dog biscuits vs church wafers

The following is in response to “Canadian priest sorry for giving dog Holy Communion” (

some random German shepherd mix, not the perpetrator in this storyMany Anglicans in Toronto are making such a fuss over a Canadian priest who gave a communion wafer to a dog (not the one pictured here, on the left). There have been complaints filed at the Anglican Diocese of Toronto, people leaving the church and other nonsense. The priest even had to apologize for her sin (feeding the dog).

What’s the big deal? It’s only a wafer, a snack, the same product ice cream cones are made of.

As much as the wafer REPRESENTS the body of Christ during the sacrament communion (the Lord’s Supper), it’s NOT Christ. OUR FAITH makes it the “body” of Christ, which enters our bodies to live within. This means the wafer was merely a snack for the dog. The “body” of Christ didn’t go in its belly. Then again I don’t think Christ would be upset to give a dog a snack or to play with this “heretic” dog.

Some people get religion the wrong way. They don’t seem to be able to separate things (like a shoe) from faith (God).
