    Unless they are using a highly flexible definition of "history," then their use of that word is about as wrong as it gets.

    meh, i think their just crazy fanatics who know how to protect their interests. The ideas about them being a lawsuit industry seem just a convenient means for dismissing them

    It's not even about if you believe or not. At minimum simply recognize that people who believed in the Bible are the ones who started, built, and nurtured this country(I mean this in general terms) and Western Christiandom as a whole. At least recognize it's importance in history and the advancements in civilization that occurred under it's protection.
    Instead somebody says said they wouldn't use it as toilet paper. Do you think that makes you look smart? It just tells me you don't know anything about history or probably much of anything else.

    They're nuts, like most fundamentalists, but they aren't stupid nuts, they know how to make money, which is a good thing because I don't know if any of them are actually employed outside of the Westboro Baptist Church. Since they comprise almost the entirety of the Church, it's not like they're drawing in a lot of donations on Sundays.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I think it is kind of funny, actually. Sounds like a practical joke I would have pulled.

    What if there isn't a religious section. Costco isn't a bookstore.

    It would be technically correct to label the Koran fiction, yes. I assume they wouldn't do it because they don't want their stores bombed.

    Oh, and speaking of WBC, they're picketing over Paul Walker's and Nelson Mandela's deaths, but that shouldn't be surprising by now.
    I haven't seen Christians beat them in a debate either.

    If you read the article you would see they in fact do have a religious section. And under your premise, since they aren't a bookstore, they would feel the need to label fiction and non-fiction and that would be it? If they aren't a bookstore, why not just label them books and be done with it?

    Everything you are doing is trying to cause an issue instead of letting people live their lives. If they believe in a book how does that negatively or positively effect you? It doesn't. You are just trying to put your labels on them. Let people live their lives free from your judgment.

    Briliant marketing plan. Costco saved a lot of money for all this attention.
