Why are you concerned Bob ?

For the last goodness knows exactly how many years, we have all Received the Body and Blood of Our Lord God and Saviour this way.

Have you ever heard of any huge outbreaks of disease as a result of Receiving in this way ?

Have you seen any Priest or Deacon fall ill after Divine Liturgy after they have consumed what is left in the Chalice ?

How about those Churches where the faithful receive a small amount of wine after Communion - have you seen those people dropping with the onset of infections ? And those cups are not washed after each person has used them.

Every dollar bill in circulation today has traces of cocaine on it, which is due as much to the velocity of money as it is to the ubiquity of Bolivian Marching Powder.

I have heard that it is due to things like automatic money counting machines that are used at banks. One tainted bill going through it can then taint countless others.
