NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL, PARIS: Started in 1163, the cathedral took two centuries to build. Read about this magnificent example of Gothic religious architecture @ the cathedral’s website:
RELIGION OF PEACE: On March 29, 2019, Qatari sociologist Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj Al-Ansari uploaded a video to the Al-Mojtama YouTube channel in which he gave a demonstration and explanation about how to beat your wife in an Islamically permissible fashion. SO good to know that Muhammad forbade hitting women anywhere on the head or face. Smacking is admirable, because women like “violent and and powerful husbands.” But the hitting must only begin after the husband has shouted at his wife (called “advising her”) and refused to sleep with her. Also, it must not leave bruises or cause bleeding. Aren’t we all glad to know that Islam teaches a man how to properly “discipline” his wife, because it is such a merciful and compassionate religion?
MUSLIM REFUGEES: The statistics in the chart are provided by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

MARIJUANA: It’s not harmless — “The studies are very clear that not only is marijuana addictive in and of itself, but desensitizes the brain to more harmful substances,” said Jeff Berger, the medical director for Guest House, a Michigan rehab center for priests.
