Jesus and the Professor, Part 2

It seems that a young man in London stole a host consecrated at a Roman Catholic High Mass
and placed it in a condom, in protest over the Roman Catholic Church's prohibition on artificial birth control and the alleged problem that teaching has created with AIDs related deaths in Africa.

Now it further seems that the host may have been sent to Dr. Paul Myers, the atheist biology professor whose sacrilegious rant was posted on this website a few weeks ago. According to this story, Dr. Myers pierced the host with a rusty nail, commenting, "I hope that Jesus' tetanus shots are up to date." Dr. Myers then threw the host in the trash.

I've been trying to come up with a comment concerning this story, but its outrageous character, I think, speaks for itself. Pray for these people.

Here's the link to the story from the Catholic Herald:

Proverbs 8:34-36 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

Thanks, Father. Could you elaborate a bit for the folks at home??

What these two people have done is roughly equivalent to the Mass of St. Secaire, the Black Mass.

God cannot be insulted, or hurt, by anyone or anything. Those who do such things, such as desecrate a consecrated host, only hurt themselves.
