A Simi Valley pastor discovered earlier this week that his local Costco slapped “fiction” stickers on copies of the Bible on sale at the store.

Atheists, of course, were thrilled, as David Limbaugh predicted.

The triumph of the intolerant was short-lived. In the wake of criticism, Costco has now apologized and announced steps to correct the labels.

It should be duly noted that protests and criticism of the gaffe were made by peaceful and non-violent Americans exercising their free speech rights. Here’s a good question:

So: Can you imagine if Costco had treated the Koran the same way?

Unfortunate timing, indeed.
