    Its a great loss to France and World culture.

    Up until the late 1980s and pre Elf & safety you could walk out onto the roof and have a pleasant sit down enjoying your lunch watching the World go by.

    Not a person of faith, except for in human nature, but those pictures last night when the spire fell made my head leak(just a bit).

    The place means a lot to a lot of people and their sense of loss must be huge.

    Cheers (ironically)

    Seriously, though, I have no time for organized religion but I am a student of history and tragedies such as this mean an awful lot of cultural value is lost to the world. It will be rebuilt but what has been lost will never be recovered. On the plus side, I understand that no-one was hurt - which is a very big plus.

    Not a believer either but in terms of heritage Notre Dame is a world treasure, last night's events were terribly sad. I remember standing under the great dome of St Paul's in awe at the workmanship and splendour of the place. I remember visiting Westminster Abbey and walking by thousand year old tombs of Saxon Kings and Saints. I can't even begin to imagine the loss. Ironic really given that the custodians of Notre Dame had been crying out for restoration funds and now there have been hundreds of millions pledged to rebuild the place.

    strange how all this money can suddenly be found to rebuild an edifice to a redundant religion when there are riots and protest in the streets because of rises in the price of food and fuel,just another Church as I see it, who needs them, our Cathedrals here are another example of stupidity,they want an arm and a leg from your to have a look around them, and the Church here is one of the riches establishments we have.Call me crass if you like but hey ho burnt down, so what?
