Cannibals!

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples.  ‘Take it and eat,’ he said, ‘this is my body.’  Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying, "Drink from this all of you, for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. [Matt 26: 26-28]

1972 : my first taste of human flesh

That’s me in front, on my first holy communion day, looking like major jailbait material even at the age of 8. At the back, from left to right, are my brother John, my mother Rita and my brother David. Standing in front with me are my sister Margaret and my brother Andrew.

‘Holy communion’ is a bizarre pagan ritual still practiced by some obscure sects such as the Catholic and Anglican churches. During this ritual, practitioners actually eat and drink human flesh and blood in the belief that it will give them ‘eternal life’. In order to avoid prosecution, modern versions of this twisted ritual replace the flesh and blood with bread and wine. In the Roman Catholic Church, children as young as 7 or 8 are encouraged to participate in this protocannibalistic rite.

The picture was taken in the Bega Town Hall, and you can clearly see that, even at that early age, I had great legs.

P.S. David, your fly’s undone.
