US retail giant Costco has apologized after copies of the Bible labeled as "fiction" were found on sale at one of its stores, triggering protests by Christian groups.
Caleb Kaltenbach, a pastor at the Discovery Church in Simi Valley, California, tweeted a picture of the Holy Bible, with a bar-code price sticker clearly labeled "Fiction," last Friday.
"Costco has Bibles for sale under the genre of FICTION. Hmmmm .... " he wrote, prompting a surge of retweets and comments from both critics and some suggesting the description was accurate.
