Tai Chi – Not Christian enough

The BBC reports

A Tai Chi class in Totley has been evicted from its current location of All Saints church hall.

The church wants to focus its attention on a Christian perspective but through doing this has had to tell the exercise group to find a new home for their class.

Reverend David Rhodes from All Saints Church in Totley told BBC Radio Sheffield why he had taken the decision to ban the class:

“We feel very upset about the upset that this has caused. We are not critical of the people at all. We come from a wider perspective within the church and we see Tai Chi as being an aspect of the Chinese Taoism religion. We want to uphold a whole life spirituality that centres on Jesus. And we feel that the two things clash. We are concerned that we stay consistent with that.”

Road, Movie: Don’t Watch

Road, Movie makes it to my personal “best of the worst” list –  bad films I have had the misfortune of watching.

In scale, I was disappointed much more watching Road, Movie than I was watching Dev Benegal’s previous film, Split Wide Open (which btw also figures in my “best of the worst” list). The reason for the bigger disappointment was Abhay Deol – I like the actor and his choice of films, and had assumed since he was in the film, it HAD to be good.

If there is anything positive about this film, it is the Cinematography. But net-net, this is a horrible flick – don’t waste your time and money.
