It is not a scene in Game of Thrones, sadly, this is real. The Notre Dame Cathedral is burning down.
What an iconic image that is going to be in years to come.
Speculation by media as to the cause of the include religion-motivated arson. I’m not brave enough to repeat it here, because the current world-view is that Christianity is white, old men, and evil, and other faith systems are superior and beyond criticism.
Even if this tragedy is religion-motivated arson, I wonder if our current society and media have the courage to report it truthfully. Sources close to the event are blaming a construction-related accident.
Hands up, those of you that are expecting a message: “This is for Christchurch” to come from the usual communication channels in the Middle East?
