    Catholic Church says girl's communion not valid (she has rare allergy)



    http://abcnews.go.com/wire/US/ap20040819_2427.html

    An 8-year-old girl who suffers from a rare digestive disorder and cannot eat wheat has had her first Holy Communion declared invalid because the wafer contained no wheat, violating Roman Catholic doctrine.
    Now, Haley Waldman's mother is pushing the Diocese of Trenton and the Vatican to make an exception, saying the girl's condition should not exclude her from the sacrament, which commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ before his crucifixion. The mother believes a rice Communion wafer would suffice.

    I think I'd rather go to hell than have to spend eternity with the imbeciles that made that decision.

    Thanks, Ivy! I need all the fans I can get! I have been very busy this summer with the garden and vegetable stand, so I haven't had much time to update the site. But rest assured, The Yakwoman is saving up LOTS of rants!

    Now, now everybody. We all know that you have to follow the right rules to have life work.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.

    God has only ONE RULE. Churches have a 1000.

    God's only rule is to love one another. Period!
