I've not seen this yet and hope not to see it..
However, it bears saying in case anyone has felt the urge to celebrate the loss of Notre Dame or any of the vandalism of Christian buildings in recent years.
We have all of us felt the hurt from being mocked, derided, harassed, threatened and likewise maligned by those who walk Paths other than ours. We have felt the sting of ignorance from those who don't realize, or have forgotten, that we are their brethren and sistren too.
And many of us have been weak and reciprocated that behavior to keep the cycle of centuries past going strong.
Let us mourn the loss of the splendor of Notre Dame with those Christians. Let's all work together to break this cycle.
We have enemies aplenty. Let's make some new allies.

Everything You Know About The Last Russian Tsar Is a Massive Lie. Here’s The Truth...."These members of the upper classes (and not all were traitors) were sponsored from the beginning by the West. The West considered that once its values of parliamentary democracy, republicanism or constitutional monarchy were introduced into Russia, it would become just another bourgeois Western country."
In this January 2013 article,he answers readers’ questions about the last Russian Tsar,Nicholas II, debunking decades of deliberate, slanderous lies coming from the media, academia, and governments of the UK, Germany, and America, but mostly from the UK.
For another excellent article debunking this anti-Russian propaganda which is so ingrained in the West, see his fascinating article about Rasputin, whom he sees as a hero, also maliciously slandered by Russia's enemies.
Western academics, like Soviet academics, are negative about him because they are secularists. For example, I recently read the book ‘Crimea’ by the British historian of Russia, Orlando Figes. This is an interesting book on the Crimean War, with many well-researched details and facts, written as senior academics should write.
However, the author starts out from unspoken, purely Western secularist criteria, that since the Tsar of the age, Nicholas I, was not a Western secularist, he must have been a religious fanatic, and that his intention was to conquer the Ottoman Empire. Through his love of detail, Figes overlooks the main point – what the Crimean War was actually about from the Russian side. All he can see is Western-style imperialist aims, which he then attributes to Russia. This attribution is a projection of his Western self.
What Figes misunderstands is that the parts of the Ottoman Empire which Nicholas I was interested in were those where an Orthodox Christian population had for centuries suffered under the Muslim Yoke. The Crimean War was not a colonial, imperialist Russian war to expand into the Ottoman Empire and exploit it, like those conducted by Western Powers to expand into Africa and Asia and exploit them. It was a struggle to liberate from oppression – in fact an anti-colonial, anti-imperialist war. The aim was to free Orthodox lands and peoples from oppression, not to conquer someone else’s empire.
