    I agree. I'm just being an Asshat. Gotta live up to that award I got a couple of years ago.

    Costco isn't a book store.

    About him? That's definitely open to debate. However, it's a known fact that a man, who was considered a profit, named Jesus of Nazareth lived. The Christians wrote of his existence, the Romans wrote of his existence and the Muslims wrote of his existence.

    Neither is Wal-Mart, but Wal-Mart sells books.

    Literature or faith seem a safe bet.

    You apparently believe it, where is your evidence? Or is this just mindless blind faith?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No, a man by that name didn't exist, Jesus is a romanization, the more likely name was Jehoshua.

    What I don't understand about this whole thing is why it matters. If you are going into Costco to buy a Bible why does it matter where it is placed?
