Safety Warning: Keep Away from the Dalai Lama

While we’re on the subject of Florida, Pastor Mariano Yeo has an explanation for the hurricane. It’s all the fault of the Dalai Lama and the University of Miami:

Yeo believes the Dalai Lama is the world’s foremost proponent of idolatry. “Everywhere he goes disaster follows him,” Yeo observes. “The University of Miami conferred an honorary doctorate on him right before the hurricanes hit,” he notes. Yeo also correlated the unusual timing of earthquakes following Dalai Lama visits to India and Southern California.

Erm…”visits” to India? He actually lives there…

Speaking to ASSIST, Yeo also warns against Buddhist statues:

“Most Western Christians think idols are harmless,” he says. “But idols defile the land and attract demons to come into the area.”

As someone raised in the Philippines, Yeo is also able to pronounce that Buddhism and Islam are the “twin towers of evil”.

Alas, Pastor Yeo has a very low internet profile, although Focus on the Family once covered a zoning dispute he had over his storefront Shalom Alliance Fellowship in California. His current church is the websiteless Little Saigon Community Outreach.

Pastor Yeo’s warning comes two years after pastors in Austria prayed against the Kalachakra for World Peace, a Dalai Lama plot in Europe. As Charisma reported:

Pastors in Austria have been rallying international prayer over a major 12-day Buddhist celebration they fear could weaken the gospel’s impact in Europe and see the region slip deeper into spiritual bondage…

They say that similar rituals have been staged in other key European cities as part of “what seems to be a clear strategy aimed at bringing Europe under the influence of the spirits of Tibetan Buddhism,” and urge Christians to pray that official support for the event will be withdrawn.
