saw an article today that southern baptist leader Albert Mohler is calling for Christians to avoid yoga because it is incompatible with the teachings of Jesus. Mohler argues that Christians who practice yoga "must either deny the reality of what yoga represents or fail to see the contradictions between their Christian commitments and their embrace of yoga."
that's right Christians, it is sinful to embrace yoga and "stretch" your body and mind. "Stretching" your mind to have any peace, tranquility, enlightenment, and individual thoughts goes against the will of God (and your pastor). It must be purchased through the properly appointed, lawful agents of God. So hand over your wallets or burn in hell and purgatory for your sins.
this is yet another reason why I move further and further away from organized religion. It never seizes to amaze me how religious leaders want to dictate morality to the populous. Most of these religious leaders' stance on issues are all about power in order to have control over their constituents for their own selfish gains.
