Literalists need rituals to help them over an issue unsolved.

Cannibal comes from Canaan where it was the norm.

Many old rituals have been replaced for reasons.

Bread and wine in place of the blood/soma solution and a body are just one step up from cannibalism and is a literalist practice that needs to be abolished. If/when the iDEAs behind the eucharist is understood, the ritual should be dropped. Like training wheels on a bike.

it is a symbol of the sacrifice for those not yet able to understand and needs to go. not everyone needs such hamfisted symbolic ritual.

Don't attempt to put me into an 'atheist, edge-lord' or some convenient box it won't work.

There are REASONS the profane aren't allowed into the inner Sanctum.

Christ instituted the Eucharist at the last supper

If you believe it’s cannibalism, you are aligned with the people who martyred the early catholics (sunce the word “christian” was not invented until later...by catholics (“katholikos” meaning universal))

Acts 11:26 - Christian was not invented by catholics.

Christian - Christianos (Gk. 5546) - Follower of Christ: - Christian.

The apostles were catholic homie

it is literally how their successors described them and themselves.

Read some church fathers.
