Why would I want to do that?It is not pretend. Those Catholics who believe the Eucharist sincerely believe they are eating Jesus' flesh and drinking his blood.

When I go to church with my mom on Christmas, I take the communion because I don't want it to be awkward. But that threat of judgment is in my head while I'm eating the delicious Hawaiian bread my mother's Methodist church uses for Communion.

The reasons for it are tied up in our view of man as both a physical and spiritual being. And, in the concepts of the fall and redemption.
I'll discuss it with you, but not if Gary is part of the discussion.
