732: L.O.L. #40: R.C.UNI BANS YOGA!

Once again the church makes itself a laughing stock by its actions. It doesn’t need outsiders to mock it, as it can make a fool of itself perfectly well without any outside assistance whatever.  Today’s example of the church shooting itself in the foot comes from the Benedictine College in Kansas where yoga classes have been banned because of  fears the practice “has some potential for eastern mysticism.” College President Stephen Minnis said he was unsure if the “spiritual harm” of yoga would affect the college campus but it was “better to be safe than sorry.” After the Archbishop of Kansas had expressed his concerns, the University introduced stretching and breathing classes under the name “Lifestyle Fitness.”

You couldn’t make it up.
