People often turn to their faith to ease their minds. Now first lady Michelle Obama is hoping people will turn to churches, temples and synagogues to lose weight as well. The first lady launched a new addition to her Let's Move! campaign. Things might be changing at local services.

Starting Monday, faith-based organizations of all kinds will begin a new crusade to end childhood obesity in a generation. It's called Let's Move: Faith and Communities, and the First AME Church of Los Angeles is leading the charge....

I guess when you never go to either a Church a gym, you’re likely to confuse the two!

Hmm. Got the reversable prayer rug/excercise mat. Do the tummy squats (face to the southeast). Do them 6 times a day. Makes sense.

The left is always talking about the separation of church and state, that is until they see an opportunity to put the church under the authority of a new bureaucracy.

The first lady should push fitness in her own home first and foremost, and leave the rest of us alone until she has made some progress on...well, you know. ;o)

You weren’t gonna say her butt, were you?

No?

I didn’t think so. You’re too nice. Me too. We’re both too nice to say that.

When the foreign occupier employed the phrase 'fundamentally transforming America' two years ago, that's precisely what he meant. Zer0 has no intention of going quietly.

Seems Michelle is working to turn churches into secular organizations. If she wants kids to stay fit, she should first and foremost allow them to live. When I was brought up, I didn’t have to be concerned over mothers killing their children through abortion; it didn’t, for the most part, happen. Now it’s an everyday occurrence to the tune of thousands. This atrocity “weighs heavily” on the youth of today.

Houses of worship are to worship God, the focus is God (or gods). Turning these houses into gyms changes the focus to people focusing on themselves, their bodies. This is wrong. Only atheists would benefit.

Maybe zero will go to church when he can play BBall there.

If her husband was at church instead of playing basketball he would not have split his lip.

These people thing the church is there to serve the community it has nothing to do with God..please note mosque was not on this list

Just in time for Chanuka, when the Jews fought against the Greeks who worshiped the human body.

Are you sure she was pushing “fitness”? More likely she was pushing “fatness”. What a marxist controller she is. She is the ultimate equal-opportunity queen. What has she ever accomplished except to irritate those around her (including poor Bo)?

Materialists understand religion only as another form of social service agency with a little ‘mythology’ thrown in to differentiate from other 501(c)3s.

To a community organizer, all a church is good for is ‘organizing.’

We all know what a mosque is for: plotting the overthrow of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

However, turning gyms into places to worship God is another story, LOL!

No, ma’am...I wasn’t gonna say her butt.

I know you weren’t, either.

Furthest thing from our minds.

We’re too nice for that.
