Then they're not Catholics …

 New survey: Only one-third of Catholics believe in Real Presence. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

“About six-in-ten (63 percent) of the most observant Catholics - those who attend Mass at least once a week - accept the Church’s teaching about transubstantiation. Still, even among this most observant group of Catholics, roughly one-third (37 percent) don’t believe that the Communion bread and wine actually become the body and blood of Christ (including 23 percent who don’t know the Church’s teaching and 14 percent who know the Church’s teaching but don’t believe it). And among Catholics who do not attend Mass weekly, large majorities say they believe the bread and wine are symbolic and do not actually become the body and blood of Jesus,” the organization states. 

The literal translation of what Jesus said in Aramaic when he blessed and broke the bread at the last supper  is "This is me."
 Guess Catholic education is worth the money. It was obviously much better back when it cost virtually nothing.
