Gone



Could have been the contractors. Whatever the official report says, there will always be doubters.

European Churches Vandalized Defacated Torched Every Day

France Sees Ten Catholic Churches Attacked in One Week



No, I'm pretty sure this one (the big one in between the square pillars, north side) is NOT gone. The south, smaller one is. Along with the spire and 2/3 of the roof. But over 500M euros have already been pledged to repair the church.

This can be seen as an opportunity for resurrection and hope, not a total loss.



Yep and they will waste the money building a building instead of actually helping people. I really dislike cults



You mean like building a casino?



Good point. They should tear it down and build casino de Notre dame

I think a Bingo Hall would be more appropriate.

This PC thing just continues to get worse. Time to change the name of Pennsylvania because of the slaveowner it was named after William Penn.

Trust me, itís only a matter of time before they go after George Washington, itís coming.

The God Bless America Kate sang about is long gone.

RIP Kate, you deserved much better in death.

And anyone who thinks she was a racist is just not looking.

Matter of time? They are already coming after Washington.

That cover-the-statue thing is just ridiculous.

This is the problem when we try to erase history. Everyone is okay with taking this or that down (perhaps Confederate statues), then it is on to the next thing...the founders failings, etc. It just keeps going...we have a hard time stopping the removal train once it leaves the station.

Since we are all imperfect, someone can find a reason to remove just about everything...if they try hard enough...

I said in a discussion on the NZ mosque attack that "this is what a holy war looks like." Or something like that. Guessed that we will see more attacks on Christians.

Easter bombings were retaliation for Christchurch mosque attacks Ďpreliminary investigationí shows: Sri Lankan state minister

Not to mention what we learned has been happening in France almost daily now.

More proof the latest cursades are under way.

Or we can continue to make excuses for corrupt politicians, pretending it's just business as usual.

What the heck does that have to do with a conversation about removing a statue? If you want to start your own conversation in this thread, go ahead...it just makes no sense to past something totally unrelated as a reply to something about removing statues.
