Another subgroup insists that giant chocolate statues are perfectly fine, as long as they're not shaped as a cow.

Surprisingly, this subgroup is actually more popular among scientists. This could be because of the giant chocolate duck-billed platypi they serve at their ceremonial dinners.

Actually, giant chocolate statues are perfectly fine, regardless of their shape. Compared to other statues they have several benefits to the faithful and the faith: we can eat them, and thereby not only (symbolically) partake in a bit of Kromm, but also have huge amounts of chocolate, which is an obvious blessing and sign of His concern for our wellbeing. We also have repeated opportunities to build bigger and better statues without having problems with how to dispose appropriately of one of His statues or cluttering the landscape with them. Those statues are not build for eternity, or even the long term, which enhances the difference between Him and His images, and reduces the risk of His images being worshipped instead of Him.

Considering His Mastery of Rules, couldn´t he simply rule that this specific part of skin would only have DR0 for the necessary time ? Or give an armor divisor of Infinite to the scalpel ?

His Mastery Of Rules makes His DR switchable. If He wants to walk between mere humans, infinite DR would be inappropriate.

So... if we speak the correct words over a chocolate bar - does it actually become the flesh of KROMM? And why would we want that anyway?

We're trying to cut down on chocolate?

Surely KROMM's flesh is infinitely healthy and contains all the necessary nutrients for our continued happiness and content without any extra fat, sugars or other BadWrongFun unhealthy substances.

DR: Infinite (Cosmic: Infinite +∞%) [∞], you mean?

Indeed, it is so.

Absolutely not. Chocolate being one of His blessings, we want more of it, to show our devotion and our gratitude for Him having created chocolate.

I would think of it as merely holding that chocolate becomes a representation of The Holy Flesh. That way we not only fail to eat HIS flesh, even while representing our worship of him, but also get something that actually is meant to be eaten.

And we wouldn't want to eat the flesh of KROMM in and of itself. That's why we eat the chocolate instead; and this way, KROMM can share with us if he wants.

I only mentioned it as a possibility.

Besides, if chocolate is a blessing, how much more of a blessing is not His flesh?
