It's horrible. And I haven't even seen it yet. 850 years old Cathedral. The spiral collapsed. The roof. FFS.

Cultural disaster.  Gothic architecture at its finest. 
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

It's times like these I remember why it's best to avoid social media. For me, it's like being stabbed in the chest to see those photos and videos. ... but then I see all these hateful posts about it. The amount of racism against French people, or celebrating because it happened to Catholics and fuck Catholics, or just outright trolling is fucking ridiculous.

Fuck our obsession with clout and attention, there is not a drop of either that is good for us.

Bloody fucking shame.


Hope the hunchback made it out.


Seriously though: fucking shame. Glad to have seen it in full glory when I was younger.

According to Trump, the French didn't do enough raking.

It's still bad, but yanno, this isn't the first time Europeans have had to rebuild churches.

What if it was all just a part of Disney's live action remake of the hunchback of notre Dame ?

You mean the Frollo scene finally got out of hand? It was the best part of the movie!

Yes it is bad, but at this point it looks like it could have been worse. A lot of the artwork had been removed due to the renovations. It is probably too early to know how much damage the heat did too much of the stonework though. My money is on a welder as the cause.

Yeah, the same here. Here is the drill over here. The dumb religious freaks 'celebrate' because, yanno 'god's punishment' and then seculars get into fight with the dumb getting dumber, sometimes even escalates to threats and blah blah...dumb nationalists, the right wing nutters join in with why someone would be sensitive about en event like this in an another country. Then there is me, fingers crossed for an imminent metorite strike.
