Talk about a goyishe kop!

I saw this on Feministe:

CRESAPTOWN, Md. (AP) – You’ve heard of kosher salt? Now there’s a Christian variety.

Retired barber Joe Godlewski says that when television chefs recommended kosher salt in recipes, he wondered, “What the heck’s the matter with Christian salt?”

By next week, his trademarked Blessed Christians Salt will be available from seasonings manufacturer Ingredients Corporation of America. It’s sea salt that’s been blessed by an Episcopal priest.

The company’s president hopes to market the salt through Christian bookstores.

Go here to read the rest.

    Because, you know, what makes kosher salt kosher is that it was blessed by a rabbi. Or whatever rabbis do.

    I like heard that somewhere.

    Absolutely, Julie. The only thing that kills vampires quicker than Holy Water is Kosher Salt.

    Why can’t the stores just sell Judeo-Christian salt? Then everyone will be happy.

    That’s very funny. But I bet he makes a mint.

    All this mockery. It’s like hating on Christians is the last acceptable prejudice in America.

  9. It just occurred to me to wonder what the blessing is.

    Also, Amp, just think of what would happen if you rubbed Judeo-Christian salt into wounds? (I have no idea where I was going with that question; I just sort of liked it.)

    I thought this comment on the original news story was hilarious, if lacking in grammar and spelling:

    Happy to hear this . I hope it far succeeds regular store bought . May it be a miracle salt . So that All out heavy snow & sleet won’t freeze over so bad . Or
    even hit our hard payments at all .

    Ahh, but WHICH Episcopal priest is doing the blessing? Somehow, I don’t see a box of salt with Gene Robinson’s picture on the label becoming a best-seller at your average Christian bookstore.

    Petty much? Against fracken kosher salt?

    well, if people are dumb enough to pay for it, more power to them.

    Maybe not, but if you produce it, I’d totally buy it.

    Lilian (#6), it is very funny, but I think this one is just making christian salt. I’m sure someone will be along soon to make religious distinctions for packages of mint.

    This is brilliant! Now when fundies complain that “Merry Christmas” has been replaced with “Season’s Greetings,” we can say, “But the seasoning in question is Christian salt, so it’s ok!”
