Mexico is orange, the Ozarks is blue. Apparently Maldives is Prismacolor

Imagine taking acid in Maldives. Either you'd see Prismacolor^2 or it would flip everything around and you'd only see black and white.

I’d imagine that’s why it’s haram? They’re doing everything you’re supposed to do to praise god, and then not praising god. I could see why a dumb person would see that as mocking god.

Im muslim and wtf yoga isnt haram. There is absolutely no reason for yoga to be haram. These people dont have any brains wtf

Ehhhhh, I see what you mean but, it’s just such a stretch. These are just hateful fucking assholes. Plain and simple. If they didn’t have religion as an excuse, they’d find another.

Get this, [Alabama just recently lifted its decades long ban of yoga](https://www.npr.org/2021/05/21/999020140/its-now-legal-to-practice-yoga-in-alabamas-public-schools) in schools but only partially and still prohibits meditation. So they saw a bunch of calm quiet kids for once and they were like F that!


Hapelaxer

In that article they mention that Yoga is a gateway drug to Hinduism and they just can’t tolerate that


Chief_Chill

>they just can’t tolerate that Because, they're intolerant. And, if they claim they're patriots, tell them they are not, and that they're just assholes.


Poopdogs99

I left Christianity through Buddhism. But I never believed in Buddhism. But the teaching of Buddhism includes “you are enough”. And fundamental Christianity doesn’t coexist with that shit.


Den_Bover666

Also the yoga they teach in schools isn't actual yoga, its just a bunch of stretching exercises. See 'Christian Yoga' which is the same bunch of stretching exercises but they call it Christian so people don't feel guilty about their stretches. But I wonder where in the Bible, Torah or Koran it's written 'thou shalt not stretch'


BraetonWilson

That's the same reason why these Islamic extremists don't like Yoga too. These Islamists consider Yoga to be linked to Hinduism and since they consider Hinduism to be a horrible idol worshipping pagan false religion, they want to stomp out Yoga.

“We can’t have them happy and at peace! How will we get them into religion?!”


MagusUnion

You joke, but that's literally the point. Those in religion want to ensure your moral compass always points in the direction that they dictate, and that you can't find inner peace unless you appease their ideology.


IrrelevantDanger

Meditation? Doesn't that involve thinking? We certainly can't be having that Edit: or not, I guess


shinslap

Isn't meditation about *not* thinking 🤔


shenghar

There's a weird stance in some Christian (and presumably Muslim?) groups that meditation is sinful. Check this out: [6 Reasons to Reject Eastern Meditation and Yoga](https://rosilindjukic.com/eastern-meditation-differs-biblical-meditation/)


Boy_Meats_Grill

Isn't it kind of weird how religious extremists from all religions tend to agree on everything except who god is and what interactions he's had with the people on earth


