MARTHA MACCALLUM (HOST): You don't realize how much something means until it potentially might be taken away from you. We have a picture of World War II, American soldiers arriving in Paris right outside of Notre Dame, I think if we can put that up. And you know obviously Hitler also wanted to remove the faith as it existed, and that was restored by the Allied invasion, and I think -- 

JONAH GOLDBERG (NATIONAL REVIEW SENIOR EDITOR): Hitler wanted to burn Paris, remember? It's Paris burning. 

MACCALLUM: There are plenty of other -- yeah there are other religions who would also like to see these churches gone. So, it's historically so significant to realize that you have to fight for these things.
