I'm pretty sure that any liquid has at least the potential to become holy water if it's blessed by a priest.
 
2013-02-19 08:28:22 PM
If said man thinks he is a priest of his own religion then fine, it IS holy water.

But yes, if it is unwanted, then it is assault. Holy or not.

I'm sorry but I just can't let this go. There are a lot of things in this world I can overlook or just chalk up to the peculiarities of modern society but this isn't one of them. No one should ever, for any reason, waste Tabasco. I know this sounds drastic but anyone caught wasting Tabasco should be looking at some serious prison time

Piece of trivia: Tabasco pepper crops were left alone when Sherman and his men marched through the south.  Even union soldiers on a war path wouldn't waste tabasco.  If I recall correctly it was the only crop left alone and that is when the Tabasco sauce got its start.  According to the History channel and Larry the Cable Guy.

Hmmmm, interesting one a couple of points. One being that of course they left those pepper crops alone and the other that The History Channel was showing something other than Pawn Stars or Storage Wars or whatever junk they play most of the time nowadays

CSB: I used to work with the groundskeeper at a catholic church for almost 10 years (high school/college job) and one of the many duties was to fill up the fonts at the doors of the church every friday in preparation for weekend masses (very large parish, many masses, lots of people). So we'd clean the fonts and fill them with some pitchers of water. The water was "holy water" which was just tap water that had been blessed. That lemon scent? Yeah, we drained and cleaned the fonts with Fantastik every week.

Always made me gag a little to see some kid stick their hands in the fonts to do the sign of the cross when they enter and just lick the holy water off their fingers afterward.

Last time I went to a wedding at a Catholic church, I got into a holy water fight with my brother-in-law, flipping it at each other.

Tabasco is crap hot sauce.

Back when I was a kid, before our family left the church, I remember hearing something about water from the River Jordan? They had a little vial, and added a few drops, I think. That still in vogue, or just something our church/diocese did?

Not at all.  Tabasco is great on SOME things.  It's just not the right hot sauce for every food you might want to add hot sauce to.  Different hot sauces for different foods, because different hot sauces have different flavors.

That said, Melinda's is a great general-purpose hot sauce, because it uses a carrot base rather than vinegar.  But Tabasco still has its place.

By "papers" you mean Baptismal Certificate, right? If they don't have one and they're not intolerant/judgmental/rude toward religious folk, they're agnostic, or at least well mannered, so they're in.

ciberido: Different hot sauces for different foods, because different hot sauces have different flavors.


So much this^^^

Having been born and raised in SoCal, I have a special fondness for Tapatio. I use it more than any other hot sauce, but I do have a lot of different hot sauces because I also like blending sauces to create the perfect flavor profile for whatever I'm making. For my "Buffalo" chicken sauce/glaze (depends on what I'm making) I mix equal parts Tapatio and Crystal Extra Hot Sauce with just a touch of Tabasco and a bit of Megadeath. Heat it up, melt some butter (not margarine!) in it and OM NOM NOM NOM.

/I also put cayenne powder and chipotle powder in whatever I'm using to dredge the chicken, if I'm going to dredge it

Well, yeah, that *is* holy water. Just blessed water.  Never heard anyone claim anything differently.  As for the kids, eh, they're kids.  They probably licked stuff around the house that Mom or Dad just cleaned with product too.

Always made me gag a little to see some kid stick their hands in the fonts to do the sign of the cross when they enter and just lick the holy water off their fingers afterward.

I'm not a huge fan of the Tobasco flavor either. As far as hot sauces that you can find just about anywhere, Cholula is my pick.

I've probably got a few gallons from various sources, all in bottles on my "Wall of Idolatry". It was a result of me travelling a lot for work. Go to NYC, go to a Catholic Church, get a bottle of holy water. Go to St. Mary Minerva in Rome, get a bottle of holy water... the same went with icons, mini tapestries, and other "Catholicish" things that I pick up.

It's great at warding away Jehovah's Witnesses.

CSB:

My mum did her nurses' training in the '30s and one of the things they learned to do was make Holy Water if a situation arose that called for it:  a delivery that was clearly going bad, or a patient who took a sudden turn for the worse. for instance.  There were only two parts to the ritual, one, to bless the water and, two, that it was poured out on the ground when they were finished with it, not poured down the drain.

Absolutely. I like El Yucateco on chicken, and Louisiana Gator Sauce on fish. I don't really like the Gator sauce on anything else, it has kind of a weird flavor, but just goes great on fish.

Pocket Ninja: I'm pretty sure that any liquid has at least the potential to become holy water if it's blessed by a priest.


Any liquid can probably be blessed to be holy, but doesn't magically transsubstantiate into water. Although IIRC, Orthodox priests have a holy oil they bless for Chrismation.
