  1. Great issues raised; a delightful dilemma for the vegan crowd.

    Note that transubstantiation, at least according to the RCC, doesn’t actually occur in your gut but when the priest consecrates the host; this is why old school Catholics receive the wafer directly from the hands of the priest, with the altar rats, er, servers catching crumbs on the communion paten. Further, transubstantiation transforms the wafer into the Presence of Christ, so it’s not just cannibalism… it’s necromantic soul-devouring, one mouthful at a time.

    Mmm, soul-devouring. Man, if they’d phrased it like that, I might have stayed an altar rat.
