The absolute poisonous toxic bile that some people are spewing on the OC3D Facebook page about this is unreal.

Didn't believe you at first. So went over the FB page.

Well, you were right! It's not crazy toxic but the amount of heartlessness is insane. I am one of the least religious people in the world, least caring at most things, and this fire of Notre Dame is sad even to me. 800 years of history wiped out within hours. That's a sad thing. No I am not crying over it or anything, but you can still have some sort of empathy.

This is in general why I stay away from Facebook, It brings some truly vile people out of the woodwork.

Seems a lot of the worst comments where auto-moderated out. Seems a lot of the comments are from super anti-religion people. It's a national monument and a huge part of French history, that building is more than a cathedral.

All I am thinking right now is what would the response have been if it was St Paul's Cathedral in London.

When it comes to any landmark that is religious the anti religion crowd are always the first to come out and start screeching, I'm far from religious but I think the great monuments of the world, Notre Dame, Mecca, Taj Mahal, St Pauls, The Vatican, Angkor Wat etc... all add a nice touch of culture.

I was driving home from work on Monday evening and saw the massive plume of smoke in the sky over Paris, took the photo below out of my home office window.
Everybody is gutted about it here.

But at least nobody got hurt.
That old hunchback should really think about giving up smoking now

A thing to note is that almost 700 million in donations have come in to help pay for repair, I really don't think it will cost that much.
Lets hope they put the remaining cash to good use like helping the homeless and mentally ill which is at enormous levels around here (there are people living in tents in the park in front of me)...

I think it's sad. Whatever any one thinks it's still a part of our history. I do have two minor grumbles though. Firstly, famous people pledge 300m to rebuild it when there are homeless people in their towns and states and just as many of their own starving, and secondly dodgy wiring? come on now. A building of such importance should have been tip top. Then again, with the govt constantly wasting money on wars it wouldn't surprise me if it were badly neglected.

Edit. Just read the last part of your post FTLN (I hadn't before that I usually skim threads then read them backward) but yeah, seems we're on the same page.

I think the world needs to get its priorities straight.
