OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) – Oklahoma’s Catholic Archbishop filed a lawsuit on Wednesday to halt the use of what he said were stolen communion wafers destined for a satanic black mass ceremony to be held next month in Oklahoma City.

The lawsuit filed in Oklahoma County District Court claims the black mass is a deliberate attack on the Catholic Mass as well as the foundational beliefs of all Christians.

“I have taken a legal step to combat this blasphemous and obscene inversion of the Catholic Mass,” Archbishop Paul Coakley said in the lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, the Holy Eucharist can only be distributed by an ordained minister of the Catholic Church and must be consumed immediately and never taken outside of the church.

The Angra Mainyu satanic group named in the suit as a defendant planned a countersuit claiming defamation and will go on with its black mass at the Oklahoma City Civic Center, according to Adam Daniels, the group’s leader.

“I will allow the lawyers to pull that onion apart,” he said, adding the communion wafers being used in the black mass were not stolen.

The Black Mass of Oklahoma has been held for several years and has faced resistance from state, and local leaders as well as setting off anger in a state where many identify themselves as deeply religious Christians.

Officials for the Oklahoma Civic Center said that since the center is a city-owned facility, the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution does not allow for them to turn away productions based on their content.

A Black Mass involves a sacrifice to the devil, a practice known as inversion of the Christian ritual. According to the Angra Mainyu website, it is a modern form of ritual to celebrate the perversion of the Catholic Mass.

 Does he know for sure that a "black mass" group stole his precious wafers that must not be taken out of the church?

Oh boy....

If they were stolen, then he has a right to sue for the theft. That's it.

But, as much as I don't agree with the Satanic Church, protecting their freedom of religion also protects my own. Can't pick and choose what religions you want to protect.

This will be interesting to watch.  After all, the little thing I read about this black mass a while back said they specifically use stolen communion wafers.  So, they are either stolen, or they lie.  Either way, not people I want to be around.  They are disgusting people.

If they stole the wafers then the case has merit. If they didn't steal anything... let em be.

Quoting SuckIt69:

If they were stolen, then he has a right to sue for the theft.

If a priest gives you a communion wafer, in the expectation that you'll eat it on the spot, but you have not signed a legal contract to that effect, and in fact you palm the wafer and put it in your pocket...

is that legally theft or not?

No. Because once someone gives you something they cant legally dictate what they do with said gift. It doesn't matter what their expectations are. They relinquish ownership once they gift it.

If the wafers are stolen then he needs to file a report and have them arrested. otherwise, save it for butt-hurt Monday.

I guess they are going to have to use forensic evidence on the crackers to find the fingerprints of the satanists, and then they are going to have to prove that they were stolen, or as someone said, "gifted". Lol. But really it's just an attempt to stop the satanists from celebrating one of their religious rituals
