A bad omen for Christianity? Notre Dame fire.

An 800 years old famous Notre-Dame Cathedral was ingulfed in spectacular fire today and its spire topped with a cross has collapsed. President Macron interrupted his regular work and said:

"Our Lady of Paris in flames. Emotion of a whole nation. Thought for all Catholics and for all French. Like all our countrymen, I'm sad tonight to see this part of us burn."

A bad omen for entire Christianity?

Are reports certain that it wasn't terrorism and/or arson?

omen

Do you believe in omens?

Are reports certain that it wasn't terrorism and/or arson?

The police say not.

And I smell a cover up! Practically reeks of one.

Ghastly business in Paris. A terrible loss to history

Agreed.
Shocking news......such an iconic building is virtually gone......probably never to be rebuilt in my lifetime.....
Glad to have visited it many times.....so sad that I will never visit it again.
The power that building had is shown by people's reactions across the internet.

It's a bit quick for anything like that; nor is there any suggestion that the police's immediate statement is anything other than accurate.

Enough already of your fake news...

When the most important symbol of France, indeed next to Westminster Abbey or the Cologne Cathedral, of Western Christendom, is engulfed by fire, I believe that crying "fake news" is at best meretricious, don't you think?

So don't spread it, unless you have secret information that the Paris police don't.

Crying 'cover-up' is vile.

Yes, Renewed measures must be taken to protect other icons of medieval Europe. Shockingly depressing pictures. I remember being more impressed by the cathedral of Chartres but that is completely off topic. Heartbreaking for the French and for history watching the French presidents' address tonight.

Too early to throw out accusations.
But the country with the biggest Muslim population in Europe has recently been covering up the fact that there have been masses of attacks on churches in France recently.

but let's wait and see........

Too early to throw out accusations.

This was just released: "Prosecutors believe the fire started accidentally, based on their preliminary investigation."

It concurs with the immediate statement by the police pretty well as soon as the fire was reported.

Me too and Sacre Coeur too.
But nonetheless,Notre Dame is something special.
We just don't have an equivalent in The UK or Poland.

France is constitutionally a secular nation even though its politicians are rabidly Zionist.

So there was little concern the French government ever had in preserving this religious landmark and tourist attraction.

The French public gave little and there were charities trying to raise money over in the States before the fire.

Early reports say it would now take billions to restore.

Good excuse now for the Saudis to step in an build a mosque on the site.

As I said earlier, York Minster was destroyed by fire in the same way in the 1980s by pesky builders,and renovated within 5-10 years. And now we have 3D technology so everything can be replicated....

On list of problems the French have, that fire ranks 97.

FFS mate shut up!
France is a secular state but holds Christian ideals very dear.
As for the Zionist part of your pathetic anti Semitic diatribe,there are very few Jews in France.
Most of your kind murdered them.......

Wrong call Rich.
You obviously don't understand The French.

That fire was as much an accident as was 9/11. Just as every dead guy is a murder victim - until proven otherwise.

An utter tragedy for not only the people of France, but also Catholics worldwide. Notre Dame is one of Catholicism's most important and renowned sites, and I can't even imagine how hard it must be for believers to see such a place destroyed by fire.

I have nothing but sympathy for the French people and Catholics all over the world.

As for "shitonya", what kind of person gloats over the destruction of one of Catholicism's most holy sites?

France is a secular state

Quite. That's about the state; the people are free to practise any religion or none. For people of all faiths, and even those without, it was a symbol of the city and its past.

Worth mentioning that the fire started on the roof, where there was work happening.

So there was little concern the French government ever had in preserving this religious landmark and tourist attraction.

Making a fool of yourself as usual?

The French.

The French don't understand the French. If they did, Paris would not be a human sewer today.
But I am willing to rephrase it: that fire should rank 97.

Me too and Sacre Coeur too.

I preferred the Sacre Coeur, but Notre Dame's importance is incomparable.

He's gloating about the destruction of one of the most important sites of Catholic worship in the world. Disgusting.

Sacre Coeur,

A bit on the kitsch side for me, however a trip to the famous church at Ronchamp was a revelation.

Worth mentioning that the fire started on the roof, where there was work happening.

You know oh so very little.

The fact was this structure was over 800 years old. The masonry regularly fell off and was replaced with wood rather than stone. It was cheaper and required less skill. That's because there was no money to preserve it.

Perhaps the ongoing restoration work was merely a mirage.

And you're still making a fool of yourself as usual.

A terrible thing - fire. In 2012, my brothers' neighbour set fire to her sofa with a cigarette. The row of cottages including my brothers' house.were destroyed at second floor level.

Far worse, L, the neighbour, died from smoke inhalation despite heroic attempts to save her. Check those smoke alarm batteries folks - they go off with a hell of a screech but will likely save your life.

He's just trying to be an edgelord and failing miserably.

edition.cnn.com/2019/04/15/world/notre-dame-catholics/index.html - a nice article explaining why it's so important for Catholics.

I hope all the relics have been saved.
