"Com. Grab your calls here in just a minute. Again, if you have been to Notre Dom the cathedral, which. His close to destroy. If you've been there would love to take your calls. I've been to the cathedral, and it is again, very moving and remarkable piece of architecture which today. Has essentially been destroyed again, I keep seeing the video of the spire on fire and then collapsing through the roof of the cathedral. It's just an unbelievable sight number. You're on Schnitt is eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine before I grab some phone calls. There have been a number of Catholic churches which have been desecrated and vandalized since the beginning of the year. Here we are on April fifteenth, and since the beginning of the year, January and February even Maher show all prior months there have been some incidents at Catholic churches across France. I wanna get into that here. Just quickly before we grab your phone calls. I found a Newsweek report from back in March at just talks about the spate of attacks against Catholic churches since the beginning of the year, vandalism arson. The folks there is nothing at this point to suggest that this is part of any type of attack or desecration. It's been happening Catholic churches. In fact, you know, the the guests is that it's something with the construct. Shen something with the restoration of the church that has been ongoing this close to a seven million dollar restoration project. The number. I see is six point eight million dollar restoration project partially to help fix cracks in the facade of the church and clearly. That restoration project is done because we're, you know, looking at the virtual destruction of this amazing building. So again, his nothing to suggest that the church in Paris that Notre Dom has been the victim or subject to arson or an attack. But. Yeah. Have to be able to at least understand that since the first of the year. There have been some horrific attacks against Catholic churches in the country vandals smashed statues. Tabernacles have been knocked down or destroyed. You caress toward down crosses. And there's a belief that there's for whatever reason an anti-catholic condition that's rising in France. But some have suggested that it might not be Catholic per say that it's a more holistic in that whatever's occurring with these attacks that it's more anti Christianity. As a whole in France versus just the target against the Catholics. You know, showing display any kind of anti Catholicism. But it might just be Christianity as a whole that these vandalise these vandals, I should say are attacking some of the details. Grabby calls here in a second. Some of the details back in March, the historic church of Saint soul piece in Paris that was set afire. In fact, I saw video before. Or the show. I saw some YouTube video of this. The church is a historic church of salt Sulpice in Paris, and the entrance was on fire as someone had torched the front door area of the church that was from back in March mid March when that occurred and that was after midday mass on Sunday there were no injuries there and Parisian firefighters investigators said it was almost certainly Arsim when that report came out back in March. Let's see what else some of the other churches. Also in February. Saint Nicholas Catholic church in north central France had vandalism statue of the Virgin Mary was found smashed and the altar cross had been thrown on the ground. That's according to a Catholic publication. Also in February the salt, Elaine on long or cathedral in in south central France, and altar cloth was burned their crosses and statues of saints were also smashed in the southern city of is it neem N, I N ES near the Spanish border vandals looted, the altar of the church of Notre Dom day enfold. So that be the Our Lady of the children, they smeared across in that church with human feces. He's so just an example of some of the desecration that has been deliberately occurring at Catholic churches with what has happened at Notre Dom today. There is nothing to suggest that this is any type of analysts again way too early. However, the fact that the structure has been under renovation and Notre Dhamma surrounded by scaffolding. Certainly it seems that the early guesses on some type of construction issue or some type of construction fire. I let's grab some of your phone calls again, eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine eight hundred eight zero one eight nine nine nine with a remarkably tragic day, this this is not just a horrific for Catholics, folks. This is a renowned structure. This is a tourism magnet. In fact, the fact that the fact that I have in front of me are about thirteen million people. Ye. Year. Visit Notre Dom. And if this is accurate it looks like only about seven million people year visit the Eiffel tower. So certainly a lot of people will look up in view the Eiffel tower, but those that actually get on the elevator and go up into the Eiffel tower apparently that number is roughly about seven million a year. Whereas those that enter Notre Dom about thirteen million years clearly that would make Notre Dom the most important tourist attraction in Paris as well. All right, again, eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine if you're Catholic as we embark on, you know, this the the most important holiest week in in Catholicism and Christianity and Easter Sunday and Good Friday will grab your phone calls. Let's start with Rhonda. Rhonda's in Punto Gorda in Florida. Rhonda. Huron Schnitt high. I am Catholic. And I'd also traveled to fedral within the last few years. One of the most important relics that is housed in the cathedral is the holy crown of thorns. That's why so many Catholics and Christians will go there normally the crown of thorns is shown that people can have a chance. To interact with it during a service normally every first Friday, but during lent. It's normally on every Friday, they have the opportunity to venerate that also pieces of the true cross. They're probably somewhere around two thousand reliquary which can be small for second or third class. Their relics of all twelve of the apostle not mention the art work and bone of all of the various saints all the side chapels, which the flame may have been reduced to ashes there is just no price. You can put on the loss of these relics for Christian. Rhonda. There's no doubt that this is a historic destruction. It is priceless. One can only hope because there were reports that there were people trying to save as many of the priceless. Artifacts inside and were the lower portions of the cathedral were they unaffected by fire for at least enough time where some of these artifacts were able to be pulled out and rescued and taken away from the building. Again, it's gonna take hours if not certainly a couple of days to really get an inventory and find that exactly what has been destroyed and what has been saved. But again, listen, I share with I'm not a Catholic. But I share with you just the pain and just the emptiness, you know, watching this famous place burn because I have been there. I've been inside Notre Dom and just like again, one of my favorite spots on earth is Saint Peter's basilica in Vatican City. It's just the the all to just get inside Vatican City and get inside these churches, like Notre Dom and Saint Peter's you. Just. It takes every