That doesn't make sense at all! Whoever gave him hell for _not_ taking wine is a real bastard. On top of not knowing that any communicant can take one the other or both. Now, if your friend went in there and _demanded_ a nonalchoholic Communion; then he was the bastard.

The nonalchololic alternative is the bread/body. It contains the compleat RDA of spiritual nutrients for the communicant that eats it. (As promulgated by the RCC, etc.) Padraic.
