- Neil Cavuto of Fox New interviewed Bill Donohue on Monday evening
- Donohue started & # 39; suspicions & # 39; to share over tragic fire in Notre Dame Cathedral
- Reported several alleged acts of anti-Christian vandalism in Paris this year
- Cavuto urged Donohue not to speculate and eventually hung up the guest
- The cause of the fire is unknown, but the first reports indicate an accident
A Fox News hostess was forced to hang on to the President of the Catholic League after the guest began to roar about how the fire in Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris & # 39; suspicious & # 39; used to be.
Neil Cavuto hosted his show at Fox News & # 39; 4 pm ET hours when he broke the phone call with Catholic Federal President Bill Donohue because of his & # 39; suspicions about the fire.
& # 39; Well, Neil, if it's an accident, it's a monumental tragedy, & # 39; said Donohoe. & # 39; But forgive me for being suspicious. & # 39;
Donohue added: & # 39; Last month a 17th-century church was set on fire in Paris. We knocked down Tabernacles, demolished crosses, captured images. & # 39;

On Monday, a firefighter is battled at Notre Dame to fight the fire. The fire is investigated as a coincidence, although some Fox News guests tried to link it to recent anti-Christian crimes
Donohue apparently referred to a fire in March in St. Sulpice in Paris, whose investigators are confident that it is arson, as well as other vandalism in French churches since the beginning of the year.
Cavuto intervened: & # 39; We don't know that. So if we can avoid what your suspicions are. & # 39;
& # 39; I want to look at what happened now, & # 39; the host continued. & # 39; A very expensive renovation and renovation effort that involved a large part of the Catholic fundraising campaign that I know in this country and beyond.
& # 39; This renovation was paid for in the front. So, in other words, all funds were there. Now I wonder how much more the Catholic Church connects to this or do you think they want to reach its bottom first? & # 39;

But Donohue insisted on going back to his earlier point.
He replied: & # 39; First, they must come to the end and they will rebuild it. There is no doubt about that. They will certainly, the Catholic Church will get money for it, that is not even a question. I apologize. When I find out that the Eucharist is being destroyed and excrements are spread on crosses. & # 39;
At that moment, Cavuto stopped the interview. & # 39; I love you, Bill, but we can't suspect this, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; I want to let people know, and again we try not to be rude to our guests here. There is so much here that we don't know what happened here, & Cavuto continued.
The cause of the fire is currently being investigated, but the first indications are that investigators are investigating it as an accident that may have been caused during renovations on the road.
Cavuto was not the first Fox News host to speculate on whether the fire was intentionally turned off.

Hours earlier, host Shepard Smith had to cut off an interview with witness Philippe Karsenty, the deputy mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine.
& # 39; It's just like a 9/11, a French 9/11, & # 39; Karsenty stated during the interview. & # 39; It's a big shock. This church has been there for more than 850 years. You should know that in recent years we have defiled churches throughout France every week. Of course you will hear the story of political-political correctness, which will tell you that it is probably an accident. & # 39;
Smith protested that he would not allow such speculation in the air, but Karsenty insisted.
& # 39; No, sir, we don't do that here, not now, not on my watch, & # 39; said Smith, and ended the interview. & # 39; The man on the phone has absolutely no information about the origin of this fire and neither do I. & # 39;
