Holy Drinking Water

Think the KFC Blessed Fish was weird, check out Holy Drinking Water!

If it had been a joke it would be humorous, but it's not, therefore, to me, this is appaling.


First they make the roundabout claim that this water is blessed by the Pope.
Holy Drinking Water™ is blessed into holy water by hands of god. By hands of god, we mean priest, churchman, clergyman, cleric, curate, divine, ecclesiastic, elder, father, friar, holy man, lama, monk, padre, pontiff, preacher, rabbi, rector, sky pilot, or vicar.

They fail to release the names of the clergy who bless the water.

Then they make this claim:
This warning was designed to protect the product during consumption due to the many known perceptions about Holy Water. It is also designed to market the product towards the younger generation. We mean no disrespect towards any religion in regards to this disclaimer.

"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."

Not only is it a misrepresentation of the purpose of Holy Water, it is a misrepresentation of a sinner as an evil person. We are all sinners. Every single one of us.
