    t

    The French government should return all RCC property to the RCC at once. Church descrecations are frequent and in every part of France.

    It survived too, assaults by Huguenot mobs:

    Rich Lowry | Notre Dame Cathedral | National Review

    "It survived the rampages of iconoclastic Huguenots in the 16th century, the depredations of radicals during the French Revolution in the 18th century...and incidental damage during two world wars in the 20th century. "

    Ugh!

    Déjà vu?:

    The Reformation in National Context: Iconoclasts in France

    "Iconoclasm was also a fundamental feature of the French Calvinist Reformation. Going far beyond the traditional, often anonymous and generally limited, gestures, of defiance of the holy power of images, Calvinist iconoclasm was far more aggressively desacralizing. Crucifixes were daubed with excrement and shrines desecrated."

    Whoever first said this, it sounds like a Yogi Berra comment. Referring to a North Jersey restaurant, he once said, "Nobody goes there anymore; it's too crowded."

    Thank you!

    Funny! I hadn't thought of that one for a long time. That does sound like the Texas Roadhouse here where I live.

    Trump said that about Paris in a campaign speech. I think that it is true because I knew a person who stopped going to Paris. Paris has 600,000 Muslims as well as a large number of communists. Canadian Lauren Southern did a video of the streets of Paris, which also is like parts of London:

    It wouldn't surprise me if St.John the Divine, NYC is not targeted. It is three times larger than St. Patrick's and much less security. According to the Verger of St
    John's Cathedral, security is seriously lacking.

    St. Paul's burned to the ground in 1666 with much of the rest of London.

    When I was a teenager, Catholic churches were open during the day and some never locked their doors so that people could come to pray. When I was a student at California Baptist College, I would visit an Episcopal church that was open during the day for a quiet time with the Lord. Those opportunities are uncommon or rare, though, and may disappear altogether now.

    I don't hate Trump, and I certainly don't hate Anericans. When we go to France, my wife and I always attend a church with an American pastor.

    If you were to go to Buckingham Palace, most of the tourists you meet will be Americans.

    Well, your May is something else. Trump has stood up for the decayed industrial sector and the working class of everyday Joes and that has angered the filthy rich, who statistically are Democrats these days.

    Don't worry, little buddy, New Jersey will vote Democrat in 2020 even if the Dems nominate Joe "Gee, your hair smells terrific" Biden.

    May is the wrong person in the wrong Job.

    But I think from your posts that you have a giant inferiority complex,

    Well, we could say the same about you and Trump. How about that?
