The Catholic Vegan Dilemma: Can I Eat Communion Wafers?

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.

Piraro says it “it might be problematic to publish it in the papers” as his regular strip, so it’ll have to remain online.

Can we call that a Cat(e)ch(ism)-22?
