I am a devout Catholic. I go to Chruch on Sundays {when I'm not sick or on vacation}, but I belong to a fairly open-minded congregation. Our priest is probably one of the most open-minded people I've ever met and he is good friends with a lot of doctors. There are positive aspects to yoga. I personally do not do it, but I've heard that it helps cancer patients and people who have been in some sports related accidents. It also helps pregnant ladies for when they have to deliver, thereby reducing the stress on the mother, baby {or in some cases, babies} and the harried husband/fiance/boyfriend. I think Mr. Mohler and Pat Robinson {whose brain cells probably started deteriorating when he reached puberty} are so narrow-minded, that they won't listen to anything aside from their views.

Tsem tulku rinpoche believes that the yoga such as that of Naropa is part of buddhism but it is not contrary to chritianity as he believes that jesus is a Buddha and those who have faith in him and practice his sadhana will achieve Nirvana

I've never done yoga, but this Mohler character is such an ***hole. Not only does he know where everybody is headed when they die, now he's also an expert on how to become flexible in this life.
