The Bloomington Indiana City Hall is planning to welcome a visit by the Dalai Lama by promoting the Buddhist religion with statues and other religious symbols in the city hall. All this while the same city hall is following the practices of the Tibetan Communist Party by removing the limestone carving of 10 Commandments. The Dalia Lama lives in exile as the communists eliminate all references of his existence from Tibet.
The pastor of Pentecostal Faith Assembly, Michael Douglas, expressed the irony, "He lost his voice in his country, (we) don't want to lose our voice in our country."
