    Saw the news. Terrible to see, or even hear about.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    Accusation and wild paranoia aside you know, that there was reparations in the part of the cathedral burst in flames KINDA gives a very probable cause, and it's not ''MOZLEMS'' even if Breitbart snaps their fingers and tell you it is.

    BTW, next time the usual suspects moans ''don't accuse people at once'', remember that the usual suspects INSTANTLY accused ''DAH MUZLEMS'' when the fire is still going on. Their MAGAhats must give them SUPAH-DEDUKTIVE-POWERS

    Maybe the french government is doing as a controlled demolition to make housing for more migrants!? Now that would be progressive.

    Why don't you tell me what you think I'm thinking!? We can make a game of it!

    Well sure, that was included in the unfortunate fire I listed.

    Not that the unknown has stopped some people from immediately assuming what best fit their agenda. C'mon guys, some decorum please.

    Going to assume seeing all the scaffolding that this had something to do with ongoing construction. But i wouldn't be surprised if there was some terrorist link.

    Given that it could be due to renovations it really does make you think of all thoses construction worker attacks.

    Seeing the comments that people have about these things is hilarious, and sad they hold the power to vote. "Why isn't there helicopters dumping water on it", etc.

    It's gone, there was never a chance of saving it. It's just going to be a stone shell left once all the combustibles burn.

    Very sad..

    Even as an atheist this is horrible. It's always sad to loose history. We have so much to learn from all of it, the good and the bad.
    Last time i was there was a few years ago with my wife.

    I aint a believer but I always saw Notre-dame as more than just a house of god, it's a wonder, it's art, it's as important to France as the Eiffel Tower.

    Glad I got to see it before it burns to the ground.
    See me for the stick up your arse, when applying for moderator. The stick is gratis.

    What reality? You don’t know the cause of the fire your just making baseless guesses.
