In Colorado, someone is very bothered by the idea of kosher salt:
You’ve heard of kosher salt? Now there’s a Christian variety.
Retired barber Joe Godlewski says he was inspired by television chefs who repeatedly recommended kosher salt in recipes.

By next week, his trademarked Blessed Christians Salt will be available at http://www.memphi.net, the Web site of Memphis, Tenn.-based seasonings manufacturer Ingredients Corporation of America.
It’s sea salt that’s been blessed by an Episcopal priest, ICA President Damon S. Arney said Wednesday. He said the company also hopes to market the salt through Christian bookstores and as a fundraising tool for religious groups.
Kosher salt isn’t special–it’s NaCl just like your table salt. No rabbi ‘blesses’ it, or any other nonsense. It has large crystals which make it useful for soaking up blood: kosher meat is salted to prevent the consumption of blood.
Besides, shouldn’t it be Judeo-Christian salt?
