Crackers For Crackers!

Everyone's favorite Catholic Nutbag Bill Donohue has decided that crackers are sacred, and some more so than others. So much so that someone making fun of them should be fired from his job, sent hate mail, and threatened with death:

"Four of them have included death threats, a personal one day record."

...As PZ Meyers said. (You should read his posts, then perhaps send a note of support to the President of his school, President Robert Bruininks.) And that was just to him, never mind what the student has had to deal with since this hyperbolic stupidity erupted; threats to take the cracker back, mail damning him to Hell, threats of death.

But the real crime was that a student went to mass, accepted the Eucharist, and then didn't swallow. That's right: he walked out of the church with a communion wafer in his mouth and went home.

This was, of course, tantamount to kidnapping. Seriously:

"Imagine if they kidnapped somebody and you make a plea for that individual to please return that loved one to the family."

Gosh, I can't imagine why it is I have a difficult time taking religions seriously.
