Bad news for my girlfriend

Sorry, sweetie: a concerned viewer asked Pat Robertson whether yoga has its origins in evil.  Well, bad news: by repeating yoga mantras you’re praying to pantheistic gods and are apparently engaging in ‘spooky’ activities, though Robertson doesn’t go so far as to admit that it’s evil.

I guess we can file this one amongst all the other, um, ‘interesting’ things that Robertson has said.

    Many fundamentalists besides Robertson have this same problem with yoga. The Buddhist / Hindu elements of the mantras set them right off.

    Maybe they need someone to do “Bending To The Scriptures” ala Richard Simmons.

    Eeew! I’ll need to do a lot of heavy drinking to get that image out of my mind.

    Ok – this is scary. I just wrote a post on my blog about this exact same thing. http://twobadkitties.wordpress.com/2007/11/29/another-reason-i-dont-go-to-church/

    Egad, isn’t the combination of religious righties and Richard Simmons like mixing matter and anti-matter? In any case, I’ll be drinking with PD…

    babs67: Another case of ‘great minds think alike’!
