Buddha on tabernacle - Assisi 01

A statue of Buddha over the Tabernacle in Assisi

On October 27, 1986, with due permission of John Paul II, the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhist monks of his sect placed a small statue of Buddha over the tabernacle of St. Peter Church in Assisi. The statue was encased in a glass cylinder, as shown above.

In front of the tabernacle, below, first row, was a censer in the shape of a lotus flower and to its left, a small banner with Buddhist inscriptions. Two pagan religious books were placed on either side of the tabernacle along with candles that burned in honor of the idol.

On the second row below, Buddhist monks adored the idol, and prayed that all "may soon attain the state of Buddha."

Isn't this sacrilege the "abomination of the desolation" placed in the sacred place?
