This just in: Video of Stephen Harper eating the wafer (skip to the 5:30 mark in the video):
Response as a normal politician:
I believe that in these circumstances the choices were ambiguous and challenging. Despite the inherent difficulties, the leadership displayed integrity and respect to all. In these trying times, all must come together, be decisive and persevere.
Response as the politician I am:
Stupid frigger should not have gone up to take “The Body of Jesus.” My first thought was, “You can’t have any puddin’ if ya don’t eat your meat!”
Response as the devout Catholic that I am or was, or am recovering from:
Ya should have choked on it and faked a seizure. See if God helps ya then. Oh yeah, he woulda known yous was fakin’. Clever deity.
So there you have it, the final word on the Wafergate affair.
