A Chicago restaurant is raising its profile and its profits by selling a hamburger garnished with a communion wafer and a red wine reduction sauce.
Kuma's Corner admits that there are people who are offended by the stunt, but says the burger is selling well and increasing their revenue.
It's in poor taste, said Jeff Young of New Orleans who runs the blog Catholic Foodie. "It's not, for us, the Eucharist," Young said. "However this wafer is a symbol. There's a cross on it. It's like taking a flag and burning a flag."
One practicing Christian told Illinois Review she doubts the restaurant would "have the courage to do something similar with Islamic symbols such as the star and crescent, or iconography from other faiths."
