So he did it. PZ Myers desecrated an allegedly blessed communion wafer by driving a rusty nail through it and pegging it to a few pages of the Koran and The God Delusion.
I think it’s the best blog post PZ has ever written. He takes the time to put the historical rantings and lunacy surrounding the Eucharist into context. Given the historical actions of the Catholic Church and its followers, you should feel like a fool if this desecration upsets you.
PZ summarizes the Catholic reaction to threats of a desecration quite poignantly: “In my years of loud and often inflammatory blogging, it is the most impressive demonstration of mass lunacy I have ever seen.”
There’s really not much to add. Just read the post.
