Sure, yoga may seem like a calming form of exercise to you, but you must have forgotten that everything in the world that was not created by Christians is inherently evil. According to American Family Association writer Marsha West, many American Christian women see nothing wrong with going to a yoga studio instead of laying on the couch watching teevee and eating potato chips intravenously (to avoid the exercise of chewing), as God intended. But these women have been corrupted by the Devil and his hellish stretches and can no longer be called Christian at all, for they are now officially members of EASTERN RELIGIONS, which will destroy America after they've infiltrated us with the yoga. "Sadly, Christians have become worldly." How awful.
On the other hand: <i>And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.</i>
Ooooh! Nasty papercuts ...
This comment brought forth an image that has haunted me for years. In the old advertisements for &quot;Sweatin&#039; to the Oldies&quot; there was an obese woman giving a testimonial: &quot;when I first got the video, the only part I could do was clap.&quot;
Christians obviously have only a featherweight commitment to their faith. A strong, compelling theology would not be vulnerable to yoga routines.
And the most clueless...her column links to another post in which she claims that if a component of Christian exercise (What?) made its way into a public school exercise program &quot;The ACLU would file a lawsuit faster than the speed of a 56K modem.&quot;.
Now granted, this was from 2006 but really? a 56K modem? Did she recycle this column from 1996?
Honestly! As if they <i>could</i> do yoga.....
HEY! Fat and atheist over here.
OK, more &quot;apathetic&quot; than &quot;atheist&quot;, but still. . . .
Is American football still allowed by Christianity? If we can&#039;t go deep into each other&#039;s end zones, what will we do for exercise and/or recreation?
Think of all the murders committed in Buddha&#039;s name!
