Fox News stopped two guests from vocalizing a very real pattern of church destruction in France.
Two separate Fox News hosts inexplicably ended interviews with guests who brought up the fact that there has been a pattern of church fires in France.
“You need to know that for the past year we’ve had churches desecrated each and every week in France – all over France,” French politician Philippe Kersenty told Fox’s Shep Smith. “The politically correct will try to tell you this is an accident – ”
“Sir, sir, sir – we’re not going to speculate here of the cause of something that we don’t know,” he said. “If you have observations, or you know something, we would love to hear it.”
Kersenty attempted to proceed with his observations, but Smith hung up on him.
Later, host Neil Cavuto did the same to his own guest.
“Well, Neil, if it is an accident it’s a monumental tragedy,” said Catholic League President Bill Donohue. “Just last month a 17th Century church was set on fire in Paris. We’ve seen tabernacles knocked down, crosses have been knocked down. Statues have been – ”
Donahue, too, was interrupted.
“Bill, we don’t know that,” Cavuto said. “We don’t know.”
Cavuto filibustered for a whole minute before letting Donahue speak again.
“I’m sorry, I mean when I find out the eucharist is being destroyed and human excrement is being smeared on crosses – this is going on now – ” Donohue said.
Cavuto interrupted again.
“Wait a minute, Bill, wait a minute,” Cavuto said. “I love you, Bill, but we cannot make conjectures about this.”
He then hung up on Donahue.
Neither guest suggested the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral was set intentionally. They both simply noted a pattern of the destruction of churches in France.
Earlier Monday, Big League Politics reported on the reality that 10 churches in France were attacked in a single week:
In February 10 churches in France were attacked in one week, causing some to fear increasing religious tensions in the migrant-friendly country.
The attacks, allegedly sponsored by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, saw 5 churches vandalized, attacked, or damaged in a one week span.
Roman Catholic publication La Croix International first reported that four churches were vandalized in a week period in February. The first church to be vandalized was in Houilles, France on February 4 at the church of St. Nicholas, where a statue of Mary was found broken into pieces.
Why would Fox News stop its guests from addressing this reality on air?
