Will Anybody Care? Hell, no.

The National Park Service has removed a Buddhist display from the Petroglyph National Monument in New Mexico.  It has cited First Amendment concerns in the removal.

 A New Mexico radio station has reported the removal on its website, and you've got to go see the comments to believe it.  One commenter even had to question whether Buddhism was even a religion...

Here's what KUNM of Albuquerque had to say:
The National Park Service said Monday that park service will remove the ten-foot structure containing Buddhist relics  from the park this week after getting an opinion from the Department of Interior's solicitor general. The solicitor general ruled last month that keeping the Buddhist stupa violates the Constitution on established religion.
Now, I just want to know - how long will it be before christians in the local community stand up and oppose this move and protest in front of the local National Park Service Headquarters?  When will the first lawsuit get filed by a local christian group on behalf of these poor "oppressed" Buddhists?

Yeah, I didn't think so, either.

I agree with you . So called Christians are all ready to defend their stance ,but do not want to hear opposing views or opinions.We need to recognize others rights but not infringe on others.
As far as offending someone about their beliefs ,we should all try to understand others and be tolerant of their beliefs .
I believe in standing up for you belief ,but not to critsize some one else's to justify ours.
No one is absolutly sure what follows death no one has ever come back to tell us.
I am not sure I believe their
is an afterlife.But I respect others beliefs .
