You know, the whole "Merry Christmas" versus "Happy Holidays" thing is getting old. At least with me. To the rest of the world it may be just revving up, but I'm over it. The emails have started up again from all the self-appointed defenders of Christmas, strongly condemning the "happy holidays" greeting. Got one the other day with the usual, 'this is not a holiday tree, it's a Christmas tree, this is not a holiday wreath, it's a Christmas wreath' etc. I understand the frustration.

Father Gabriele Amorth served as the Vatican’s chief exorcist for years now says that yoga is from satan. His reason, according to the Telegraph is that it leads to a worship of Hinduism and that "all eastern religions are based on a false belief in reincarnation”.
If you own yoga mats you likely are safe as he did not go as far as saying that they are from satan. However if you have any of the Harry Potter books you may have a slight problem as Father Gabriele said that Harry Potter is also part of this satanic broo. [sp. brew].
