Notre Dame cathedral in Paris is engulfed in flames

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article...cathedral-fire

Possibly caused by ongoing renovations.

Almost put this in the death thread, it looks pretty devastating.

Yep, turns out you can be arrested for being a shitty edgelord.

My heart is not breaking over this. France should have never given it back to the church, I liked it better when it was dedicated to reason.

Still it was the church that had built it, either way it is very sad to see gorgeous architecture like that die such a death

I always thought the flying buttresses were weird. And stone doesn't burn. This won't be the first time it has had to be renovated either.

Yes it's old, and ornate, and a lot of people worked on it.

But I don't like what it has always represented. What money do you think the Church used to build it?

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, said he was praying that "God preserve this splendid house of prayer, and protect those battling the blaze."


The rooster at the summit of the spire contained three relics: a tiny piece of the Crown of Thorns, located in the treasury of the Cathedral; and relics of Denis and Saint Genevieve, patron saints of Paris. They were placed there in 1935 by the Archibishop Jean Verdier, to protect the congregation from lightning or other harm.

I was reading this article earlier:
http://time.com/4876087/notre-dame-c...-is-crumbling


But it states in there:
Quote:
It will be expensive too, and it’s not at all clear who is prepared to foot the bill. Under France’s strict secular laws, the government owns the cathedral, and the Catholic archdiocese of Paris uses it permanently for free. The priests for years believed the government should pay for repairs, since it owned the building. But under the terms of the government’s agreement, the archdiocese is responsible for Notre Dame’s upkeep, with the Ministry of Culture giving it about €2 million ($2.28 million) a year for that purpose. Staff say that money covers only basic repairs, far short of what is needed.

Jesus fucking christ. I despair of our police I really do. A couple of days ago I read about a woman who was murdered by her stalker ex despite calling them to say she believed he was going to do her harm. They'd even fined her for £90 for not revealing she had been in a relationship with this man. They didn't have the time to go and help her but they have bags of time to arrest tacky vulgar dickheads.

Just read that Europe no longer has Oaks big enough for the roof beams.



Quote:
To kick off the project, workers cleared 21 hectares of oak. Each beam of the intricate wooden cross-work was drawn from a different tree: estimated at 13,000 trees in total. To reach the heights the carpenters needed to build the structure, those trees would likely have been 300 or 400 years old, meaning they would have sprouted out of the ground in the eighth or ninth centuries.

Euro-journos can't math? ha ha (say that in your best Super Dave voice)

eighth or ninth century => 700 or 800 A.D, so not 300 or 400 years ago
or not 8th or 9th C

According to the cynical First Dog dude it shouldn't be rebuilt.
According to our two (three?) resident idiots it can't be rebuilt.
So why sacrifice one's flesh for a "proven" irrelevance?

Jesus Christ Mondo, no one in this thread said it can't be rebuilt. It just won't be rebuilt with the same shit. Last time it was rebuilt they used concrete to replace stone.
