Stephen Harper to Catholics: WTF Is This Cracker?

The Telegraph Journal's apology to Harper this morning made me decide to dig around a bit into the wafer-gate scandal. After all, nobody actually saw Harper put the communion wafer in his pocket, but what is wrong with this statement from the original story?

A senior New Brunswick Roman Catholic priest is demanding the Prime Minister's Office explain what happened to the sacramental communion wafer Stephen Harper was given at Roméo LeBlanc's funeral mass

I still don't know, but I did find this rather humorous bit of mini-news from the Catholic Blog In the Light of the Law:

Update: Sources say Harper consumed the Host, some claiming right away, others, just after Mass when he asked a Catholic what to do with it.

No word as to the Catholic's response.

This just in:

"The Irving Family would like to apologise for the misleading statement in the Telegraph Journal's apology to Stephen Harper:

We pride ourselves in maintaining high standards of journalism and ethical reporting, and regret this was not followed in this case."
