Jesus Meats

From an post about calculating Jesus' body weight, based on the Catholic doctrine of transubstantiation:

jwz: Oh, I thought the transubstantiation happened once you swallowed. I didn't realize that they believed there to be a stack of live Jesus Meats sitting out there in the open, unrefrigerated.

enochsmiles: Actually, transubstantiation is believed to occur at a specific point in the mass, when the priest consecrates the communion host [ . . . ] At least as of a decade ago, the altar boys helpfully ring little bells at the very moment of the transubstantiation, so you know that your Jesus Meat is done.

The post itself is a good example of why math is the oil to religeon's water . . .
