According to those in attendance at the historical church at 188 Carlton St. in downtown Toronto, it was a spontaneous gesture, one intended to make both the dog and its owner – a first timer at the church — feel welcomed. But at least one parishioner saw the act as an affront to the rules and regulations of the Anglican Church. He filed a complaint with the reverend and with the Anglican Diocese of Toronto about the incident – and has since left the church.
Wunnah cud believe dat doah? De priest-ess gi de dog communion in de people church! Imagine that!
And fa all the non-church people dat gine say wha dis a trivial issue compared to priests sexual assaulting an de pope an rah rah rah. Is a different issue an wunnah cud put um in whatever perspective wunna want but um is an issue anyways an um is the one I decide to tackle. So like um or lump um. Dun. And yes I in an antagonistic mood so doan mess wid me this blessed day.
Man wunnah animal people gone too far now. Too too far this time, a line has been crossed. But imagine that though. The holy sacrament given to a dog by a priest? Wha dem wafers is doggie treats now? chupse!
To me this makes a incredible mockery of the whole communion act. How you going to give a animal communion? Wha this flies against anything that ya read in the bible or that Jesus ever teach. Absolute ridiculousness. And wid de sorta animal people we got these days ya know ya duz only gotta gi dem a inch an dem duz tek a mile. Wha next ting dem wud be telling ya that little Ruff Ruff wanta be ordained an he halfway to priesthood cause he already used to wearing a round collar.
Looka muh crosses though.
But step back though, just step back a minute. Y'all dat know anything bout church (de resta wunnah heathens keep quiet) notice anything else wrong here? Maybe its just me but I figure if a fella just step into you church for the first time as was suggested by the article then he shouldn't be in line to tek no communion.
Yes I know the priest dont ask for no id or baptismal papers when he handing out communion (and maybe he should hmmm) and is between you and ya maker to know if you eligible or not but still. The whole point of communion is that its a commemoration of a covenant between you and the lord so you gotta be straight or ya should be straight wid ya life and ya commitment to the savior. I lie?
And priests and Christians gotta realize a lot lotta a people nowadays doan know nuttin bout church and communion an duz juss be following fashion. Dem see everybody else get up and get a sip a wine an a pieca wafer an figure dem gine join de buffet line too cause duh mout dry.
Naa man I feel that priests and priestesses need to state plainly look if ya not right wid ya maker doan be coming up here to get nuh free wine. This aint dat sorta gathering atall atall. See it an doan see it an doan let um tempt ya eidda. Leff it off one time! Well not in dem words exactly but something elegant and more friendly and wid some tact an dem sorta skills dat I apparently lack but wid de said same exact point.
Cause the thing is they devaluing the act of communion and the people that know better ie the christians and the christian leaders letting um slide an saying a fella aint kno nuh better. Well who fault um is that he aint kno nuh better is wunnah wun cause wunnah need to explain to the fella wha he doing before he do um.
Let he know membership has its privileges, free wine, free wafer, free afterlife etc etc but doan let he get up an guh having the communion an aint paying he dues so to speak.
