Is Yoga Evil?

Apparently so. At least according to Fr Jeremy Davies, chief exorcist of the Roman Catholic diocese of Westminster, quoted in The Times. It provides “.. The thin end of the wedge (soft drugs, yoga for relaxation, horoscopes just for fun and so on) is more dangerous than the thick end, because more deceptive – an evil spirit tries to make his entry as unobtrusively as possible.” [Is Yoga evil?]

Ya, right!

I'll be sure to remember this during my next stretchy-bendy class in which my mind clears of tension, my body is relieved of pain, and my awareness opens and calms. Wait, that sounds similar to meditation and prayer. Could it be that what is really objectionable is the competition? :-P
