The Roman Catholic Church this week ruled that gluten-free bread can no longer be used in Mass.

In a letter to bishops, Cardinal Robert Sarah stated that gluten-free bread “just isn’t Jesusy enough, you know? The texture is all different – not like flesh at all, in my experience.”

Sarah (who is obviously a man – this is the Roman Catholic Church), went on to add, “I mean, what’s the point of a metaphor if people don’t stick to it rigidly?

“N-not that it’s a metaphor of course, oh no: Jesus was literally – literally, mind you – made of bread and wine.

*Please see the caption in the previous article

It emerged this week that Mel Gibson may have actually made a decision based on fair-minded rationality rather than raving anti-Semitic idiocy.

A film based on the life of Judah Maccabee, revered as a great warrior of Jewish history, was put on hold by Gibson, as he claimed the screenplay by one Joe Eszterhas “lacked a sense of triumph”.

Despite claims to the contrary in an expletive-filled letter from buffoon screenwriter Eszterhas, Gibson claimed that he didn’t want to make the film based on Eszterhas’ script due to it being “substandard”. Ezsterhas in his thoughtful missive asserted that it was due to Gibson’s alleged rabid disdain for the Jewish people.
