Christian Salt Developed in Response to Kosher Salt

Tired of TV chefs recommending kosher salt in recipes, retired barber Joe Godlewski decided to develop a Christian variety of salt. Next week, the Cesaptown, MD, businessman will roll out Blessed Christians Salts, sea salt that's been blessed by an Episcopal priests and packaged in containers bearing bright red crosses.

For Godlewski, the trademarked salts, which are made by Ingredients Corporation of America, are meant to help the Christian faith: "I said, 'What the heck's the matter with Christian salt?' 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."

Godlewski plans to sell the salt in religious bookstores and as a fund-raising tool for religious groups, pointing out that a share of the proceeds will be donated to Christian charities. If the salt proves to be successful, the entrepreneur is planning an entire line of Christian-branded foods, including rye bread, bagels, and pickles.

When I first learned of this, I practically did a double take to make sure I wasn't reading the Onion. It's somewhat entertaining to follow, since I admittedly take the whole issue with a grain of salt. In fact, I'm rather surprised nobody has come up with this already. What do you think about the whole concept of Christian salt?

NYRob, people aren't saying that Christian salt is anti-Semitic, but the inventor's comments/plans are. (planning to expand into traditional Jewish deli foods, such as rye bread, bagels, and pickles.) Kosher salt isn't any kind of religion, it's named for the fact it can be used for koshering food. Perhaps you'd be interested to know that ALL salt is considered halal (food permissible under Islamic law)? Please enjoy your goiter.

Excuse me. I went to the supermarket and noticed that Kosher Salt is kosher and approved for passover. The fee companies pay to display the kashruth hechsher (Kosher symbol) is used to benefit jewish charities and causes. I'm not jewish. Why can't I buy products that benefit Chrisitian causes? This is an excellent idea. If Christian salt is anti-Semitic then Kosher salt is anti-Christian. I would buy this salt immediately. Here is a link to an image of Morton's Kosher Salt. You'll see the kosher symbols on the box.

This is silly, and I am not switching to blessed table salt, table salt is gross!
kosher salt is a term only used by americans AND it's only called this bc it can be used to "kosher" meat by extracting the salt out of it! some people are so crazy!

I didn't notice the "Jewish" foods until Cebca pointed them out, haha! But in total agreement with ysl226. I prefer kosher salt to regular table salt myself because of its taste. It's not as sharp or as salty, so in cooking, you can't overdo it as easily, and it's great for clear soups where you can really taste the sharpness of regular table salt.

Sad how out of touch, uninformed, and anti-semitic this guy is. Even sadder: I'm sure the Christian fundamentalists will gobble this up.
