Big Box store Costco has issued an apology to all the true believers out there.  Seems as though they're guilty of truth in advertising, since the Bibles they offered for sale were labeled as "fiction."

Story here.  Ohh, and make sure to read the comments. They're a riot!

love it!  no wonder they crush WalMart!

I read this was an accident.  Still, it's fun.

That Costco warehouse in southern California inadvertently committed truth in advertising!

(The uppermost stickers, labeled "Fiction", are for another book.)

And thanks for the link that's not to Fox News. :-)

Funny stuff!

Costco put the "Holy Bible" in the fiction aisle! Holy Batshit! Where else would it belong? In the "absolute truth" aisle. I don't think they have such an aisle.

Strange to me also that many people today yet believe that using a bible to "swear you in" for court testimony is PROOF that the bible is both absulutely true and also an historical document. ROTFLMAO here.

'But I'm forgiven! You died on the cross for the world's sins! I believe in You! Jesus Saves!' 'That's absurd! Why would i need to sacrifice Myself to Myself to allow Me to change a rule... I made Myself!?!'(a key frame from a parody of a fundamentalist "comic book" tract)

This is the most perfect summary of christianity I have ever seen.

Okay, I'm stumped here ... WHY apologize for telling the truth?

Oh ... because the christers can't handle the truth.  Yeah, there's always THAT...

I'm trying to figure out why the dad in this illustration looks like Keifer Southerland.

Might have been more amusing if he looked like Jack Nicholson!

This is especially sweet given that around here Costco seem to be filled with Mormons and other big-family religious. They were probably trying to suck up to that demographic. Otherwise why have bibles in a warehouse/grocery store?

I bet whoever did that gets fired. :(

Moving forward, where can I get a batch of those 'fiction' stickers? Not that I have any plans with them...

I don't know about the "fiction" stickers, but at Amazon.com, you can get these to put on all those Gideons in motel rooms, or at your local Barnes & Noble.
