Pot, Kettle, Part II

And here’s another wonderful example of cognitive dissonance at work: the news that the Catholic Church in America has banned the use of reiki in Catholic institutions, branding it "unscientific" and "inappropriate".
Update: Over at Supersense, Bruce M. Hood makes reference to a pontifical report into New Age practices and beliefs, and suspects that what it really all boils down to is the fear of losing bums on seats. He’s probably right.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
