    My school promoted western religion when we played football in gym class and they indoctrinated me in the practice of the "Hail Mary" pass.

    I was annoyed in school when people kept saying "Grace," but then I realized it was a classmate's name.

    These parents have it all wrong. Plenty of kids will be saying things like "Oh my God," and "Jesus Christ" when they see Anthony-approved girls in yoga pants bending themselves into pretzels.

    Most yoga classes have very little to nothing to do with Eastern philosophy/theology.

    Bang on.


    When I was in India I saw how they do some of the real shit. It's completely different.


    I guess if you wanted to win over Christian parents, you can tell them that Baba Ramdev, the head yogi muckety-muck over in India has claimed he can cure homosexuality in 6 months with yogs.

    I have to agree. Teaching kids to have peace of mind is totally unacceptable. Because Jeebus.

    You can't scare children into fearing eternal damnation when they're completely relaxed.
