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.

A building with that amount of history and importance should have had someone on watch 24/7. Fires during construction or renovations are very common. It's possible the Elite did this to stop the Yellow vest movement! Your attempt did not work the Yellow vest are still active! Keep up the struggle!

Well shit...now I'll never get to see Norte Dame, I kept saying once I had money again I'd go to Paris on my next trip to England, cross the English Channel and see historic Paris as well. But like missed opportunities to see celebrities who literally died less than a month after I had the chance to see them, I will never get to see this piece of 850 year history.

875 of France’s 42258 have been desecrated, vandalised and some even set on fire. 11 Christians are killed everyday in North Africa because of their faith. 238 in one weekend in June 2018 Nigeria. Estimated 900,000 murdered in North Africa and the Middle East in the last decade and yet barely any reports from Western Newspapers. And then they declare Notre Dame an accident before the fire is even finished and before investors can be let in. Shame on all of you. There is a higher authority who’s judgment you will never escape.

This is not only national disaster to France, but it is International disaster for all the Mankind. It was being saved by older generation even in the World War II. But we have to be shame as us as today's generation, we couldn't save it for future. In today we are as human beings fail to protect neither humanity (as many wars in the world in different ways) and neither their resources (like this Cathedral and many more around the world are being distracting.) So People rise for humanity and protect of mankind from their own disaster. Spread Loving Kindness and believe as all are from One God instead of many and respect to each other. Then world will be very pleasant place to mankind and all the beings. BS & GBY
