A few Christians in Quesnel, B.C. are concerned that having their kids do yoga exercises in school will throw them into the lap of Satan.
"Supposedly, we do not allow religion in schools -- and yoga is a religion," said cattle rancher Audrey Cummings, 68, who filed a complaint with the Quesnel school board and the Education Ministry over the Action Schools program.
Yoga turns kids' minds toward Hindu gods, Cummings said.
"If you're not seeking the God of the Bible, His power, then by default you're in the other camp," Cummings said. "The other source of supernatural power is Satan."
The school argues that they are merely employing a series of stretching exercises, not the entire Hindu Metaphysic, in an attempt to combat childhood obesity. But the parents feel its a slippery slope. First the kids do yoga, next thing they're praying to a dancing, six armed elephant.
