I *knew* Jews would be the next Christian target.

I guess it would be a Lot of salt, then?

Looking back, I think I'd have gone for this a Lot in the past, although now it seems sodom that I can't imagine I'd Gomorrah.

I prefer Scientologist Salt. Sure, it's $5,400 a shaker and containes no iodine, but I bet this goiter is PURE thetan.

Jesus said his followers were the "salt of the earth." I assume this guy is marketing crystallized, powdered Christians. I have a feeling this stuff is going to taste bitter.

I can't really fault this guy -- at least he's giving people an actual PRODUCT for their cash.

It's much better than Creflo Dollar telling some scared old grandma who's coming up on the Finish Line (and possibly wondering if that train she pulled for the Benny Goodman Orchestra back in '48 is going to make God put her on the 'naughty' list) that only ol' Cref can get her into Heaven...and he can only do it for a monthly donation of $150.

It has 10% less sodium because it tithes.

As far as I'm concerned, sea salt is far superior. I bless my own though, it's a complicated ritual involving simultaneous linear equations, goat blood and liquid paper.

It is for some things. Not for others. But I keep Kosher salt, sea salt, and regular Morton's salt in my house because I like to alternate and leave dinner guests guessing. You never know what you're going to get! Sometimes I even blend the three to create a special mix. Oh, those are the nights.

Advertising slogan brought you to by Mark 9:50 "Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other."

May lose saltiness, use by date on container. Divine exhortations' verity not evaluated by the pagan FDA.

My mom had this pink salt from the Himalayas. Toot a line or two of that and you're really wasted.

Yes, I imagine that inhaling pure salt would definitely cause some pain.

Something bothers me about all of this. Why don't Christians realize that they are Jews? They may be a different type of Jew (one that believes the Messiah has come) but they are Jews none-the-less.

So WHY do SOME Christians always feel the need to hate on Judaism?

While you're working on Christian-Jewish relations, why don't you head over to east asia and work things out too, m'kay?

A Southern Baptist Deacon here who uses Kosher Salt in all his cooking...what's the big deal? A Jew should have no greater friend than a Christian...we are all on the same team, even though they don't recognize our star Forward in their faith...God's says he will give them a chance to know him before the end of the game, so I'm cool with that.
 
2009-03-04 09:57:08 AM  
What a dumbass. Kosher salt IS Christian salt. As much as Christians hate to admit it, Christianity came from Judaism. Does he deny Jesus was a rabbi?

Yes, blessed sodium has that extra holy flavor.

Put "Jesus" on anything and a large segment of the population will rush out and hand you their hard-earned cash.

Which is exactly what Jesus talked about.

Wow, I haven't seen that episode in forever. I never understood why it still had hair after it reverted to its original form.

As has been pointed out in other threads elsewhere on this, any salt is kosher. "Kosher" salt is really Koshering salt.
 
2009-03-04 10:05:23 AM  
This is like renaming French Fries to Freedom Fries. Frenching is a process which produces long thin strips of something. It has nothing to do with the French.

Kosher salt is so named because it is used in the process of Kashering Meat so as to render it Kosher. It isn't blessed or special in any way. It has nothing to do with the Joos.

Greek style is so named because....

not sure, I mean chritianity is a spin off of judaism, even if you'd be a gentile, you'd still be part of the 2.0 of jewishness or whatever

Always bothered me, when i'd read about folks who claimed to be christain, ranting about jewish conspiracies and crap

I had a friend in high school who snorted a line of salt once. He vomited nasty mucus all over the lunch table. On a separate occassion he snorted a line of sawdust and had to go to the hospital because it made his sinuses bleed.

And Muslims are just Christians that think that Messiah was actually just a prophet. Why can't we all just get along?
