    Would it be fair to say that the Cathedral of Notre Dame is the second most significant (or important) Roman Catholic Church in the world - second to St Peter's in Rome?

    What about the Church of the Holy Sepulchre?

    What would be the top five?

    What would be the ramifications if an Islamic terror group claimed "credit" for starting the current fire?

    Oy woy! Don't even want to think about it.

    I hope it was an accident. If it was terrorism, we might end up with another war.

    Notre Dame is Notre Dame. Unique. A burning jewel - a burning instrument in the concert of the houses of god.

    France: You are not alone.

    Ya know, sometimes, shit just happens.

    Its a loss for all of humanity. Doesn't have to be anything nefarious about it.


    Though, I'm going to laugh if someone makes a Quasimodo meme of, "Will ring bells for food".

    Yeah, I'm an asshole and going to hell...

    Regardless of whether it was deliberate or not Notradam should be rebuilt but keeping an even standard or playing field so should the temple in Israel...So many of you see things through rose coloured glasses... UNESCO is upset , the world is upset and money will be raised and the effort will be given and it will be restored but no new temple for Israel and the Jews and even if we do finally rebuild it how many of you and others will be up in arms against it because of mistaken religious beliefs or ideologies.. Most of the world should be clamouring to rebuild it just to right past wrongs and yet we know how the Unesco of the world feel deep down..... Meanwhile Israel gives freely to all of you in every field imaginable... It was revealed today that her scientists have managed to 3 d print a heart perfect in every way that may lead to other organs being replicated as well doing away with the need for organ transplants and the possibility down the road of tailor making your own organs not just hearts and replacing them as need be...I could say more but it is time for people to realize that the old way of doing things and their thinking is gone and that all of could have a brighter future if we let go of the stuff that is holding us back and instead of being hunched like a hunchback we can stand tall and face it with confidence and determination...Something we should all consider no matter our backgrounds and upbringings...

    I watched the spire fall (or tape of the spire fall anyway) during the week of Easter and I thought, "Jesus is coming back".

    But that's nothing new. I know He's coming back, and soon. I think that, and say it out loud, at least once a day.

    Soon.

    You would start a war over a fire ? You are a sick individual.

    Really? Wow. I had actually taken the express hope it be "an accident" at face value.
