Burger joint serves ‘religious’ burger with communion wafer, red wine

Kuma’s Corner, a burger restaurant in Chicago, is in the middle of a religious uproar. So what does burgers have anything to do with religion and desecration and burning in eternal damnation? Well, this burger joint, more popular for its heavy metal-themed burgers, just created the Ghost Burger – ten ounces of meat, topped with aged white cheddar cheese, ghost chili aioli, and unconsecrated wafer and red wine reduction.

For many, this is sacrilegious considering the wafers and red win symbolize the body and blood of Christ. But according to Luke Tobias, Kuma’s general manager, since the wafers haven’t been blessed, they are just simple crackers.
