    What are the crackers and wine like? Worth all the religious crap or not?

    the wine is bought in bulk and normally kept in the priests front room pre match.

    Body of christ, blood of Christ. Doesn’t sound to appetizing tbh

    Brought up a catholic in Christian Brother schools, I have NOTHING to do with religion since leaving school.

    Religion caused and still causes more death than anything I can think of, surpassed only by the mosquitto perhaps?

    Sorry, the wine is kept by the “man in a frock “and the rice paper tastes like paper.

    It’s certainly not worth sitting there listening to the “man in a frock “drone on and on about the “bloke in the sky”

    Me neither, went to the front once ‘out of duty’, my 5 year old had to remind me to not to put out my hands out for the biscuit but rather cross my arms.

    Same son, now 8, has decided that the compromise is to believe in my story of evolution and science and mums story of the ‘bloke in the sky’ are of equal merit – will update you in a couple of years – if he’s not turned vegan that is

    Wife tells me the wine is just cheapo cooking wine, not great by any stretch

    The host is unleavened bread. (Wheat flour and water) Too much of it and you’ll have the equivalent of a stomach full of wallpaper paste.
    Besides, unless you are there for the proper reasons, why bother?
    Indeed why bother at all with your mockery?
    It’s in bad taste.

    Was an altar boy ages ages ago, white circle bread is tasteless , and cheap grape wine eww! ..we are naughty little bastards back then but never ever fancy once drinking it and not because of the bloke in the sky, a 2 litre a pound cider in Aldi definitely taste better.

    Thanks for the opinions, as a result I will skip church and go for a ride this fine Sunday morning. Damnation may or may not await 🙂

    Organised religion based on imaginary superhero’s (walking on water, making bushes spontaneously combust etc) is not exempt from piss taking, you might believe its in bad taste but not everyone is that gullible..

    Oh goody! We haven’t had one of these for at least a week, where metaphors can be dismissed en masse by science 🙄

    Have fun people, I’m off to ride my bike 8)

    The Mrs is just off the church now, I’m missing it …. shame l quite fancied it this morn

    But then it’s more fortified wine watered down at my local… and if the pie n liquor is not too heavy handed with the water you get a nice little shot of Port… great on a winter’s morn or if you are hanging from the night before.

    Given the addictive nature of Pringles, I’m surprised they’re not all over this.
    Communion Pringles – now in Pope flavour!

    I think you’ve hit on the answer to falling congregations there.

    I’ve never been to church, but as a good Catholic when I do attend that will be the first thing I confess.

    Religious folk are all a bit whiney and crackers surely?.

    What is your point?

    Is it to mock those who choose to go Church? or are you genuinely interested in what it tastes of?

    It’s in bad taste.

    That’ll keep the wine company then

    Frankers, you need ask? Just another example of why religion bating is acceptable.

    OP, no is the answer for you.

    Genuine question does everyone drink from the same cup? 🙂

    It’s not that enjoyable in itself, but it does offer the opportunity to be instantly forgiven for all your (many) sins by sitting in a cupboard and telling a bloke in a dress, sat in an adjacent cupboard, about them, through a letterbox. There are a few Hail Mary’s involved, but it’s still a pretty good deal.

    Also, life takes on a nicer aspect when you know you’re one of gods chosen ones, and therefore innately superior to other mere mortals. Ask Tony. He’s never looked back!

    Ask Tony. He’s never looked back!

    He certainly doesn’t seem to feel any guilt for the death of 500k Iraqis…

    Exactly! You can do that kind of shit if you’re a left footer. You just say sorry ( in a cupboard, to a bloke in a dress) and the slates wiped clean! No wonder he fancied it! I can’t see why anyone wouldn’t

    and therefore innately superior to other mere mortals

    Surely that’s the point of STW’s regular threads on religion, ie, to engage in a bit of self-congratulatory flattery and restate how intellectually superior everyone who rejects religion is ?

    Why else would there need to be constant reminders of how silly people who have religious views are ?

    Yeah, well they can indulge themselves all they like in this life, come the day of reckoning, it’s pointy pitchforks up the jacksey, and flaming damnation for the rest of eternity.

    I’m hedging my bets

    Unless it’s a quality red, and the crackers have a really sharp cheddar with them, I’m out.
