    Usually there's a religion section...
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    Lucky for Costco too, otherwise they'd have to give the bibles away.
    So follow me into the desert

    In the broadest sense the Library of Congress Classification System classifies it as "Class B -- Philosophy, Psychology, Religion".

    By way of comparison, the LCCS classifies works of fiction in "Class P -- Language and Literature".

    Can't go wrong using LCC subject headings.

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Whats wrong with relgious texts? But then I guess the headline would be Costco puts Bible on same the shelf as the Koran.

No. A belief remaining in place for centuries does not mean it is true.
