He Didn’t Even Say What the Wine Is Supposed To Be…

    “She” has a beard.

    I realize this is a bit of a nit-picky comment… but I’m pretty sure the person Jesus is offering the bread to is a guy (hence the beard) rather than a “her”.

    Recommended with a side of fava beans and paired with a good chianti…  ;^)

    When I was a little Baptist boy, the wine was Welch’s finest grape juice, and the unleavened bread was Mrs. Baird’s brand sliced white bread that had been squished flat and
    cut into pieces to “unleaven” it.  Was eating this ersatz Jesus as worthy as having burgundy and matzo?  I lost interest in the question long ago.

    Leavening is yeast, not altitude.  Dude, you’re  guilty of breaking some obscure taboo.

    “Weird” is an understatement.

    What was with the Welch’s grape juice??  Why did it always have to be Welch’s??  Whenever I drink it as an atheist adult I still feel like I’m doing something wrong!  As a kid I always felt so guilty taking “communion” since I never felt “right” with god.

    Yeah, that’s my… Oh, nevermind.

    Haha I’m a Pastor and I remember seeing this and thinking “spot on.” Doesn’t mean I don’t believe—but it is super strange to say the least. I actually stumbled upon the site while looking for the cartoon in question. Will be included in a sermon, without the fucking. I think our little old ladies would be pretty shocked when ‘fucking’ comes out of my mouth from the pulpit. Will check out your book—could be an interesting read.

    Sidenote: I would rather not debate religion on public message boards—ignorance, vitriol, and astounding levels of blunt misunderstanding seem to know no bounds when some see the world through the glowing rectangle—from both sides of the great debate.
