Appalled like many others at the destruction of a truly beautiful edifice and that is what it is an edifice not the Church which scripture reminds those of any Xtian persuasion, no doubt whatsoever those with enough conviction are happy to worship at home as they would be in Notre Dame or St Paul's or anywhere else for that matter.

Beyond the hellish destruction is the applying wealth thrown as a charade to a fund for restoration by a few people of such obscene and shameless wealth, not a program to build thousands of modest houses for the homeless, poor and the unwanted et al...oh no, Fuck them ! Not wasting money on them, after all didn't Jesus tell us in ......John 12:8, " For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always". Instant absolution.

So that clears that hurdle despite the fact that very often all the poor have is their faith no matter how forlorn the situation. The megalomaniacs of such great wealth cannot possibly be hoping to buy tickets in First Class to the Promised Land...or could they? A practice long used by Religious organisation to fleece both rich and poor....

In the face of such dubious magnanimous generosity to further aggrandise themselves it might make more than a few of us sick to the heart and soul if their is such a thing and ashamed to share a planet with such influential effluent.

Anyone got a link to the gofundme page so I can make a financial contribution to the restoration of this Catholic Cathedral?

TIA

Don't be surprised when your local PP announces there will be an extra collection this Sunday for the poor French Cathedral.

It's the way the RC Church works.

I don't think they've paid out anything to all the lives they destroyed, so I doubt they'll pay up for some old church. They have enough mugs to do that for them.

I've been to Paris a few times and haven't noticed to be particularly dirty, the same is said about Rome and yet people still flock there.
Paris is a tourist Mecca full of hotels. Very busy when you have lots of tourists you also get lots of litter. A report came out of an increase in the population of rodents in the city.
