Well it's good to know the fabled "Magic Money Tree" that Socialists are accused of making up actually exists. I hope they rebuild the Cathedral really well and also lift the entire world out of poverty and disease.

I'm curious to the idea that some people talking about rebuilding it as multi-faith, I'm sure it won't happen but it'd be a nice idea to rebuild something for everyone rather then as a monument to a failing faith in Europe. I can't speak to the strength of Roman Catholicism in France but i'd imagine it's not at the same level as the 13th century.

It's easy to get ridiculous about it all, "include Jedis!" etc. , but it's a funny situation. What to do with maintaining old buildings like this? Turn everything old into a well-funded, unchanging museum while we all live in spore-ridden flats?

I think there a church in Spain (probably real famous) that's both church and mosque. I don't really see why it should be changed from being a Catholic church just because it burned down.

Mmm, i'm not pushing that hard for it but it's an intriguing idea. I wonder how much prime real estate the Catholic Church owns in Ireland? I went to college in Maynooth and it's a bit crazy that the 3 or 4 priests being trained at any time owned an entire campus. I mean, they shared (for a high price i'm sure) but I know there was all sorts of problems when LGBT society stuff went up on their campus.

The amount of Real Estate the RC Church owns in just D9 & D11 is actually shocking.
Fancy fucking buildings, on Acres
