Stephen Harper pockets communion wafer: “Worse than kidnapping”?

Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, showed his ignorance of church etiquette by attending mass, putting his hand out for a wafer, then slipping it into his pocket and leaving the church with it. This is behavior that has been condemned by Catholics as being “Worse than kidnapping,” since they believe that the  magic cracker is now literally Jesus–at least that’s what they fulminated last year when a student taking a wafer back to his pew to show it to his seatmate was assaulted by other churchgoers in an attempt to make him drop the cracker.
