Dan Piraro, the artist behind the comic strip Bizarro recently drew something for a friend of his celebrating her 33rd anniversary. She and her husband were raised Catholic, but they were joking about the communion wafer — the literal body of Christ — and whether vegans could eat it.
So he drew this:
Piraro says it “it might be problematic to publish it in the papers” as his regular strip, so it’ll have to remain online.
It turns out there are vegan-friendly wafers. But if you truly believe Catholic doctrine, then taking Communion would technically mean you’re eating an animal product and the actual ingredients wouldn’t matter.
Can we call that a Cat(e)ch(ism)-22?
