Does Transubstantiation Work?

Apparently not

Tip number 7 (at the link above) for gluten free communion wafers:

7. Once more: contamination is the number one concern. For me, ingesting a product with gluten in it is the same a ingesting something with poison in it. Many others suffer similarly.

So, there it is. It’s bread before it gets to the church. It’s bread when they hand it to you. It’s still bread when you eat it. Not even the glory of god almighty can neutralize the dangers of gluten.


  1. According to the Roman Catholic Church, sacraments are “efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us. The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament. They bear fruit in those who receive them with the required dispositions.”

    “with the required dispositions” gives up the scam.

    The disposition required is complete and utter gullibility. This form of artificial skeptic-proofing is a hallmark of religion and pseudo-science worldwide.

    • Very well said. Thanks for commenting.

    I was raised Catholic, the way they explained it to me was that while the underlying substance of the wafer thing remains the same, the underlying substance is what changes. So god is in the wafer only nothing actually changes. They say this seriously as well.

    • You’d think the almighty would have the grace to take the glutens out? I mean there are all those supposed wafer miracles turning into flesh etc.

      • Too funny! You get the Snort of the Day Award for that reply. (SotDA is given to the first comment or post I read in the morning that makes me snort or splutter although hopefully over the keyboard). I just love the concept of being able to magically turn wafers into flesh but not bother to get rid of the gluten for people who have gluten intolerance. Or maybe it didn’t exist when God was born?
