Blood of Christ Has Hep A

A throng of people that lined up to drink a liquid they believed to be the blood of Jesus of Nazareth, an itinerant Jewish preacher thought to have lived about 2,000 years ago, may have been exposed to Hepatitis A

From CNN:

“Hundreds of people might have been exposed to hepatitis A while receiving communion on Christmas Day, Long Island officials said Monday.

The Nassau County Department of Health is offering vaccines to those who attended two services at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Massapequa Park in Long Island, New York, according to Nassau County Department of Health spokeswoman Mary Ellen Laurain.

Individuals might be at risk if they received communion during the 10:30 am and noon Masses, according to a statement from the county health department.”

So, do church staff, that are handing out food and drink, have to follow proper food safety and sanitation procedures? Apparently not.

    Surely the local priest’s blessing should have kept the cup from getting contaminated? If not, why not having him/the local bishop/etc work their magic and heal the hep A?

    If they don’t feel they are personally up to snuff, perhaps the Our Lady of Lourdes Church could pay for trips to the actual Lourdes shrine where the Virgin Mary is (supposedly) able to work wondrous healing miracles?

    I expect she’d give this throng priority since it’s an illness they got from worshipping her son…?

    I shouldn’t be surprised but this world keeps on and on. I finally met the web site from SATAN!!!
