>Last night, the local CBS affiliate did a news story on Holy Drinking Water. It’s bottled water with a blessing. So next time you are feeling your faith slip, just head on over to Rinaldi’s Market in Linden and buy a bottle of belief.
I do enjoy the warning on the bottle: 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.
What in the hell are oral irritations? Canker sores are now a sign of sin? I thought they were just an allergic reaction to pineapple.
>The truth is out, sinner.
>okay, so this blows my mind. the religious are not immune to any kind of marketing. and they buy riiiight into it.
obviously, i will not be drinking this. i would like to avoid vomiting, sweating, and oral irritations. i can get those just by savouring some delicious, tainted seafood.
>wow. you know, i thought the message of christianity was redemtion through the immersion of faith. hell, catholicism teaches that we’re all sinners, and that it’s only through the infusion of faith that we are saved.
so basically, they’re marketing a drink that, by their own admission, is undrinkable?
and some say religion=truth…
>balloon pirate hits the nail on the head. word.
Happy new year.
>Did I mention that they want to make sure you don’t substitute drinking the water for attending church?
And I’m pretty sure just about everyone commits a sin on a daily basis: pride, greed, lust, gluttony, envy, wrath, sloth. So, you’re right no one will be able to drink that water.
