The Catholic Church gone wild
A college student attending a Catholic University in FL took a wafer out of the church without swallowing it.
If this is what the Archdiocese terms “a hate crime” then they as an organization are even more profoundly hypercritical than I initially thought. Pedophile Priests, controlling people through the threat of eternal damnation, Nuns swatting young children with rulers, well these seem more like “acts of hate” that should not be tolerated in my limited opinion on the subject.
The following is what ensued.
"Webster gave the wafer back, but the Catholic League, a national watchdog organization for Catholic rights claims that is not enough. “We don’t know 100% what Mr. Cooks motivation was,” said Susan Fani a spokesperson with the local Catholic diocese. “However, if anything were to qualify as a hate crime, to us this seems like this might be it.”
We just expect the University to take this seriously,” she added “To send a message to not just Mr. Cook but the whole community that this kind of really complete sacrilege will not be tolerated"
