Disco Buddha!

Despite being so painfully Catholic it hurts, there is one aspect of living that Catholicism has managed to evade: The interior of my house.

Disco Buddha was a random Little Saigon find, and mom is most proud of the fact that she was able to bargain down from $40 USD to $30 USD. This kind of leads me to think... are there people out there just like my mom? Do non-Christians keep Disco Jesus around at home?
