    when Firefighters for Christ (Get it? Fires of Hell?) picketed Shasta Abbey, a Zen monastery, and posted signs in town for their video about how meditation was the work of the Devil. Before that we had the Chinese-taught Fundamentalist Gold Mountain Buddhists in San Francisco who denounced us in articles such as The Demon-Pounding Pestle and The Demon-Binding Lariat in their newsletter for having a woman in charge teaching men. I came face-to-face with a member of each group.

    When one invaded a meditation session we were running in Berkeley, and started haranguing our Abbess, I turned to the meditators and explained that they did not have to be disturbed by anything going on in the room, but could simply take it as part of their meditation. I did not see this, but I am told that the interloper turned bright red and sat down.

    The Abbess had her own tales of the Catholic Truth Society picketing the Buddhist Society in London with signs reading "The Devil in Our Midst".
