Salt For Christians!

I can’t be the only the only one who reads this and hears “No more dirty Jew salt for us righteous Christian folk!” in their head, can I?

Retired barber Joe Godlewski says he was inspired by television chefs who repeatedly recommended kosher salt in recipes.

“I said, ‘What the heck’s the matter with Christian salt?'” Godlewski said, sipping a beer in the living room of his home in unincorporated Cresaptown, a western Maryland mountain community.

By next week, his trademarked Blessed Christians Salt will be available at http://www.memphi.net, the Web site of Memphis, Tenn.-based seasonings manufacturer Ingredients Corporation of America.

(…)

Godlewski said his salt, packaged in containers bearing bright red crosses, has at least as much flavor and beneficial minerals as kosher salt – and it’s for a good cause.

“The fact is, it helps Christians and Christian charities,” he said. “This is about keeping Christianity in front of the public so that it doesn’t die. I want to keep Christianity on the table, in the household, however I can do it.”

(…)

If the salt takes off, Godlewski plans an entire line of Christian-branded foods, including rye bread, bagels and pickles.

Fan-tastic.  This reminds me of the “W Ketchup” that became popular during the 2004 campaign, only instead of keeping the money away from “Terayzuh” Heinz, they’re keeping it away from the Jews.

I wonder if I can get some white pepper to go with my Christian salt.

    I dunno, Eli. I think he might have decided that times are tough and it’s time to exploit P.T. Barnum’s favorite demographic. Let’s face it, some people will buy anything if you stick the right name on it.

    From my perspective, “Christian” food isn’t a whole lot wackier than kosher.

    Religion. Just say no.

    Wouldn’t Christian salt, be, oh I don’t know. “Regular” salt? Or does he take kosher salt, subject it to an inquisition, and then forcibly convert it?
