I hadn’t been to church in a while

hadn’t realised just how PC

the whole palaver had become

until I went up to take communion

from the lesbian lady vicar

 - all tattoos & piercings -

& handing out the nibbles & drinks

she mumbles

 

  The gluten-free body of Christ:

  The pesticide-free blood of Christ:

 

  The gluten-free body of Christ:

  The pesticide-free blood of Christ:

 

Christ, I thought,

it’s only a matter of time

before the refreshments

come in little cartons & sachets

like Travelodge milk & sugar

& you’ll have to help yourself

 - and break your fingernails

in the process, no doubt.

Hmph! - and I've been avoiding anglicans all these years cos I thought they were stuffed full o' gluten - just goes to show eh ? BTW - "dipping your bread in the wine" - that's not a euphamism is it ? eh? eh? (you saucy mare) [always the quiet ones isn't it ?]

Yep - I think you have the option of dipping the bread in the wine now - unlike the good old days where they just wiped the cup and you imbibed everyone else's germs. Not that I've taken communion in years though - my kids are catholic and they'll only give anglicans a blessing - not much gluten in one of those.

Ta!
I reckon that JC would say "why didn't y'awl take a blind bit of notice of what I just said ??"
same with Buddha (Sid) - told everyone - "look, when I'm dead, don't go covering the shop in bloody statues of me, just listen!!"... so - what do they do??

Yes, tis a strange world out there. What, I may ask, would JC Himself make of it all? I like this.
