This Communion Burger is Both Sacrilegious and Tasty

Kuma's Corner, a burger joint in Chicago, is no stranger to unique sandwich combinations. Most of their burgers are heavy metal-themed, with titles such as Lair of the Minotaur and Plague Bringer. They have now come up with their most bizarre combo yet, which also has drawn the ire of some folks in the religious community.

It's called the Ghost Burger and it's ostensibly a tribute to Swedish metal band Ghost. No big deal, right? Well, it's topped with an unconsecrated communion wafer and a red wine reduction. (It also includes aged white cheddar, a ghost pepper aioli and slowly braised goat shoulder.) The burger certainly sounds delicious, even though it has (understandably) courted some serious skeptics.

The restaurant has posted a message defending the burger on it website, emphasizing their creative vision, and has given a $1,500 donation to the Catholic Charities of the Chicago Archdiocese out of respect to those that were offended.
