Wafer abuse

A student in Orlando removed a communion wafer from church without consuming it to show his friend who wanted to learn about the Catholic faith.

Manhandling the guy over this incident isn't right, I will agree to that.

However, dude, what were you thinking? If you wanted to do show & tell, why didn't you arrange something with the priest? It's no big secret, and I am sure the priest would have been more than willing to show a wafer and explain about it to the other student without you making yourself stand out like a giant neon sign. You know the rules: you're supposed to consume it, not put it in your mouth and take it out again to show it off. That's disrespectful.
