From what I can tell. A megachurch tend to have both a coffee and gift shop. With a rather large auditorium with the latest sound system. Went to one a few years ago. I swear it felt like you had to drop a $100 in the collection plate. 

Church/religion is a business, one that returns some huge profits.  Those profits not spent on community service and activities that benefit other people (not just church members), should be subject to taxation just like any other profit-making business.

Churches make use of streets, fire and police protection, water, electricity and other services frequently provided to them at no charge.  It is not right for them to freeload off the rest of society.

Meh...most people just do yoga for health and it's got nothing to do with any belief system.

I went to a mega church once.  It didn’t take me long to realize I was in the wrong place.  So, I got up and left.  The pastor gave me a funny look that I prolly gave right back on the way out.

Next week I tried Unity and that was a trip.  I did make it through the whole service there.  FWIW.

But yeah, shame on warning people about yoga.  You may as well preach against eating properly while you’re at it.

So stretching is a bad thing now?

Yoga is much more than streching. It's a spiritual practice imported from the East with a rigorous philosophy behind it.

Actually no it is not!

Traditional Hatha Yoga is just physical techniques, all other Yoga stems from this, but hey it's useful for self reflection and meditation.
