Yoga, IHOP, Dog Fights and Punk Rock

Just because the war on Christmas is over "at least for now" doesn't mean there aren't other battles going on in Christendom. People are debating about everything from yoga to trademarks to dog fighting and beyond. Here are a few quirky stories I read in my quest to deliver you the news that matters most.

Should Christians practice yoga? The Wall Street Journal is stirring up quite a debate with its article by the same title. 

What's in an acronym? Plenty, apparently. But the Los Angeles Times reports that the International House of Pancakes dropped its trademark suit against the International House of Prayer. Did prayer help?

Despite the separation of church and state mandates, some charter schools are finding a home on church grounds, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. Is it a constitutional misstep?

Is Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick unforgivable for his dog fighting days? Clergy members discuss it in this Palm Beach Post story.

Finally, Denver Westword News reports on how Christianity is getting the punk-rock treatment at a Denver church.

What are the most interesting, wacky or offbeat Christian news stories you've read lately? Please share!
