More cracker news
Remember my earlier post about the Great Wafer Caper of 2008? According to the latest post at Pharyngula, one of the raving morons who emailed a threat to Professor Myers (demonstrating his superior Christian love, of course) used his wife's work email account and got her fired.
I was listening to the Non-Prophets podcast yesterday as they discussed the bizarre story of PZ Myers and the sacred wafer, and I learned something I did not know: Priests have recently begun placing the communion wafer in the recipient's hand instead of directly into the mouth because of health concerns.
Am I to understand that Jesus's body bits are sacred but not guaranteed sanitary? How magical can this cracker possibly be if it can't even eliminate 99.9% of household germs?
