Quote# 46053

[Getting kids to stay in shape is evil?]

I'd write a letter to the school board. If you don't want to, give me the address to that school board and I'll write it for you. Here's the definition for Yoga.

1. a school of Hindu philosophy advocating and prescribing a course of physical and mental disciplines for attaining liberation from the material world and union of the self with the Supreme Being or ultimate principle.
2. any of the methods or disciplines prescribed, esp. a series of postures and breathing exercises practiced to achieve control of the body and mind, tranquillity, etc.
3. union of the self with the Supreme Being or ultimate principle.

Something like this can open the door to allowing Christian practices back into the schools. Of course, the down side is that this would allow other religions to sneak their way into the school as well. Unless, of course, they worship peanut butter.

Anyway.. it only took one woman to get prayer out of school. Maybe it'll only take one to get it back into school. Or, at the least, get Yoga back out of school.

I do worship peanut butter. It's great! You can put it on anything and it'll taste better. Sometimes I put a little bit in my hair if I'm having a bad day...

What's your point, Kenny?

In many ways, I find peanut butter more palatable than Jehovah.

Yoga is breathing and stretching. Its fabulous for your body and its a great way for kids to exercise if they're not into the competitive team BS that most PE classes ram down their throats. Its not freaking demonic.

The peanut butter thing is in reference to the fact that this woman's kids can't bring peanut butter for lunches because a kid in their school has an allergy. You wouldn't believe the bitching on this thread about it. More Christian compassion for others *snerk*.

Oh for fuck's sake! What the hell kind of Encyclopedia Moronica did they pull that shit out of? Because I'm telling you, I've seen lots of socialites and executive types do yoga, and not a single one has gone Hindu yet.

I've said it before and will again: Why do these idiots think that a harried high school administrator who can't even get the football team to stop taking steroids can chase an all-knowing, all-powerful God out of a school?

PS--I'm veggie and love my peanut butter, but damn, I could go without in a shared cafeteria to help someone who might go into anaphylactic shock over it! And these people have the nerve to say they're pro-child!

Why is it you fundy morons always choose the least common definition of a word and then throw a fit over it? The word "yoga"--in probably every part of the Western World outside of a Hindu Temple--is always used in the sense of the second definition you blindingly ignorant fuck.

Either you're all incredibly stupid and don't realize that words can have more than one meaning that can exclude the other meanings or you do this shit on purpose. Either way, stop. It makes you look bad.

"Something like this can open the door to allowing Christian practices back into the schools. Of course, the down side is that this would allow other religions to sneak their way into the school as well. Unless, of course, they worship peanut butter."

Ah, so good ol' "Christian practices" can just be allowed back in but them other Satanic, evil, vile and disgusting "pagan" religions will have to "sneak their way into the school".

You're a moron. If anyone is trying to sneak their bullshit religion into school it's you Christians.

"Anyway.. it only took one woman to get prayer out of school. Maybe it'll only take one to get it back into school. Or, at the least, get Yoga back out of school."

Prayer was never taken out of schools you uneducated fundy. All students in any school in the United States is freely permitted to "pray" anytime they like assuming it's not disruptive, etc. It's the teachers, you moron, that can't initiate, lead, recite or force the students to join you halfwit. Well, unless they're in a private school, then they can do damn near anything they want on your dime.

Heh, I've had my girlfriend whine endlessly until she found what (quote) "Woo-less yoga", so the fundy does have a point.

Of course, it's not the point he wants to make, but still.

Kenny JS is the Einstein of fundies. There isn't 1 in 1000 that could understand this concept.

So, do you want religion in schools or not? Either allow all of them, or disallow all of them. Why should your particular religion get any special treatment?

OMG!! Somebody understands why you need a separation of church and state! Quick, somebody fetch this man a cookie!

Someone...please...revoke the cookie...

Yoga actually might accomplish something, unlike prayer.

Everytime they rag on Yoga I get a a little annoyed. I think I figured out why they hate it so much. ( I know it's not for everyone and that's fine, but don't call it demonic)

I know one reason is that we are not on knees the whole time looking up at the cloud formations and waiting for a trumpet to blow praising Jesus.

At end of every class the teacher says "Namaste" which means "the light in me bows to the light in you". The whole philosphy is based on that concept that everyone has a light (or the divine) in them and we are not separate
from each other. They want everyone to be treated equally, they want no one to suffer and wish for a peaceful exisistence for everyone.

This goes against everything the fundamental christian stands for. They think they are better than everyone, they love to think about people in the lake of fire, and I think about 75% would kill someone in an instant if they weren't of afraid of going to hell.

I don't understand the problem with the definition of Yoga either. I thought when they all got suck up to heaven they were going to marry Jesus. Isn't that a union with them and their supreme being?

As for the peanut butter thing, it doesn't really surprise me that these good true loving christians want to punish a poor child for having an allergy that could very well kill them.

"Of course, the down side is that this would allow other religions to sneak their way into the school as well."

As ever, the fundies don't want equal treatment, they want special treatment. If their god is supposedly all-powerful, why do they never quite believe he could win in a fair fight?

Something like this can open the door to allowing Christian practices back into the schools.

And vice-versa. In Albemarle County, VA, the religious right fought to have the schools distribute the announcement of a Bible camp. Then an organization holding a multicultural holiday event demanded the school distribute their literature, too, and the school couldn't refuse. The Bible-thumpers got all up in arms about the school distributing pagan material. In the end, the school district decided to stop all flyers, including the Boy Scouts and community events, so everybody lost. The Whole Story

You forgot #4
4. A form of exercise that is feared by imbecilic brainwashed American religious extremists because they are told by their pastor/pundit to hate everything but themselves.

"Something like this can open the door to allowing Christian practices back into the schools."
Well, since schools preach atheism, and atheism is a religion, that door is already open, isn't it? Make up your mind.

"Unless, of course, they worship peanut butter. "
You poor fucking dear, you can't bring peanut butter to school, oh how you are oppressed. Want some cheese to go with that?

"Maybe it'll only take one to get it back into school"
I recommend you tattoo your rant onto your butt, then go to the school and strip naked and wave your ass around. THEN people will take you with the seriousness you most definitely warrant.

Wait, I'm confused. Something that could open the door to allowing whatever banned "Christian" practices were hoped for, is BAD to fundies?

Methinks someone's had a bit too much of that special Kool-Aid...

When I do Yoga I’m far too busy holding the stretch and remembering to breath properly to worry about demons or “attaining liberation from the material world and union of the self with the Supreme Being” or whatever else you’re so afraid of happening. Yoga is great exercise, great for the physique and very calming to the emotional state. Obviously pure evil.

8/28/2008 5:43:19 PM

With all of the REAL problems in the world, this person is concerned about yoga in the schools????

We want our religion to be treated like it's special but we don't want anyone else to be treated that way!

Unless, of course, they worship peanut butter.
Go to hell.

Why not combine the two? PB&J!
