Protestant Prime Minister Receives Holy Communion

Canada's Prime Minister, who is an evangelical Protestant, received Holy Communion at a funeral Mass last Friday. But according to some reports, he put the Communion Host either in his pocket or in the program rather than consuming it. In the video below, you can clearly see that the Prime Minister does not consume the Host. Since there isn't a priest in Canada who doesn't know Steven Harper isn't Catholic, it begs the question - why was he offered Communion in the first place?

oh my. What a scandal. Why oh why won't the priests follow the rules? Rules are in place to protect us.
