People do not visit Notre-Dame to pray

Re: “Notre-Dame reaction shows faith still burns fierce around globe”, Have Your Say, April 19

Paul’s comments make no sense. Anyone who has ever visited Notre Dame will tell you that the legions descending on this beautiful building do so for a variety of reasons, faith and religion certainly not being one of them.

Only a tiny minority pray there. The world’s noble reaction therefore has nothing to do with the fiercely burning faith in Paul’s imagination.

The letter makes another absurd statement by foolishly comparing Paris to London and New York. Did not the attack on the Twin Towers elicit a strong enough reaction for your taste, sir? And fancy Big Ben burning? Use some plain logic, please.
