It seems like the Catholic Church just can't catch a break these days. The Vatican's latest PR hurdle stems from fears that roughly 1300 parishioners of a church in Long Island, New York may have been exposed to hepatitis A when they received communion during services on Christmas day.
According to Mary Ellen Laurain, a spokeswoman for the Nassau County Department of Health, "a person involved in the Communion process has tested positive for hepatitis A." She did not specify whether the infected person was a priest, altar boy or Eucharistic minister.
Health officials are asking anyone who attended services at 10:30 a.m. and noon on Christmas day at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Massapequa Park to return to the church Tuesday or Wednesday to receive a vaccination to fight off infection of the disease.
So is their religion, being that it's just plain sick to brainwash children instead of letting them decide for themselves. Yeah, I have a problem with religious people, just like you having a problem with me having a problem with them. Everyone has problems with many things.

You wish a serious disease on these people because of their religious beliefs? That's just plain sick (no pun intended).