bit to just really comprehend the awesomeness of the structure, the artifacts the historical basis. So again, I share with you. I mean, this this pain as well as the millions and millions around the planet. It is a tragedy for all of us. And I I hope we find that it was an accident and not just another issue terrorism. What it really comes down to because we see Catholics being attacked all over the world being murdered and killed. But we don't hear about it in Nigeria and other places. It's just insane. But I want I want everyone to just take a deep breath and reserve any judgment because construction and restoration and renovation were occurring with the vast scaffolding around. Notre Dom I did wanna bring up the fact that there have been a spate of attacks against Catholic churches around France. And of course, some will be very quick to jump on the Muslim tensions in France. Listen, it is way too early folks to assign any kind of blame Rhonda very informative phone call. And I can again, I can hear the pain in your voice, and the fact that least you got to go to Notre Dame in the last couple years. Let's grab let's stay in Florida grab Dave who's in. Sarasota, Dave, you're next on Schnitt. Hype? Hi, how are you wasn't an accident? I would like to think so. I guess I'm just very skeptical. I came out of New York area. I watched nine eleven burn. And everybody said what's going on? I look at a fire that occurs. Ten minutes after church closes, the Catholic ten minutes after church closes how coincidental. I mean. You you look I wonder who the workers are where did they come from in France. I don't know. Wait, we, but you know. Forty years ago in France. I went there fifteen years ago. I didn't even know what country. I was in Francis was eighty percent Catholic the Catholics were burned church down. I don't know. But it is very very coincidental. And I think that this has to go be take a look at and hopefully, it's not going to be politically correct valuation because it's very scary. If this was done by anyone with any ideas towards the Catholic church. I mean, we have to wake up and realize what's going on in this. And I saw that they were ten to fourteen fifteen churches in France. Have been desecrated since February. And you never hear the news here on these channels because people like MSNBC CNN and all they care about is destroying our president. Well on on the other day, they in all fairness, I don't think that I saw any of the reports of the church desecrations vandalism. I don't think I saw it on Newsmax which I'm on right now. Or I saw on Fox News. I just don't think I don't think he can. I don't think you can point fingers at CNN and MSNBC in this particular case, I've got my issues with some of those networks, obviously, and what they've done and how they present the news, and and certainly their editorial opinion and slant, but I'm just saying that the I was unaware, and I'm pretty damn inform. The amount of preparation I do on a daily basis Dave is immense and the amount of world news, local news, national news that I review and. I was on aware of the Catholic church vandalism in the issues that have occurred over the last couple of months in Paris again way too early to take a, you know, a guest here on what occurred again, the money would be on a construction accident. I get your suspicion. Again, the reports are that the fire broke out about ten minutes or so after the cathedral closed for the day to tourists. Listen, all you brought up everything you said is crossed my mind. The construction crews is there anybody nefarious on the construction crew that might want to set a fire was this purely an accident. Again, we sit here it is so easy to speculate. This is only hours old, and it's gonna be a while before we certainly have the investigation completed to figure out what it is. But trust me, Dave, everything you're saying clearly has gone through my mind. And I just think it's wise and prudent to wait for. For the actual details on what occurred. Dave, thanks for the call. Let's grab submit. Lana is in Cleveland. Ohio state. Lana you're on Schmidt hype. Hi, I just wanted to say this is against Christianity in general two years ago in two thousand sixteen on Orthodox Easter four orthodox churches across the country to in Australia one in Russia and one in right writing down how downtown Manhattan, New York were burned to the ground. And they were in the media for maybe two minutes before they just totally forgot about it. Nothing ever came up about the news never talked about it. Everything's just forgotten. This is just something that they're throwing under the rug, and it's happening all around the world. I remember the the Manhattan church. I do remember that story on the break. All the details on that church. Fire. Was that was that a young kid that set that now they never said they said it was too candles every candle, okay? Church has candles lit. And it just happened to be. I might be complaining that with an with an eye. I might be complaining with an old synagogue that burned in the New York areas..

"That Alexandria across your Cortez's green new deal is full of it. And we just think kept encountering the same kind of problems everywhere that we're related both to be the essential unreliability of solar and wind depend on when the sunshine and windows blowing which is ten to forty percent of the year. And then also somebody who are not as of which is the low energy density of sunlight and wind. And basically what we've been finding is that the the lower the energy density of the fuel in this case this online win the bigger the environmental impact, you just have to use a lot more natural resource including land generate very much electricity. So it's not very good for the environment. Was your point then you point to another form of energy that has a checkered reputation, but the you made a very powerful case for nuclear. Yeah. I mean, we were in the process of trying to figure out how to deal with things like climate change her even if you're not as concerned about climate change air pollution. Yes. We finally just had a number of friends who said what about nuclear, and we were like, well but nuclear is scary. And we had had all of the concerns that most people have about nuclear when I read about it all the accidents and was shocked actually by how few people died insure noble in most recent accident Fukushima scientists agree that nobody will die from the radiation that escaped and that too is explained by the energy density. So what we find is that biomass burning wood and fossil fuels kill about seven million people year from smoke. And so that smoke is just a function of all of that waste product being in the air people bringing it with nuclear even in the worst accident only a tiny amount of material escapes, and so the energy density of the fuel also deter. Women's just how much air pollution is going to be. So the people who wrote the green new deal and proposals. Like it must have consulted scientists before they did. And so they must know what you just said is true. Because it it demonstrably is true. So why why isn't nuclear part of the solution because they don't like nuclear. Because there's a Chinatown China syndrome. Even though it's emits virtually I think it doesn't emit any pollution. We come back AFC says that the invasion of Afghanistan was a mistake Afghanistan.
