However, I have had several people say that if you are a Christian, you should not learn Aikido.
The people you're talking to are likely grossly misinformed about Aikido.
It is also possible that they are superficial to the extreme.
Once, I entered a (supposedly Christian) church, out of curiosity, and a girl there started a conversation with me.
Aikido was one of the things that came up (she was cute, and I was trying, uh, nevermind).
Anyway, after a while, she looked at me condescendingly, and said something along the lines of "I understand now why people here tell me that outsiders are not of us".
That was just great.
