I sincerly doubt his comments will curb the minds of those who practice yoga, but none-the-less, they are making the news.
Excerpt from Blisstree.com
Father Gabriel Amorth, the Chief Exorcist at the Vatican (who has carried out more than 70,000 exorcisms during his tenure) not only claims that yoga is the devil’s work, but it’s also just as sinful as Harry Potter.
“Practicing yoga brings evil as does reading Harry Potter. They may both seem innocuous but they both deal with magic and that leads to evil.”
“Yoga is the Devil’s work. You think you are doing it for stretching your mind and body but it leads to Hinduism. All these oriental religions are based on the false belief of reincarnation.”
A little far fetched & a wee bit nutty if you ask me. He’s 85 if that helps you understand where he’s coming from any better.
