  • L.A. neighborhood stunned by sledgehammer attacks on Buddha statue

    .....but they don't mind crosses and 10 commandments being torn down?

    For many years, the little traffic island at Jasmine Avenue and National Boulevard in Palms was a local dumping site.

    “It was just the spot where everyone dumped their couches, beds, washers and dryers,” said Lee Wallach, director of the Motor Avenue Improvement Assn.

    The unwanted furniture and appliances at the median became such a problem that it seemed the city made daily trips to the intersection.

    “Then literally, one night, a Buddha statue appeared and no one knows where it came from but the community was like, oh OK, there's a Buddha in town,” Wallach said.

    The stone statue, raised on a large planter, prevented people from dumping bulky items at the traffic island. It’s unknown whether that was the intent, but neighbors embraced the Buddha, dropping off roses, daisies and other types of flowers.

    “It really rallied the community, and people started taking care of the Buddha,” Wallach said.

    All was peaceful in the Los Angeles neighborhood until one evening last month, when a man in a white sedan pulled over, got out and used a sledgehammer to decapitate the statue.

      The trouble with idolatry is that when a society quits worshiping the Lord
      isn't that it worships nothing, bur rather that the society will soon worship
      anything that comes along.

        Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
