Banned: Baby Yoga, Stupid Names, and Excuses

Last week, a church has banned a children's baby yoga group from using a church hall for their meetings:

A TODDLER group has been banned from a church hall in Taunton - because their yoga lessons were deemed unchristian.

Teacher Louise Woodcock was told her Yum Yum Yoga classes for pre-school children would affect their spiritual life in a way the church disagreed with. [...]

Silver Street minister the Rev Simon Farrar said some toddler groups used the church hall.

But he added: "We are a Christian organisaton and when we let rooms to people, we want them to understand that they must be fully in line with our Christian ethos.

"Clearly yoga impinges on the spiritual life of people in a way which we as Christians don't believe is the same as our ethos.

In other news, the recent shenanigans of a Chinese couple naming a child "@" will never happen in Venezuela: authorities there are banning stupid names!

The National Electoral Council in the past week laid out that proposal in a draft bill circulated to city offices in Caracas.

If approved by the National Assembly, the bill could let authorities turn down names like some of the more unusual monikers currently on the voter rolls: Edigaith, Mileidy, Leomar and Superman.

... a Russian mayor had banned excuses:

Mr Kuzmin said city officials should help improve people's lives and solve their problems, not make excuses.

The list of 27 forbidden phrases includes "there's no money", "we're having lunch", "the working day is over", "somebody else has the documents" and "I think I was off sick at the time".

Mr Kuzmin warned in a statement that "the use of these expressions by city administration officials while speaking to the head of the city will speed their departure".

I am glad to see ministers propogating BS they know nothing about. I guess that is what some are "trained" for. Personally, I think TaeBo and Jazzersize are tools of the devil. Hope they stop them as well.
