You're Going To Hell For Doing Yoga
« on: September 29, 2010, 01:55:12 AM »
Louisville's very own, Rev. Albert Mohler says Christians cannot do yoga and keep with their faith.  Many of you are probably familiar with Mohler as he's very influencial with conservative leaders and has been on national media countless times.  A few years ago, he came out and said he believed homosexuality is probably genetic, but said science should find ways to change that in the womb.

On another religious topic, a new Pew research study found Atheists and Agnostics have more knowledge about Christianity and the Bible.

Yoga?

Of all the things I am going to hell for, Yoga?

That's like giving Jeffrey Dahmer a ticket for illegal use of corrosive chemicals :)

What do you mean old news?  The Yoga story just aired last week and the Pew study aired today.  However, I wouldn't be surprised that other religious leaders have talked about yoga being the devil's work in the past.  And, I'm sure studies have been done in the past about religious knowledge.

Last week is Old News, Teddala. Welcome to the Intert00bz. I toyed with posting that thing back then but decided against it because I realised it would only attract asinine observations from HeckLifter.

And he needs no encouragement.  ::)

As for the atheist thing? Well we always knew that.

During college, the women in my hippy coop did the Jane Fonda work out tapes (enjoying the irony cause they were hippy chicks). They'd invite one guy to each session, and then one of them would fuck the guy that evening.  They were on the pill or used IUDs, smoked clove cigarettes, ate tofu lasagna, and read french literature.  Participating was a ticket straight to commie pinko hell.

Well, of course we do. We are smart asses of the world who as children say innappropriate things in Sunday school class like "Noah really got two of every creature on Earth on an ark. Are you serious?" and then goes to the library to add up the weights of various large mammals, multiplying by two of course.

I felt compelled to post this video to show not all Louisville religious leaders are so ridiculous.  Diane Sawyer comes home to Louisville where she was born and raised to see how we are doing during this economic situation.  She visits a church group that welcomes all faiths and helps others.  She actually comes home very regularly to visit her mom.

One time there was a lesson using Zodiac in a textbook for a communication class. One of the students couldn't participate because she said her church taught that Horoscopes were the devil's work.

Jane Fonda, French lit, birth control, indiscriminate premarital sex - surely all the devil's work.  :o

I have a coworker who goes to the UU church and she says they are open to almost anything. :)

I got 12/15, which is better than I expected. Thank you UNC-Asheville for my liberal arts education.

Does anyone know where the term "pinko commie" originated?

I think its a bit repetitive.  Pinko is a kinda faggy leftist/socialist, right?  Bleeding heart liberal type.

My classmates wrote "bleeding heart liberal" all over my high school yearbook. In North Carolina I'm seen as a bleeding heart liberal and when I was in graduate school in Los Angeles I was seen as conservative.

According to Wiki, "pinko" started in 1925.

The word pinko was coined by Time magazine in 1925 as a variant on the noun and adjective pink, which had been used along with parlor pink since the beginning of the 20th century to refer to those of leftish sympathies, usually with an implication of "effeteness".[1] In the 1920s, for example, a Wall Street Journal editorial described supporters of the progressive politician Robert La Follette as “visionaries, ne’er do wells, parlor pinks, reds, hyphenates [Americans with divided allegiance], soft handed agriculturalists and working men who have never seen a shovel.”

Here's an asinine observation.  You're a monkey.  I'll be more specific an orangutan!
