Sometimes I thank “the Lord” for people who have common sense to discern between blind religious beliefs and common sense.
They were responding the Catholics Bishops Conference of Indiaâ€™s support to two churches in London who banned yoga classes on the grounds that it is rooted in Hindu philosophy and therefore un-Christian.
Said Wilson Mendis, a businessman from Colaba, â€œI donâ€™t care about any church or Cardinal banning yoga. I will continue practising it because it keeps my body fit.â€
â€œThe church has also banned the use of contraceptive for Christians. Should one adhere to such rules?â€ he asked.
It seems some bishops somewhere banned yoga.
Dont these bishops have other more important problems to take care of, instead of trying to ban yoga.
And I bet you there will be a whole bunch of otherwise “educated” people who will defend the bishops and their religious diktats.
I know one for sure.
