WTF: Vatican Declares Yoga As Satanic

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFitnessYoga

Yoga Satan

You're kidding us, right?

No? The Vatican really declared yoga as Satanic?

That's stupid. Flat out.

The line of reasoning is this: if you practice yoga, it leads to a belief in Hinduism. If you believe in Hinduism, that's just false. Also, apparently it can degenerate into a cult of the body.

And then, the Vatican’s own chief exorcist Gabriele Amorth said one of the most absurd things we've ever heard:

“Practising yoga is Satanic, it leads to evil just like reading Harry Potter.”

Obviously they know nothing about yoga — it has nothing to do with Satanism, or Satanic sects.

We're just absolutely stunned that anything like Harry Potter or yoga is in the Vatican's radar, as there HAVE to be more pressing issues. It's like they're pulling things out of a hat and making them part of their weekly episodes of Yep, That's Evil!

And mind you, we aren't referring to all Catholics here. We even have some Catholics very dear to us who live and breathe yoga, and can't for the life of them understand why the two can't walk hand in hand. Not all Catholics believe this stuff, regardless of what the Vatican says (and the current Pope has expressed similar ideas to the exorcist, back in 1999).

It's those followers that we love: keeping an open mind while keeping the faith.
