Amazonian tubers - latest threat to the sanctity of the Eucharist

I monitor the conservative Catholic websites as well. This just in:

Not only did someone ordain this nut job, they made him a monsignor & let him publish. . Msgr. Pope is in a panic that allowing impoverished indigenous peoples to use their native tubers instead of importing expensive exotic foods is going to be the downfall of the Eucharist. Plenty of Indo-Europeans with millennia of wheat in their diets have issues with gluten intolerance. Besides the colonialism aspects, I can image the effect on the gastrointestinal systems of an isolated native population. I guess he believes vomiting & diarrhea are ESSENTIAL to the Eucharistic experience.

In the midst of the effects of the pedophile crisis, he is obsessed with tropical tubers? I told him what I told the dubias, and the poops, what difference does what the Eucharist is made of make when they are all ADAMENT that it is NOTHING more than a symbol of the sanctity of their penises? Francis even paraphrased me. How bout that – I is a Dr. of Theology.

The Msgr. wrote back and called me a ding dong.

I guess that is appropriate for someone who pickets their own local parish.

Sadly, the history of the

Sadly, the history of the catholic church is one of intolerance of other cultures. Missionaries were once a powerful institution because they were the first wave of conquest and genocide. It is not about spreading the word of god, it is about forcing other cultures to change (or be destroyed) and becoming a servant to the conquerors.


How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? ... In modern usage, the term has lost its theological context and is used as a metaphor for wasting time debating topics of no practical value, or questions whose answers hold no intellectual consequence, while more urgent concerns accumulate.

This is not the first time your church is more concerned about theology than the real world.

Weren't the missionaries and help organizations doing the very same thing in lactose intolerant Africa just a couple decades ago? All these little starving children with bloated bellies, vomiting and hemorrhoid inducing diarrhea because we think they should be drinking milk in the name of Jesus Christ!

Humans are stupid animals. Those of us who can admit this to ourselves can genuinely try to make better decisions in our lives and for the lives of those around us. Those who ignore this simple truth, are religious. :-) All you need is a bit of faith and some wheat to find the truth of Jesus. (I think everyone will recognize that as sarcasm, but just in case someone wants to take it literally. It is sarcasm.)

Actually, my understanding is

Actually, my understanding is that the issues in Africa were caused by various formula milk companies trying to turn the continent into a cash cow. Nestlé has much to answer for on this matter.

I am unaware of any link between Christianity & cow's milk. At least one tribe in Africa is famous for being cattlemen. I had thought the lactose digesting gene had also made its way into Africa. Maybe just the one tribe?

Cool - I had not read about

Cool - I had not read about the Nestles Milk scandal. I only mention milk because it was every help organization, missionaries and more on the TV advertisements that were "Saving the Children" etc.... by feeding them milk. I just remember we were poisoning the poor lactose intolerant children by sending them milk. (Face it. Most aid organizations were religious.) This continues today by the way. It makes perfect sense that a huge corporation is behind it all. Thanks for the INFO.

"Baby Clinic milk program provides milk for more than 600 African orphan." Bethel Ministries

"Babies whose mothers have died are provided with substitute baby milk, Children ... Every night in Africa, hundreds of thousands of children sleep on the streets." Compassion Mission Africa

Send a Cow was set up by a group of Christian dairy farmers from the UK in 1988. Outraged at EU milk quotas, which were forcing them to slaughter healthy dairy cows, and in response to an appeal from Uganda for milk, they embarked on a project, which was set to become an innovative and practical charity.


I concede the point.... It's not as much religious as economic. Thanks for the info.

There is a core group who

There is a core group who make protecting the theology of the church their number one priority, believing that change should not happen, and that over time, things will swing back and the old ways established.

But the church has been dragged and screaming into modern times, being forced to understand and accept that their old and archaic methods are not the way to the future, but a means to preserve the dark ages. The church is never interesting in advancing the welfare of the common man, it is about maintaining the status quo.

And the end result is that today church officials no longer enjoy immunity because of their cloth, that they cannot escape raping children or being party to it. And this same church is losing members and actually wondering why.

This begs the question... What do Catholics do for those with Celiac Disease? Or are they just expected to suffer through the symptoms?

I believe Jesus comes in a gluten-free version - but the papacy does not allow it to be consumed.

It is called the wine. It is usually easy to find a church that uses both.

I guess that if Jesus won't allow his body to become a tuber then all hell breaks loose?
