    It is a sad day in Paris today, as one of the city’s most famous landmarks has been gutted. The fire is believed to have started accidentally by renovation work that was taking place. The roof and spire have collapsed, and various stained glass windows have shattered. The interior of the cathedral is believed to be a total loss.

    If left wingers were like right wingers they would say this is God’s punishment to the Catholic empire for allowing decades of abuse.

    I wonder whether some Protestant fundamentalists would interpret the fire as a form of supernatural punishment.

    Frech billionaires have already pledged $675M toward the rebuild.

    France’s superrich have joined together and pledged about 600 million euros, or $677 million, to help rebuild Paris’ Notre-Dame Cathedral after it was ravaged by a fire.

    It would be nice if some American billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates would put something in too.

    Some recent photos that I have seen show that the damage to the interior was not as severe as had been originally feared. Nevertheless, I hope that the new roof can be built out of a non-flammable material.
