Today, I told my mom I've been taking yoga lessons, and that it'd be cool if she took some with me. She immediately went on a rant, calling yoga "satanic" and accusing me of trying to get her into "devil worship". Well, that's the last time I try to patch our relationship up. FML

I don't understand how Satan and yoga have anything to do with each other.
I think your mother needs medical help, you might want to consider a mental institute or something.

My extremely religious "Christian" sister would think the same way. She thinks all other religions are cults that secretly worship satan hidden behind their Buddhist/ Hindu gods. Since yoga is often done as a ritual by those other religions as a "spiritual practice", she would tie it together and say it's all evil.

Fanatic! *sigh* there's one in every family!


Yeah, some Christian fanatics believe that everything that is not of God is of Satan. Since Yoga came from the far East, with their mystical polytheism, it must be the work of the great deceiver. So ya know, don't stretch or you're going to hell.

Amusingly enough, Catholics think the Protestant religions are cults too. Found this out when I married into a catholic family and the priest saw "7th Day Adventist" on my birth certificate.

Well! There's even conflict within the Protestants church itself, that's why there are so many denominations. I'm not really religious anymore but was indoctrinated young and pretty knowledgable about the subject. It's funny how every church thinks they're the ones that got it right and those others aren't considered "real Christian" in their mind set. Lol

No, you jackass, if it's demonic you want a devil's trap so any demons you summon while doing yoga get stuck inside it. A pentagon isn't going to do anything to trap the demons.

Actually you mean pentacle. Interestingly my own religion uses that and it used to be a Christian symbol similar to the cross but as history went on the meaning changed and it ended up as two different symbols at the same time. A pentacle and a pentagram the pentacle is with the tip of the 5 pointed star pointing up the pentagram is with the tip pointing down. Satanists use the pentagram but they don't use the pentacle normally
