Funny how if only one parent finds any mention whatsoever of religion, they can have it banned in no time. Hindu and Muslim are, of course, exempt.

These parents have issues with the type of religion that goes with the type of yoga being taught at the elementary school. They don't want THAT type of religion being taught to there kids. Well the class is optional. Also, I guess they have no issues with Christmas or Easter being celebrated at there child's school. There religion is not being taught with this type of yoga. That is why they don't like it.

Yoga is fine, but the instructor may not
be. Meditate on that.

We've come far from "In God We Trust" (simple as that)

The religion has been stripped out so that there's only yoga exercise. The parents who filed the lawsuit are nut jobs and they lost.
