Posted on 07/10/2008 7:28:58 AM PDT by Pyro7480
Paul Zachary Myers, a professor at the University of Minnesota Morris, has pledged to desecrate the Eucharist. He is responding to what happened recently at the University of Central Florida when a student walked out of Mass with the Host, holding it hostage for several days. Myers was angry at the Catholic League for criticizing the student. His post can be accessed from his faculty page on the universitys website.
Here is an excerpt of his July 8 post, Its a Frackin Cracker!:
Can anyone out there score me some consecrated communion wafers? Myers continued by saying, if any of you would be willing to do what it takes to get me some, or even one, and mail it to me, Ill show you sacrilege, gladly, and with much fanfare. I wont be tempted to hold it hostage (no, not even if I have a choice between returning the Eucharist and watching Bill Donohue kick the pope in the balls, which would apparently be a more humane act than desecrating a go*****ed cracker), but will instead treat it with profound disrespect and heinous cracker abuse, all photographed and presented here on the web.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue responded as follows:
The Myers blog can be accessed from the universitys website. The university has a policy statement on this issue which says that the Contents of all electronic pages must be consistent with University of Minnesota policies, local, state and federal laws. One of the schools policies, Code of Conduct, says that When dealing with others, faculty et al. must be respectful, fair and civil. Accordingly, we are contacting the President and the Board of Regents to see what they are going to do about this matter. Because the university is a state institution, we are also contacting the Minnesota legislature.
It is hard to think of anything more vile than to intentionally desecrate the Body of Christ. We look to those who have oversight responsibility to act quickly and decisively.
Apparently, there are many who agree, and probably wouldn't object to the professor doing this, even here on a conservative forum.
A hero of the Catholic-hating Caucus has emerged!
Wow, what a tolerant and hip professor. I’m gonna send my kids to that school so they can score an eduction!
He has his own wikibio:
It is highly disrespective of this professor and akin to blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.
What a sad and deranged person.
Well this professor is pretty much shown himself to be an intollerant racist, so when should we expect the board to fire him for violation, I am sure, of the universities policies? /SARCASM
What am I thinking, that would actually be standing up for what is right when it isn’t what is popular for the communist remenants.
Idiot! Is this guy a Catholic? It may be "just a cracker" BEFORE Mass ... but not after.
Hey tough guy, go to a mosque and point your butt the wrong way.
What an idiot.
Its a Frackin Cracker!
Then, Paulie, why are you getting your panties in a twist over a church requiring that this 'cracker' be eaten at the alter?
The way he presented it verbally and in a public state sponsored forum is what he should be in trouble over under the university code of conduct. Taking the action while despicable to most is not any more against the law than flushing a koran.
(oh yeah, that doesn't apply to Christians)
Where did you find THAT?

“What a sad and deranged person.”
And a gutless one, too. Gee, would he desecrate a koran? Of course not, because he’d likely be killed if he did. But Catholics (probably) won’t react with violence, so he is safe to belittle us and our faith.
Then again, someday Someone Else just might have words with him, ones with eternal ramifications.
