Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei Says, "Screw The First Amendment! My Administration Is Going To Use Your Tax Dollars To Teach Your Children Hindu Beliefs"

GREENWICH TIME PHOTO: Toward the end of her yoga class, Miss Brooke goes around to each child, placing her hands on their ears, shoulders and forehead where she positions a "bindi," a small decoration between their brows, that serves as a "third eye," a place they connect to to relax 

YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK: Some Religious Beliefs Have More Rights Than Other Religious Beliefs In Greenwich Connecticut


It would not be appropriate for the Greenwich Department of social services to use taxpayer funds to teach children the healing power of Christian prayer, but it is okay for this lady Yogi to get tax dollars to teach her Eastern religious practices to very young children.

From the Greenwich Time article....

"This is about becoming still," she says, "and knowing that everyone who loves you wants you just like this. When you're worried about something just close your eyes and think on this."

As she goes around to each child, she places her hands on their ears, shoulders and forehead where she positions a "bindi," a small decoration between their brows, that serves as a "third eye," a place they connect to to relax.

She ends the class with, "Miss Brooke will see you soon."

The young students file out saying the traditional yoga goodbye of "Namaste."
"It means a bow to your true self," she tells them as she shows them how to press their hands together, fingers pointed upwards, in front of their chests.

"Namaste," she says.

What's Next? Is The Town Of Greenwich Going To Use Tax Dollars To Teach Krishna Meditation And Reincarnation Briefs To Five Year Old Children In Cos Cob

"Now kids dance like this and sing,'Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare1"

This should be interesting and expensive once the Connecticut ACLU gets wind of this.
