The leader of a Southern Baptist church, Albert Mohler, recently advised his 'flock' that yoga is un-Christian and should be avoided. He claims that practicing yoga opens people up to a non-Christian lifestyle. Apparently, according to Mohler, stretching and meditating leads people away from the path to ... whatever. And possibly may even lead to opposite sex dancing which has to be the worst imaginable offense against all that is holy.
Yoga? Stretching? Meditating?
Frankly, I'm more than a little worried about where this country is headed. What is scary is not that nut case Baptist ministers say things like that but that they get any attention to begin with. For example, why is witsendmagazine devoting any space at all to carp like this?
Except that this type of thought seems to take hold of people and then they run with it.
So this just in.
Stretch. Meditate. Practice yoga. And even more important that all of that, think. But then if you are reading this you probably already do think, stretch, meditate, and possibly even practice yoga.