OhNoIroh

Here are the reasons so you dont have to give that website clicks: 6 Reasons to Reject Eastern Meditation and Yoga 1. Eastern meditation empties the mind. Biblical meditation fills the mind and spirit with God’s Word. Emptying our mind is actually a very dangerous thing because it gives the enemy room to fill it with his deception. However the Hebrew word for meditation actually means to speak or mutter, a practice that actually does the opposite of Eastern meditation. It fills our mind with God’s Word and builds our spirit. 2. Eastern meditation focuses on self: centering yourself, your inner self, self actualization, your breathing, physical feelings, and emotions. The enemy will do anything to get us to stop focusing on Christ. Furthermore, his ultimate deception is pride or elevation of self. Biblical meditation takes our focus off of ourselves and places our focus on Jesus Christ. 3. Eastern meditation seeks to relieve stress. The problem with our culture isn’t stress. Stress is only a symptom of a deeper problem: pride. Worry, fear, perfectionism…these all have their root in pride and all result in stress. But God wants us to daily walk in faith that brings us peace no matter our circumstance. Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27 Christians absolutely shouldn’t turn to anything other than Jesus Christ for the peace that will help to ease whatever it is that has brought stress on in their lives! 4. Eastern meditation focuses on man being in control. Eastern meditation practices rely on self as the agent to bring peace, tranquility, and oneness with deity – the original lie: “You can become like God”. Biblical meditation reminds us God is Almighty and when He is in control we can be a complete peace knowing that His purposes will prevail. Eastern meditation dethrones God and puts fallen man in His place. 5. Eastern meditation is only escapism. By seeking higher levels of consciousness or altered states of consciousness you can escape your stress and enter new realms of oneness with deity. But the fact remains that once we have returned to our usual state of consciousness whatever it was that brought on the stress is still there. Biblical meditation doesn’t give us an escape from reality, it gives us supernatural strength through the Holy Spirit to walk through the “fire and flood” at peace knowing that God is in control of every situation. We don’t need to escape our troubles, by faith we walk through them , counting it all joy, “knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” 6. Eastern meditation manipulates circumstances to bring peace. By using atmosphere, objects, silence, breathing techniques and more, people are able to enter a meditative state. It’s a manipulation of circumstances and atmosphere. However, the child of God can meditate on God’s Word whenever, wherever, no matter the situation or circumstance because we have direct access to the throne of God. Indeed, we are the temple of God and His Holy Spirit dwells within us. We never need to manipulate any situation to experience peace; we simply recall the precious promises of the Word of God and place our faith and trust in Him!


rakshala

I am a yoga teacher. I have never once, in 17 years of teaching told people they could become like gods. Must be doing it wrong. That sounds amazing though. I'm gonna try in my next class. I'm going to laugh manically and tell my students to become like GODS. Fuck yeah!


opzoro

slight correction - according to the vedas of which yoga is a subset, 'you are god', you realize it through self reflection etc, hence the meditation and clearing of mind and stuff.


NigerianRoy

Its not that you are god its that we are all at one with god or a portion or reflection thereof but also infinite ofc


hunnyflash

In a comparative religion course I once took, we read some essays by Hindu and Buddhist theologians who talked about humans being able to be one with the cosmos and help build the universe, which we technically do even if we aren't enlightened. I can understand why fundamentalists might be threatened.


bigwetpoops

These people have zero clue what meditation even is and they're banning it...just goes to show it's 100% bigotry and nothing to do with conflicting morals or even ideology.

I just checked out that link, and I got suggested another article about evil adult coloring books. That site HAS to be satire


maqikelefant

Having grown up in close proximity to Christian fundamentalist wackjobs, I can assure you they really truly believe that bullshit. When I was a kid I had adults tell me that everything from hacky sacks to Power Rangers were satanic.


Beaverchief62

As a kid our pastor gave a sermon about how evil Pokemon is and literally explained to a room full of adults and children that the characters on the cards are servants of Satan and at night will wake up, pop out of the cards, go to your parents room, and use their collective bodies to crawl down your parents throat and suffocate them in their sleep. I wasn't that into Pokemon but was still pretty sad when my mom made my dad start the barbecue and threw the few cards I had into it. Also wasn't allowed to watch Scoobies Doo because, you know, there's demons in it. Even though 7 year old me would justify by saying "mom it's never a real demon it's always a person in a mask!"


Broken_Noah

It sounds like your pastor has a weird closeted furry + erotic asphyxiation fetish


Erestyn

> Power Rangers were satanic. Of course they are, have you *heard* [that intro](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwbHW8MeHDU)? Anyway, I'll be over here with my air guitar.


seoulgleaux

I looked up the author (Rosalind Jukic) and discovered that unfortunately it's 100% real. This is legitimately what that person and others like her believe. Christian fundamentalists are a scary bunch.

As a muslim i agree


Fresh_Proposal2938

What crazier is that they probably don’t realize that not everyone is Muslim, the probably do but still act like this. You can’t stop people from doing something just because your religion says otherwise


Skyfire66

To religious extremists though, everyone not being a religious member is part of the problem. They wouldn't stop if someone said "oh we aren't actually members so we don't have to practice it", they'd just have an additional reason to disrupt the event


TheSeansei

This isn’t the best example because practically everyone *is* Muslim in the Maldives as it’s a state-mandated religion and citizen is not granted to non-Muslims.


indtaly

That doesn’t mean that everyone is actually Muslim. You are not allowed convert out of Islam, but I am pretty sure there are non practicing Muslims who are stuck with the label. There is also still a very small Minority of Hindus… who probably are going to be diluted pretty soon. It’s less than 100ppl.

