Ga BleshU

Do you remember that Seinfeld episode where they talked about why we say “God bless you” when someone sneezes? One of them – I can't remember if it was Elain or Jerry – suggested was that instead we should say, “You're so good looking!”, because that would really make people feel better.

I saw this display at Sprouts in Longmont today:

Ga Ble Shu: You know, for when you're not really into God, but you feel like you should say something when people sneeze.

What do you think? Harmless advertising gimmick or a sign of the spiritual climate?

  1. I guess it would depend on your perspective. Obviously the creators of said product either do not believe in God or they don’t want to offend potential buyers.

    Let me tell you about my sister. My sister grew up as a relatively conservative girl who was also Christian. I am not sure when the shift occurred, but now she refers to herself as an humanist. She is now against anything to do with multiple things considered Christian, including Christmas; even the pagan traditions that started way before Christianity was a thing.

    For someone like my sister, this product is something to be sought after. Even though the creators, more than likely, are just trying not to offend anyone, people like my sister will actively seek out such a product simply because they feel it is sticking it to anyone who believes in God.

    My personal opinion about the product is that it isn’t worth starting a campaign to get people to not buy this product or not shop at Sprouts. I personally think that what the enemy, his demons, and the people he has in slavery do to take jabs at those of us who follow Christ should not make any difference. I love my sister and I do whatever I can to let Christ’s light shine through me for her to see, regardless of what she does to attack me as a result of it.

    1. Chris, that Is a very interesting perspective! In no way am I trying to campaign against this product or Sprouts – I like Sprouts actually! I was there 3 times this week even!
      Keep on shining that light!

  2. i usually say it in Hungarian or French or nothing at all. i think it is silly to bless someone when they sneeze.
