Christians it appears have been fuming every time that they go into a store and see Kosher salt but look endlessly and unsuccessfully for the Christian salt. Enter former barber Joe Godlewski. Godlewski does not just share God’s moniker, he became God’s instrument in creating “Blessed Christian Salt,” sea salt blessed by an Episcopalian priest.
Not since Lot’s wife was turned into a pillar of salt has there been such excitement over spiritually-correct sodium chloride.
Currently, if you want to season with the saints, Blessed Christian Salt is available only by Internet. However, he now plans to introduce a whole range of Christian food products. The salt will be available at http://www.memphi.net, the Web site of Memphis, Tenn.-based seasonings manufacturer Ingredients Corporation of America. They will be targeting Christian stores for customers who want to put Jesus back into seasoning.
ICA President Damon S. Arney said that his company and Godlewski, 73, will share the proceeds and some unspecified percentage of the money will be given to Christian charities. It is not clear what foods will be marketed in the Blessed line but Angel food cake seems a natural.
Of course, kosher foods are not kosher because they are blessed by a Rabbi. But that hardly matters. This culinary crusade seems to be taking off among the under-seasoned faithful. After all, as said in Matthew 5:13 “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”
