A school program to fight childhood obesity that includes yoga is drawing complaints from some Christian parents in the Quesnel area in B.C.'s Cariboo region.
They say yoga is a religion, and shouldn't be taught in public schools.
Chelsea Brears, who has two children in the school system, said her son was asked to do different poses and "to put his hands together."
Brears, a Christian, said she doesn't want her children exposed to another religion during class time.
"It's not fair to take prayer out, and yet they're allowing yoga, which is religion, in our schools."
Heh.. Yoga has a spiritual/religious component to it, going back to it's origins. But its not a religion in the pure sense of the word. You can practice yoga anyway you want. Hey, think of Jesus if you want when you fold your hands and meditate or relax. It has been modified by people here in the west to suit their particular flavor. Idiots!
Burqa + Bikini = Burqini. link
CRONULLA, AUSTRALIA – It's a sweltering day, and the beach is packed with suntanned bodies.I guess whatever floats your boat eh?
Girls in swimsuits lounge on the sand while their boyfriends cradle surfboards.
Mecca Laalaa is the lone exception. Instead of a barely there bikini, she's in a burqini
- a top-to-toe two-piece lycra suit complete with hijab, or Islamic head covering.
Loose enough to preserve Muslim modesty, but light enough to enable swimming,
the burqini, taking its name from the burqa, is at the forefront of a dramatic shift
within Australia's iconic surf lifesaving clubs.
No longer wanting to be associated only with bronzed, blue-eyed action men,
Surf Life Saving Australia is attempting to better reflect the country's multicultural mix.
Ms. Laalaa is one of 24 young people of Arab descent who signed up for a 10-week surf
"Normally, I'd wear cotton trousers and a top but they get very heavy in the water.
This meets our cultural requirements," she says, preparing to go out on a beach patrol.
The burqini that she wears was specially designed to allow Muslim women like her to join
one of the surf lifesavers clubs.

It Strains Credulity How Many Different Kinds of Difference Exist
Guy: I can't believe they used an Indian family for that commercial. For the love of God, their last name was Kumar-swami!
Queer: What kind of name is that? They definitely should have used a white family.
Guy: It was a Verizon commercial, for Christ's sake. If you want to get racy, use a black family. But Kumar-swami -- that is just too much!
