    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    yes, as said fiction, religious fiction.

    Funny!
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    Completely unnecessary the tact you are taking.

    People whose entire metaphysical discourse is ignorant trolling, who have not realized that metaphysical expression is human nature. Everyone that has had an extra dollar in their pocket has pondered that which is beyond our control and perception. Oppressing it is authoritarian and low class.

    Religion is fiction, but since some people dont agree with that, and that hurts sales, it has its own section. Fiction is still technically an accurate term.

    Why would you try to define that for someone else?

    Well, let's not scurry around this: "faith and spirituality" is a compromise. An acceptable one, in my opinion, but a compromise nonetheless. "Fiction" is offensive to the faithful, but faithful is the key word here, because you just can't call it non-fiction.

    My point is why should I define what it is to them. Put it under religious, then there is no debate. I can sit here and decide if the religious section is fiction or non-fiction myself.

    Furthermore, if the store owner wants to put it under fiction, then fine. That is his call.

    Yes, and the owner would suffer the consequences of antagonising a large number of potential customers. The Bible is not fiction, it is history. That's what it is intended to be. To say otherwise is to needlessly insult a lot of people, and that would be a sorry, low class thing to do.
