Speaking as a Catholic here…please don’t donate to help Notre Dame. The Church is worth $30 billion. Donate to help Puerto Rico recover. Donate to get the people of Flint clean water. Donate to get kids out of cages. Jesus didn’t care about stained glass. He cared about humans.

I think you may be deliberately misreading this. No one here is questioning the value of the cultural heritage at stake, what is being said is that there is a very wealthy framework in place to take care of this cultural and religious heritage. There are others not as fortunate.

If the Catholic Church had any shred of integrity, it would donate the money donated to some of the people living in poverty and sell some of their baubles to their wealthier follower (who would take joy from their purchases) and use that money to fund the repairs.
