RealJesus(tm) Communion

"... this is my body ..."

Using one of the "Clone Jesus" projects as a starting point, we vat-grow real saviour flesh and blood for serving at communion instead of those doughy wafers and treacly wine.

The taste of salvation.

There's loads of them... [my face your, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       Well, I think that if you're Catholic you're more or less expected to believe in transubstantiation anyway, so for some there'd be no advantage. Also, I would hate to be forced to choose just one 'Clone Jesus' project over the others. Finally, I don't know if any believers would want salvation to become just one more thing that tastes like chicken.

       I think such a venture would imply that the church doubted that it was the body they've been eating all along... that could ruffle a few feathers.

       When Jesus said "Take and eat; this is my body." (Matthew 26:26), he was handing out bread, not chunks of flesh.

       I always thought that the jesus wafers at church were bland to the point of making Jesus look bad. I'm not sure canabalism is the way to go. Maybe just jesus flavored wafers, if anything.

       Reminds me of the 'Jeez-It's' thread awhile back.

       yes, but that was just about taste and I am not sure whether this is good taste or not.

       Apart from the obviously-gross aspect, and the fact that this idea misses the point of Communion/The Lord's Supper altogether, the one major thing wrong with this idea is that one would need a viable genetic sample in order to be able to clone a person. By all accounts, Christ left no body behind for a clone to be derived from.
