Reading Time: 4 minutes Christian waryness of yoga is based on ignorance, paranoia and religious xenophobia. Still, school boards keep prohibiting its secular practices in schools, despite benefits.

But they probably won’t pick a very good way to respond, and today I’ll show you why I say that.
Reading Time: 17 minutes When the accusations began flowing against bigot-for-Jesus Roy Moore, that movie showed us exactly why Roy Moore almost certainly committed the crimes he is accused of committing. In this movie, we see the beginnings–the roots, if you will–of the worldview that has brought Christians in that end of the religion to a place where they enthusiastically support someone who routinely preyed upon underage girls. I’ll show you those roots today, and why they inevitably lead to such abuse.
Reading Time: 13 minutes In the lifetime of this blog, we’ve talked often about how hypocritical the most fervent Christians always turn out to be. We’ve established many times that hypocrisy isn’t a fluke or aberration of the religion but an absolutely inevitable outcome of its various teachings. In the wake of some absolutely explosive new allegations against one of Christianity’s most valiant culture warriors, we turn our attention once again to this simple fact.
Reading Time: 11 minutes Robert Bentley’s case reminds us anew that once someone in a broken system gets a little taste of power, all the rules stop mattering.
