Costco slaps ‘fiction’ label on Holy Bibles; customers shocked

[sharenow]

A California Costco store apparently considers the Holy Bible a work of fiction, and had it labeled and displayed as such when spotted by an area Christian pastor.

Pastor Caleb Kaltenbach from the Discovery Church spoke to Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes about what he discovered, photographed and tweeted while shopping at the Simi Valley Costco last week.


Starnes, with all his perfect snark, reported in part:

“All the Bibles were labeled as fiction,” the pastor told me. “It seemed bizarre to me.”

“People are pretty shocked and upset,” he told me. “We are supposed to be living in an era of tolerance, but what Costco did doesn’t seem too tolerant.”

I doubt they would label the Koran as fiction, Pastor Kaltenbach said. Heaven help us if they did.

“If they don’t believe in the Bible, that’s fine – but at least label it as ‘religion’ as some bookstores do, or ‘inspiration’,” he said.

So does the warehouse store that sells laundry detergent by the gallon have a problem with the Word of God?

I called Costco headquarters in Issaquah, Wash. hoping to get answers. The nice lady who answered the phone told me she was aware of the issue and chalked it up to a “human error at a warehouse.”

“It’s all fixed,” she said.

But actually, it’s not fixed – because there’s a boatload of Bibles in the Simi Valley store still marked as fiction.

At that point, the nice lady on the phone became not-so-nice and promptly informed me that Costco doesn’t talk to the press.

“Nothing to report,” she said curtly.

With all due respect, perhaps they should leave the reporting to the professionals and we’ll leave the bulk purchases of toilet paper to Costco.
