Yeah, tracking all that. Question remains.

The Catholic Church that runs the church should pay for repairs. They make a lot of money. Why do they need an additional $1B.
People are donating the money because of what the Cathedral means to France, not because of what it means to the Catholic Church. It's a symbol of Paris and of France.

That would be were the donations come in.

Don't see why people get all butt-hurt over how other people spend THEIR OWN money.
Concur.

And to take a brief tangent from the topic for a moment, this also touches on an issue I have with leftists, like "Bernie", "AOC", etc...if they want a 70% tax rate, they should start donating their personal finances now. Lead by example and all that. There is nothing to prevent them or any of their ilk from donating extra income/taxes to the government and no one should have a problem with it if they voluntarily choose to do so. Yet, they don't. Why? Hmmm.
