Sorry, but this is rather funny. Thankfully, he returned the biscuit due to death threats (which is not so funny)...

Webster Cook says he smuggled a Eucharist, a small bread wafer that to Catholics symbolic of the Body of Christ after a priest blesses it, out of mass, didn’t eat it as he was supposed to do, but instead walked with it.

Catholics worldwide became furious.

Webster’s friend, who didn’t want to show his face, said he took the Eucharist, to show him what it meant to Catholics.

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.”


Heh, a 'hate crime'?

Comparable to a Black or Gay dude being beaten senseless? Taking a magic biscuit?

Apparently the kidnapping of the biscuit needs some swift justice...

“For a student to disrupt Mass by taking the Body of Christ hostage—regardless of the alleged nature of his grievance—is beyond hate speech. That is why the UCF administration needs to act swiftly and decisively in seeing that justice is done. All options should be on the table, including expulsion.”

Crackers for Jesus?

I'd say they're crackers from their reaction, aren't they supposed to be forgiving & understanding, doesn't seem that way. I'm sure if they had their way they would have been out with pitchforks & torches ready to burn him at a stake for herecy
