Downtown Dewey Square is crammed with tents and tarps of Occupy Boston protesters, but organizers made sure from the start of this weeks-old encampment that there was room for the holy.
No shoes are allowed in the "Sacred Space" tent here, but you can bring just about any faith or spiritual tradition.
A day's schedule finds people balancing their chakras, a "compassion meditation" and a discussion of a biblical passage in Luke. Inside, a Buddha statue sits near a picture of Jesus, while a hand-lettered sign in the corner points toward Mecca....

"...a minister of Jesus Christ ought to love every body and fear no mortal man..." ~General Andrew Jackson
Leave it to AP to use religion as a way to give the OWS crowd some favorable publicity. Religion is the last thing this crowd wants, unless one counts Marx, Alinsky and Mao as religious figures.
Jesus the the moneychangers out of the temple. Our Lord and Savior would not be pleased with the symbols of Buddha and Mohammed being present.
“No one comes to the Father except through Me,” Jesus said — and He doesn’t share.
The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be yours.
Let the clown media continue to promote these jokers. Their credibility couldn’t sink any faster than it already is.
Andy wasn’t a minister.
While they may have a Cross, Buddha, etc. in the tent whatever discussions they are having are almost certainty not what the respective religions are about.
Moses would tell them, "Whoever is on the Lord's side, let him come to me."
Jesus would say, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
And the Holy Spirit speaking through Paul would tell the OWS folks, "Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need."
And if Mad Mo was alive, he would say, "hunt them down, cut off their heads and enslave them."
This is Hotei, a good luck "god" in China or as my teacher called him, a Chinese kitchen god.
This is a statue of the historical Buddha, Shakyamuni.
Looks like the online mag run by Obama’s “spiritual advisor” (Jim Wallis) is on board with the marxists.
Jesus the Occupier? WWJD and OWS
I agree. Let them print money. Anyone dumb enough to take it deserves every cent of its value. LOL
That experiment would run out of gas after about one transaction.
(What in the wide wide world of sports is that?)
Jesus said to Fast Moving Angel, “I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man or woman comes to the Father except by Me, John 14:6
The devil led Him up to a high place and showed Him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to Him, I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be yours. Luke 4:5-7 NIV
So what happened then Nana ???
Good question little Grasshopper...
Since none of that was the devil’s to give away,
The LORD Jesus Christ answered , “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.’” Luke 4:8 NIV
Where’s the source for those scriptures ???
Amen my friend - this movement has nothing whatsoever to do with the Judeo-Christian tradition and everything to do with a Marxist view that can only bring misery. These smelly hippies are too ignorant to realize that they are the brownshirts of the neo-Marxist Obama movement. They are too ignorant to realize how ironic their fundamental world view is - anarchists for totalitarianism.
I bet it wasn’t: Shall not Covet.
paraphrase of verses from the koran like: 2:190-191, 2:193, 3:12, 3:151-152, 4:89, 5:33, 8:12-13, 8:67, 9:5, 9:73
General Jackson, so far as I know, wasn’t a minister.
I wonder if they'd like a discussion of John 14:6, Acts 4:12, or perhaps Isaiah 42:8?
Jesus doesn't share the stage with the fake gods.
I’m surprised a Muslim caring about the direction of Mecca was ever in the tent, seeing that the Buddha and Jesus are still there.
Wonder where they put the temples to Baal and the Asteroth poles.
One false god or another..
The only people who claim Buddha is a god are non-Buddhists. :-)
