>This just in from ISBL correspondent, and Round-The-Way-Gay, Neal:
It seems that Southern Baptist Seminary President Albert Mohler is calling for all Christians to avoid……
The Other Religions?
None of the above.
Mohler wants Christians to stop doing………yoga. He says the stretching and meditative discipline derived from Eastern religions is not a Christian pathway to God, and he objects to “the idea that the body is a vehicle for reaching consciousness with the divine,” and adds, “That’s just not Christianity.”
Huh? WTF? Huh?
Mohler says 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.”
And, as it happens, Crazy Like Mohler has some friends.
Nutjob and Chief Wack-a-Doo Pat Robertson has taken to calling the chanting and other spiritual components of yoga “really spooky,” while California megachurch asshat pastor John MacArthur says yoga is a “false religion.”
And, get this, even Muslim clerics have banned Muslims from practicing yoga.
Muslims and Baptists agree on something?
See, I thought yoga was mostly about exercises and stretching and not just about Eastern mysticism. And even if it isn’t, well, really Mr. Mohler, really?
