Skip to comments.Not well-done: restaurant offers “communion burger”

I have no idea what this tastes like. But I can tell you this much: it’s tasteless. And offensive.
Once again, popular culture deals with Christianity in a way it would never deal with any other major religion.
From CNN’s Beliefs blog:
A Chicago restaurant is pushing the boundaries of poor taste with its October Burger of the Month.
Kuma’s Corner, a heavy-metal themed joint with an “Eat beef; bang your head” ethos, says its new burger is an homage to Ghost, a Swedish band that performs satanic songs in Catholic clerical garb.
“The Ghost” burger features a “Communion wafer garnish,” a white, unleavened disc bearing the imprint of a cross and a crown.
Ghost’s new album comes complete with grape juice and a mock Communion wafer. Not coincidentally, the Communion burger at Kuma’s comes with a red wine reduction…
…Luke Tobias, director of operations for Kuma’s, said the restaurant’s Communion wafers are not consecrated, and thus, not really holy. “It’s more or less a cracker with a cross on it,” he said. The restaurant bought the wafers online from an e-Bay-type website.
They’re not trying to make a big religious statement, Tobias said, just trying to have fun honoring a band they like.
“If there is a God, I’m sure he has a sense of humor.”
Perhaps next month, they will offer a slab of “Koran pork spareribs”.
We used NECCO wafers for communion. Ahhhh Memories.
No need to be offended.
King James Version (KJV)
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
We serve a mighty, mighty God and He has already won!
Is this a violation of the Separation of church and steak.
Like I said in post
Restaurant has a 4 stinkbomb rating
Order the Luketobia Burger but don’t eat it. It comes with a smear of sh!theel on it.
If there is a God, Im sure he has a sense of humor.
This young man will soon learn that God will not be mocked.
Heavily Pierced Kid: Welcome to Cheesus Crust where pizza's a
religious experience. How may I ordain your order?
Tank: How is the Pizza of Nazareth?
Heavily Pierced Kid: People worship it.
Hilary: I am deeply offended.
Tank: I know these prices are outrageous which is why I carry my
Flavor Savior Card; fifteen percent off to those who eat here religiously.
Gimme a cheese burka and a medium hijabajuice.
If it’s not consecrated it’s just a piece of bread.
Don’t they have to be blessed or consecrated or something by a priest before they’re holy or something?
That's just because you're not allowed to chew it.
Look at the bright side - more folks might be reminded of Christ’s telling us to commune with each other and Him, in His memory. Any time someone is reminded of Him, I consider it a “on the good side” event. My God is bigger than those that can be demeaned by ridicule - He has broad shoulders and attempts to destroy Him will backfire as He finds ways to turn all to some sort of Good.
