Default Norte Dame is burning down

The cathedral, not the shitty school, news story to follow

PARIS — A fire broke out at the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris on Monday evening, according to the French authorities and witnesses.

Andrť Finot, a spokesman for the cathedral, said in a telephone interview that the spire of the cathedral had caught fire. The cause of the fire remained unknown, and there was no immediate indication that anyone had been hurt.

This is a shame. It was a truly beautiful building, the world needs all the beauty we can offer.

In all seriousness I don’t think you can blanket condemn an entire organization that also does lots of good based.

Man that sucks! I could care less about religion but having just seen that last June I must say it was AMAZING. Cooler than the eiffel tower to me. We went in super early right when it opened so it was empty and just felt amazing to look around. Sad to see it ruined I would have never cared until I saw how amazing it was.

Disagree. If you do a lot of good but at the same time hide the rape and abuse of innocent children on a systemic basis over decades...sorry it doesnt balance out.

I hope you've never cheered for Penn State, Michigan State or anyone affiliated in any way with Jeff Epstein (and so, so, so many other institutions)

It was a gorgeous building, and I'm glad I got to see it in person when I did. I really didn't have a "my one thing to see in Paris is...", but when I walked inside, I think that was it for me.

It's a shame.

Not sure if it's ironic or just coincidental - this just before Easter.

Glad it wasn't just me, everyone asked about going up the Eiffle tower to me this was cooler, if you went later in the day when it was like shoulder to should packed house I don't think Id of enjoyed it as much. 8 or 9am just some other guy with a camera and us with. They'll rebuild but it's not the same

Although I think I remember walking around and reading it had been burnt down once or twice before lol

this

I went to Catholic school. It all stems down from the top. So many parents paid off under the table for things that happened just so they could keep their reputation of being a good school (instances of racism from teachers, Youth Minister was a diddler, etc)

but hey peace on Earth, Jesus and all that stuff
