I am not sure irreverence to the dearly held symbols of others qualifies, at least not according to this definition.
You are not sure?
Irreverence is to ask that the Host be served with cheese whip because you hate the taste of raw meat. "Hatred and intolerance" is:
|So, what to do. I have an idea. Can anyone out there score me some consecrated communion wafers? There's no way I can personally get them — my local churches have stakes prepared for me, I'm sure — but if any of you would be willing to do what it takes to get me some, or even one, and mail it to me, I'll show you sacrilege, gladly, and with much fanfare. I won't 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 goddamned cracker), but will instead treat it with profound disrespect and heinous cracker abuse, all photographed and presented here on the web. I shall do so joyfully and with laughter in my heart.|
The first issue is that someone disrupt a church service- how about hoseing a Baptist service, they like water. And then, provide PZ with material simply to insult people.
Look, If some priest wants to test God's wrath, I'll piss on a stack of hosts. But, I'll not encourage people to trash church services or property.
