For some reason I though he was referring to an American church burning in his thread... :shifty:

I think it was the New Ulster Defence Force.
You got a point there, I forgot the likelihood of protestant involvement.

I suspect the Gauloises (Liberté toujours!) of being behind that attack.

Just waiting for thew usual fuckwits to claim that Muslims are celebrating the destruction of the cathedral and/or that they are responsible for it.

Oh wait. They already have.
So Buzzfeed are 'the usual fuckwits'? Or do they stand apart, showing us the usual fuckwits?

I did hear someone claim that it happens to be Holy Week (implied as a religious holiday of some competing sect) but one thing is for sure - rich people will throw money on the reconstruction fast and hard. As terrible as this loss is, I'm kind of excited to see what is built there in its place.

One of the greatest tax write-off events ever.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with that, the maecenes who pledge hundreds of millions of € toward the rebuilding of the cathedral don't do it out of generosity, or even to improve their image.

I don't know, a tax write-off, at least in the US is never dollar-for-dollar, and there are limits. Someone giving $100,000,000 to charity sure ain't gonna get a $100,000,000 of their taxes. It's a percentage, with a cap.

The thing that was interesting in the class was every time the professor said ‘Al Qaeda’ his shoulders went up, But you know, it is that you don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity, you don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity,” she continued. “... But you say these names [Al Qaeda] because you want that word to carry weight. You want it to be something.” - Ilhan Omar

I don't know if we even have a cap, plus, those guys will just slice up the donations over several years and several types of taxes (real estate taxes, income taxes, ultra high real esstate wealt tax... you see where this is going) so they will get the most bang for their money.

It seemed like a good idea, I suppose. A screw has probably come loose somewhere. His lawyers should get him to a qualified forensic psychiatrist.

'Man In Custody After Bringing Gas, Lighters into St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC'
A New Jersey man was taken into custody on Wednesday night after he tried to enter St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City carrying cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, police said.

Police said they do not know the man’s “mindset” but noted that the excuse he gave for having the gas was bogus, and that the incident happened just two days after the devastating inferno at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
Seems he'd been working up to it--

'Man Charged With Trying to Set St. Patrick’s on Fire Was Arrested at Newark Cathedral Days Earlier'
Days before a 37-year-old philosophy professor allegedly tried to set fire to the iconic St. Patrick’s Cathedral in the heart of Manhattan, he was arrested for refusing to leave a church in New Jersey—setting off a bizarre 48 hours for a man who previously had little interaction with law enforcement.

According to an arrest report of the incident at Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart obtained by The Daily Beast, Marc Lamparello was charged Monday night after he refused orders from an Essex County Deputy Sheriff to leave the Newark church.

The cathedral was closing and Lamparello, who was seated in a pew according to the report, allegedly told a sheriff who asked him to leave: “If you want me to leave tonight, you’re gonna have to handcuff me and arrest me tonight and take me to jail.”

A few moments later, as two sheriffs tried to get him to leave, Lamparello apparently threw himself onto a pew and yelled “no.” Then, as officers tried to take him into custody, he resisted, and at one point threw himself onto the church floor, stating, “I’m not leaving. God wants me here. I know all the sins the priests have committed.”[/url]
