    Default Pat Robertson advises against yoga...it tricks people into praying to a Hindu God

    far as I'm concerned the worst part of yoga is that it tricks people into releasing huge foul farts. I was kicked out of a yoga class because I couldn't stop laughing at a fellow students "full metal jacket" fart (talk about a high muzzle velocity)

    Pat Robertson is reminding me more and more of the elderly uncle who hasn't kept in touch with the real world, but is more than willing to tell you how things were done "back in my day"



    Pat Robertson Claims Yoga Forces People To Pray 'To A Hindu Deity'
    The Huffington Post | By Antonia Blumberg

    Pat Robertson has some words of caution for anyone considering taking up yoga.

    Responding to a viewer's question posed during Tuesday's episode of "The 700 Club,” Robertson claimed that the ancient mindfulness practice tricks people into "praying to a Hindu deity." During yoga lessons, he said, participants unknowingly repeat mantras "in Hindu" -- though Robertson did not say whether he has ever personally taken a yoga class.

    “You don’t know what the Hindu says, but actually it’s a prayer to a Hindu deity and so it sounds like gibberish," Robertson argued. "So you’re saying ‘kali, kali, kali,’ but you’re praying to a Hindu deity."

    Yoga has a long and ancient connection to Hindu spirituality, but modern practice is often divorced from these religious roots, as many experts have pointed out.

    The real reasons to do yoga vary from person to person but often include moving toward personal growth, mindfulness and physical and emotional flexibility. As Swami Narayanda, director of the Sivananda Yoga Vendanta Center, told The Huffington Post in December:

    "The goal is to achieve better physical, mental and spiritual health and to achieve happiness through achieving peace of mind."

    Pat Robertson 'Shocked' That Women Watch Porn, Enjoy Erotic Novels Like 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'

    Conservative Christian Pat Robertson said he's shocked that some women watch porn.

    The religious right's controversial elder statesman brought up the subject during one of his recent "700 Club" talk show segments, in which he expressed surprise at the success of erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey."

    Turning to his co-host, Kristi Watts, Robertson asked whether there was "anything in porn that attracts you?" A rather stunned Watts said "no," but Robertson used the exchange as a segue into the topic of women and porn.

    "We always thought this was a male thing, a boy thing, a guy thing," Robertson said, "But now it looks like 30 percent of women are involved in pornography."

    Robertson also seemed surprised by the runaway success of British author E.L. James' erotic "Fifty Shades" trilogy. The bestsellers were so hot, Barnes and Noble credited the series for a revenue bump, reporting a lower loss than expected in first quarter sales.

    "Fifty Shades" is a salacious, if simplistic, saga involving a dashing, wealthy bachelor, a virginal young ingenue, and many, many sex scenes involving various BDSM themes.

    Calling author James a "housewife-y type" from "some little town in England," Robertson was at a loss to explain the phenomenon. The outspoken preacher was getting no help from Watts, of course, who had already sworn off pornography in all its forms. (For his part, Robertson said he found porn in all its forms "boring.")

    "Who would have thought?" Robertson said.

    In fact, the popularity of "Fifty Shades" notwithstanding, recent studies have shown that more and more women are watching porn -- and the number of women admitting a porn addiction is also rising.

    In 2010, a survey in Australia found 30 percent of women watched porn, as compared to 70 percent of men, according to the New York Daily News.

    In the United States, one of the first support groups for women addicted to porn was founded by a devout Christian, Crystal Renaud, a counselor and the author of "Dirty Girls Come Clean." Renaud told The Guardian that female porn addiction is "widespread and silent."

    "Porn and sexual addiction has always been referred to as a man's problem," she said. "But for women it's an unspoken struggle. We have to give them the opportunity to say: 'Me too.'"

    In an unusual appearance meant to both humanize porn stars and raise awareness about the dangers of porn addiction, adult film superstar Ron Jeremy recently visited a Michigan church, telling the congregation that porn stars, too, believe in God.

    Why does anyone care what Pat Robertson says?

    He's either crazy, clueless, or both.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I agree with the first part of your comment, as for crazy and clueless? I think both.
    He gives Conservatives a bad name.

    I'm a lesbian trapped in a mans body and I watch porn. What's the big deal.

    I have never understood the Christian preoccupation with other people's sex lives. It's just weird. Getting horny is like getting hungry. Your body is specifically programmed to do it. If there is a God, it was his intention that you sometimes become overwhelmed by this feeling and act on it, either alone or with someone else.

    And treating such feelings and actions as "Satanic" is just mind-control madness. I suppose Robertson actually BELIEVES these things, but it's really just a method to get people riled and afraid so they will voluntarily fund his tax-exempt corporation.

    I think Daisy hit the nail on the head. "Back in my day this is how we did things." Robertson is out of touch and has been for some time.

    Speaking of yoga pants, this reminds me.

    Going to my sons basketball game the other night, walking up the bleachers to find a seat, and there is a rather large lady unfortunately at my eye level sitting next to the stairs up, wearing yoga pants proudly displaying both her camel toe and her gunt.

    I might need counseling.
