UK Christian Fundamentalists Ban Yoga

These Europeans were living among barbaric and brutal medieval customs in the middle ages till the ancient wisdom of Hinduism and Buddhism reached them through the efforts of the great Mongol conqueror Chenghiz Khan.

They became followers of Lord Krishna, also known as Vishnu, one of whose incarnations is Lord Buddha. Unable to pronounce the Sanskrit name of God (Krishna) properly, they started calling Him "Christ".

Not being intelligent or enlightened enough to understand the intellectually deep philosophy of Hinduism (or even the simplified version called Buddhism), they collected a set of stories from the Buddhist Tripitaka and Jataka tales, changed the Sanskrit names of Indo-Aryan characters like the Gautam Buddha into Hebrew/Aramaic names like Jesus/Abraham/etc, added some fanciful stories of their own over several centuries, and called this collection of fairy tales the Bible.

Bible literally means "the book". These ignorant fools of medieval Europe had never had the fortune of having any other book before. The Bible was the first and only book they had ever come across.

Compare this with the millions of Sanskrit verses full of ancient wisdom that had been composed compiled and passed down over hundreds of generations in India and China.

Today these ignorant Christian fundamentalist morons of Europe still do not know the first thing about God, or about where their "religion" came from.

Indians are giving them the medical wisdom and knowledge of Yoga for free, to help their obese fat and overweight kids, pot-bellied men, and fat women improve their health. And their Christian fundamentalist Churches -- misguided, ignorant, and unaware of its origin as a place of worship for Lord Krishna -- are stopping them from learning this wisdom that can save and improve their lives.

You can take a horse to the water, but you cannot make it drink.

These European Christian fundamentalist morons are free to live in ignorance. We don't care whether they learn Yoga or not. We do not care whether they live life better or not. They can do Yoga, or they can buy toxic slimming medications; it is their business.

The real problem happens when they send their narrow-minded "missionaries" and "evangelists" to convert Indian Hindus and Buddhists from these enlightened Indian faiths to their misguided and ignorant European "religion".

The Times of India reports:

UK churches ban yoga group
1 Sep 2007, 0110 hrs IST,IANS

LONDON: Two local churches have banned a group from conducting yoga classes because the ancient practice is allegedly "un-Christian". The yoga class for children was to be run by Louise Woodstock at the Silver Street Baptist Church and St James' Church of England in Taunton, Somerset. But church ministers this week banned it and branded yoga as a "sham" and "un-Christian".

Woodstock, who was turned away from the churches on Thursday, said: "I couldn't believe it when they suddenly said I couldn't have the hall any more because yoga is against their Christian ethos. It's crazy because we're talking about kids pretending to be animals and doing exercise routines to rhymes." "The churches are being narrow-minded. I explained to the church that my yoga is a completely non-religious activity. There is no dogma involved."

Reverend Simon Farrar of the Baptist Church withdrew his consent for using the hall for a children's activity group after discovering it was for yoga. St James's church also barred her for the same reason. Rev Farrar said: "Clearly, yoga impinges on the spiritual life of people in a way which we as Christians don't believe is the same as our ethos."

Rev Tim Jones, the vicar of St James' church, told The Telegraph: "The philosophy of yoga cannot be separated from the practice of it, and any teacher of yoga must subscribe to the philosophy. As Christians, we believe that this philosophy is false and not something we wish to encourage."

You're nuts, dude. Judaism (of which Christianity is an offshoot) developed in a totally different strain from Hinduism. Judaism and Christianity (and Islam, for that matter) believe in one god, not thousands. And "Christ", as you call him, was actually a man named Jesus that Roman NON-CHRISTIAN sources confirm existed around 3-30 AD. Whether or not he is your savior is up to you. The point is that he existed, was a Jew, and is in no way connected to Krishna. Where do you get this nonsense?

In regards to your article, I'm a Christian that practices Yoga. Those churches that "banned" it are retarded.
