Vatican Exorcist and Mark Driscoll Agree: Yoga Is Satanic

It's easy to pile on Seattle megachurch pastor Mark Driscoll and his crazypants ramblings about how practicing yoga is a one-way ticket to hell. But Driscoll isn't alone. In fact, the Pope's former personal demon banisher agrees: Yoga = Satan.

The UK's Telegraph reports that Father Gabriele Amorth--a man who for years was the Vatican's chief exorcist, and claims to have saved the possessed souls of 70,000 Christians--says that yoga is Satanic. And as a bonus, he even compares it to the Harry Potter series, which is apparently equally evil.

"Practicing yoga is Satanic, it leads to evil just like reading Harry Potter," he told a film festival in Umbria this week, where he was invited to introduce The Rite, a film about exorcism starring Sir Anthony Hopkins as a Jesuit priest.

Compare that with Driscoll's quote from early this month:

"Should Christians stay away from yoga because of its demonic roots? Totally. Yoga is demonic. If you just sign up for a little yoga class, you're signing up for a little demon class."
