist endeavor, something that critics of the executive order have said will stifle the free speech of Palestinian activists who might desire…
