I was turned down for a gig today.
That, I can handle.
What I can't handle is......
the reason I was given.
".....yoga does not align with Christian principles..."
That was enough to make me get latte #2 at Panera.
"Lower your expectations, Tina."
"People who don't get it, don't GET IT."
Lots of things running through my mind.
YOU KNOW, I normally do not entertain religious or political debate. At all.
But I'm just bothered by this today.
And what's more, I happen to know that they have Judo classes at this very location (plus lots of other events and activities of all shapes and sizes).
So I investigate a little about Judo. Because now I'm genuinely curious about Judo "principles."
Please do understand, Dear Reader, I have ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY nothing against anyone who practices Judo! But.....the primary objective is "throwing one's opponent to the ground"???? (this from several sources)
Now THERE'S Christianity at its best for ya, eh? Makes me aspire to be one for sure, how about you?
I'm really trying hard to wrap my mind around this.
This - the fact that.....
I am teaching deep breathing, correct posture, stretching exercises, and relaxation, in a non-competitive, non-judgmental and non-harmful manner and environment and that does not align with Christian principles; yet throwing someone to the ground does? I think somebody just gave Christianity a BADDDDDD name. God bless them.
