On the one hand, if this were intentional, it wouldn't be the best thing to do. It would be a pretty snide joke, actually. On the other, I really doubt that this was the fault of someone high up in the company. It was probably either an honest mistake, or a prank from someone working in the factory that somehow slipped past.

Or it just refers to the fact that the Bible contains stories that are to some degree fictional, not literal history. Doesn't mean the whole thing is.

Or it could well be a prank by a customer - notice that the "fiction" sticker is sitting on top of another sticker.

Have we, as Christians, gotten to the point where we have made the Bible to be an idol among us. Instead of focusing on its message, we somehow have got to the point where people get offended by human error/mistake. Everything is a "persecution" against us Christians. We can no longer chalk this up to the fact that humans are infallible, NO! Someone at Costco is out to get all of us. We must protest this store with signs such as: Costco hates Christians, Costco calls Bible fake, God hates Costco.

Rise up brothers and sisters! Rise up and lets march to every Costco in your own area to let them know that we will not stand by and watch them mock our Bible - NO! They indeed must be protested for this shows their true nature towards us Christians. They hate us, they hate our words, they hate God.

Stop buying their groceries. Stop going there. Come one and come all - grab your Costco card and cut it up for the Lord! Rise up with us brothers and sisters and lets take this battle, a holy battle, to Costco to show them we wont back down....we never back down for we are Christians. Join with us. Join with the "religious right" to fight this battle. Contact the ACLJ. Contact Jay Sekulow. Contact your Congressman/woman, your Senator to let them know about the atrocities that are going on over at Costco.

The above comments were meant to be a parody - any details to anyone alive has been greatly exaggerated and shown to be false - this is only a test - also, if you cannot find humor within this post, may Christ lighten your heart so that you may have joy

I've shopped Costco. It's not unusual to find price tags covering one another in the event of a sale, or in some cases the stock person simply stamped a product twice with the pricing gun.

I'd hope it was an error on the part of a stock person. Otherwise, if it was malicious or Costco itself has made the determination, it is in poor taste.

Where we live now there is no local Costco. Has anyone ventured to their local Costco to see if the Bibles are labeled in this manner?

Luke 10:27 (Love God Above All, And Your Neighbor as yourself)
And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

Matthew 7:12 (Do unto others)
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Matthew 5:43-48 (Pray for those that persecute you)
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Luke 6:27-29 (Love your enemies.)
But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.

If they find a Christian mistaken in a field which they themselves know well and hear him maintaining his foolish opinions about our books, how are they going to believe those books in matters concerning the resurrection of the dead, the hope of eternal life, and the kingdom of heaven, when they think their pages are full of falsehoods on facts which they themselves have learnt from experience and the light of reason? Reckless and incompetent expounders of holy Scripture bring untold trouble and sorrow on their wiser brethren when they are caught in one of their mischievous false opinions and are taken to task by those who are not bound by the authority of our sacred books.
Isaiah 8:12-13 (NIV) "Do not call conspiracy everything that these people call conspiracy; do not fear what they fear, and do not dread it. The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy, he is the one you are to fear, he is the one you are to dread."

What category choices does Costco have for book price labels? If there isn't one specifically for religious texts, then whatever the person doing the labeling chooses is going to be wrong on some level or offensive to someone.
