KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Zoo has received a complaint about Buddha statues in an Asian-themed area.
David Engle, of Overland Park, Kan., complained after visiting the zoo on Sunday. He said it’s “phenomenal to me” that the zoo would put up two smiling statues of Buddha when “we can’t have a cross or a nativity scene on public property.”
Engle, who said he is Christian, called the statues idolatry and “infuriating to God.”
