Some idiot professor at the University of Minnesota wants to desecrate the Eucharist. Now this is massively offensive, of course, and as Vox notes, indicative of social autism at the very least. Perhaps even sociopathy.
But what the allegedly intelligent professor fails to grasp, is even if you think it's a cracker, it's somebody else's cracker. The Eucharist is distributed with expectations: you have to be Catholic, in a state of grace, and you are supposed to ingest it right then, at the very least. If you are going to steal and then desecrate it, then you are crossing the line of legality. Surely you would not enjoy us applying the same logic to your possessions.
