So I’ve got some unleavened bread here. To some people, it’s just a piece of flour, mixed with water and heated. And to some people, it’s the body of a god, sacred beyond imagining.
Plain unraised bread, made without yeast or other raising agent, is ‘unleavened’.
A few years ago, a Florida student called Webster Cook put a piece of unleavened bread in his pocket. Churchgoers confronted Webster to get the bread back. Later, he got death threats. Local priest Miguel Gonzalez called for prayer instead.
Gonzalez also compared the stunt to a kidnapping.
Humanist PZ Myers was so outraged, he blogged asking his readers to send him crackers, which he would treat “with profound disrespect and heinous cracker abuse, all photographed and presented here on the web.”
Enter justice minister Dermot Ahern, who last summer added blasphemy to the Defamation Act, So I suggested a bit of cracker desecration in response.
There it is. A piece of bread.
I‘m asking for your suggestions below.
