I blame Quasimodo.

“When I was in college, I took a terrorism class. ... 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 hope it's the most boring, disappointing speculations I have heard. (lowest-bidder)

On the other hand, will a church have to pay to rebuild it? Or is it a government building?

I do hope it's rebuild-able. Lots of people seem to like it.

It is nice to look at alright and it is a ‘landmark’, but meh.

If it burns down knowing the French they’ll build something radical and interesting to replace it. Paris is good like that.

No it will be rebuilt. Take many years but it will. Paris without Notre-Dame? Impossible.

A French official and the Paris fire chief have told the Associated Press that they think Notre Dame Cathedral’s landmark rectangular towers have been saved from the fire that caused horrific damage.

The structure of the cathedral has been saved, and the fire has been stopped from spreading to the northern belfry, Paris police said.

The junior interior minister Laurent Nuñez says that authorities remain “prudent” but are “much more optimistic” than they were earlier tonight.

Paris fire commander Jean-Claude Gallet says that a major accomplishment of the hundreds of firefighters was stopping the flames from spreading to the north tower belfry.

Gallet says two-thirds of Notre Dame’s roofing “has been ravaged.” He says one firefighter was injured, adding that fire crews will keep working overnight to cool down the structure.
It will be rebuilt. Enough has been saved.

Does this have anything to do with the recent spate of Catholic Church damage appearing in France lately?

Fortunately, our Prez is on the case! And, stable genius that he is, has already proposed a solution!
People think "queue" is just "q" followed by 4 silent letters.

But those letters are not silent.

They're just waiting their turn.

Obviously the destruction was the fault of muslim workers who took opportunity to destroy a Frankish monument.
