Is God a spiceist?

God has a thing about salt (Sodium chloride, NaCl). I think he might actually be a spiceist, because he seems much more fascinated with salt than any other condiment, even pepper or Tabasco. For example, he turned Lot's wife into a pillar of salt (Genesis 19:26). He made a number of commandments about the use of salt (see salted&version1=31&searchtype=any). I love that "salting the earth" thing -- putting salt over the land of your enemies. That has to be one of God's most idiosyncratic tactics, and he has many. People should make more of God's salt fetish. It should be mentioned in prayers at school, and in the armed forces. When they open Australia's Parliament with a prayer, as they still do, the Speaker should pray, 'O Lord, we beseech thee, O thou who salteth the lands of those He liketh not ..."
