Buddha is welcome but the Bible is banned at the Bloomington, Ind., city hall after officials booted a display of the Ten Commandments erected by Christians wanting equal treatment with the Far East religion promoted by the Dalai Lama.
A WND request for comment from Mayor Mark Kruzan wasn't immediately returned, but a team of Christians upset over the promotion of Buddhism told WND they are seeking legal advice about their next step.
The dispute arose over a display of religious statues of Buddha and other items, including religious cloth paintings, erected in the Bloomington City Hall to coincide with a coming visit of the Dalai Lama, Tibet's leader of Buddhism....
No, doubt about it, the only signs needed are something like "Welcome Dalai" and whatever. Now if a Communist leader came, would we be seeing pictures of Lenin and Marx all over Bloomington? I think its time to call in the ACLU!
While the Dalai is a much nicer guy than the Pope he is no more holy than the Pope is, and of course, neither are holy. So, only the title of "His Unholiness" can be applied to either person, if one wants a title that has the base word of "holy" in it.
