    I'm not catholic, but it was a beautiful piece of architecture. A great historical loss.

    I have been in it too. Terrible loss historically,architecturally, religiously. My wife and were planing a trip to Paris in the near future. Guess I can scratch Notre Dame off the list.

    Please understand I'm NOT second guessing the Paris Fire Fighters but I wonder why they were not able to stop the fire from spreading?

    The Drudge Report had this article below about a failed 2016 ISIS attack on Notre Dame Cathedral.

    I have been to that church several times, It was definitely a work of art. Really a shame to see it gutted like that.

    I am sure it will be restored to its former glory. A lot of the European churches and castles that stood for centuries were decimated during WWII have been rebuilt to look as they were before the war.

    Hopefully it was an accident.
    It is an evil society that blames the tool for the actions of its user.

    Went to Paris several years ago.
    This is a sad day.
    I am not religiuos, but-- what an iconic bldg.
    Can it ever be rebuilt to look as grand?
    Are there craftsmen today like that?
