Crazy Vatican Priest Says Yoga Is As Evil As ‘Harry Potter’

Taken from here.

A couple of weeks ago, we told you about one pastor who warned Christians to reject yoga because it was ‘demonic’. Now another religious official is taking that one step further and saying that all the downward dogging and headstanding and OMing we do are sending us straight to hell.

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.

The 85-year-old who was appointed by the late Pope John Paul II is standing his holy mat ground by claiming:

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.

Say what?

Yes, any of us who have been caught in double pigeon in hot yoga class may equate that to hell from time to time, but I wasn’t aware that it was a sentence for eternal damnation. We’ve been saluting the sun and bending over backwards to become better people, dammit! And yes, some of us yogis have even watched the wizardry in Harry Potter, so I guess that makes us double-doomed for the red-hot fireballs of hell.

But, let me get this straight. Exorcisms are not the same thing as magic? Telling people they are possessed by evil spirits and then performing a ritual to remove those demons is somehow more of a guarantee to the pearly gates of heaven? And stretching to become our fullest, most spiritual selves is just wrong?

Father Amorth thinks so. He went on to say:

Yoga is the Devil’s work.. All these oriental religions are based on the false belief of reincarnation.

Hell be dammed. The devil in me will be on my mat tonight.
