Food alternatives to the Holy Wafer

chocolate_jesus“It is terrible that Jesus is being wrapped up in gold foil and sold along with chocolate bunnies, edible penguins and lollipops,” said Aegidius Engel, a spokesman for the archbishopric of nearby Paderborn. German churches find ‘chocolate Jesus’ tasteless

Hey! What is it with Jesus and chocolate? Just last year a Chocolate Jesus got kicked out of an art museum in Manhattan. My Sweet Lord soon did return though to life!

These chocolates seem less tasteless to me than the Holy Wafers traditionally served at Church. Maybe a Jesus pizza might be a good business venture since we certainly need more food alternatives to the Holy Wafer! Or for Americans, perhaps a Jesusburger with cheese?

What’s really tasteless about the German chocolate Jesus is that it is made of White chocolate. Yuck! And then there was the Jesus pancake cooked up in Ohio 2 years ago. Couple Claims Jesus Appeared On Pancake And now we enter the Christmas Season!

  1. What about the orgy of shopping madness each pre-Christmas? I notice that none of the churches ever call this tasteless and sinful… lol… Go figure?

  2. I grew up a Byzantine Catholic, as opposed to Roman Catholic. We didn’t use wafers, but instead the Communion consisted of actual bread and wine, served up by the priest. When I was at Cornell, the priests there had a special hippie Mass on Saturday night at midnight, where we sat on the heated stone floor of a small chapel, and passed around loaves of bread and chalices of wine. Quite compelling, but still not enough to keep me from atheism once I found Ayn Rand.

    I wouldn’t mind getting a chocolate Jesus for Christmas, be He white, milk, or special dark chocolate. Just so long as He doesn’t look like Obama.

  3. Michael, if I can find you a White chocolate Barack Obama, I’m sending you one for Christmas. Or a regular chocolate Ayn Rand!
