That's great! Smile

From the linked site:
Quote:Kaltenbach is the lead pastor at Discovery Church, a non-denominational Christian congregation located in southern California. He told Starnes, "People are pretty shocked and upset. We are supposed to be living in an era of tolerance, but what Costco did doesn’t seem too tolerant.”
I bet this pastor thinks filling peoples' heads with lies is "tolerant" though. Dodgy Especially if it brings in lots of cash.

Almost.... They still need a Excl WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT Excl sticker.

Just imagine the outrage if kids under 18 weren't allowed to buy a Bible w/o a parent or guardian. Smile

RE: Costco puts the Bible in the fiction section!
"Costco has issued an apology to Fox News, stating, 'Costco's distributor mislabeled a small percentage of the Bibles, however we take responsibility and should have caught the mistake. We are correcting this with them for future distribution. In addition, we are immediately relabeling all mislabeled Bibles. We greatly apologize for this error.'"

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

RE: Costco puts the Bible in the fiction section!
From the OP:
Quote:Starnes raised the issue to pastor and author Robert Jeffress, who said, "Let’s hope Costco’s explanation is true and not the result of having been caught attempting to marginalize the very foundation of Christian beliefs, the Bible. Christians need to call out organizations like Costco whose actions undermine Christianity – regardless of whether those actions are accidental or intentional.”
Because this is part of a larger war against Christianity. The forces of evil are clearly behind this label.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

So, in other words, they're about to make another error.

Damn shame! Haha, but honestly that's the only logical solution from the business perspective. Gotta make them dollars, and it's pretty hard to do that by angering your biggest consumer demographic.

How should stores categorize the Bible?

Fiction 47.92%
Nonfiction 19.35%
Other 32.72
What would other be tho?

"Supernatural/Religious" section.
Which should go next to the "Unproven medicine and health" section
