Yoga, The Enemy of Christianity?

Letting The Demons In

Christians, at least the fundamentalist or evangelical version, if you listen to them, will likely tell you that they are under attack, in fact suffering from persecution.

These attacks are coming at them from all quarters, the dark world of Islam, the secular humanists, Teletubbies, the fiction of Dan Brown, and now…get ready, Yoga.

In this video Mark Martin and Wendy Griffith of CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) inform the audience that Yoga can be dangerous to Christians because it “contains a spiritual component.”

CBN is the network that brings you Pat Robertson and his 700 Club where we’ve learned such things as the Haitian earthquake was God’s punishment for Haiti making a “pact with the devil” in exchange for liberation from the French and that Katrina was punishment for New Orleans’ sins.

The video is over four minutes long but you’ll probably get the point in less than half of that, but, watch the guy’s body language and his attempt at displaying a nodding, knowing gravitas.

Yoga? Dangerous? Demons? There is an inclination toward paranoia among these folks that completely baffles me. They purport to be afraid of nearly everyone and everything that is not…them.

What happened to their much vaunted “faith?” Of course, with the Pope traveling around in the Pope-mobile surrounded by four inches of armor plate and a platoon of guys with automatic weapons I guess that faith thing has been laid aside.

    Of course they want to believe they are persecuted, because it’s one of the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed are the persecuted.”

    Why are the Christians always so filled with fear and judgment?
    If their Lord Jesus really did win the battle once and for all
    then why do they seem to believe their fears more than their Christ?
    If indeed they have any confidence in their Lord Jesus and their professed beliefs
    they should get a grip, drink a big cup of shut the hell up and leave all of us non-superstitious and rational people alone.
    We do not need or appreciate your fearful and crazy comments on what we do.
    The history of Christianity and the absolute insanity of its beliefs
    are epic in size and destruction.
    Its practitioners should be publicly confronted on Christian history
    and its wickedness.

    They sound so normal. It’s sad that they are so filled with fear to the point of insanity.
