    Ken Follet, author of Pillars of the Earth, was interviewed on BBC news – he has studied cathedral, architecture extensively, thus a bit of an expert… says the amount of fire that happened all at once indicates it might be more than a renovation related accident.

      Agreed. France has suffered a tremendous number of Church desecrations and destruction the past several months, like a Jihad or something.

      Unfortunately, no matter the real reason for the fire, many of us will be skeptical of the official findings – thanks to the lies of non-Nationalist, globalist governments which have bent too far over backward to push the muslim agenda.

    The President’s use of 9/11 to attack @IlhanMN is dangerous and irresponsible, and part of a pattern of fanning the flames of hate against Muslims.
    Using the emotions and tragedy of 9/11 to score political points is beneath the dignity of any president. At least it should bE

      blah blah blah… sorry Pencil Neck, you CANNOT use our memory of what ACTUALLY HAPPENED against us to defend moslems like the Cair spokeswoman, Omar.

      It is not hateful to point out TRUTH and historical facts.

      I swear, these Democrats are trying desperately to hide 9/11… to sweep it under the rug. What are they afraid of? That the youth of today might actually learn what really happened?

      I am sick of this moslem appeasement that they are forcing upon us. WE DIDN’T FLY THE PLANES INTO THOSE TOWERS, Adam Schiff!!!!!!!! The people that Omar represents and openly advocates for DID.

    So we can assume that French authorities are placing extra security around churches throughout the country? OK never mind, forgot that the current ruling (socialist) regime cares very little about religious freedoms in France; that is unless someone badmouths their glorious Muslim immigrants (invaders).

        I turned on the TV earlier, and it was tuned to our local FOX affiliate.
        I was shocked and very upset to see Notre Dame burning!!
        The station was taking the feed from Fox News, and Shepard Smith was talking and interviewing as video streamed. When he was connected to a reporter on the scene, the reporter said ‘The cause is not known. There has been a lot of social unrest in France…’ Smith abruptly said “Stop. We will not listen to that kind of talking here.” There was a pause, then Smith told him to go on with only facts. The reporter tried to pick up where he had left off, and Smith interrupted him again, scolding.
        I changed the channel to our local abc affiliate. The commenters there were doing alright until they related Pres. Trump’s tweet suggestion that perhaps aerial water tanks could be used. The commenters proceeded to say that the heavy water would do damage, and would do as much damage as the fire was doing. They mocked Pres. Trump.
        I turned the television off, and came to the computer.

    Great book. In it, he explains the churches originall went to using rock for the roofs and walls, because of,….wait for it,…FIRE!
    Because of the prevalence of candles, and tapestries on the walls, churches kept burning down (wooden structures), and so they went to stone.

    He also details, in graphic detail, the deliberate burning down OF such a stone cathedral in Pillars of the earth, so he definetly knows what he’s talking about.

    “Islamophobia” is the stupidest word ever injected into the English language, bar none. It was created by depraved conmen, believed in only by complete idiots, and has as its sole purpose trying to verbally intimidate as many people as possible into giving up all their human rights, and as fully as possible, only starting with the lynch pin of all human rights, freedom of speech, to Islam, the greatest continuing crime against humanity, especially women, including little girls, the world has ever known.

    Islam can perhaps be best defined as the complete absence of all humanity and all human rights. To humanity, Islam is like anti-matter to matter, they can not exist at the same place at the same time.

    At some point, either Islam dies or Humanity dies.

      Hmmmm, maybe “some people did something.” “Nice cathedral you have there, sure would hate for it to have an ‘accident,’ especially during your holy week after surviving multiple wars and 700 years.” I’m sure it’s just a coincidence because no one could ever have an intentional “accident” and I’m sure security was absolutely top-notch on the construction site. It will be interesting to hear the true cause although if it was intentional I don’t think we’ll ever hear it.

    This has been a month where scores of attacks on churches in France have occurred, a woman was sentenced for trying to destroy what now is in ruins — one of the most visited landmarks in Europe, and general unrest has gripped Paris, which some might see as now the land of the no-go zones and the city of lights only by merit of the burning vehicles and buildings for which criminals relatively new to the region have often been the culprit.

    Now, this building which represented to many from a particular worldview a symbol of Christendom which was built and stood through countless wars, weather challenges and the like has been decimated. Not the Louvre, not the Eiffel Tower, but a symbol of Christendom.

    You’ll have to pardon me if I don’t default to workplace oopsie when considering how this happened.

    (Oh, and when the rounds of comments from officials come forward, feel free to go through the PC priorities on display by government officials and media enablers during previous terror attacks in France and the EU — as well as general investigative issues some allege to have occurred during the Diana crash matter.)

      So, if you do not spout the DNC talking points, you cannot participate. You will be ostracized until you comply. Not exactly a good message to send to those you hope to sway come election time.

      Prior to WW2, wars were fought away from cities, so no buildings of import were in any danger.
      During WW2, Hitler threatened to bomb Paris to the ground if they didn’t give up. The French couldn’t bare to see their beautiful and historic city burned to a rubble so they signed an amnesty and the Germans marched in without a shot being fired.

      So no, these buildings did NOT survive wars. They didn’t need to.

Arianna Grande and Beyonce and Adam Levine would be tripping over each other trying to be the first on Twitter to care sooooooooooooooo much about the Muslim faith.
