The part of me that doesn't care about the relics of religion could only care insofar as the blaze is contained to the building and doesn't spread.

The part of me that wants to preserve important pieces of history (for instance, as museums) hopes as much as possible can be saved.

It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

The relics of religion aren't in the building right now since its closed for renovation. The only thing we're losing is some of the historical stuff (mainly windows).
There is no plague more evil and vile to watch spread than the plague that is the Von Habsburg dynasty.

Yes, but the art--some of which couldn't be removed, like the windows, or the carving of the Last Judgment--was religiously inspired, plus the building itself is a freaking cathedral. It is itself a relic of religion.

And so, if it were solely of religious significance, it could burn for all I care.

But since it's also of historical and artistic significance, I hope the building is saved.

Wouldn't worry about it.  France says the fire's under control.

Ironbite-it can be rebuilt.

Trump had to chime in with advice telling the French to drop water on the cathedral from a plane. When they didn't do so (because it would have been stupid) Trump-cult has decided that the French are letting the cathedral be destroyed just to spite Trump because they refuse to use good ideas if Trump is the one who came up with it.

And conspiracy theorists are already claiming that this was a Jewish plot or a satanic ritual or whatever.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!