My extremely Christian mom also thinks Yoga is evil. Because opening your mind, “let’s in the Devil and demons”. Not sure how many other religions also are anti yoga.


Drainbownick

The practice of yoga is inherently anti Christian as the main goal is not to recognize your connection to God, but to literally recognize that you ARE undivided from God, and separation is illusion. This is counter to the teachings of Abrahamanic religions which tend to focus on the individuals relationship to god through their actions.


baxx10

Lmao. It's not even about 'opening your mind'. Much more about connecting your mind to your body and breath. Guess that's somehow dangerous?

IDXK073

Lol why would yoga be haram? When we pray we do a sort of yoga, it is proven to be good for your heart and your back. Edit: A lot of people are saying yoga is considered haram because it looks like the way hindoes pray. But what if you do yoga that looks like how muslims are praying, would it still be considered haram? What about just stretching like before you go on a run or something, to what extent would that be haram?


AgVargr

Yoga poses looks like Hindu meditation poses. Hindu is false religion (haram). Therefore yoga = haram.


SomeRandomguy_28

With that logic , everything is haram even existing, hindus exists = haram oh shit we doing haram rn we must bomb ourselves


AgVargr

They tried to ban hotdogs where I live because it contains the word dog, and dogs are haram. You get used to the stupidity. Edit: I’ve also found out they’ve ~~tried to get~~ successfully got pretzel dogs renamed for the same reason, and these are not the rabble doing this, it’s the religious authorities


Good_Ol_Weeb

The entire species? So what do islamic extremists want to kill all dogs?


AgVargr

It really is just the saliva that is haram, generally they just consider the whole animal as haram, like pigs


IRefuseToGiveAName

~~iirc dogs themselves aren't considered haram, they're just considered dirty and can cannot be kept as pets.~~ This is incorrect, they cannot be inside. They can be pets.


Loudquietcuriosity

Would calling them wieners calm everyone down?


Strong_Magician_3320

That's the ideology of the extremists. I am a Muslim myself, and my mother who is an extremist forbids yoga in her house. Why? Because Hindu. Similar thing that also happened with my mother: She murders me every day just because my nickname is “William”. Why? Because Christianity. I honestly wish these extremists could understand that what we do has nothing to do with other religions.


leo_sk5

Yoga is hindu concept and creation. It won't sit well with extremist Islam


immortal_duckbeak

AdventurousCut5401

Precisely. Before yoga became popular in U.S. (with massive financial gain), the christian right used to consider it a sin/idol worshiping. You can probably still find such extremists. Reminds me of the anti-Harry Potter movements too. The acuteness is so obtuse.

matticusiv

Doesn't really work when their religion compels/demands them to make it everyone else's problem.


Typicalinternetuser9

it's almost like religion is just a social control tool that's super-effective on the poorly educated and emotionally damaged


BigMcThickHuge

Since I was a kid learning about religion in a neutral manner and up to this day - I've always held the opinion religion is just a tool of societal control, 'created' at a time when people were on average incredibly stupid and uneducated and would soak up whatever you told them if it explained things. Why's the fireball in the sky move? Gods carry it around the world, keep them happy. Why did a disaster strike our people? Gods were angered, appease them. Why are we rounding up non-believers and 'dealing' with them? The Gods demand it. Why are we marching to attack these other people? They believe in the wrong Gods. We need to correct this because they are wrong and it makes the Gods mad if we don't. Anything beneficial that came from religion even up to now was primarily just the good people amongst the greedy actually spreading 'the good word' and acting on the good parts of their religion like they should.


Certain_Chain

My take has been, if you think those other guys are being sinful and going to Hell, why do you care? Just let them go to Hell. I'm not directing this at you; I'm directing it at the extremists.
