Generous donations on Notre Dame sparked criticism in media and social networks


The general rush to do everything possible for recovery of one of the main religious shrines of the Western world gradually ceases: the pendulum began the movement towards cold realism Notre-Dame after the fire. Photo: Christophe Petit Tesson/Reuters "In the world children still die of hunger, and the European Union wants that we chipped in together for restoration of the building. I just do not understand" — not some unknown left activist, and a star of the Cup of Ryder golfer Thomas Peters writes. Change of wind was noticed by the international media. Attacks in the same party do Forbes, The Washington Post, CNN and other editions. Multimillion donations on Notre Dame promised to make several richest families of France and also a number of the large companies, including Total, Societe Generale and even Apple at once. Everything began with 100-million donation of Francois Pino to which his old rival and the competitor on the market of elite goods and services Bernard Arnault responded 200 million. As writes USA Today, it provoked critics: like, time money-bags are ready to litter such sums on an agiotage wave, they obviously have spare cash. So, and it is possible to solve more important social problems — enough to motivate billionaires, for example, having raised taxes. An additional question which raises including CNN — whether donations on restoration of Notre Dame when calculating tax benefits to megadonors have to be considered? Also politicians try to play on the return movement of the pendulum, but it is not always successful. The American senator and Donald Trump's competitor in a race for the nomination Ted Cruz tried to joke concerning donations of Disney: "Perfectly. Disney's princesses in stained glass windows will appear too?" Users of Twitter, as notes The Washington Post, cursed senator for tactlessness and called it a gargoyle. As for investigation of the architectural tragedy as writes CNN, short circuit remains the main version. Nevertheless, according to sources of TV channel, the prosecutor's office at this stage does not exclude any of hypotheses. 40 people are interrogated, but so far nothing indicates the criminal version. Meanwhile, as restoration of cathedral will take years, the rector of Notre Dame Patrick Shove suggested not to be idle. "We should not think that Notre Dame is closed for five years and all. Why not to construct before it temporary cathedral?" — quotes the priest of BBC. According to Shove, the wooden design will be beautiful and symbolical. It is reported that the mayor of Paris already gave prior consent to study of the project. And good news: following the results of survey of the affected building media report "a bee miracle". As it became clear, near pair towers of Notre Dame beehives were placed, and their fire did not affect. Beehives appeared on the Parisian roofs in 2013 within the program of the city authorities for increase in a biodiversity. And last night it became known that the fire was endured also by bees. The beekeeping company Beeopic reported about it in Instagram with a hashtag #miracle.Посмотреть this publication in InstagramNos abeilles de la Cathédr
