Hey, remember when organizations and rich people the world over suddenly had millions upon millions to throw at this church, but somehow they never have enough money to help actual people?

It's France dude, relax. The cathedral is a beautiful example of medieval construction. I'm pretty much an agnostic, but I love medieval architecture, especially cathedrals, and I can separate it from the heinous aspects of the church.

It's the most visited monument in France and Europe. The tourist jobs and tax revenues that the cathedral generate likely justify pouring hundreds of millions of not billions into getting it open ASAP.

Do you go around making pointless comments?

Wait, I already know the answer to this.


Well, you definitely do.

Hint: who owns Notre Dame?

Stunningly beautiful. I hope that the restoration includes some way to stop gormless tourists from climbing up behind the presbytery during mass.
