There’s a Cracker Disposal Expert who wants to help you out with your problem.
Being that Catholics believe the consecrated host is the actual body and blood – transubstantiation – Harper now has Jesus in his pocket.
Better than Jesus having Harper in his pocket.
:lol: You guys are sharp tonight.
What are you doing up so late Zerbie? ;)
If only Jesus did have Harper in his pocket. And all the other evangelicals, too. The world would be a kinder, saner, far less “christian” place!
But I fear it’s the other way around.
Spotted this one yet?
It was a good day for religious nut news, yesterday.
Gigi, I’ve always said that god is man’s greatest excuse.
It really does seem that way, Bruce.
No wonder they cannot fathom that people could behave themselves without the concept of an external overseer/god. They can’t even behave themselves WITH one.
Gigi – Holy crap :shock: Thanks for the link. That’s bizzaro!
Bruce – That’s it in a nutshell, well put.
orange – Jesus would no doubt be nauseated by what some of his followers do in his name. Not all, fortunately, and thankfully not even the majority. But wow — they sure make themselves seem a lot bigger than they are by being the biggest mouthpieces.
JJ – given that Catholics see the Host (and the term Host is not a pun) as both a symbol and (through transubstantiation)the actual body and blood of their God – this is a major insult.
Think of spitting on the flag or tearing up something of your deceased mother’s. If you want to desecrate a Catholic church you can break the windows and tear up the pews and that will not do it. But destroy the tabernacle and it has been desecrated.
Even if you do not believe in Catholic theology, the insult is apparent.
croghan – I’m not sure if you’re referring to the pocketing of the eucharist by Harper (whether that really happened or not) or to the word “cracker” used to describe the eucharist. Either way, I don’t know if your analogy about the flag or my deceased mother really works, since those represent things that are real, the country and a real person. The eucharist represents a superstition, a biblical metaphor, so I don’t see how it carries the same weight.
I guess my bottom line is that non-believers shouldn’t be expected to adjust their behaviour/language in accordance with beliefs they don’t hold.
