The collapsing spire symbolizes the collapse of the Catholic Church as it implodes from the shock and disgrace of the revelation that most Catholic priests have always been child abusers -- for TWO THOUSAND YEARS!! This Church is DONE -- shut it down, and sell Notre Dame for conversion into a shopping mall.

It's a real tragedy that the building that more or less watched over a country for decades has suffered such damage. On the bright side, the structure itself was mostly intact, thanks to the collective efforts of all those who put out the fires. I hope the reconstruction goes well, and that I may someday visit Paris to see Notre Dame in it's restored glory.

I ve heard a wise man said that this is all Macron plan and hes a mason, to ruin the Christianity.. hows that such iconic building have no cameras or midnight active firemans, and was forbiden to spill water from the air ( "could damage the wood and make more damage") even Trump said not to do it like that. Who the fuck you kidding??

@Azi Sangtam You need to grow the fuck up and accept that there are other people on this planet, that you may not like. In no way, shape or form does it mean I support terrorism if I am defending peoples rights to live and enjoy their culture. Muslim, Jewish, Christianity etc. it all comes from a main concept and idea. I'm sure you wouldn't like people saying things like this about you if you were Muslim. I personally have no issues with them. If they're not hurting anyone (which they have, but so has Christianity, more so), they deserve a right to be on this planet. You are immature and immoral, your mind is slim, and you need to be able to see the social side of this.

@John Laurens hence you support terrorism.well.. Imagine "a world without Muslims".how cool would it be yeaa!!!.. This planet is not for Muslims if I am to be straight.and there are millions and billions who holds the same thought. what in world are you doing kid?!!

Azi Sangtam because in a world where one of the primary languages is English, it would be a great asset to be able to speak it, like Chinese or French. Stop being immature

Mourn the loss of an old building. This however was NEVER a monument to Christ, Rather to a man made power structure known as Catholicism which masquerades as a route to Jesus, and Heaven.

Thousands of craftsmen invested all their lives building and maintaining this beautiful Cathedral. I live near York and that was restored after a devastating fire. ruvid.net/video/video-1Rspx6DJyrw.html I’m not sure why the Catholic Church aren’t spending a fraction of their billions though.
