Costco upsets Pastor after marking Bible as fiction

Simi Valley (KTLA) -- A pastor at a Simi Valley church made a perplexing discovery while shopping at a local Costco.


Caleb Kaltenbach, the pastor of Discovery Church, was looking for a gift for his wife when he saw Bibles labelled as \"Fiction.\"


So, he took a picture and tweeted it to his congregation with the caption, \"Costco has Bibles for sale under the genre of fiction…hmmmm.\"


\"I was completely offended. I believe the Bible is real and it shouldn't be marked fiction,\" church member Shellie Dungan said.


Costco issued an apology on Wednesday.


\"Costco's distributor mislabeled a small percentage of the Bibles, however we take responsibility and should have caught the mistake. We are correcting this with them for future distribution,\" Costco said in a statement. \"In addition, we are immediately relabeling all mislabeled Bibles. We greatly apologize for this error.\"
