PZ Meyers and the wacky wafer kerfuffle…
[Note this post started as a comment on Seed's SciBlogs here ]
So to anyone curious or artistically inclined, there is a ready supply of holy hosts – without the hassle of a congregation of hysterics chasing you out the door. It turns how you can get 250 authentic Eucharist wafers for $5.47(US) online. For $39.95(US) you can get a 210 set of pre-filled cups with a Eucharist chaser… the only crime here is one against ‘creation’ —how very, very wasteful.
Perhaps the easy access to the commoditized cannibal snack should be a more serious concern for the seriously concerned. Anyone and I mean ANYONE can buy 500 of them for a mere 85.00(US) and go to town
on a binge and purge session and no one would be the wiser. Therefore, I suggest a RFID tracking system for all containers of wafers traded globally, so the impending scourge of cracker kidnapping and desecration can be avoided.
Idolatry for those interested in religious breech would be the thing that any concerned priest should be chastising his flock for…but consistency has never been the forte of the Vatican or other manufacturers of new and disparate dogma, transubstantiation in fact, is a fairly new twist on the theme, disputed since a few decades after that very bad day at Golgotha.
Those concerned about ‘respect for Christ’…need to go check out this TERRIBLE animated avatar explaining the benefit of the easy open Eucharist kit…
