Notre-Dame cathedral on fire in Paris – BBC News

A fire has broken out at the famous Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris and has spread rapidly across the building.

The cause is not yet clear, but officials say that it could be linked to renovation work.

A major operation to tackle the blaze is under way at the 850-year-old Gothic building, but the cathedral’s spire and roof have collapsed.

Last year, the Catholic Church in France appealed for funds to save the building, which was crumbling.

French President Emmanuel Macron, who is on his way to the scene, said his thoughts were with “all Catholics and all French people.”

    This is a good time to talk about the crimes of religion and how it is still a threat to humanity. It has NUKES! Yep! Israel has nukes and is an apartheid state by law, Jewish! & hostile as fuck!
    But we can believe that is all in the past and religion is just a personal thing!
    NOT!

    This is a world heritage on fire. So sad to see this happen and being unable to do anything about it. This is a tragedy for the whole world.

    Stop being so Eurocentric, if you are not an European or simply a Christian you shouldn;t give a crap, really. For most of mankind, in Latinamerica but above all in Africa and Asia, European Christianism has been by far the worse curse for them in their milennary History, one thing that has only brought them misery, death, oppression, disease, plunder, exploitation, genocide and humilliation for the last 500 years, Billions of people around the world would be celebrating now if they gave a shit. In Southern Chile a "Christian" government is still killing the original Indians, the Mapuche, because they protest the stealing of their land and the same must be going everywhere else in the world.

    For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

    Notre Dam is just a building, Nothing more and nothing less.

    Was anyone smoking around there when the fire started? Smokers will throw butts anywhere. Hope they're happy.

    Maybe it caught on fire from all the crimes that are coming to "light"!
    The most wealthy land owners in the world and for some reason, people give them money!
    It is expensive to defend a bleeding dick!

    Don't feel sad for a stupid building. Feel sad for the millions of people that die each day from war, hunger and disease.

    A funny coincidense. Fire on the Notre Dame church, just before Easter (A christian holiday) and precisely a month (15th march 2019) after the terror attack in New Zealand. If this turns up to be a terror attack, then i wouldn't imagine the outcome France will have on its muslim immigrants.

    Just before Easter too, I don't doubt for a second that the religion of peace is responsible for this.
