I'm not religious either, but what if someone is, and they're highly allergic to gluten? I don't know the ritual, but are they allowed to pass , to not take the gluten laden little biscuit, without being thought less of?

Well, I can see most of you have little understanding about the Eucharist. It's a bit offensive, but hey, it is my understanding that atheists sit alone in assisted living apartments smoking cigarette butts they pull out of ashtrays from the bar across the street. Ignorance is bliss.
according to the latest vatican annoncement the eucharist bread CANNOT be gluten free
just WTF ?
is the property of materials that exhibit both viscous and elastic characteristics when undergoing deformation. Viscous materials, like honey, resist shear flow and strain linearly with time when a stress is applied. Elastic materials strain when stretched and quickly return to their original state once the stress is removed. Viscoelastic materials have elements of both of these properties and, as such, exhibit time-dependent strain. Whereas elasticity is usually the result of bond stretching along crystallographic planes in an ordered solid, viscosity is the result of the diffusion of atoms or molecules inside an amorphous material.
Global demand for wheat is increasing due to the unique viscoelastic and adhesive properties of gluten proteins, which facilitate the production of processed foods
“Hosts that are completely gluten-free are invalid matter for the celebration of the Eucharist. Low-gluten hosts (partially gluten-free) are valid matter, provided they contain a sufficient amount of gluten to obtain the confection of bread without the addition of foreign materials and without the use of procedures that would alter the nature of bread” (A. 1-2).

Best google Transubstantiation, because that is what the Church teaches. And sorry...all of us Canadians are just that clever!
