Father Chandler said the church was ‘misled’ by Miss Withell’s booking because he claimed that, at first, the hall was booked for pilates and then he found out it was also for spiritual yoga.

Pilates okay, Yoga bad.

I take a yoga class at my Methodist Church. I wouldn't call it relaxing or very spiritual. In fact, brutal is the word that comes to my mind.
My church offers all kinds of free classes that are just about having fun and getting together with other church members.

This is just silly. Obviously, no one is going to a Catholic church to practice Hinduism.

I have a list of things I do in my spiritual walk, that if I were to share it with fellow Christians, they would basically disown me and say I was unChristian. I know this from experience.

And if you look at the things that I do that they find objectionable, it doesn’t come down to doing inappropriate things, it comes to thinking inappropriate things.

I always heard a group of Christian friends trashing a certain pastors book, and out of curiosity I checked out the book. What they found objectionable, is that the man imagined holding the hem of Jesus’ robe, while he was in prayer. They said that was visualizing, visualization was new age, so they trashed him.

Many times I felt that while God is doing all he can to bring people into his house, some Christians are doing all they can to keep people out.
