Bama poised to possibly move into the 20th Century. Or not.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama lawmakers might lift a decades-old ban on yoga in public schools, but the bill would keep the greeting “namaste” on the forbidden list.

The bill by Rep. Jeremy Gray, a Democratic legislator from Opelika, is on the proposed debate agenda Tuesday in the Alabama House of Representatives.

The bill says that local school systems can decide if they want to teach yoga, poses and stretches. However, the moves and exercises taught to students must have exclusively English names, according to the legislation. It would also prohibit the use of chanting, mantras and teaching the greeting “namaste.”

Also on the banned list is meditation. I don't know why you'd teach meditation in public schools but I also don't know why you'd ban it.

Roy Moore offered his full support as long as it requires teenage girls to wear yoga pants. "Hoo boy!" the former Chief Justice said.
Don't look at me, I just work here.
