French Billionaire Pledges 100 Million Euros Toward Rebuilding Notre Dame Cathedral (Details)

THIS IS EVERYTHING!

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.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
