It is redundant to drink communion wine. It is only symbolic act, which is done by priests during ceremony. Christians get communion such symbol of bread. What a Christian confession is there? Why do they drink wine?It is not necessery.

I feel for you. If Body and Blood of Christ is "just a symbol", then why bother? Runs much deeper bro, much deeper.

This seems to be such a bizarre form of "justice". Why can there not be tolerance of people whose religious beliefs and practices happen to be different????
