This is the kind of stuff that messes with my head.

I grew up Catholic, in a VERY Catholic community. As I grew up, I left the church. When I look back at my family, and seeing the addictions of each uncle/father, all of whom were alter boys, I can't help but think the Church had something to do with it.

So I see this and I think "Good", but at the same time, the people, like my grand mother, the people like the teachers, police officers, community representatives that I grew up with didn't deserve this... or did they?

Maybe they did? Did they protect the priests who were "moved" suddenly? Seriously a mind eff for me...

I fully understand as 3 good childhood friends of mine were abused as well. So as a non Catholic I only see the history side but someone like yourself DC it is surreal

religious or not, there is a lot of history up in smoke.

the building is over 850 years old. Nothing on our side of the pond comes even close.

from the sounds of things, its not a total write off.

roof is gone...inside is gutted...a lot of lost art, and stained glass...but the walls are still up, the towers are safe...

sounds like they will be able to rebuild.

Not terrorism, it’s being blamed on the renovation of the Church’s spire ....However the Alt-right conspiracy theorists are using this to spread anti-Muslim B.S.
