isle of my father-in-law

There is a list of various reasons why I love my father-in-law. He spit out a one-liner the other night that must be added to the list. Word for word, he said...

"I find it hard to believe that the Catholics are the only one with the magic cookie."

The context of that statement made it even more beautiful, but there's no time for that here. So, I'll just give a few more reasons why i like this guy. First, it is his birthday today. Second, he is the biggest hippie i know to ever come out of Bob Jones. Also, i feel like he respects me. I've heard this is a rare find in father-in-laws. Fourth, he and his lovely wife are moving to Florida; now my wife and I have a cheap vacation spot. Lastly, he accidentally cut an 8-inch wide and 4-inch deep hole in his leg with a circular saw and I must show you...

Jim's comment about the 'magic cookie' raises some problems. How could non Catholics have transubstantiation when they specifically deny belief in such a doctrine?
