    Costco labels bibles "Fiction"

    Costco -- the Bible is fiction | Fox News I have no opinion on this but does anyone have any outrage to share?

    Seems appropriate to me...

    Unless you believe that god actually wrote the Bible, then it is indeed a form of fiction that has noble purpose. This store, not being a bookstore has no theology section, but is kind enough to make Bibles readily available, which is respectful IMHO.

    Well - give them a chance to fix it, which might take time. If it was any other mislabeled genre or category no one would care - or notice.

    Costco came out with this:
    "We deeply regret the mislabeling of the Bible and meant no offense to anyone," the company wrote in an email to customers, Fox News reported. "The buyer has let us know that this was an error and the books are being pulled off the shelves to be re-marked."

    In a separate statement to Fox News, Costco blamed a distributor who'd mislabeled a "small percentage" of Bibles before shipping them.

    "However, we take responsibility and should have caught the mistake. We are correcting this with them for future distribution," Costco said in the statement. "All mislabeled Bibles were also immediately relabeled. We greatly apologize for the error."

    What have they been "relabeled" to? Propaganda?

    At the very least they should come with a parental advisory sticker.

    I'm pretty sure this story already came and went, Cosco revised the label iirc.
