21 #MealPrep Ideas That Are Anything but Boring

Blessed Be Thy Water

I love pure drinking water just as much as the next person. However, I think California-based Wayne Enterprises might be taking the whole water trend a step too far with their new Holy Drinking Water. They claim that the water — which is blessed by priests in the company warehouse — makes you good. They also have a disclaimer for sinners:

Warning to sinners: If you are a sinner or evil in nature, this product may cause burning, intense heat, sweating, skin irritations, rashes, itchiness, vomiting, bloodshot and watery eyes, pale skin color, and oral irritations.

If you think that Holy Drinking Water is the only product on the market, then you may be surprised to hear that they actually have some competition. Spiritual Water — is it just me or does their website look thrown together? — is offering well-designed bottles that contain full-colored images of holy persons and symbols, along with prayers in English and Spanish. There are 10 different versions — each with its own message and image — including Balance Water, Focus Water, and my own personal fave: Formula J' Water. Spiritual Water also donates ten cents from every bottle sold to The Spiritual Foundation for children in need.

What do you guys think? Is it really necessary, or is it just some folks who found their niche market?

So if this water makes you good, wouldn't they want the sinners to drink it? Maybe it could solve all the problems of the world. LOL

Jesus on a pogo stick!! Totally irreverent and I love it. But, I think if I drank some - it would burn all the way down.

Is this a joke? It's right up there with Kabbalah water as a huge rip off disguised as religion.

hahaha, I think it is hilarious!!! I - as a very sinful atheist - would LOVE one of those kitschy bottles! "Sinful"... quite amusing, since priests tend to touch little boys.

I'm Catholic and I find it hilarious. I bought a sample pack to give to my mom with her Christmas gifts. She will love it.

I saw this in Newsweek. The article quoted a sister saying that water should not be sold and people shouldn't be making a profit from selling water. Water = Life that's why God gave it to us.

You don't like it, you don't buy it. I get much more offended by people who try to insert religious beliefs into politics.

Money being made off of religion? What else is new?

Are they serious? It's offensive, and I'm not even a religious person.
