    Yes, and it seems some students in the Albany area were visiting. https://www.timesunion.com/news/arti...e-13769130.php

    French Ministry of Interior says 400 firefighters on site are to save what they can, but the building is a loss.

    Looks like it was already a target.

    Without giving credence to current reports, there HAVE been numerous attacks on Catholic churches in France o er the past months.

    What will they replace Her with? Google St. Vibiana (old cathedral) and Taj Mahoney (new cathedral).

    Pius X warned us about modernism. He should have meant church architecture.

    They'll probably put a mosque there. Just like they tried to do with Ground Zero in NYC.

    Please, don't joke like that. I can see that, but that would mean the end of Christian Europe.

    I wish I could tell you that the thought was a joke. Look at how many "migrants" (i.e. military-aged Muslims) Europe has been flooded with. And look at how Christians are being persecuted even in supposedly "safe" spots.

    Interior's pretty much not salvageable, according to reports.

    And I just realized... This is Holy Week.

    Gotta wonder, whatever's left standing after this is out, how much of it can they leave standing in the middle of an urban area?

    The talking heads (or faceless voices since I'm listening on XM) said while it's in a very urban environment, it is on an island and is separated from surrounding structures.


    Sidenote: Brian Williams on MSNBC sucks. His banter sucks, his on-site callers suck, he's just terrible. The MSNBC host before him was so much better.

    It's on ile de la Cite. Go here and turn on Satelite. It's well away from everything else.

    Fun fact: the house where Peter Abelard and Heloise had their tryst before the, ahem, overreaction, in just up the street.

    Looks like French official Philippe Karsenty and Catholic League president Bill Donahue are also questioning the official narrative. Don't worry to those who are complaining about someone questioning it: They were cut off on, of all places, Fox Snooze.
