and goes against the whole idea of the First Communion
I'd rather party than think about the cannibalistic things that it actually (disgustingly) stands for..........also the Christian robbed this tradition from an earlier Egyptian religion anyway, so it's completely null and void for me.
I've been asked to one this year here in Poland, but there's no way in Hell I'm stepping inside a church. Polish church services last for ages, why so long??? When I was a kid, (parents used to make me go), if mass lasted longer than 25minutes the priest would get a complaint............ I'll give the kid a card with cash for sure. There's no way he'd be happy if he got a bible. He's communion age, kids in Poland can't even read properly at that age :P
Plus he can buy a gift he wants with the money...if that's a silver cross then OK, his money, but I reckon it'll be an xbox game or a football jersey. Both far more useful than a bible, unless you run out of paper to light a fire. (^_^)
Anyone with common sense certainly would follow the teachings of the Church
Sheeple follow those teaching.
