Bishops Ordain Reiki UnChristian

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops has declared the Japanese healing practice of Reiki UnChristian, saying it lacks scientific credibility and is at-odds with Christian values and beliefs. The panel admitted a correlation between Reiki and the Christian belief in the laying of hands, but noted Reiki was a technique, not a prayer, and that lay-healing is believed to be a Divine power granted by God and Christian faith. The panel concluded that Reiki is "superstition."

Reiki was developed in the 1800s and is a process by which believers are said to be able to manipulate life energies through sheer will. The practice is used to heal.
