Yes celiac3270 you have the right to post that. Not everybody agrees on these debates and I for one do agree with you celiac3270. I am not a Catholic but if I was I would not take communion either because I will not take gluten in any amount. Kvogt-celiac3270 was not attacking anyone or trying to be disrespectful in any way...he was voicing his opinion on what he thinks just like you did.
Also, I had assumed that this forum was to have constructive conversation, debates, opinions, etc. I wasn't aware that gave us the right to "attack" someone like I believed you attacked celiac3270. Again, to me that was just another example of the Catholic church's "It's our way or the highway!" celiac3270, as far as I am concerned, you have EVERY RIGHT to post you opinions without fear of reprisal.

My grandmother had a massive heart attack three days before the SARS outbreak. She was taken to Grace Hospital (the location that the outbreak started). We were told that she had 24 to 48 hours to live and that most people in their 70's don't survive that massive of a heart attack (Nanny was 92 at the time). Well, we were with her night and day because we didn't want her to die alone. Miraculously, she survived, and is still going strong today (she is now 93), it must be the Irish in her!!!! We were informed while in the hospital that we must go home immediately and stay under quarantine for 20 days as we were in the next room to the people who brought SARS here when we were down in emergency. I had to stay in a room away from my children and family for 20 days, terrified that I was going to die because of this insidious disease. Miracles do occur, and not one member of my immediate family or other members at the hospital for those days, ever came down with SARS. We counted our blessings.
But to this day, it is ALWAYS in the back of my mind about germs, washing my hands disinfecting things, etc. etc. The thought of drinking out of the same cup as 20 other people at church, even though it is wiped with a "hanky" after each one, just sends shivers down my spine. I'm sorry, but to me a "hanky" is not going to wipe away any diseases of the rim of that cup. And one thing I have learned living through SARS, IT CAN HAPPEN! This pandemic that they keep talking about, CAN HAPPEN. This worldwide epidemic of SARS started in North America RIGHT IN MY BACKYARD, I WAS RIGHT THERE FIRST HAND! So, yeah, I am now overly cautious.......

I can see where the priests are coming from, but they are forgetting the basic principles of their faith.

Started low-carb diet early 2004, felt better but not totally gluten-free. Went 100% gluten-free early 2005 and life has never been better.
