A Costco in Simi Valley found itself in a flap this week after a local pastor posted a photo on Twitter showing Bibles at the big-box store labeled as fiction.Caleb Kaltenbach, pastor of Discovery Church, came across the Bibles while shopping for a gift and tweeted the picture on Friday with the comment: “Costco has Bibles for sale under the genre of FICTION Hmmmm…”
That didn’t sit well with members of his congregation.
“I was completely offended. It’s wrong, and I believe that the Bible is real,” Shellie Dungan told KTLA-TV.
Word of the fiction label spread quickly on social media, propelling Kaltenbach onto local and national TV broadcasts, including Fox News, which labeled its segment “50 Shades of Fiction?”
Shellie Dungan slays me; the bible is “the actual word of god”?
Holy shit – so in a few scant years, when man-made global warming/climate change simulataneously raises world wide temps and sea levels (while providing little or no potable water), good ol’ Shellie is going to believe her lord god is set to scour the earth:
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
That doesn’t sound ominous; it sounds more like bad dialogue from a SkinAMax flic.
The Shellie Dungans of the world are idiots.
And the media is even more mind numbingly stupid for giving them any air time.
Whoever it was at COSTCO who slapped the ‘fiction’ lable on those tomes deserves a Nobel.
