In a recent edition of Albermarle, a magazine of Central Virginia, there was a piece by a contributing writer, Rita Mae Brown, entitled “Communion Causes Cancer.” Obtusely written, it failed at humor but succeeded in offending. We are told that communion wafers can cause cancer, learn of a pastor who distributes water crackers (someone stole the communion wafers) and read that a cat is running around with communion wafers in his mouth.

In response, the league told the editors of the publication that Albermarle had now succeeded in stooping to the level of cheap tabloids and Chick Publications. We are happy to report that an apology was quickly forthcoming from Albermarle editor Jamie Miller.
