Death threats. Srsly.
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.Oh, where do I even begin. Let me go ahead and get some feedback on this abject bullshit fucktardery from some others. First, the wonderful and amazing PZ Myers gets the first take in his post IT'S A GODDAMNED CRACKER!. This consequently caused the big vein in that fat fuck Bill Donohue's head to pop, elliciting this response from Jesus' self appointed microcephalic fuck puppet and mouthpiece for the unbelievably hypocritical Catholic League, but not before calling the act of taking a cracker from church an outright terrorist action holding Jesus hostage. No really, follow the link - I couldn't come up with that on my own. PZ has already fired back a response. Jesus General weighs in:
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.”
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.”
Webster just wants all of this to go away. Especially now that he feels his life is in danger.
University officials said, that as for right now, Webster Cook is not in trouble. If anyone or any group wants to file a formal complaint with the University through the student judicial system, they can.
It that happens, Webster will go through a hearing either in front of an administrative panel or a panel of his peers.
In the first day alone, Myers received:Being that I'm exceptionally virulent in my position against the Catholic church, I really wished they'd lay off the crackers and get more serious about all of the kid fucking. 'Cause ya know, that's a metric fuckton more important than crackers ever will be. It won't happen though, because their leaders are fucking stupid and full of shit that way.39 pieces of personal hate mail of varying degrees of literacy...Four of them have included death threats, a personal one day record. Thirty-four of them have demanded that I be fired. Twenty-five of them have told me to desecrate a copy of the Koran, instead, or in some similar way offend Muslims.
dancewithoutme gets the last word in a post I want you all to read as well. I'm thinking chili dogs for dinner here as well!
