Christians would it bother you...

to have a Buddha incense or candle holder in your home, if it were just for a decoration, or would it bother you to have it?
I'm just curious. My husband is a Christian but I am not and I have a Buddha candle holder and his parents said that if it were them they wouldn't allow it in "their" house, but this is my house too, not just my husbands, lol but he doesn't have a problem with it, btw, I was just wondering if a Buddha candle would bother any other Christians. 'm not praying to it or anything ;)

  • It wouldn't bother me, b/c it wouldn't be anything to me personally but decoration. But I am laid back about that kind of thing

  • This reminds me of when my grandparents commented on the pentacle tapestry we have hanging in our living room. It's none of their business what you have to decorate your house or to use for religious purposes. It's awesome that you and your DH are a religiously blended family.

  • I don't have one, because I don't believe in the religion it represents. That being said, they don't "bother" me by any means. Some are quite pretty.

  • wat too uptight, lets let live and let live. Just because you might believe dosen't mean someone else can't.

  • I wouldn't have anything with Buddah on it in my house, but that's me. If your husband doesn't have a problem with it, then you shouldn't worry abou it.

  • I wouldn't have anything with Buddha in my house either.

    Answer by beelive at 6:07 PM on May. 15, 2011

  • No but I wonder why you have it if you do not pray to it or anything? What is the purpose?
