    Default Cafflick Science: Gluten Needed For Transubstantiation

    Coeliac-hating Linky

    Bread used to celebrate the Eucharist during Roman Catholic Mass must not be gluten-free - although it may be made from genetically modified organisms, the Vatican has ruled.

    In a letter to bishops, Cardinal Robert Sarah said the bread can be low-gluten.
    But he said there must be enough protein in the wheat to make it without additives.

    The new rules are needed because the bread is now sold in supermarkets and on the internet, the cardinal said.

    Roman Catholics believe bread and wine served at the Eucharist are converted into the body and blood of Christ through a process known as transubstantiation.
    In related news, TEVW definitely ain't convertin' now.

    Beat me bugger. I saw this and thought wtf? Look it's transubstantiation, it's fucking magic, surely it doesn't matter what the original is made from, they could make it from cow dung and the magic will turn it into the flesh of christ because. it's. fucking. magic.!

    How more ridiculous can they get?

    Surely they could use foreskins, Steve. Not a lot of presto-change-o needed there, and the chewy texture would be a selling point!

    The Vatican is essentially correct. Gluten is necessary for the Transubstantiation Process. As everybody knows, souls are composed of anti-matter particles stabilised by a divine W-particle. Not only does gluten interfere with the W-particle stabilisation field, it also makes neutrinos go queer. This could lead to a non-reversible rip in space-time, causing the universe to collapse into itself.

    Things are unstable enough as it is, with evil forces bent on the destruction of Cardinal Pell. It is almost certain that some Catholics have practised mass with gluten free bread already, so it is not even certain that the sweet baby Jesus, even acting in concert with Dr. Who, can reverse the degenerative process already begun.
    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

    I think the point being missed here is that when something goes a bit off track, a tad lax perhaps or not quite right, the RCC really are all over it in a flash and they just straight up fix the problem. Amazing organisation, ya gotta say!

    Yeah nah, what was it Winston Churchill said about democracy? Obviously deluded ideologue. Authoritarian and centralised always was the way to go.
