The GoFundMe campaign has a goal of $1.8 million. Matthews was arrested a week ago.

The first blaze at the St. Mary Baptist Church occurred on March 26 in Port Barre, a town just outside of Opelousas.

A pretrial hearing in the case was set for July 17, with jury selection scheduled to begin in the trial on September 10.

Neither have commented on the black churches that were burned down allegedly by Holden.

Freelance journalist Yashar Ali, with 394,000 followers, struck a similar tone, tweeting that the Notre Dame restoration "will be well funded" and urging support for the Louisiana churches. That quick, generous response from around France and the rest of the world paled in comparison to relief efforts set up for the three Black churches in Louisiana burned down by a suspected white supremacist almost two weeks ago.

The three churches destroyed by the fires have mostly black congregations, raising authorities' suspicions that the fires may be racially motivated hate crimes.

Within hours of the tragic fire that destroyed much of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Monday, French billionaires pledged hundreds of millions toward rebuilding the worldwide treasure.

St Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said he believed his deputy was unaware of Holden Matthews' involvement in the fires.

But elsewhere in the United States, where three historically Black churches were burned to the ground in 10 days, fundraising efforts to fix and restore the damage to the historic structures there was proving elusive, at best.

Bishop Talbert Swan said:;This obtuse, gaslighting, doltish, nazi defending, white supremacist, poltroon is tweeting about the #NotreDameCathedralFire, yet has said nothing about a white supremacist burning down 3 Black churches in Louisiana'.

Meanwhile, it's also been noted that the campaign began trending on GoFundMe after the devastating fire that severely damaged France's historic Notre Dame Cathedral earlier in the week, subsequently drawing attention to recent church fires across the United States.

"There is a substantial amount of evidence, it appears", state District Judge James Doherty said before denying Matthews' bond request, keeping him in jail.
