Is Salt Better When It’s Christian?

Posted by | March 6, 2009 12:07 | Filed under: Top Stories

Kosher food has its roots in the Bible and in the belief that certain animals are fine for consumption and others aren’t.  Now, a whole new way of making food religiously significant comes via Joe Godlewski (good name for a religious guy).  Godlewski is marketing “Blessed Christian Salt” on the net and in Christian bookstores.  This salt, meant to be a Christian version of kosher salt, is blessed by an Episcopal priest.

On a day of terrible job numbers, it’s refreshing to know that entrepreneurship lives, even if the product is based on a misconception about kosher food.

Rabbi Sholem Fishbane, kosher administrator for the Chicago Rabbinical Council, said he doesn’t blame Godlewski for seizing a business opportunity, even one that plays on public misconceptions about kosher products. (Certified kosher foods aren’t blessed by rabbis.)

If he’s successful with blessed salt, Godlewski plans a whole line of Christian food.  I’m looking forward to interdenominational brisket.
